About Church People

Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame-based than Gospel-driven.
But when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves.

Thoughts

“WWJD”…what about “What Has Jesus Already Done.”  Powerful statement.  “God loves the mess we are right now.”  “God’s love is bigger than our mess.”  Stephen Baldwin’s character, Chad, wow.  Thought-provoking.  Joey Fatone is hysterical.  You can definitely tell which are trained and which are not.  Reminds me of Faith Like Potatoes and Fly Wheel.  Great movies if you can get past some of the actors.  Excellent message.  Music is great.  The scenery is great.

Is it sad that I, personally know, 2 pastors that are just like the megachurch pastor in this movie?  So into the next big thing.  Lying to kids, parents, and whoever watches them online.  Congregations buying them vehicles that cost more than my first house.  Once I saw the person behind the pulpit, I knew that they were not all they claimed to be.  So many people being misled.
Slightly idealistic about adoption and finding that long-lost father.  Once found, it all seems perfect.  That can be very triggering to children who come from hard places.  This is what they dream of and this movie fits the bill.  I know that it is probably mute and most people do not understand.  As an adoptive mom, I get it.  As good as this movie is, I will probably not let my younger adopted kids watch this.  It could be very triggering for them.  That makes me sad, though I do see the point.

Rediscovering Your Passion

This is a Christian comedy about the megachurch mega-production subculture and getting back to the simplicity of the Gospel.  It stars Christian comedian Thor Ramsey, Hallmark Channel’s Erin Cahill, Stephen Baldwin, Donald Faison, and NSYNC’s Joey Fatone.
This movie is a powerful message about rediscovering your passion for Christ and learning to surrender what you hold dearest, all told in a redemptively humorous way.  We could all use a good laugh right now, and Church People is a movie your whole family can LOL to!

“CHURCH PEOPLE was a complete surprise for me. I had no expectations whatsoever, and I was totally
shocked when I absolutely loved the movie. I was inspired. I laughed, and then I laughed some more.
Thor Ramsey was phenomenal and his performance brought light to the dark times many of us have
been going through. I can’t recommend this movie more. As a matter of fact, if you’re going, buy me a
ticket and I’ll go see it again with you.

Chuck and I have always believed that Christian film needs to elevate it’s game. That it needs to be
great. It needs to be fruit that if you lay it at the altar, God would be pleased. I believe that CHURCH
PEOPLE has accomplished this. No higher compliment could I give this movie than to say for 90 minutes
I was able to get away from the world, and was the better for it. Christopher Shaw’s directing work in
CHURCH PEOPLE showed passion and love not only for the material but for the cause of Christ. As
filmmakers, Chuck and I we’re inspired by it.”

– Cary Solomon & Chuck Konzelman (Writers & Directors of God’s Not Dead and Unplanned)
“I loved CHURCH PEOPLE! It made me laugh out loud but more importantly, it has a message that
leaves a true impact in your soul.. a perfect watch for this Easter season. If you are seeking something
fun to do with the whole family, make plans to see this movie!”

– Jenn Gotzon (Actress & Producer of “The Farmer and the Belle: Saving Santaland”)
