“It does not take a majority to prevail, but a …tireless minority keen on setting brushfires of freedom in people’s minds.” – Sam Adams

Why film?

This series explores a number of sensitive topics that involve a great deal of human pain. In a highly visual society, most people aren’t seeking answers in research studies and long reports. Film still captivates, however, allowing us to share an informed Christian perspective on some of the most challenging issues impacting individuals, families, and society today. Learn how you can bring Seeds of Fire to your community.

What topics does Seeds of Fire address?

Seeds of Fire features a number of Christian and secular documentary films that open up tough conversations about sexuality, relational breakdown, and human identity. We will continue to add more films as they are made available. Sign up to learn about new films.

“If the task of the twentieth century was to rid itself of the Christian sexual ethic, the task of the twenty-first must be to reclaim it.”  Christopher West

Sexual and relational brokenness are two of the most significant human care needs in our time.  Yet, the Church’s response is troubling. Many churches are completely silent on sexual matters. Some offer only a list of biblical prohibitions, but fail to communicate a positive formulation of the beauty of God’s design for sexuality and relationships. Others have embraced the world’s teaching and are abandoning the historic Christian witness on sexuality.

Seeds of Fire is designed to help churches around the country communicate the Christian sexual ethic. 

We have six primary goals:

TO PROCLAIM

the Good News of Jesus Christ to our community in a bold and unexpected way.

TO SHARE

Christian principles and biblical guidance on tough issues facing families, churches, and society today.

TO DISCUSS

matters of deep personal concern and significant public impact with safety and compassion.

TO EQUIP

local churches to address sexual and relational challenges openly and compassionately.

TO HEAL

spiritual, sexual, and relational wounds suffered by individuals, families, and society through the love of Christ.

TO SUPPORT

local, regional, and national organizations conducting human care outreach on these issues.

How do I bring Seeds of Fire to my community?

Seeds of Fire is a highly adaptable film series that can be tailored to your outreach goals. Some screen the films in public venues to engage the wider community, while others use them for Christian discipleship in small group settings. There are four primary types of engagements:

  1. Full-community: open to the public and held in a neutral location
  2. Limited-community: open to the public and held at your church
  3. Private, large group: directed to your congregation only
  4. Private, small group: set up as a small-group study
