Last week, I had the privilege of brainstorming with the Sherwood Pictures Team and LifeWay leadership for the upcoming “Courageous Bible Study” based on the Courageous movie coming in September 2011. I was humbled when they asked me to be a part of the writing process, and I am even more humbled after spending a week working on this material.
I can’t go into too many details concerning the film or the curriculum, but I can share some things with you so you can make this a matter of prayer:
- Kendrick Bros are Legit – Spending time with the brothers who serve as the writers, actor, producers, and director behind these movies (Courageous, Fireproof, Facing the Giants, Flywheel), I can honestly say these men love God. They have bathed this project in prayer and worked according to biblical mandates. Alongside these guys, Michael Catt and Jim McBride are strong, committed men who want to call men to a higher standard. My time with this crew and the LifeWay team stretched me beyond belief. If you have seen their products, I can now say, that they are men of integrity.
- The Movie is Powerful – I got to see an early edit of the film, and if you thought Fireproof was powerful, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Afterwards, they wanted feedback and all we could do was call our kids and tell them we wanted to be better men. I can’t wait for you to see it September 2011.
- This Could Change Your City – This whole project is going after men to rise up and be who God has called them to be. Whether you need to bring a friend to see this movie or get your entire church to go through this campaign, you need to get after it. God is all over this project and it has the potential to change your city if your men will rise up!
- I Need Your Prayers – As I begin my part of studying Scripture, praying, and developing curriculum that goes alongside this film, I would treasure your prayers. This whole project has experienced spiritual warfare, and I know that I will face it as well. Please pray that the Holy Spirit guides me to pull out the truths of Scripture and let this project impact men, families, churches, city, and the world.
Honor begins at home.
