Alex and Stephen Kendrick

Alex:Stephen-Kendrick-SmallIn July of 2014 I got a call to visit the set of the movie being filmed in Charlotte by Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the brothers who made such films as FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, and COURAGEOUS. With the blessing of their church, Sherwood Baptist, they have now launched out on their own in making a movie called THE WAR ROOM.  Well, I’ve waited a year to bring these interviews to FIRST PERSON, but as THE WAR ROOM is about to launch in late August, 2015, I thought listeners would enjoy hearing what we talked about on set that summer day in 2014.

In the first half of this week’s show, you’ll hear my conversation with Director Alex Kendrick. Then, in the second half of FIRST PERSON, you’ll hear from Priscilla Shirer (daughter of Tony and Lois Evans) who plays the lead role. You’ll also hear from Beth Moore who was on set that day, plus the other half of the Kendrick brothers, Stephen, who wrote and produced the movie. More of Stephen’s interview can be heard on our Facebook page,, along with an interview with “Miss Clara” played by Karen Abercrombie.
