Helloween

We are excited about the 2016 tours, which will be our 14th season of Helloween! We have prayed and sought God for His will and believe that this year’s event will be something you will not want to miss. Please join us for this life-changing event. Make sure you get here early to get a spot for the night. (Dates and times are below).

For groups, you can call the number below to see if any reservations are available. Please note that leaving us a message for a reservation is not a guarantee the reservation has been made. You must receive confirmation from our staff. If you do not have confirmation from our staff of a reservation, we cannot guarantee your access to this event because it is first come, first serve for each night. We have a total of 13 nights this year to try and accommodate the demand for this event, so if you do not get in one night, please try another night.

Online reservations are also available this year and may be made for singles to groups of all sizes.  The link to our reservation page on Eventbrite is listed below. Please note that online reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the date and time that you hope to attend.  As with making a reservation by phone, online reservations are awarded on a first come, first serve basis.

To see a sample of what Helloween has been like in the past, you can watch our YouTube videos below. Connect with Helloween on Facebook to see what others are saying about this out-reach ministry. And as always, you won’t know how scary it really is, until you know how scary REAL is…

About Helloween:

Helloween was established at First Assembly of God in 2003 by the youth group (which would later become known as Ignited 12:29). The first year of Helloween was the birth of a ministry by a group of kids that needed a way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. We had no clue what it would look like or how many people would actually come to a church for a “haunted house”. We thought maybe a couple of hundred people might come through in the week straight span that we ran the event. To our surprise, God brought in a couple hundred people the first night, even though it was cold and rainy. We were amazed at how God could use about 14 kids with a passion to share Jesus with others, and see dozens of people give their lives to Christ.

The goal of Helloween has always been to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with as many people as we can, and then give them a chance to make a decision to have a relationship with Him. We built this out-reach on the basis of Jude 23, which says, “save others by snatching them from the fire; to others show mercy, mixed with fear—hating even the clothing stained by corrupted flesh.” So, every year, we plan out scenes that we feel God would want us to share with you, in order to try and save some … because we love them. We craft the scenes as real as possible to show the reality of the decisions that each of us make every day; the main decision being whether or not to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. After a couple of years, someone looked at our event and made the comment that “you won’t know how scary it really is, until you know how scary real is.” This has been our motto ever since; to share the reality of life, the consequence of rejecting God, and the immense love that God has for each of us.

Since that first year of Helloween, God has allowed this out-reach ministry to become something that affects thousands of lives every year, along with the dozens of volunteers that actually work the event. We are blessed to have a church body that comes together for long nights of ministry in many different aspects. This truly is a team effort, and we are thankful for a home church that allows us to produce such an event, and a community that is willing to bring their lost friends and family members to an event that could change their lives. And we know, that nothing that we have or can do is enough. Any lives changed, souls saved, bodies healed, or spirits renewed is completely the work of God’s Holy Spirit; and we are most grateful to Him for the work He allows us to do for Him.
