Playmakers in the Faith

Mission

The mission of Playmakers In The Faith is the same mission Jesus gave His followers: Go therefore and make disciples of ALL nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to obey ALL of the commands He gave His Apostles. The vision of Playmakers In The Faith is to use mobile devices and television to help spread the Gospel worldwide and help connect them to a place of fellowship. We desire to see people of all races repent and come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Imagine a TV Series that glorifies Jesus, with sports, and has intense combat action between the angels and demons. We will show the spiritual warfare through sports. For example, scoring a touchdown in the faith is leading someone to repentance and faith in Jesus. Our time spent studying the Word of God, prayer, fasting, worship, and serving in ministry affects the Spiritual Realm. Our faith and works help us to make Plays InThe Faith. Especially, during this time in the world, we as Christians need to step up in our prayer, Word study, and ministry and be a Playmaker In The Faith! This television series is different from other sports shows because the sports are played in the spiritual realm. In this realm, players can receive help from angels or demons. Team Light represents the Kingdom of Heaven, or the Christians, and Team Dark represents the Kingdom of Darkness.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Playmakers In The Faith is necessary because in this generation, many young kids and young adults are being discipled by their phones. This is the age of screen disciples and the “typical” 15- to 23-year-old spends about 2,767 hours per year on their phones. The cell phone is more influential than a pastor, coach, teacher, or parent. A great way to reach this generation is through their phones. There is also a huge gap in Christian Television where there are plenty of shows for children and adults but almost no Christian shows for teens and young adults. Our show is for ages 14 and up to help bridge the gap. When I go into the public schools trying to encourage teens to join the Fellowship of Christian Athletes huddles, many of them are glued to their phones either playing video games or watching anime cartoons. Many go unreached because they have no interest. We just have to change the bait up and can now hopefully offer them a TV show that will present the gospel to them.

As of right now we have a free mobile app that is available to download that has some trailers we produced to give people a visual. We are raising funds to produce a higher quality trailer (cost $250,000) and use it to raise funds for the first episode. We desire to get Playstation 5 quality in the 3D-CGI animation. A massive idea like this from the Lord needs to have the best quality. Most Christian shows or films are rejected because of poor quality. We want to serve God in excellence to help lead billions worldwide to Jesus.

We plan to have an 8-episode season and each episode we estimate will cost around $2.5 million. After the 3rd to 4th episode, we will plan to start developing a video game. In this video game a player will need their Bible in order to be successful in it.

Anyone can donate to the television series through the app or send a check.
