Church People Coming To Theaters March 13: A Review + Giveaway #ChurchPeopleMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork #ChurchPeopleFilm

Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame based than Gospel-driven.

But when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new Believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves.

When you think of Christian films, what comes to mind? Let's be honest, there are a lot of preconceived notions about the genre...and many of them are perhaps not the most positive. Throw all those ideas out the window... Church People is unlike any other Christian film you've ever experienced. 

In this movie, we meet Guy- a youth pastor who has grown tired of the showmanship that his church has become. While he tries to get back to basics, others at the church... well, let's just say their stunts are getting bigger than ever. The result? A hilarious movie that will make you laugh...and make you think at the same time!

How many of us know of a church/pastor who seems to be more into the showmanship than sharing the gospel? Many years ago, my family started attending a well known church near our home. At first, it seemed great and we truly enjoyed the atmosphere and the activity. After some time however it seemed to change. Instead of promoting Jesus, this church seemed more and more to be promoting itself. Unfortunately, that's not as uncommon as we may like. This movie sheds a light on that very serious issue happening in churches everywhere... but in a way that is entertaining as well. I found myself laughing out loud many times throughout the movie thanks to the great talent of the cast. I particularly loved Joey Fatone's character, perhaps the funniest in the film! By having a sense of humor about it, the message came across perfectly, but didn't feel preachy in the slightest. While most of the movie had me laughing, in the end I found myself reaching for the tissues. This was truly a great movie and one that all Christians should take the chance to watch... you will not regret it. 

Church People will be in select theaters and churches starting tomorrow March 13. Learn more and grab your tickets here:
