Heaven is for Real Ministries

It all started with a family from small-town Nebraska...

 

Heaven is for Real Ministries was established in May of 2011 due to the overwhelming response to the book “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo. We are dedicated to sharing our story with anyone who wants to hear it for the sole purpose of lifting up the name of Jesus Christ and His church.

As we tour around the world bringing the hope of Heaven everywhere we go, we remember that it is only by the grace of Jesus that we are able to do what we do.  We live in light of His sacrifice, and we walk in light of his call on our lives.

Just as Colton's trip was no accident, we believe that you being on our website is no accident either.  Maybe you are here to connect with our correspondence team and ask us questions about Heaven.  Maybe you are here because you desperately need someone to pray with you.  Or maybe you are interested in finding out more about bringing Todd and Colton to your town.  

Whatever the case, we want to say welcome, and thanks for stopping by.

 
 

Our Books

 
 

Coming in September

If our first book was all about the "then" and "there" of Heaven, God is for Real is all about the "here" and "now" of earth.  People are tired of pat answers offered up in "churchy" language explaining away their biggest questions.  What bothers us most about our faith is often quite real and gritty, and yet we often do not approach these concerns with these types of answers.

In God is for Real, Todd charges into these subjects with a fireman's courage, a small-town friend's vulnerability, and a local pastor's compassion. He helps articulate the questions that people have, then gives them relevant biblical wisdom for taking their next steps in faith.

We can't wait to share this new book with you!

 
 
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.
