Kendrick bros. film ‘Show Me The Father’ helps viewers ‘relate to God as the perfect Father’

Written by on July 6, 2021

Everybody has a fatherhood story, whether good or bad, and every person’s identity and beliefs about God are profoundly connected to that relationship.

That’s according to filmmaker Stephen Kendrick, who, with his brother, Alex, is behind the forthcoming documentary “Show Me the Father,” releasing in theaters nationwide on Sept. 10. The film weaves personal stories of fatherhood with truths about the fatherhood of God to point viewers to the perfect Father.

In an interview with The Christian Post, Kendrick revealed that “Show Me The Father” from Sony Pictures’ Affirm Films was birthed in prayer.

“God said, ‘You need to make this documentary about fatherhood.’ So we moved forward by faith, and we were able to connect with some of the coolest, most emotional stories about fatherhood. We took some of the most powerful truths about the fatherhood of God, put it all together, and prayed over it,” he said.

“We want people to learn how to relate to God as the perfect Father they’ve always wanted and longed for, but never had,” the father of six added. “The fatherhood of God was the design for God creating fatherhood on Earth. All the roles that dad is supposed to play on Earth come from God’s roles in our lives.”

Fatherhood, Kendrick added, is “something that is very close to our hearts,” as it was their own father’s commitment to Christ that transformed their family tree.

The Church and Christian ministries, Kendrick said, should reflect James 1:27, which encourages Christians “to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction.” 

As their first documentary release, the Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER aims to surprise viewers with captivating stories interwoven with inspirational truths about the fatherhood of God. The Kendrick Brothers will once again take moviegoers on an incredibly cinematic and emotional journey in this powerful film coming to theaters nationwide on September 10 2021.
