COURAGEOUS recently spent four weeks on the big screen in the USA, and remained in the box office top 10. The film’s sales topped $34 million. The impact is mammoth and COURAGEOUS viewers continue to send personal testimonies to the film’s Facebook page (dads, moms and kids) of how the movie has changed individual lives, entire families, even churches and communities!
What is it about this movie that baffles Hollywood critics? What topics does it tackle that are so important? COURAGEOUS is the rare movie that hooks audiences in a deep place and stirs their hunger to know more, but at the same time engages them in some hilarious light-hearted moments.
Four men, one calling: To serve and protect. As law enforcement officers, Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes, David Thomson, and Shane Fuller are confident and focused. 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.
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?
Filled with action-packed police drama, COURAGEOUS is the fourth film from Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia. Riveted moviegoers will once again find themselves laughing, crying, and cheering as they are challenged and 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 men. Raising their children in a God-honoring way? That’s courageous.
