A Special Cinema Event
By Experience and Women of Faith are partnering together to bring to audiences an international cinematic event that presents the 20 year story of Women of Faith. Beginning in California in 1996 with four speakers committed to authenticity, Women of Faith grew to become the largest Christian Women’s Movement in history, touching over five million lives with personal stories full of laughter and tears.
Witness the journey of Women of Faith through the years, on stage and off, their travels with World Vision, their impact on their audience, in short the way they’ve changed the world. Partly historical, and frequently hysterical, this unique cinematic experience will be packed with some of the most popular pieces from the beloved speaking team as well as music and performances from the CCM artists that appeared on the tour. Featuring never before seen interviews, outtakes, and behind the scenes footage, this “movie” will bring back memories for all those who have attended a Women of Faith weekend as well as create new memories for those experiencing it for the first time.
This special cinematic event will be broadcast live to local movie theaters across the United States and Canada.
An Amazing Joyful Journey will be in over 1000+ theatres all over the world. If you’re not in the Dallas area, visit http://www.wofincinemas.com/ to find a theatre near you.
I wasn’t sure what the Women of Faith movie would be like. I’ve been to an event before, so I thought perhaps they would show footage and have a “best of” collection.
Women of Faith: An Amazing Joyful Journey is so much more than that. It’s a celebration, a look back, a tribute, and a hand clap to God with what He did with a small group of women, a dedicated crew, a visionary, an anointed leader, and over 5,000,000 audience members in 20 years.
Stephen Arterburn saw the need and started Women of Faith. What began as a weekend event transformed into a movement. I can attest to the lives changed through laughter, tears, and inspiring messages and music.
Each speaker is profiled and I loved hearing their story, how they came aboard, what message they brought to the platform, and their plans for the future. Marilyn Meberg, Luci Swindoll, Patsy Clairmont, Beverly Johnson, Sheila Walsh and Nicole Johnson have in depth stories where the audience I was with laughed out loud. It was fun re visiting those speakers and their best moments.
They also looked at guest speakers/artists, everyone from Amy Grant to Max Lucado. I think the story that moved me the most was Sandi Patty. It was obvious her participation with Women of Faith was a game changer for the team, her, and her family. If you aren’t aware of her testimony, it’s an amazing redemption story. I highly recommend her book, BROKEN IN THE BACK ROW.
Mary Graham, former President of Women of Faith, is easily credited for making the movement the success it was. She shared so much behind the scenes, including her crush on another guest, actor Jim Caviezel, and her family history that prompted her to retire. That was emotional, so much so that one of the team members they interviewed was a wet mess from sobbing. Why they didn’t allow that poor woman to have a tissue, that was kind of distracting. She was soaked, but it proved what a force Mary was to everyone involved in the ministry.
There is so much more to say but I know the movie is playing again and I’d love for you to see it yourself. I believe you will be as inspired and encouraged as I was.
I received tickets for this movie and am writing an honest review based on my experience.
