Provident Films and Sherwood Pictures


The quality of Christian films (faith-based if you want to be politically correct) is beginning to gain momentum and production companies are producing movies worth paying box office prices for.

Courageous the next film from the producers of Fireproof and facing the Giants
Sherwood Pictures

Provident Films is a production company whose mission is to provide films for the family that are inspiring, impacting and entertaining. This Nashville-based partner to Provident Music Group is committed to making high quality films and music for your family to enjoy together.

Partnering with Sherwood Pictures has brought audiences what The Christian Film Examiner calls ‘theater worthy films’. Fireproof and Facing the Giants received rave reviews and became for the box office hits. If you have not seen these films yet, you are missing out on something special.

Sherwood Pictures, a ministry of Sherwood Church in Albany Georgia, knows how to bring stories that deal with life issues and struggles we all encounter in one way or another to film. They beautifully portray people who trust the Lord, who make it through the toughest of situations with integrity and faith, without the religiosity the world portrays believers. It’s about time for Christians who walk the walk to be seen in real life on the big screen, warts and all and saved by Grace.

The latest project for Sherwood and Provident:

Courageous is a story of four men, who face danger everyday as law enforcement officers but find their biggest challenge after tragedy strikes leaving them struggling with hope, fear and their faith. Albany Georgia will once again be the setting with promises of action, drama and the humor we have come to depend on from Alex & Stephen Kendrick who are finishing the screenplay and production is schedule for spring of 2010.

Sign up for updates on the production of Courageous the Movie, and in the meantime, check out these three direct-to-DVD films by Provident-Integrity Distribution for your family to enjoy together, you will laugh, cry and cheer for the characters and decisions they make in each of these heartwarming stories.

Come What May

This film asks the question: When does life really begin? If college student Caleb Hogan argues what he truly believes, he stands to lose the most important competition of his life—and the support of his mother. If he softens his stance, he might win the coveted title ... but lose the heart of his teammate Rachel in the process.

Produced with local cast and crew members, as well as approximately 40 homeschooled students from across the country, “Come What May” is the maiden project of Advent Film Group (AFG), a faith-based film production and distribution corporation founded by filmmaker George Escobar.

Set Apart

This coming of age drama combines the action and excitement of a Western with the laughter of a comedy as fit follows four inner-city kids, each at a crossroad in their young lives; their decisions and actions could set them down life's slippery slope. They head west thinking the city is their friend. On the ranch, they discover what true friendship is all about.

The Lost and Found Family

Hardship and change can affect anyone—from children in a foster-care environment to well-to-do socialites. The Lost and Found Family is a touching story of hardship, change, and the faith that no matter how difficult the situation appears in our eyes, there is still hope.
