There are two Christ-based events fast approaching. First, next Friday, September 30, is the opening of “Courageous,” the latest film from the same studio that released “Fireproof” and “Facing the Giants.” Here is a brief synopsis for “Courageous”:
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they’re quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God … and to their children?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
I had the pleasure of attending an advanced screening of Courageous and I can tell you first-hand that it is an EXCELLENT movie! I heartily recommend it and all fathers should see this inspiring movie. And the opening weekend is the time to get as many as we can to see it so the theaters will carry it longer.
The movie will be released nationwide next Friday, September 30, and information about screenings can be found at www.courageousthemovie.com. They also have resources for your ministry to use to help promote the movie: www.courageousthemovie.com/takeaction.
