When a group of Christians from Pennsylvania take a trip to a Halloween festival in Salem, Massachusetts, cultures collide…but not in the way you might expect.
Witch City is my first film in conjunction with Global Awakening and Global on Demand. I'm very excited about this film and hope you are too. I believe this film can be a tool that helps propel the church into a new season of creativity as we learn to better love those around us.
What’s unique about Witch City is that we got to capture so much right as it was happening. It’s not after the fact testimonies, everything that is talked about is happening right in front of you on the screen. And then as you watch these things happen you also get to hear interview responses about what was happening internally. You get to see how words of knowledge, prophecy, and healing is given and then you get to hear tips from those who did it. I think this film is not only entertaining and inspiring but from a practical stand point it could help a lot of people step out and take risks for God. Sometimes just having a practical example to watch is all you need to gain confidence to go do it yourself.
This film also puts a face to many of those the church consistently condemns. I think sometimes it is easy for the church to judge certain people such as witches, psychics or those in the LGBTQ community because they don’t personally know anybody participating in those things. Once you realize that these people are just like you and me, they have dreams, they have families, they have doubts and fears. Once you realize that and get to know them it is easier to move towards them with love instead of pushing them away in fear. That instead of having an agenda and building relationship for the sake of converting or changing we can build relationship for the sake of relationship and let the love of God just flow through who we are as we release hope, peace, and joy. Hopefully this film helps people to do that.
