We’re proud to announce Take Flight!, the latest digital resource to help the Church grow in the light of the Bible! 

Take Flight! takes adventurous souls on a worldwide trip through little-known chapters of the Christian story from far-flung destinations around the globe.

Read about:

  • A former samurai, a priest, and a Portuguese sailor who form the first Christian mission to Japan.

  • The Methodist church that cobbles together a church aboard a retired ship to reach out to a group of sailors.

  • An African-American missionary who takes a brave stand against a tyrant’s cruelty.

  • A Confucian scholar who cheats on an essay contest—a dubious first step in what would become a long Christian ministry.

These stories are only the beginning! Go to logos.com/takeflight and you’ll find a world map featuring fascinating locales around the globe. Visit every destination to fill your passport and receive a free gift worth over $70! Share Take Flight! with your community to encourage them in the faith. 

Explore Take Flight! and let us know what you think!

One suggestion: have labels to mark places instead of just hovering over a spot. didn't know where to start so I just hovered over the whole world until my mouse/hand changed.

Will you take suggestions as to passport destinations?

Do you have a future list of destinations?

Will these destinations also have links to FL resources that are either owned or on the website?

I could see a whole bunch of things you could do with Take Flight. Very neat and good job so far in your initial stages!

The free gift from participating in this program was amazing! History of the Christian Church (8 Volumes) - Philip Schaff. 

Am so thankful and grateful to Almighty God and Faithlife.

This was a cool promo. I wish there were some alternate free gift for those of us who view the whole series but end up with empty carts because we already own the Schaff. Not the end of the world, but it was a letdown.

I completed filling in my passport (visiting all the map locations) over the course of several days.  A button appears at the top of the web page with "Click here to claim your free gift!"  Every time I have clicked that button and submitted my information I receive "Server Unavailable  Could not log you in because the server could not be reached."

I would very much like to receive the gift after visiting all the locations, reading all the stories, and checking out the resources advertised.

Hi Thomas, 

We had some technical issues with one of our systems internally. I'll forward this on to Customer Service and have them unlock the free gift on your account. Thanks for letting us know you had this issue.

Hi Chris,

I, too, received the Lyris "Server Unavailable" error message after visiting all twenty-two stops on the Take Flight! site.  Do you think you might be able to help me add the Schaff "History of the Christian Church" resource to my Logos library?

Thanks Logos for the cool activity.  My favorite stops were probably the ones with St. Nicholas, the mysterious enclave of Jews in the middle of China, and the big church inside of a ship.  It is great to see all the different peoples of the world hearing and responding to the Gospel message!

Brian, thank you for this fine set of readings.  All were extremely significant and worthwhile. l found almost all to be new, refreshing, educational, inspiring.

However, like several others the gift was not available upon completion.  Pls add to my account.

Tks.

Phil

I have the Schaff resource anyway, so no need to take any action, but I also got the 503 error.
