Heaven Bound

Ted and Josie Hoover had it all: a respected position in the community and a comfortable life, all thanks to Ted’s job at the Mr. Mitzky Organic Gourmet Gluten-Free Dog Food Company. But that all changes one fateful day when Ted makes a terrible mistake at work that accidentally kills the dog food company’s beloved mascot. He quickly becomes a national villain and the laughingstock of the entire town.

No one will hire him and suddenly the Hoovers are unemployed and in debt. Desperate for money, Josie comes up with a farfetched plan to steal jewelry from the local millionaire, Dr. Drake. In their minds, the plan is practically foolproof. They will break into the house, heist the jewels and pawn them to pay their debts. Then they will give them back to the doctor once they get back on their feet.

It might have worked, too, except for two unforeseen situations. First, Josie’s lazy little brother, Moochie, overhears the couple’s plans and now wants to be part of the great jewelry heist. Although he’s the bungling type, the duo finds they have no other choice but to let him “help.”

The other hitch? Little do they know, but Dr. Drake himself is having a little spiritual awakening and is suddenly bent on saving the soul of at least one lucky individual. That’s where the three bumbling burglars come in. When he catches them in his home, he decides God has answered his prayers and has given him three souls to save. And since Dr. Drake’s home is equipped with a state-of-the-art security system, the three burglars find themselves trapped.

As Dr. Drake begins his mission to convert the trio, Ted, Josie and Moochie are convinced they have stumbled upon the creepiest place imaginable. After all, what kind of home features hidden rooms and can keep you locked inside with no way to leave? And when Dr. Drake insists they stay until they have made a decision to follow Jesus, they become desperate to find a way out. Will Dr. Drake’s crazy house drive them apart or bring them closer to one another and God?

In the wrong place at the wrong time, Jack accidently witnesses a drug lord commit murder. The FBI relocates him to a job as an associate Pastor of a church in a town where the gangsters will never look.

Can I Get a Witness Protection?

He just needs protection, but this church is in desperate need of a miracle! Will a man pretending to be a minister actually become the answered prayer of a dying church? The faith–inspired comedy Can I Get a Witness Protection will bring laughs to the entire family as a man and his wife find hope in the most uncomfortable and awkward situation.

Jack Jacobs lives an innocent life with his new wife Julie in L.A. He owns a successful truck repair business, while she thrives on a lavish lifestyle of luxury design and fashion. But when Jack accidently witnesses a dangerous drug lord commit murder, life as he knows it drastically changes. Before he can even process the series of events, the FBI immediately uproots them from their comfortable home and enters them into a Federal Witness Relocation Program.

Relocating to an unknown city for protection seems imperative, until Jack, who has no spiritual or religious interests, learns that a part of his relocation program requires him to serve as an associate pastor at a half-dead church in the middle of nowhere.

Desperate for protection from gangsters who may be looking to kill them, the two reluctantly leave their luxury L.A. lifestyle and try to play their part, struggling to survive this drastic life change while meeting characters who are full of spunky personality and sarcastic humor.

Though it may seem like pretending to be a pastor will be an easy low-profile job with very minimal responsibilities, everything changes when the senior pastor keels over and dies – leaving Jack to become the pastor of the congregation.

In an awkward yet extremely laughable series of events, Jack and Julie slowly get accustomed to their new roles. Will they become the hope the church is waiting for?

You were born to live Fully Alive! In a hilarious comedy performance, comedian and inspirational speaker Ken Davis takes you through the thrills, chills, and journeys of life in a way that will encourage you to rekindle any lost flames of adventure, joy, and excitement that once burned in your soul…starting today! After all, the glory of God is man fully alive.

But Ken admits, living fully alive doesn’t come without pain and harsh realities! Even so, you won’t be able to keep your composure at his priceless narrations of facing the toughest moments of life. From marital spats and the woes of aging, to embracing grandfatherhood and the rude awakening of being overweight, Ken proves it is possible to find light in the weirdest places.

After chuckling at life’s most awkward moments, Ken leaves you inspired and ready to live the full life God has prepared for you. Even more powerful than learning how to laugh through pain, it was really learning how to live in the power of Jesus Christ’s resurrection that truly changed the life of the award-winning author who admittedly excels at competitive sleeping.

You’ll no longer waste years living in quiet desperation. Ken’s side-splitting humor and spiritual inspiration delights and enriches audiences of all ages. The comedy Fully Alive is based on his book of the same title.

Watch, laugh, and start your journey to life – Fully Alive.

Christmas For A Dollar

Set during the Great Depression in the mid-1930’s, this true, life-changing story is about a family that learns to experience the real joy of Christmas. At a time usually full of love and celebration, the Kamp family faces struggle and despair. The mother has unexpectedly passed away, and somehow, someway, they must endure the sorrow and heartache of life without her. Summoning their courage, they do their best to love one another and keep their family intact, but the hardships seem overwhelming.

Not only must the family face disease and sickness, but also a mountain of debt due to their medical bills. As the holidays approach, the children doubt they will receive any presents for Christmas that year.

Much to their surprise, however, their father scrapes together a dollar’s worth of coins for them to spend on gifts. And as each child decides on a gift to give to another member of their family, their whole attitude toward Christmas is miraculously transformed. They spend hours genuinely debating what others in their family would cherish most. And as they do so, they quickly discover that the spirit of Christmas lies in their love and generosity and not the price tag of the gift.

Directed by John Lyde, Christmas for a Dollar is a terrific, family-friendly film that reminds viewers of true courage in the face of adversity. Effectively portraying the Great Depression, the story delves into issues of struggle and heartbreak for a family that longs to have its hope and faith restored. Viewers can’t help but cheer the characters on as they work to overcome their adversities and look to one another for love and support. Moving and inspirational, Christmas for a Dollar is an instant Christmas classic your family will be sure to love.

The Jesus Film

What is the most-watched movie in all of history? You may guess films like The Godfather, Gone with the Wind or E.T. But it’s actually none of those. In fact, it’s a film with little publicity and yet, because of it, every four seconds, somewhere in the world, someone makes a decision to follow Christ. What is it? The Jesus Film.

The impact of this film has been amazing. In fact, every day 21,000 people accept Jesus because they have watched it. That’s 630,000 per month and more than 7.5 million per year! It’s like the population of the entire city of Seattle coming to Christ every 27.5 days. And yet, if you are like most people, you may have never seen it.

Called by some “one of the best-kept secrets in Christian missions,” a number of missions experts have acclaimed the film as one of the greatest evangelistic tools of all time. Since 1979 The Jesus Film has been viewed by several billion people all around the globe, and has resulted in more than 225 million men, women and children making decisions to follow Jesus.

Based on the Gospel of Luke, The Jesus Film has now been translated into more than 1,050 languages, with a new language being added nearly every week. This brings God’s Word to people in more than 220 countries in languages they know and understand. By God’s grace, it is yielding a spiritual harvest of unprecedented results.

The story of The Jesus Film is not only one of effective evangelism, but also a powerful tool for expanding the church worldwide. In fact, according to Dr. Stephen Steele, former CEO of DAWN Ministries (c. 2001), “Three-quarters of all churches planted in the last decade used The Jesus Film as part of their church-planting strategy.” God is definitely using this film in powerful ways to reach people and build spiritual movements across the globe!

The Perfect Gift

Meet Maxine Noelle Westray, a spoiled schoolgirl who couldn’t care less about the upcoming Christmas holiday, which conflicts with her own birthday celebration. Stacy is Maxine’s newly divorced, overworked mother who struggles to keep up with her daughter’s demands. Despite their relative wealth and prestige, Christmas is a time of drudgery, anxiety and stress. And despite all the Christmas gifts and parties, it’s not getting any better.

In another part of town lives a disillusioned young minister named Tony. Tony is searching for enlightenment in a world that has seemingly written off Christmas as nothing more than a wintertime ritual.

Into each of these lives comes Jess, a friendly but mysterious drifter who moves into their small community. No one knows where the mysterious man has come from. All they know about him are the things they have experienced firsthand: He is kind, he is pleasant, he looks like Jesus and he knows a lot about an awful lot of things. He’s even volunteered to build Tony a manger for the church lawn.

What is most surprising about him, however, is the wisdom he so willingly shares with others about life and faith, not to mention an eagerness to help people understand the real reason for the Christmas season: God’s gift of sacrifice, kindness and love.

In this light and inspiring holiday movie, see what happens when a spoiled brat, an overworked mother and a disillusioned minister meet a man who seems to embody the true meaning of the Christmas season. From the producers of The Perfect Stranger series, The Perfect Gift is a simple, heartwarming tale of rediscovering Christmas and the true meaning of the greatest celebration the world has ever known. Filmed in Kentucky, the film stars Christina Fougnie, Amy Hess, Matt Wallace and Jefferson Moore as Jesus Christ.

The Chosen

The Chosen depicts the beautiful story of the first Christmas through the eyes of Simon, a young shepherd who has a genuine heart but who lacks respect from his peers because of his physical disability.

Based on the true story from the Gospel of Luke, director Dallas Jenkins (What If…, The Resurrection of Gavin Stone) sets the scene during the time when Augustus Caesar became Emperor of Rome. The Hebrew people and priests are burdened, but they have found their hope for relief from heavy Roman oppression and taxation in the coming of the Messiah who would save God’s people.

So for Simon, whose imperfections make him almost an exile among his fellow Israelites, and who is often insulted and treated with disgust by shepherds and synagogue leaders alike, news of a Savior is intriguing. He is eager to understand more about the ancient prophecies of the promised Messiah who is able to bring about the healing he’s always wished for.

However, Simon is yet again rejected by his people when he attempts to enter into the synagogue to hear the message of hope. Because of perceived filthiness, Simon is immediately kicked out and denied the opportunity to learn more about the One who can heal his body and end all oppression.

A miraculous revelation, though, changes everything for this young, disabled shepherd whose entire life has been one of suffering and rejection.

That very same night, just as Simon begins to feel his greatest despair, a revelation of new hope is given to him. The Chosen tells the story of how a once “useless” and lame shepherd is not only healed, but how he also becomes a part of the greatest moment in history.

Altar Egos

As the inheritor of his dad’s church, Pastor John knows his church has been stagnant for too long. Desperate to see their church grow, Pastor John and his wife, Betsy, change the Christmas pageant, only to have the church go berserk. Members are so distraught that the longtime choir director, Mary Margaret, leads the entire choir out of the church in protest. They even boycott the church services and begin to discuss hiring a new pastor to take Pastor John’s place.

Clearly, Mary Margaret has the upper hand in this psychological tug of war. To win her over, Pastor John has to first bridge the generation gap and change her perception of him as “just a kid.” Question is, how?

In a hilarious series of events, Pastor John and his friend Jack disguise themselves as elderly gentlemen in order to build a relationship with Mary Margaret and gain her trust. Stopping at nothing to win her favor, they become involved in the lives of the church elderly, causing trouble and hysterical mishaps along the way.

As they attempt to get into Margaret’s good graces, they continue to hope she changes her mind and convinces the choir to return to the church. But, in a series of humorous attempts and antics with the elderly group, Pastor John learns that the wounds in Mary run deeper than just the Christmas pageant.

Will Pastor John learn the hard lesson of how to truly love the unlovable or risk the well-being of his church and family?
