Mentalist Drew Worsham TellsCBU Students To Use Their Gifts For God

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (April 13, 2015) -- California Baptist University students were captivated April 10 by chapel speaker Drew Worsham, a mentalist and illusionist who entertained students with mental games before sharing his testimony.

Worsham, who is also a pastor at a church in Washington, brought the audience to applause when he appeared to successfully read his participants minds' by guessing their names or words they were thinking without being told. At one point, he asked a participant to open a book and pick a word. Worsham then wrote the word down before his participant said it. The audience erupted when the participant uttered the word written on the paper by Worsham.

Audience members were quick to voice their fascination and skepticism.

"I have no idea how he was able to do it, but it was fun to watch," said Brittany Leary, a freshman English major."I wish I could figure out how he did it

Worsham said he uses illusionism as a platform to share the gospel. He spoke mainly on the point of using skills to glorify Christ.

"If I can take this random gift and use it to get your attention for just a moment, then I want to share with you the one thing that has changed my life," Worsham said. "Whatever it is you do, do it all to point to and champion Jesus. Every one of you has been blessed with gifts and abilities. I believe that God has called you to use this to point to Jesus."
