Update On “Courageous” Releasing In Theaters On September 30th

I've been busy traveling getting the latest news out about Courageous. Lots of people are catching the vision for leveraging this film for ministry impact. So, I share it with you here that you may do the same. Here are several resources to help you better know about the movie and to help you develop a ministry strategy for your church.

Courageous First Look DVD– This 30-minute overview specifically for pastors and other ministry and business leaders shows five selected scenes from the movie with both Pastor Michael Catt and Producer Stephen Kendrick sharing from their perspectives about these scenes, the message of the film, and the intended impact for families, churches, and communities. This DVD is only available through scheduling a personal appointment with me as my travel schedule allows. It’s a great promo piece! Let me know if you wish to view it or have some of your ministry networks see it.

Private Advanced Courageous Movie Screenings - Provident Films has scheduled private advanced screenings of the full Courageous Movie for pastors and other ministry and business Leaders. These key influencer screenings are free but require reservations because seating will be limited. To find an event near you and reserve your seat, email me and I will send you an evite.

Start A Courageous Action Squad - An Action Squad allows churches, businesses, groups, and individuals to support the theater release of Courageous in their community. Much like getting a group together to buy tickets for a play or a sporting event, an Action Squad is a group of people working together to purchase tickets to see Courageous in their community. Action Squad leaders promote, partner with, and persevere to insure this faith-based film makes a local impact. Your Action Squad can purchase a showtime for Opening Weekend if Courageous is opening in your community. And if your town is not scheduled to release in your area, your Action Squad can bring Courageous to your town. To learn more and to register to be an Action Squad, go to www.courageousthemovie.com/takeaction.

Courageous Church Campaign Kit, Courageous Starter Pack, Courageous Living Bible Study, Honor Begins at Home: Courageous Bible Study, and Courageous Living: Dare to Take a Stand - This set of strategic resources will help pastors and other ministry leaders lead their church in spiritual preparation leading up to the release of Courageous, as well as resources to use as follow-up to the movie. Learn more about them at www.lifeway.com.

Courageous Movie Trailer - Provident Films has posted on the Courageous Movie website a live link to view the Courageous Movie trailer that has now been showing in theaters. It’s a gripping introduction to this powerful movie. View it and share it with others using the link www.courageousthemovie.com.

The Heart of Courageous Video - This is a 5-minute video introduction to the message of Courageous. View it and share it with others using the link www.courageousthemovie.com/home.

Hopefully you are sensing the growing momentum of Courageous for this fall. It will be the largest ministry opportunity churches will have for this type of impact in quite some time. Don’t miss it!

Until next time...share the journey and enjoy the ride!
