The event had over 43,500 participants.  This is the fourth year for the WBSG and the response shattered all previous records for number of participants, audience active engagement, and ministry impact.  This year’s WBSG, using notes from the new Beyond Suffering Bible/ New Living Translation, featured daily devotions and honest, real-life discussion about struggle and suffering, and where God fits into the big questions of life.  The WAY-FM DJs, Joni Eareckson Tada, and several Christian artists shared personal stories about their own struggles and pain.  “What an amazing World’s Biggest Small Group!” said Faron Dice, Chief Content Officer for WAY Media, Inc.  “We invited our listeners to get-real with us, and they did.  We received hundreds of responses and prayer requests during the month.”
