'USA Today' Notes Church Movie Trend

Story focuses on Sherwood Baptist ('Fireproof') and other congregations making films

There's no breaking news in this recent story from USA Today, but it's good to see the popular newspaper covering this trend.

Best quote in the story comes from Michael Catt, senior pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., which made the films Facing the Giants and Fireproof, and is now in post-production on their next film, Courageous, coming to theaters sometime in 2011.

"Remember, John Wayne only died in two movies," Catt told USA Today. "Movies are an escape. They offer hope. And Sherwood is stepping up to claim that the only hope that matters is Christian."

Stay tuned for more CT coverage of Courageous and Sherwood's moviemaking in the months ahead.
