GOSHEN — Three Goshen College employees will present a behind-the-scenes look at the documentary “Breaking Down Barriers: Journeys of the Apostle Paul” as part of the college’s Afternoon Sabbatical series at 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 1, in Sauder Concert Hall.

Filmed and produced by Goshen College students, the documentary takes viewers through the journey of the Apostle Paul. The film follows Bob Yoder, campus minister and assistant professor of youth ministry, and David Sparks, director of Footstep Ministries, as they guide viewers through cities such as Philippi, Corinth, Rome, Athens and Thessaloniki.

Seth Conley, assistant professor of communication, and Kyle Hufford, FiveCore Media general manager, led a team of nine students through Greece and Rome for three weeks in May 2012 to collect footage exploring how Paul ministered to the Jews, non-believers and early churches. Since the filming, six additional students have worked on editing the documentary alongside producers Conley and Hufford.

The event is free and open to the public.
