Known Regional Movie Ministries
No, we make no claim this is an exhaustive list. These are, however, at least ministries that we know whose mission and goals are consistent with growing an ongoing audience to support Christian Movies.
These are independently run ministries. While there may be name similarities (a huge honor, but by no means required) or common efforts, there is no “control infrastructure” so particular efforts by one group may not be the same as another, and decisions on particular films may also vary.
This page is primarily for people looking to start a movie ministry to see what else is out there, or for people moving to a particular area wanting to see if there is something already in the works.
Our prayer remains 500. We know of 8 specifically, but expect this number to grow (perhaps significantly) in 2016!
If you are operating a movie ministry intentionally looking to grow audiences (and not just promoting one film or from one studio) please let us know and we can discuss/confirm your inclusion to the list.
Ministries listed in order of our discovery and their confirmation to be added, not actual start of their efforts to promote Christian films.
