We are in challenging times. The number of movies available to families and young adults is astounding. Event more astounding is the number of movie/film products that do not reflect moral values.
This Ministry was designed as a resource for families, parents, and grandparents, who as author Jim Burn's book, "Raising G-Rated Kids in a X-Rated World" described the challenge.
Listed here are just a few movie resources that one could use to seek-out and get educated on the number of high-quality productions available to families. This list includes rating organizations, film companies, and rental companies that specialize in Christian films.
The Dove Foundation is one of the best family-christian movie review sites.
The Christian Film Database is a great resource. CFDb is a "Non-denominational" online Christian Film Resource Hub. We are located in the U.S., but list "Christian Films" and other resources, from all over the world. We list all films with a "Christian Message", no matter who makes it.

Films of the Month - "All Saints"
Dove "Family-Approved" For Ages 12 and Over
“All Saints” is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
Is God the God of all people? The name of the church in this film fits the theme—All Saints—that all people, including the refugees from Southeast Asia, are God’s people. Do people need a faith that can demand a bit of fight and spunk? Just ask Pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett). The answer is a resounding yes! Faced with the closing of his first church, in Smyrna, Tennessee, Pastor Mike believes he hears from God, and he hears to keep the church doors open. This is despite what his church leadership plans. They want to close the doors and find Michael another church.
Following God’s plan is not always easy, as Pastor Michael learns. He and the Korean refugees from Burma work together to farm the land on church property. The idea is for the refugees to make a living, and for the extra money to go toward keeping the church doors open. Then they are hit with a drought. Next, just when they find a way—through a bit of a miracle—to water the land, a tremendous rain comes and damages much of the crops. What will they wind up doing?
John Corbett is terrific in the movie as Pastor Michael as is Barry Corbin who plays a gruff but kind farmer that helps out just when it’s needed the most. This movie will keep you thinking; could it be that God’s plan differs a bit from our own, but still works out? We are more than happy to award the film our Faith-Friendly Seal for all ages. “All Saints” is a movie for, well…all!
