5. It’s Accompanied by a Movie-Themed Study Guide
The Christian publisher LifeWay is releasing multiple Overcomer resources for churches and small groups, including an Overcomer Bible study kit and workbook, along with books for adults (Defined), teen girls and young women (Radiant), teen boys and young men (Revealed), middle schoolers (Wonderful) and young children (What’s So Wonderful about Webster?)
The film, producer Stephen Kendrick said, was made as an evangelistic tool and as a way to introduce Christians to the subject of identity in Christ.
“Our heart’s desire is that lives will be changed,” he said.
A successful opening weekend, Stephen Kendrick added, is essential. Some churches are buying out entire theaters.
“If people support it opening weekend, they expand it – more cities, more theaters,” he said. … “If people don’t go see it opening weekend, they’ll take it out of theaters. It’s a big deal what happens opening weekend.”
