Jeff can work with the already-chosen theme of the weekend and develop messages for it, or he will work closely with the event planner to find the best topic for the group based on one of his books or previous retreat themes.
ZOMBIE KILLERS WEEKEND
Studies show todays Christian teenagers are growing increasingly more skeptical of faith and the church. They’re bending their morality to fit their desires and a huge reason for this is that they’ve sincerely tried to “live for Christ” and found it too difficult. Some experience a degree of success but are not able to maintain a consistent walk or win over sin, temptation and the sin nature within them.
Is it any wonder then that a majority of Christian teenagers fade away from Christ while in college?
What if you could empower your students to understand the negative forces at work within them? What if you could equip them to overcome sin, biblically and consistently?

ABOUT THE BOOK
Ben Forman was just an ordinary guy, a young professional starting his first job and falling in love with his girlfriend. Living on the outskirts of a southern city, he didn’t think the zombie activity so common in metropolitan areas would hit so close to home. But it was becoming clear that the mysterious infection reanimating the dead would soon be a worldwide epidemic.
Cutting-edge and culturally relevant, The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook is a unique combination of fiction and nonfiction. It delivers a fresh approach to sin, grace, and salvation, exposing the raging beast within us all, and how to overcome life as a zombie.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING THE ZOMBIE KILLERS WEEKEND
Jeff Kinley has found a way to communicate God’s grace to a new audience. The Christian Zombie Killers Handbook is culturally relevant, deeply perceptive and really inspires us to discover the truth for ourselves. In this volume, you will find a gripping, face-paced zombie survival story as good as any you’ll read in a mainstream horror novel or see in the latest Romero film. But, you’ll also find a parallel commentary providing a startlingly honest insight and unique perspective on our struggle with sin.” ~ Sean T. Page, author of War against the Walking Dead & The Official Zombie Handbook
I would highly recommend Jeff Kinley as speaker as I have used him three times in the past and he has always been excellent to work with prior to and during the ministry event. He is very effective reaching this generation of young people and keeping their attention, enabling him to share a life changing message. In September 2011 he led a “Zombie Killers Weekend” for over fifteen different churches–using the theme of his new book—having a powerful impact on our students. The students were able to relate to the content while Jeff presented five powerful messages. I plan to use Jeff in the future with our students and our entire church family.” ~ Jack McCarty, Pastor, Huntsville, AR
