What I learned from dying!

3 pm HST / 6 pm PsT / 9 pm EsT

In January 2003, Vincent Todd Tolman was found dead in the bathroom of a small restaurant. He had been dead for over half an hour at the age of 25.


When paramedics arrived, they put him in a body bag and took him away. A rookie paramedic listened to an inner voice telling him, “This one’s not dead," and was guided to risk his career, break all protocols, and try to resuscitate Vincent. Miraculously, he restarted Vincent’s heart, Vincent survived and was in a coma for three days.


Join us on Tuesday, April 2 as we welcome Vincent Tolman who will share the account of his journey to Heaven and back and what it's like to be dead for 45 minutes.  Offering profound insights into the mysteries of life, death, and the afterlife, Vinney will share his extraordinary journey of defying the odds and returning from the brink of death. Vinney will share what he learned while on the other side, how much God loves him, and how much he should love himself.


Prepare to be moved, challenged, and inspired as we delve into the depths of the human spirit and the resilience of the human soul as Vinney shares insights from what he saw when he was dead for 30 minutes and discusses the 10 principles he learned about the afterlife.


Vincent’s story is not just a story of hope but is also packed with advice on how we can live our lives based on what he learned during his experience.


Vincent Todd Tolman was born in Arlington, Texas. Since his Near-Death Experience, he has traveled worldwide, living in Cambodia and Thailand. He has worked as a home builder, computer technician, and producer for the television and film industry. He loves animals, meditating, and spending time in nature. Vinney is the author of The Light After Death which details his Near-Death Experience. His greatest priorities are his relationship with his Creator, his family, and the people he meets. He lives in Las Vegas, Nevada with his wife, Andrea, and their two children.

APRIL 2, 2024 -Vinney Tolman


Over 20 years ago, Vinney Tolman was pronounced dead. He was literally zipped up into a bodybag and loaded into the back of an ambulance. While his body was lifeless, Vinney experienced life on the other side. His story is absolutely incredible, and one you won't want to miss!
