NRB Convention is always a hub of interviews. In the case of Lucas Miles, he was alternating between conducting interviews for The Lucas Miles Show and being interviewed by other media like Faith Flix. His podcast features top influencers in faith and entertainment like Kevin Downes, Kathie Lee Gifford, Atticus Shaffer, and Kristy Swanson.
I love the National Religious Broadcasters Convention! There is nothing quite like the energy that comes when thousands of Christians from around the world converge on a beautiful venue and talk about how to spread the gospel in new and exciting ways.
This year had just an incredible lineup of speakers kicking off with Vice President Mike Pence, Benham brothers, Dennis Quaid, Alex Kendrick, and Luis Palau, then continuing with Dr. Jerry Johnson, Rick Warren, Phil Cooke, Jon Erwin, Todd Starnes, Larry Elder, Kay Arthur, Megan Alexander, Kelly Wright, Billy Hallowell, just to name a few.
This month marks an important milestone for Faith Flix. It was in February 2013 that I attended the National Religious Broadcasters Convention for the first time. Fred and I were hired by a Christian magazine to shoot video and still photography. I fell in love with the atmosphere, watching all the interviews, meeting all the exciting people, observing all the connections being made. I vowed that the next year we would return as our own press outlet.
I’m excited to introduce today’s Faith Flix guest, my son-in-law, Clay Herd. You’ve probably noticed his name before as he’s done guest reviews for me in the past. Next week he and Brittany will be doing Faith Flix Facebook Live interviews at NRB Convention so you’ll get to see him in action. Clay is a powerful preacher with a unique ministry to gamers via Twitch, an online platform similar to Youtube, but geared for video gamers.
Well, I really messed up! I was so impressed with Champion and the fact that this was a first film for so many involved. I just assumed that director Judd Brannon was an old pro, and so I didn’t mention him in my review. Well, I was wrong. This is his first time directing. Wow! If you get a chance, you’ve got to check out this movie. Good job everyone!
This past weekend we had the opportunity to watch Championat the Christian Worldview Film Festival. I knew from the trailer that the movie would be good, but it was even better than I expected.
Champion is a story of forgiveness set in the world of dirt track racing. A moment of personal rivalry leads to tragedy with one man fighting for his family and another fighting to forgive.
From the beginning, Champion draws you in. It just feels big. It’s also full of twists and turns to keep you waiting to see what happens next. It’s hard to believe this is a first movie for writers Missy Reedy and Sarah Inabnit and producer Steve Hyland. It’s obvious, though, that they did their homework, studied hard, and surrounded themselves with experienced folks. If this is what they do first time around, I can’t wait to see what their future projects…

Today was a more relaxed day at NRB. We started off with interviews with musical artist Jean Watson and authors Suzanne Niles and Wendy Little. Next, we headed over to the church media summit to learn about social media. It was, obviously, geared for churches, but we found it helpful to learn how they were using social media to connect with congregations and open up communication in today’s techy society.
NRB Convention kicked off on Monday with the Digital Media Summit but today was our first day to attend. We spent most of the day either in the media room or the lobby outside doing interviews with a long list of filmmakers, actors, authors, musical artists, and more. I’ll be sharing video interviews and highlights later, but here’s a quick pictorial tour of our day.
As we prepare for the Valentine’s weekend theatrical release of Providence, we’ve tried to determine what distinguishes it from the other releases that weekend. Besides the obvious, that it’s a silent cinema movie, the biggest different is the worldview. While other movies are promoting a lifestyle of singleness and promiscuity, ours embraces the old fashioned virtues of true love and marriage. So with that in mind, we launched a campaign to share love stories of couples around the world in order to show that true love is indeed possible.
