Film, The Spiritual Weapon

The church has at their fingertips a powerful spiritual weapon, one that could help us win back the culture and reveal God’s glory to hungry souls, but sadly it’s  being overlooked. This isn’t done on purpose. It’s simply because the full power of storytelling and video is misunderstood. I was saved not by a church or local outreach, but through watching a video. This talk is about the transformative power of stories and the spiritual calling of the filmmaker/content creator as a gatekeeper.
