Weary from the showiness and materialism that has overtaken his ministry efforts, Guy (Ramsey) goes on a journey to get back in touch with the heart of ministry and be a real role model to his youth group kids. He makes the difficult decision to cut short his speaking tour managed by his money-focused agent (Faison) after realizing that his reputation has become more fame based than Gospel-driven.
But when Guy attempts to return to regular youth ministry, he is thrust into the throes of dissuading the youth group from performing a strange and potentially blasphemous stunt for the upcoming Easter service, starring a young, zealous new Believer, Blaise. In attempting to manage his youth group while navigating an unexpected love interest in the Senior Pastor’s daughter (Cahill) and being a new father to his grown daughter (Manfredi), Guy ultimately rediscovers and puts on a powerful presentation of why we all need to put our hope in Jesus and not in ourselves.

My husband and I really enjoyed Church People! Not only did it make us laugh, it was also profound and touching. I may or may not admit to having tears in my eyes at one point.
I loved the way the story kept my attention the whole way through and I honestly did not expect things to end the way they did! The acting was high quality, the story delightful, and the gospel masterfully presented in an engaging manner.
Here is what my husband said:
Lighthearted, quirky, and humorous.” ” … an excellent job of answering the dilemma of the church in a post-modern world.
I highly recommend Church People! You can find more information on it at https://churchpeoplefilm.com/.
