New faith film All Saints
From the studio that brought you Miracles from Heaven, Sony Pictures Releasing Canada has announced the upcoming film All Saints, will be in Canadian theaters Aug. 25. All Saints is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny Anglican church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of faithful Burmese refugees. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
After trading in his corporate sales career to become a pastor, Michael’s first assignment is All Saints, a quaint country church with a dozen members. It comes with a catch: he has to close the church doors for good and sell the prime piece of land on which it sits. 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. Michael must choose between his assignment to 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.
The AFFIRM Films team has been working alongside director Steve Gomer and writer Steve Armour for five years to bring their vision for this important and timely story to life. “It’s a joy to see the amazing cast and crew come together to pour their hearts and craft into presenting the journey of Michael and Aimee Spurlock,” says Rich Peluso, head of AFFIRM Films. These ordinary people did extraordinary things as they cut through to the heart of what God called them to do in putting their faith in action and reaching out to the refugee Karen community in Nashville.”
