BECOMING BETTER FATHERS IS A MATTER FOR EVERY COMMUNITY

WILL YOU BE THE ONE TO HELP YOUR CHURCH UNDERSTAND WHAT FATHERHOOD SHOULD BE? STAND UP AND SAY: "I WILL!"

children from fatherless homes are more likely to abuse drugs, to live in poverty and to engage in criminal activity. Even in homes where the father is present, he may be struggling with career, life's purpose or marital issues. Dads are often busy and disconnected. Your community isn't immune to these realities. COURAGEOUS is your opportunity to take a stand and to make a change for the sake of your family, your church, your community and our nation.

COURAGEOUS

ABOUT THE MOVIE

Adam Mitchell is a husband, father and seasoned law enforcement officer. On the job he's confident and courageous. At home he gives less than his best. But it's still good enough, right? When tragedy strikes close to home, Adam is left wondering if he has what it takes to deal with life's toughest challenge... fatherhood. He and four friends unite to be as courageous in their homes as they are on the streets. Men like Adam will be challenged to turn their hearts toward God and to steer their families to a renewed commitment to Christ in the home. When men step up, your church and its families will never be the same.

Fatherless children are at a dramatically greater risk of drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness, suicide, poor educational performance, teen pregnancy, and criminality.

PLAN

Courageous Living Bible Study and Leader's Kit

by Michael Catt Parents will move toward living more courageously in four key areas: responsibility, priorities, legacy and faith.

COURAGEOUS is coming soon, so it's important to figure out what resources you'll need and how many tickets to purchase. You'll want to make an event around the theatre experience and to organize so that your congregation can watch the movie together.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if the movie isn't playing in my city?

Special theatre showings in other Canadian communities can be arranged when 500 total tickets are required. Joint church and business partnerships are encouraged to "buy a theatre" to make sure COURAGEOUS comes to their community.

PURCHASE

Is the movie suitable for children?

Take advantage of our ticket packages and Church Resource Kits (check out our pricing grid on the next page). You'll save money and be fully prepared to follow up with those most interested once you've had a chance to see the movie.

While there is no foul language, alcohol or sex in the movie, we do caution parents that there are scenes of intense action. There is one scene that references drug use. We recommend that parents be selective and accompany children to the movie.
