Overcomer Movie August 23

Last summer I had the privilege of being on set for the new Kendrick Bros. film Overcomer. My son CJ and I attended their boot camp before the first day of filming and helped for a couple days in the art department building sets and working on some set dressing. A few weeks later my wife Mary and I were back on set and were able to sit in as background extras for the opening scene. The scene took most of the day to film but I had a blast sitting and standing then sitting and standing next to Eric Ludy, an author and teacher that I’ve respected for many years.

Recently Mary and I attended the red carpet premiere of Overcomer in Columbus, GA and in my opinion, it is the best Kendrick film yet, and I’ve liked them all since their first film Flywheel. Be sure to take you family to go see this on opening weekend. The film is in theaters starting August 23rd. Be sure to look for Mary and I in the opening seen and let me know what you think of our debut.

Who is Phillip Telfer? What is the core of my identity? I’m a child of God and a disciple of Jesus Christ. What you do is not as important as who you are. But in case you’re wondering about what I do, here you go…

Husband & Father: Mary and I have been married for 28 years and blessed with 4 children, one fantastic son-in-law, and a precious grand-daughter.

Minister: I serve as a pastor by day (and night) and I’m the founder and director of the nonprofit ministry Media Talk 101

Coffee Nut: When I’m not serving the flock, I’m serving good, home roasted coffee to family and friends.

Woodworker: Another hobby that has “turned” into a small family business is woodturning. Working with wood a little bit each week keeps me sane in this big world of personalities.

Film Festival Director: Since that didn’t seem like enough on my plate I also started the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild.

Author: When there’s time to spare, I love to take  a Pilot G2 gel pen and a pad of paper and write! I used to pour a lot of creative writing energy into music, and now that has shifted to the fun of writing a novel.

In November of 2013 I began planning an outreach to Christian filmmakers that I called the Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild. I wanted to provide training in addition to establishing a film festival so I invited around 30 speakers to give over 50 workshops during the first three days of this week long event. That first conference was held in March 2014. For anyone considering running a large event I don’t recommend trying to pull it off in only four months, but by God’s grace, my small team and I were able to host the first annual event. Now six years later we are planning for our 7th annual Christian Worldview Film Festival in 2020. Our small staff and a bunch of amazing volunteers are helping to cultivate a movement of Christians who desire to create and disseminate visual media that honors God, brings Him glory, and is effective to impact the church and the world for Christ and His kingdom. Here are a few pictures from our first year and some highlight videos from the last seven years.
