It is always the greatest opportunity to share updates from VERITAS MISSION FILM ASSOCIATION when it comes to new projects. Many of you for a long time have been praying about our team, the people God has been bringing around us and there is one individual who has really been interceding on behalf of a large project, Jim Gromer.
JIM GROMER - FILMMAKER & CO-LABORER
I have shared about Jim in the past, but I want to bring his name up before you all again because of his vast insights and talents. Jim began with the Stars Network and worked with ABC producing and creating many programs, spots, commercials and film production projects. He has always had a 'calling' on his life to do something very special.
What is amazing about his story is our connection. From 2000 to 2006 I had the honor to be CEO of a company started by the Green family from Hobby Lobby. While there and producing films Jim attempted to reach out to me about a screenplay idea he had birthed. This screenplay concept began as an animation project with his in laws and he truly felt this was special, to tell the story of Jesus Christ.
TELLING THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD
Jim was unable to reach me until after LAST OUNCE OF COURAGE. In the meantime, he felt called to attend seminary and focus on Biblical accuracy. This was perhaps a challenging time for the patriot who served in Desert Storm and now was focusing on the Bible. Our ministry of the V300 began praying about this amazing man and his wife Rachel for their talents to be used by the Lord.
We met last year to begin thinking about a way to bring the story to life. At the end of 2017 we gave the entire project to the Lord and said, "Not my will, but thy will be done". Through a series of intercessory prayer times, building a wonderful project relationship with the ministry of SECRET KNOTS he and I began seeing how the Lord could use new doors and re-open a project both held closely in our hearts.
JESUS THE LAST SUPPER
JESUS THE LAST SUPPER is now on the drawing board again and is a major focus in the narrative feature film side of what we are doing. The exciting film begins in a storm and transitions to the last meal Jesus had with his disciples and the unique relationships Jesus had with each one. Movies are all about relationships and this film promises to be Biblically accurate, but one of the most heartfelt stories where you hear the words of Jesus spoken, a lot!
Jim is working with me on several projects, SECRET KNOTS, THE HARVESTER CHRONICLES and now a film we believe will be very exciting for the future.
We need your prayers.
For anyone to put together a film about the story of Jesus, we were looking for what made this story the most unique and different. Through years of hard working by Jim and prayerful consideration by his wife Rachel and at the very sacrifice of their children, he is entrusting our team, our prayer warriors and our calling to the highest levels. Please pray for Jim and I as we work together, serving Christ in all we do.
I am forever thankful for each one of you who have been praying for us. Please consider renewing your hearts toward prayer as we move forward in following His will for our lives. Jim lives in Denver, Colorado and is a brother in this journey of cinema with VMFA. I am asking you pray for the financial provision to make a film one of the most BIblically accurate, creative and awesome stories ever told to life.
