Hostage - Sneak Preview

We are starting a great series this weekend called Hostage.  In the series, we are going to address  how to break free from several things that can hold us hostage like fear, pride, anger and jealousy.

I wanted to show you all a video that we will be using in the message this weekend as a lead-in to Craig’s message about how bitterness can hold us hostage.  I think the team did a great job with the video and thought you might be interested in seeing it in advance.  Let me know what you think.  It will be available on OPEN after the series is over if you’d like to use it in your church.

    Gasoline… Bobby this series is going to be awesome! The Hostage trailer and The John B. voiceover were great as well.

    I can relate to that kind of anger. I can also relate to forgiveness and I know what your church is all about so I can’t wait to see the rest of the video. :)

    I wanted to kill the guy that my wife had an affair with… I am glad that I didnt do it. I have since forgiven them both. Thank you, Jesus.

    I seriously respect the creative team that works to formulate what those of us “in front of the curtain” get to see. I pray that you all enjoy what you do, as much as the rest of us enjoy being moved by it.

    Create away,

    Wow! Words can’t express my gratitude right now. My sister-in-law came tonight, and this was the perfect message for her…and for me. The work that you do is phenomenal. It could mean the difference in a failing marriage, in children’s lives, in a brother and sister’s relationship. Thank you for what you do.

    it took him awhile to get to part 2, but it is an interesting story.

    I can’t think of a better synonym for bondage than hostage. That series title is GOLD!

    Hi Guys

    This is a very well written and shot piece of AV - it leaves so much quietly unsaid while at the same time speaking so loudly to any who will choose to listen. Very powerful indeed!!

    Bless ya heaps
