Update on the Ministry

  • Jul 21, 2012 · 7:00 PM

Greetings,

I pray that this finds everyone well!

I wanted to provide everyone with an update as to our launch night and current action taking place.

I have updated the date of the first Meetup to July 21st... 

The reason for this is primarily three-fold;  I am quite busy with other "life" events.  I am going to be taking a week long motorcycle journey out to the east coast to visit my first Grandson (do I ever have a strong testimony about little Noah, and what an awesome God we have). and Finally, there is a lot of work (or so I feel) to do prior to launching.

My vision of this ministry is that we can reach-out to both Christian and others.

I would like to tailor the movies to specific audiences and therefore, would like to develop a "program" of scheduled movies. 

Initially, I think it will be a reach out to all audiences, but I am prayerful that others may want to get involved, and help develop more targeted movies to select groups (for example, men, women, teens, married couples, non-believers, etc.).  There are tremendous movies which reach strongly to these groups.  I would love it if movies were being shown 5 nights a week, and perhaps a couple of times on Saturdays!

As I indicated with the last update, the challenge of site licenses was being researched.  ALL movies will require a fee to be paid for a site license for showing.  As a result of this, it is taking time.  Prior to paying a fee, I would like to have a general selction / theme of movies selected.  This takes time watching and reviewing.

I recently purchased a "blanket" license for a number of movies.  However, the challenge is that I do not know what movies it covers.  The license covers certain producers and distributors, which I have a list of.  As such, a lengthy process will be undertaken to develop a move listing for these producers and distributors. 

Some of the more recent and popular movies have individual licenses' which are more expensive.  As a general rule, the site license allows for the showing of the movie, with certain restrictions for one year.  For example the movie Courageous license is $200.  As a result of the price, a bit more time is needed to review, select and pay for an initial set of movies.

By all means, I would certainly welcome any and all who would want to get involved with this review / start-up phase.

I will return from my trip around the 11th of July.  I will provide the next update at such time.  We will launch soon.  It may not be the 21st, but I am praying so.

Please come and get involved!

May God Bless and Be With you, David

    Gigi,

    Since the ministry is just in the beginning phase, I am not exactly certain when ovies will be shown. I truly believe with the help and support of others, and if it is His will, movies will be shown multiple times during the week. As such, I am prayerful that there will be a time which will work for you! God Bless, david
