Biola University Hosts Screening of “Fireproof”

Mar. 12, 2009 By Jenna Bartlo

LA MIRADA, CALIF. — Biola University, in partnership with Orange Coast Christian Outreach Week, is hosting a free screening of the recently released movie “Fireproof,” as part of Biola’s 50th Anniversary in the City of La Mirada celebration.

A question and answer session will immediately follow the viewing. The time, led by associate professor of communication studies and expert on the topic of marriage Tim Muehlhoff, will respond to questions regarding relationships and specifically marriage.

"Most individuals say that their relationship with their spouse is a priority,” said Muehlhoff.  “ Yet, financial needs, kids, and busy schedules constantly challenge that key commitment.  Fire Proof offers hope that even the most difficult challenges to marriage can be overcome."

Orange Coast Christian Outreach Week is a 7-day event encouraging others to attend events and host events reaching out to the Orange County community.

The event will begin at 7:00 p.m. on March 14, 2009 and will be held in Sutherland Auditorium at Biola University. The event is free and anyone is welcome.

The next event celebrating Biola's 50th anniversary in La Mirada is a debate between atheist Christopher Hitchens and apologist William Lane Craig on April 4, 2009. The title of the debate is Does God Exist? Find out more information at
