Wearing the ‘Badge of Faith’
At twelve:thirty media, our goal is to not only provide quality media content and training to help you create amazing experiences, but to make you aware of some incredible faith-based resources available to you and your church. We also get insights into other professionals in the church and faith-based media space to learn from each other how to use media to reach people with the Gospel.
I recently spoke with Director Donald Leow about his latest film Badge of Faith. The film is about a cop named Bryan Lawrence who’s dedicated his career to the concept of ‘Protect and Serve’. But a chance encounter with two fugitives ends with Bryan being kicked in the face, paralyzing him from the neck down. His injury was the same as that of actor Christopher Reeve. When Bryan makes a promise to his future daughter-in-law (played by Ashley Bratcher), that he’ll walk her down the aisle, that the film takes an inspirational turn.
I spoke with Donald about how he turned from missionary to filmmaker and is still involved in both fields today. We also talked about the journey of bringing Bryan’s incredible story to film and how you and your church can support it.
There will be two screenings of the film this coming Monday, October 26th:
Goldsboro, NC at 7:00pm (For tickets visit: http://www.goldsboroparamount.com/badgeoffaith.aspx)
