UC to host Christian Illusionist the MAZE


Williamsburg, Ky– On September 22nd, 2011, University of the Cumberlands Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) in conjunction with the Kentucky Baptist Convention through the Youth Evangelism department will be hosting Christian Illusionist Jim Munroe, aka “The Maze,” in the Gatliff Chapel at 8 p.m. The event is free and is open to the public.

According to the website,, the MAZE is an experience that escapes the boundaries of any single definition. In stark contrast to the typical "magic show", MAZE presents a unique blend of illusion, intuition, psychology, humor, mystery and danger. The events that happen during a MAZE show leave you entertained, bewildered, disturbed and inadvertently pondering the question "How can I know what is really true?"

The first half of the show at UC will consist of Munroe performing different illusions and tricks while the second half will include a testimony and a handout from Munroe.

When asked about “The Maze,” BCM Director Dean Whitaker said, “I am looking forward to being amazed by The Maze.”
