Newton school district felt ‘duped’ by YWAM Impact World Tour
During Monday night’s school board meeting at Aurora Heights Elementary, the district responded to the Youth With A Mission Impact World Tour performance at Berg Middle School.
“Where the issue came up, was that this thing (World Impact Tour) took a real strong evangelism turn. It more or less became an alter call during this program,” Superintendent Steve McDermott said. “This weekend it didn’t come off as it had been sold to us. Honestly, in my humble opinion, several folks were duped. In the future, we will be more careful about the rental of space and about how things are represented.”
McDermott said that he had heard from several citizens who expressed concerns with the show. One citizen, who spoke at the open forum and who attended the event, thanked the district for its explanation and said that the show “went evangelistic quite fast and quite deep.”
