Spirit & Truth is funded! Thank you all for helping make this happen.
Here's where we're at now... We have weeks left and the more we can raise the better this film will be.
Stretch Goal 1: International Interviews
A story of worship in America is great, but the film could be on another level if we can get outside the country and into the roots and churches of other cultures.
If you still haven't supported the movie, now is the perfect time. And if you have, please continue to share it with your friends!
Week after week, billions of Christians all over the world gather together in church buildings, homes, and secret locations to participate in an activity that dates back to the creation of the world. They worship.
From euphoric emotional rock shows to solemn sanctuaries where men in robes are surrounded by stained glass, philosophies on how we should approach God are all over the map. Does it matter how we worship God? Is it just about our preference? Does God care how He is worshipped?
I believe that the way we worship God is the most important thing we do in all of life. I want to make a film that explains what Biblical worship is all about.
As a Reformed filmmaker, I'm passionate about making the exploration of the glorious truths of God clear and enjoyable. In making my first documentary film Calvinist, I learned so much about the craft of filmmaking, and I'm confident Spirit & Truth will be better in every way. I hope that by watching this film, people will become excited to learn about what God has to say about worship.
By supporting this project you are helping to show the world what biblical worship is all about. As more people gain a better understanding of what God desires in worship, God will be more greatly glorified by His people. Here are some rewards to show my appreciation for your generosity.
My primary challenge in completing this film with the excellence this glorious subject deserves is funding. Spirit & Truth is an independently financed film. I rely exclusively on donations and crowd-funding to finance the expenses that come with directing, producing and editing a feature-length documentary film. I hope to continue to gain the support of the grassroots community for support in order to make sure this campaign is successfully funded and Spirit & Truth is completed to the highest standards. If this is the kind of content you want to continue to see, it can only happen with your help.
Risks and challenges
If one pastor watches this film and reconsiders the way his church is worshipping, then a whole congregation will bring more glory to God. That is what I consider success.
The balance of teaching weighty doctrine in an enjoyable, approachable way is the most difficult part of this process. It's also what makes it all worth it.
