*A must see faith-based independent film for the season is the musical “Church,” an inspiring story of faith, redemption and forgiveness.

Produced by Gospel Jam, LLC, the film stars television veteran Darius McCrary, who plays the role of a “prodigal son” Daniel Rhodes; Joseph C. Phillips as the Deacon Melvin; Art Evans as Pastor Jones; Sam Sarpong as Jay; and Daryl Coley as Deacon Cole.

“If there’s one thing African Americans can relate to is church,” noted Tommy Ross, managing partner of Gospel Jam, LLC and executive producer. “Everyone has a story about the church they attend. What we have done is taken those funniest stories, blended them with some original music and unforgettable characters to create a cinematic experience that will not be forgotten.”

Faithful Central Bible Church (FCBC) in Inglewood, Calif., will host a screening of the film on Oct. 16, 2010. Additional screenings will be held in Houston, Charlotte, and Sacramento, Calif.

“We are excited about hosting the premiere screening of Church,” noted Bishop Ulmer, senior pastor of FCBC. “This provides us with an opportunity to reach and minister to our parishioners and non-church goers in an interesting and entertaining way.”
