Christian Movie Connect Episode 49 - Alex Kendrick
Georgia native, Alex Kendrick, has become the “face” for the faith-based film industry. Along with his brother Stephen, Alex founded Sherwood Pictures, a production company specializing in storytelling from a Christian perspective. Sherwood Pictures has produced the successful films, “Courageous,” “Fireproof,” and “Facing the Giants” as well as their debut film, “Flywheel.” Alex has co-written 3 novels and the Love Dare, a non-fiction marriage-related book, which made it to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list.
Alex is the Associate Pastor of Media at Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, GA. It’s here where Sherwood Pictures began with the support of Sherwood’s Senior Pastor, Michael Catt. The goal of Sherwood Pictures from day one has been to make family-friendly movies that build on the Judeo Christian ethic and communicate the gospel without compromise.
