The coffeehouse was sweltering as film lighting, cameras, cast and crew filled the tight space. This location was the setting for the next 12 hours—from 6:30 p.m. to 6:30 a.m.—as the filming of “Coffee Shop” took place.
After several months of writing and planning, Doug’s team began filming in February the first of several evangelistic short films. Doug was the producer for “Coffee Shop”. Some of his responsibilities included setting up the location, arranging casting, finding the crew and making sure the film shoot ran smoothly.
“Coffee Shop” is intended to give the viewer a clear understanding of how to become a Christian. It will be part of an epilogue—one film immediately following another—which will lead to a spiritual conversation.
The film’s story involves a causal conversation between two friends—Becky and her nonbeliever friend, Anna who meet for coffee. Becky shares the importance of Christ in her life and urges her friend to accept His unconditional love too.
“Coffee Shop” is now in the testing phase. Doug and other Campus Crusade for Christ staff will be showing it and gathering responses to measure the effectiveness of the film in presenting the gospel in a conversational story form. Click here to watch “Coffee Shop”.
Please pray for the testing of this film, that Campus Crusade staff will receive honest feedback on the effectiveness of it. Pray also for wisdom as Doug’s team writes and plans for the next evangelistic short film in the series.
Next month, Doug will be a part of the audio/visual team at an upcoming JESUS Film Briefing taking place April 11-14. The event will include Campus Crusade staff members from around the world sharing reports of what God is doing in their countries through The JESUS Film Project. Please pray for those who attend the event to be ministered to spiritually.
Thank you for your prayers and partnership. It is a joy to serve Him in this ministry with you.
