Produced by world class filmmaker Gil Netter (Life of Pi and The Blind Side), THE SHACK‘S trailer (http://www.theshack.movie/) has been viewed by over 27 million people on Facebook alone.

 

“Premiere night is the perfect opportunity as a church to receive the message of THE SHACK and then shepherd the message of forgiveness, love of God and healing to our communities,” said Pastor Sam Rodriguez, president of National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference. “If you’ve ever been through something in life and asked God why, this message is for you.”

“Our prayerful and financial support of events like THE SHACK premiere night help to ensure that God’s message is heard to the ends of the earth,” said Maureen Crowley Heil of the Pontifical Mission Societies, Archdiocese of Boston.

“People are REALLY excited about this movie,” said Paul Lauer, CEO & President at Motive Entertainment, which has been conducting leader screenings of THE SHACK nationwide. “We are seeing amazing support from faith leaders of all denominations – in fact, over 1,300 endorsements can be seen at (http://www.theshackendorsements.com/).
