For what is described will be “a short time,’’ Clark County residents will have the opportunity to view an eagerly anticipated new movie release beginning Friday (Feb. 24).

Jesus Revolution is a faith-based movie from the same production team that made I Can Only Imagine and American Underdog. The new movie is based on the true story told in the book by the same name, by author Greg Laurie. 

The story follows the spiritual awakening that occurred for many people in the early 1970s. A depiction provided on the movie’s website reads: “In the 1970s, young Greg Laurie (played by Joel Courtney) is searching for all the right things in all the wrong places: until he meets Lonnie Frisbee (played by Jonathan Roumie), a charismatic hippie-street-preacher. Together with Pastor Chuck Smith (played by Kelsey Grammer), they open the doors of Smith’s languishing church to an unexpected revival of radical and newfound love, leading to what TIME Magazine dubbed a JESUS REVOLUTION.’’

Pastor Smith has ties to the Clark County community. US Digital Founder and Owner David Madore and his wife Donna were married by Smith.

“Pastor Chuck Smith’s faithful ministry has impacted many people including us personally,’’ Madore said. “As our pastor when we lived in Southern California, he married Donna and I at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa.’’

The Madores are among many area residents eager to view Jesus Revolution.

    An especially kind friend invited me to a service at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa when I was a teenager. There I heard about why Jesus, the Messiah, came to live in this world. For the first time, I also heard that He would come again, which I later read about in the Bible, book of Matthew, Chapter 24.

    It was an event I will always remember because I sensed deeply the love of God in that chapel. Afterward, I bought a Bible to better understand the whole story, and have been reading it and learning more about that Love ever since. (also in study groups and houses of worship.)

    Thanks for posting the link for times for the “Jesus Revolution” . There are 3 theaters in Vancouver showing this movie, east, middle, and north county.

    Is a revival starting in America among young people?
