What Sherwood's Courageous is all about
Four men. One calling. To serve and protect.
As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, and their partners are confident and focused. They willingly stand up to the worst the world can offer. Yet at the end of the day, they face a challenge that none of them are truly prepared to tackle: fatherhood.
While they consistently give their best on the job, good enough seems to be all they can muster as dads. But they're quickly discovering that their standard is missing the mark.
They know that God desires to turn the hearts of fathers to their children, but their children are beginning to drift further and further away from them. Will they be able to find a way to serve and protect those that are most dear to them?
When tragedy hits home, these men are left wrestling with their hopes, their fears, their faith, and their fathering. Can a newfound urgency help these dads draw closer to God ... and to their children?
COURAGEOUS is the fourth release of Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Church in Albany, Georgia. Their first release since FIREPROOF, the No. 1 independent film of 2008, COURAGEOUS joins Facing the Giants and Flywheel in touching and impacting lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope.
LifeWay and Sherwood Pictures are partnering to produce a variety of products that will impact churches and their people following the release of the movie on Sept. 30.
Sherwood Baptist Church senior pastor Michael Catt said LifeWay’s time and energy in this project has been “an incredible blessing” not just because of the products that will be produced, but also the Kingdom impact that will be made and the many people that will be engaged in the message of godly fatherhood.
“We are asking God to start a men’s movement out of this movie,” Catt said. “Part of that prayer is what God will allow us to do together as Sherwood Baptist Church and LifeWay.”
Moviegoers will again find themselves crying, laughing, and cheering—sometimes simultaneously—as they are inspired by everyday heroes who long to be the kinds of dads that make a lifelong impact on their children.
Protecting the streets is second nature to these law enforcement officers. Raising their children? That will take courage.
COURAGEOUS ... honor begins at home.
