PROJECT :: Movement Series

A Four Short Film Series sharing the modern day stories of Biblical Characters and their struggle to pursue God through adversity.

JACOB

"For some, an entire lifetime is spent wrestling. Straining, grabbing, pulling, succumbing. Engaged close and deep with false identity, worldly pleasure, pain, rejection, money, fear, anxiety, depression, disappointment, selfishness. But in this hour, there is a Jacob generation rising who has come to the end of themselves…weary of the running…realizing wholeheartedly that they were born to wrestle not with the trappings of this world but with the lover of our their soul. Not letting go until he changes their walk, gives them a new name and instills HIS DNA. You are that generation. You are that people. Identified not by your hobbies, your last name, your physical appearance, your fashion, your career path…No, you are known by the nature of your up close and personal engagement with HIM. You are those who wrestle with God and LIVE to tell about it." 

DAVID

"Here you stand in the days of your youth with wide-eyed anticipation of your future self. Destined for a glory beyond your comprehension yet in these days tending the sheep. You sit seemingly unnoticed in their fields of education, church pews, minimum wage jobs…you are young and at times disregarded. Before the day of your birth your eternal Father placed upon you divine intentions. Anointed for service in His kingdom. The jar of oil held overhead by the hands that hold the stars and the affirmation of heaven rolling down your body…saturating your soul. Oh but you are that David generation, in the pastures of youth, learning to love Jesus and sing his song in the secret…away from the watchful eyes of this world. You plunge into the deep. Drowning yourself in His Presence…You are becoming His and He is becoming yours. You will slay your giants…you will win your battles…you will wear your crown. But you were born to be the kid, alone in the field with a song and a savior." 

DANIEL

"You find yourself in a strange, foreign land. Born into a world you were not born for…Surrounded by the celebration of fleeting pursuits and wooing whispers of a clueless age, beckoning you to subdue the customs of your heavenly home. Here you reside within the confines of a culture in which you were never meant to fit…you sense that day in and day out. Bordered on all sides by the absurdity of what others call normal. Pressure to conform to preset expectations weighs heavily on your soul. Yet in the midst of this clamor and tension you are becoming a Daniel generation who refuse the delicacies of the king’s table, curbing your consumption, consecrating your heart, defying the norms of society, trusting that when this world roars against who you are, your God will shut the mouths of the lions…Here you live ever leaning into your one true Father…your one true home…this is not your home."

FINALE

"Here we stand, in this penultimate hour, having read the accounts of the saints of old. Through the distance of years and the literature of heaven we have become witnesses of the story of God unveiling in the earth.We have sung the songs…We have heard the sermons…We have read the stories…Of their acclaim. By faith these people overthrew kingdoms, and ruled with justice. They shut the mouths of lions, wrestled with heaven and slayed the giants. Their weakness turned to strength, they became strong in battle and put whole armies to flight. But others were tortured, refusing to turn from God in order to be set free. They placed their hope in a better life. Some were jeered at, and their backs were cut open with whips. Others were chained in prisons. Some died by stoning, some were sawed in half, and others were killed with the sword. Some went about destitute and oppressed and mistreated. They were too good for this world, wandering over deserts and mountains, hiding in caves and holes in the ground. All these people earned a good reputation because of their faith, yet none of them received all that God had promised. For God had something better in mind for us, so that all of those champions of the faith would not reach perfection without us! All of history has been ceaselessly in motion, making its way to this era…breathlessly waiting for this people…for you…Momentum building for this Movement…This is the moment…this is the kingdom…We Were Born For This"
