How God Uses Church Movie Events To Unite Communities

I Can Only Imagine Movie Event License

Have you heard the powerful stories that have been shared as a result of the movie, I Can Only Imagine?

Stories of forgiveness, healing, and redemption have poured in since the Erwin Brothers film made its theater debut on March 16, 2018. Reaching thousands and selling out theaters, I Can Only Imagine tells a story that captivates audiences and profoundly shares the message of the gospel.

Yet the impact of this film is far from over.

Marked by a volatile relationship with his father and estranged from his mother, I Can Only Imagine follows Bart Millard’s painful journey to become the lead singer for the popular Christian band, MercyMe.

Through his struggle, Bart learned about the hope and forgiveness found in God’s redeeming love, and ultimately became inspired to write MercyMe’s hit song, I Can Only Imagine.

A Unique Opportunity For Your Church To Share The Gospel

While God calls some to full-time ministry, all of us are called to share the life-bearing message of the gospel. We find examples of this calling throughout scripture.

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says that we should actively encourage one another and build each other up.
  • 1 Peter 3:15 instructs us to be able to show people the reason for our hope.
  • 1st and 2nd Corinthians advises the local church to share the powerful message of the Gospel with others.

Still, it’s clear, especially for church leaders, that God has not asked us to wait for people to come to us. The Great Commission beckons us to an active, rather than passive, life as Christians.

This is one of the reasons why a church movie event is such a fruitful opportunity for people to experience and share messages of hope and redemption found in the Gospel.

Based on the countless testimonies being shared, we’re confident the life-giving messages in I Can Only Imagine will resonate deeply with everyone in your community.

Provide Hope And Encouragement For Broken Families

Bart’s powerful story highlights the brokenness many families face within our communities.

The reality is many people experience painful circumstances as a result of their past. Because of their struggle, they may believe it’s too late or that nobody can relate.

They may even believe that they’ll never get through this season of struggle.

Just as Bart found hope and wholeness in God’s love, so can the people in your community.

Bart’s story offers encouragement to those facing impossible circumstances. It also offers hope and reassurance that God hasn’t forgotten them. Sometimes, it helps to hear from others who have been down a similar road.

I Can Only Imagine is a compelling way to show your community that it’s never too late for God to step into their circumstances. Perhaps they may even discover God’s purpose for their struggle.
