This past Tuesday and Wednesday we shared some great fellowship with Stephen and Alex Kendrick (the Producer & Director of Fireproof and Courageous) down in Albany, Georgia.
Stephen and his wife Jill welcomed us into their home; in addition to sharing their film-making experience, they poured love and grace into us personally, encouraging us in our marriages and our walk with the Lord.
The meeting revolved around the script, which we spent most of our time reading and brainstorming. Stephen and Alex love the Lord, love to have fun, and love to work hard. At one point, Alex jumped up and said, “Ok, here’s how I’d direct this scene…” and then proceeded to lay on the floor, illustrating how the hero would wake up after being knocked out in a bomb-blast.
We were encouraged and humbled that the Kendricks would take so much time and energy to help us as we enter the last stages of writing Beyond the Mask. As we complete this round of final polishes on the script, please pray that the message of finding hope and identity in Christ will shine through loud and clear.
