NBA Star Stephen Curry Produces Faith-Based Movie

NBA superstar Stephen Curry has made a name for himself draining 3-point shots for the champion Golden State Warriors. He set a record in the NBA Finals by making nine 3-point shots to gain a 2-0 edge over the Lebron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers. When asked how he could accomplish such seemingly herculean athletic tasks, Curry gave praise to God.

“I love that basketball gives me the opportunities to do good things for people and to point them towards the Man who died for our sins on the cross,” Curry wrote in a Fellowship for Christian Athletes article. “I know I have a place in heaven waiting for me because of Him, and that’s something no earthly prize or trophy could ever top.”

His trademark shoe also has the scripture written on it that states, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

These days, Curry is putting his fame and wealth to further the Lord’s work by signing on to a faith-based film called “Breakthrough.” The feature film is based on the Joyce Smith book called “The Impossible.” The work tells the inspirational story about Smith’s son, who drowned after falling through the ice. An hour after being declared legally dead, he was revived through prayer.

Curry reportedly signed on as executive producer because the project was faith and family oriented.

“John’s story is nothing short of incredible,” Curry reportedly said. “It’s a story about the power of prayer and perseverance and one I immediately connected to. After reading the script, I knew I wanted to be a part of bringing it to life onscreen.”

The basketball star reportedly jumped at the opportunity to work on the Christian book-to-film project within 24 hours of reading the script. This will mark Curry’s first project since starting Unanimous Media, a film and television wing associated with Sony Pictures.

Tim Tebow’s “Run the Race” to Open in February

Heisman Trophy winner, NFL quarterback, and Major League Baseball player Tim Tebow is also immersed in producing faith-based movies.

Tebow has been working diligently to produce a feature film that merges sports and Christian faith called “Run the Race.” The story is about two brothers that embark on a family and faith life journey. They bond together to overcome adversity and use sports as a vehicle for pulling them up.

“There are a lot of similarities in my life between two brothers supporting one another, having each other’s back, believing in one another,” Tebow reportedly said. “My family and my brother have always given me so much support. That’s made such a big impact on me being able to go after my dreams.”

Like Curry, Tebow was driven to use his fame as a platform to inspire others about Christ.

“I wanted to be part of something that’s encouraging and inspirational to the viewer. I believe ‘Run the Race’ accomplishes this by showing two brothers struggling with real life, but them getting through it by supporting each other and their faith,” Tebow reportedly said. “I hope those who see it can walk away with more faith, hope, and love.”

“Run the Race” is expected out in theatres on February 22.

Christian Pastor Returns Home from Turkish Prison

Politics is seldom heart-warming, but the efforts of the Trump Administration to gain the freedom of North Carolina Pastor Andrew Brunson have yielded a positive result.

After being held as a prisoner for preaching the Gospel in Turkey, Brunson was swept up in a political crackdown in October of 2016. Throughout his ordeal, he held fast to his faith.

“Let it be clear, I am in prison not for anything I have done wrong, but because of who I am—a Christian pastor,” he wrote. “I desperately miss my wife and children. Yet I believe this to be true: It is an honor to suffer for Jesus Christ, as many have before me. My deepest thanks for all those around the world who are standing with and praying for me.”

The Turkish government reportedly attempted to bargain with Pres. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to exchange a religious refugee taking asylum in the U.S. for pastor Brunson. But the Christian Trump Administration refused and ratcheted up pressure through sanctions until the American pastor was released.

These days, Pastor Andrew Brunson is safely back on U.S. soil and reunited with his wife, family, and fellow American Christians.
