Alex Kendrick was a Media Director at a church in Georgia when God called him to make movies. Over the last few years, along with his brothers Stephen and Shannon, they have written, produced and directed some of the most powerful faith films of our time.
Their new movie Overcomer comes to theaters August 23rd. This is a great movie to use and promote in your church. From small group material to books and bible studies, the Kendrick team has produced another great movie for the Christian community and beyond.

About the film
Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team’s state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant in town suddenly shuts down and hundreds of families begin moving away, John must come to grips with the challenges facing his family and his team. Urged by the school’s principal to fill-in and coach a sport he doesn’t know or like, John is frustrated and questioning his worth… until he crosses paths with a student struggling with her own journey.
Filled with a powerful mix of faith, a twist of humor, and a ton of heart, the Kendrick Brothers return to theaters with OVERCOMER, their newest feature following FACING THE GIANTS, FIREPROOF, COURAGEOUS, and the #1 box-office hit, WAR ROOM. The inspiring family film stars Alex Kendrick, Priscilla Shirer, Shari Rigby, Cameron Arnett, and introduces Aryn Wright-Thompson.
