After many profitable years in financial planning, Joe was asked by a friend to help secure finances for faith-based movies, and a new career was born. The orphaned kid from Philly was now a Hollywood movie producer, and that the film he’s producing, I Can Only Imagine, is definitely a full-circle sign that God had his hand on Joe’s life from day one. Because who could imagine that Joe would overcome childhood trauma to even be a stable adult, much less one who brings powerful stories of God’s love to millions of people through film?
Now, Joe and his colleagues hope to use the power and beauty of STORY in I Can Only Imagine to help others see that we can ALL be a part of God’s story if we will just let Him change us from within.
So, when you go see I Can Only Imagine when it opens on March 16, I pray you will remember Joe’s story as well as Bart’s—and maybe take a friend to the movie who might just need a reminder of how God can use hard things in our lives for GOOD.
Tickets are on sale for I Can Only Imagine NOW—grab some friends and go opening weekend! And until then, enjoy the trailer below!
