I would highly recommend it to any and all at a time when people have so little regard for the Christian faith or who may looking for some answers in this chaotic secular society in which we live.” - Rev. John M. Robertson (retired)
"I must say it really pulled upon my emotions.... I have also heard from other members of my congregation how much they enjoyed the movie also. I would highly recommend this movie to other churches. It is a well done movie with a great story that will have a positive effect upon anyone attending." - Pastor Joe Calloway, Grace Walk Church, Phoenix, AZ
“My husband and I enjoyed the film and the transformational message. I am the administrator of [a] Christian School. I am interested in showing The Current at [our school] as an outreach to middle school youth groups in our area. I believe that students need to see the portrayal of the young man in the movie, his struggle with parents/issues in his life, the spiritual battle of this critical age as they wrestle with what they believe, and the influence that young people can have on adults. My desire is to offer it to youth pastors as an outreach so that their young people can invite un-churched friends.” - Julie Hewitt, Principal, Rapid City Christian School, Rapid City, SD
“Thank you very much; I am enjoying [YOUR CHURCH] a lot! After [NAME] brought us to that movie "the Current"... Made me do a 180 (not that I was doing anything wrong but I felt like I slipped away from living for God like I used to). Not going to lie I walked in the movie thinking 'great' and walked out bawling my eyes out wanting to be a 'better me with Gods help', trying to go to as many church activities, praying like I used to, doing as much for others as I can do, reading the Bible like I used to do etc... In the past 3 weeks or so I've just 'felt' better; I feel like a different person. Which is amazing that something as simple as a 'small time' movie opened my eyes when all these other 'big movies' have never hit me in such a way; I am so grateful for the opportunity to see that movie. I owe the filmmaker a huge Thank you; I cannot express what it's done for my life, my family etc." - From a letter to a Pastor
