Christian Movie Connect Episode 73 – Gary Zelasko
Gary Zelasko is the Director of Marketing for Harvest Ministries, one of the largest and most influential outreach ministries in the U.S. With nearly 30 years of media experience, Gary has served in a variety of capacities including CEO of Luminescence Catalog, a skin care catalog company that he built to become a multimillion dollar entity. He has also held numerous executive positions with major networks and media organizations such as CBS, Cox and Hearst Broadcasting. In 2010, Gary managed the distribution of the Greg Laurie documentary, “Lost Boy: The Next Chapter”. His latest project with Harvest Ministries and Lifeway Films, “Hope for Hurting Hearts”, is due for national release through church organizations in the summer of 2013.
In this interview, Zelasko talks with CMC host, Cheryl Ariaz Wicker, about how documentary film is used to bring hope and faith in Christ.
“Hope for Hurting Hearts” tells the stories of how Greg Laurie, Jeremy Camp, Nick Vujicic and their families dealt with times of extreme suffering. Through this life-changing documentary, these stories are shared to draw others to the truth of comfort, hope and trust in Christ.
