He starred in the highest-grossing indie film of all time-- "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". Now John Corbett is starring in a new independant film, "All Saints", based on a true story. He joined us to share why he found this film so insprining.
John plays salesman Michael Spurlock, who traded in his corporate sales career to become a pastor of All Saints, the tiny church he was ordered to shut down. While developers eagerly eye the property and the congregation mourns the inevitable, Michael and his family look forward to moving on to an established church where they can put down roots. But when the church hesitantly begins welcoming Karen refugees from Burma—former farmers striving for a fresh start in America—Michael feels called to an improbable new mission.
Toiling alongside the Karen people, the congregation attempts to turn their fertile land into a working farm to pay the church’s bills and feed its newest people. Jeopardizing his family’s future by ignoring his superiors, Michael must choose between completing what he was assigned to do—close the church and sell the property—or listening to a still, small voice challenging the people of All Saints to risk it all and provide much-needed hope to their new community. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
"All Saints" is rated PG and opens in theaters on Friday, August 25th. For more information or to location a theater showing the movie, visit this website.
