About the film:
Eighteen foster homes. Nine arrests. One life-changing moment.
After Brendan King’s life spiraled to rock bottom, the teen found hope in a new relationship with Christ while serving time in a juvenile penitentiary. Recently released from prison, Brendan finds solace in the foster home of a couple struggling with suppressed grief.
As the city-bred teen enrolls at a suburban high school, he finds support from a group of believers. Yet the bonds of his old way of life—and the gang that wants to know where he hid their stash on a long-ago night—are strong. In his darkest moment, Brendan found faith. Now he must decide if it’s worth the price to hold on to it.
KING’S FAITH is produced by DiBella and Faith Street Film Partners LLC, a Rochester, NY-based collective of filmmakers, churches, investors, and supporters.

King's Faith is about Brendan King, a young man whose troubled past includes multiple foster homes and arrests. After finding a relationship with Christ in his most recent incarceration, King begins his new life in his latest home with foster parents who are dealing with their own issues of grief. King's faith is challenged when his past catches up to him.
This movie is great for pre-teens and teenagers. It gave us a wonderful opportunity to have great discussions about standing firm in our faith in the face of challenges.
This film is rated PG-13 for violence, drug content, and thematic events, but it was just fine for the 10 and 13 year old's to watch.
