Called to Tell People’s God Stories through Books and Movies

Hi, I’m Chris McKinney, Founder and Executive Editor of Called Writers Christian Publishing.

My great passion is helping to tell people’s true “God stories.” Jesus Christ is alive, and He’s very active in the world today. He does miraculous things in people’s lives. For example, He radically transforms people that the rest of us view as hopeless.

He forgives the unforgivable.

He heals the sick.

He raises the dead.

I have been working for the last 10 years, through various media, to tell people’s God stories. It started with newsletters, blogs, and online articles before moving on to magazines and then books.

Now it’s time to bring some of those stories to life on the big screen. I’m looking for stories that demonstrate to the world that Jesus Christ is real and that He loves them. The kinds of stories that are so over-the-top amazing that you know only God could have done it!

Here are five such stories that I’m working to have made into movies right now:

1) FULLY PARDONED is the true story and testimony of Marcus Waters, who gave his life to Jesus 14 years ago, when he was still a full-patch member of the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club. Marcus’s story lets people know that no matter what they’ve done, Jesus is ready and waiting to forgive them and welcome them into His family. 

2) THE GATES OF HELL is the true story and testimony of Mike Puglise, a prominent Atlanta attorney and frequent guest legal expert for media outlets like Fox News and CNN. He had a near-death experience and was taken to the gates of Hell. Mike is a very credible witness, and his testimony to the world is that Hell is real, but no one has to go there!

3) FROM RUBBLE TO REDEMPTION is the true story of Jim Jenkins, a U.S. Navy Chaplain who served at Ground Zero in the aftermath of 9/11 and saw God show up in amazing ways.

4) ONE OF THE FIRST is the true story of Ralph Stokes, who has had a divine calling for racial integration, unity, and harmony from the time he was very young. Over and over in his life, he continually found himself being the first Black person to go into a particular arena or do a certain thing. Ralph is also a Christian who spent his life showing love to those who opposed him due to the color of his skin. Ralph’s life will make for a compelling movie that mainstream media and audiences will embrace. Ralph never preached to anyone. He just spent his life living out the gospel in dramatic and inspiring ways. Various parts of Ralph’s story have been featured over the years by the New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN,, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and many more media outlets.

5) OUR LOVE MULTIPLIED is the true story of Brooke and Chris Martin, a Christian couple who donated eight frozen embryos. Twenty years later, God would orchestrate a series of events that led them to connect with triplets who were born from their frozen embryos—right at a time when the triplets needed them most. Their story has been told by major media outlets the world over (Today, People Magazine, etc.) and has touched audiences estimated to be in the hundreds of millions.
