Faith-based ‘Unconditional’ to be shown at SBC

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP) — Going to the movies can be an expensive outing, but this month at the annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in New Orleans, LifeWay Films is hosting a free screening of “Unconditional,” a new faith-based film.

At 7 p.m. CST, Tuesday, June 19, LifeWay Films will show “Unconditional” in Auditorium C of the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. No tickets are required for entrance.

“Unconditional” — which will be released this fall — is a story about forgiveness, healing from losing a loved one and getting people out of their comfort zones to reach others for Christ.

According to Scott Mills, manager of LifeWay Films, “Unconditional” is based on the real life story of Joe Bradford, a Nashville man devoted to mentoring fatherless children in the inner city.

The film stars a number of well-known film and television actors including Lynn Collins, Michael Ealy and Bruce McGill.

“Cinematic storytelling has proven to be a powerful way to share a message,” Mills said. “Successful films like ‘Courageous’ and ‘October Baby’ continue to raise the bar for message-driven movie production.

“‘Unconditional’ is a solid tool for churches to reach their community. It will motivate us all to do something in our community outside the walls of the church to help meet others’ needs. For those who come to the screening at the SBC meeting in New Orleans, we ask that they help spread the word about the film to their fellow pastors and local theaters back home.”
