Louie Zamperini, ’36 Olympic Athlete, WWII Bomber, POW, Subject of NY Times Bestseller Unbroken, and True American Hero, Coming to VantagePoint Church Sunday, April 28 @ 8:30AM, 10:00AM & 11:30AM.

Louie Zamperini’s life story was featured in the NY Times bestselling book, Unbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit. From a childhood delinquent, to an Olympic runner, and finally a WWII Japanese prison camp survivor, his life has been a testament to resilience and redemption.

Zamperini was favored to win the 1940 Olympics as a runner, choosing instead to enlist in the US Army Air Corp. After his bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, he and two others survived and drifted for a record 47 days. He was rescued by the Japanese Navy, taken to a POW camp and held true to his country after 2 1/2 years of torture and brutality. After the war’s end, he experienced a conversion to Christianity and is dedicated to spending the remainder of his life extending forgiveness to those who had tortured him. Complete information and directions are located on the church’s website www.vantagepointchurch.org, or by calling Lead Pastor Mark Lee at (951) 751-0100 or email pastorvpc@gmail.com.
