Hi folks, I have some very exciting news to share. My home church New Dawn Christian Village will be teaming up with Mt. Rubidoux SDA Church in Riverside to produce the film next year. And we’ll be kicking off the whole production with a “Your Love Is Strong” conference in Los Angeles in January, themed “Redefining Purity.” The word purity has almost become a bad word in certain circles, as it’s often associated with guilt, shame, and what you shouldn’t do. But true purity isn’t about the absence of something, but rather the presence of someone — the presence of an intimate relationships with living, breathing Almighty God, from which all power to live a holy life comes. The conference will bring together churches and speakers from all over the city (and hopefully the country) as a sort of symposium on how we can totally reframe the way we preach, teach and talk about sexual purity in the Christian church. It all starts with creating an atmosphere where people can actually have an encounter with God, rather than inundating them with information about what they shouldn’t do.
As you can imagine I am basically beside myself with excitement about what God is doing. It was always my dream that this whole thing wouldn’t just be a movie, but a movement. It’s about Revival, especially in younger generations of Christians.
I have to give a shout out to the amazing team that has formed to bring all of this about: Pastor Michael Kelly from Mt. Rubidoux. Pastor Erwin Guevara and his wife Joanne from New Dawn. Executive Producer Marilyn Beaubien, and Producer Elizabeth Nelsen. My literal, absolute Dream Team of powerful, prayerful, Spirit-filled men and women of God… I’m just waiting to wake up and realize this is all a dream. 🙂
Please continue to cover us in prayer as we start to lay the groundwork for this ministry and movement. Satan likes to keep it real in the spiritual warfare department, no joke. And if you’d like to donate to the cause, I definitely won’t stop you. 😉 You can make a tax-deductible donation toward the project here.
Thank you for all your prayers, encouragement, and support!!!
“Shouts of joy and victory
resound in the tents of the righteous:
‘The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!
The Lord’s right hand is lifted high;
the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!'”
