NEW MOVIE WELCOME TO INSPIRATION
BASED ON TIM ENOCHS’ BOOK THE STREET SWEEPER
FAMILY FILM WITH HEART STARS MUSICAL GREATS JASON CRABB, LARRY GATLIN AND CHRISTY SUTHERLAND
DVD RELEASES JANUARY 20
Los Angeles, Calif. (November 21, 2014) – Based on the popular and much buzzed-about book The Street Sweeper by Tim Enochs, Welcome to Inspiration brings a small town to life on the big screen. Releasing January 20 to DVD, Welcome to Inspiration is a family film with a musical heart starring a cast of well-known Christian and country artists, including GRAMMY® Award-winners Jason Crabb and Larry Gatlin, as well as Contemporary Christian artist Christy Sutherland. Additional cast members include Jackie Stewart (Slingblade, A Time to Kill) as The Street Sweeper and Regina McCrary of The McCrary Sisters.
Welcome to Inspiration follows the true-to-life story lines of people searching for meaning in the midst of unfulfilled dreams, challenging circumstances and unexpected struggles. When a big city couple find themselves stranded in a small town, their lives are changed forever. A chance encounter with a Street Sweeper opens their eyes to inspirational life lessons that come alive through the town’s residents: a widow coping with the death of her soldier daughter, a small business owner rescuing a young runaway, a mechanic finding faith and a young musician bravely pursuing his dream. Like Enochs’ book, the movie reveals seven Bible-based principles, which Enochs dubs the “Seven Revelations of Irrefutable Success” that point toward a life of increased spiritual fulfillment.
With themes of faith, family and discipleship, Welcome to Inspiration points viewers to the Word of God as the source of ultimate authority and direction. The film effectively moves audiences to spark personal spiritual journeys, using drama, music and emotion to seek Scripture for use in daily life. When living in Inspiration a child, a marriage , even an entire town can be saved because with God all things are possible (Matthew19:26).
