With comments ranging from “your own view of the world may be changed,” “you can’t help but be awakened as well,” and “nothing short of courageous” for the first documentary, the anticipation for this next project is great.
“We were pleasantly surprised with the great reception and reviews of our first film,” recalls Backroad Entertainment’s Troy Groves. ”That confirmed that these unsanitized stories of faith are needed.”
The difference with this reality series and much of what is on reality television is that there is no set up, no auditions, no game show element. It's a pure inside look at the lives of every day believers and reveals what happens when people put themselves in a position to depend on God.
