Your mission, if you choose to accept it:
1. If you have a DVD of The God Who Wasn’t There, place it in a Christian church between now and Easter Sunday. Take pictures of yourself doing it (very important), and email them with your report to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can publish your mission on the site. In return, you will get a brand new DVD of The God Who Wasn’t There to replace the one you planted. If you also place some flyers in the same church (see below) your DVD will be personally inscribed and signed by The God Who Wasn’t There director Brian Flemming.
2. If you don’t currently have a DVD, download a flyer or two at this link, and print out a bunch of copies. Hide these copies creatively (see below) in one or more Christian churches between now and Easter Sunday. Take pictures of yourself doing at least one plant (very important), and email them with your report to email@example.com so that we can publish your mission on the site. In return, you will get a brand new DVD of The God Who Wasn’t There. If your mission hits more than one church, your DVD will be personally inscribed and signed by Brian Flemming.
Phonecam pix are fine–it just has to show the action happening. Another shot of the church itself would be nice, too. Examples and tips for smooth sailing are below.
To sum up, email your mission report to firstname.lastname@example.org. The report should include 1) Your description of the mission. 2) Pictures from the mission. 3) Your mailing address, so we can send your DVD. 4) Any inscription you would like if you’re getting a signed DVD. (We won’t publish your name or any personal information about you on the site–just your mission report and pictures. Tell us the nickname you want us to use if you want to be credited as other than “Anonymous Operative”.)

–Use your imagination, and adapt to your surroundings. Case a few different churches. Some are open, some are not. You don’t have to choose the first one you see.
–An ideal hit would be planting a DVD in a hymnal right there in the sanctuary. That way it will most likely be discovered during a church service, probably the Easter Sunday service. Case a few churches and see how easy it is to get into the sanctuary. Some are surprisingly accessible, and you’ll be left alone as you “pray” in the pews.
–Try to imagine the moment that your DVD or flyer is discovered. What would make the most dramatic impact? How can you increase the likelihood that a child will discover it first?
–If you feel a bad vibe in the middle of a mission, just abort. There are churches everywhere. The next one you try will probably be a cakewalk. (A regular one, not the Iraq kind.) Just approach each target as if you are looking around, interested in the architecture (that’s why you have the camera). Then if it feels right, plant your items.
–The basic deal is that you get a signed DVD for one standard mission. But if you want to do more, please do. Plant multiple items at one location even if you’re planting a DVD. You’ll be suitably rewarded beyond your initial combat pay (CD soundtrack, signed poster, etc.).
IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING
But we’ll say it anyway:
Only go through unlocked doors. Do not harm any church property. No graffiti, stickers, etc. We’re spreading knowledge, not harm.
Be polite and upbeat on any messages you write with your planted items.
The overall point: If people are to criticize us, it should be for telling the truth, because we can defend that. We don’t want to have to defend against vandalism or breaking and entering. Don’t let them change the subject.
