Praise Band: The Movie


“Praise Band: The Movie is a funny, yet touching story of one band’s efforts in a small town church. Through their growing music ministry, the band not only reaches out to their community but also grows in their own individual walk with God. Matt Young, the new wardship leader, is hired by Pastor James Monroe to serve Crossroad Community Church when their music director of 30 years suddenly retires. Immediately, these young church leaders meet with mush opposition from members of their congregation who still cling to traditional roots. Led by church treasurer Wayne Wilson, the congregation resists the idea of change and this new style of music. Matt quickly assembles an unlikely group of talented musicians, Mark Lewis, Luke Daniels, John Collins and Wayne’s granddaughter Ginny Taylor, each dealing with their own unique life issues. Together, can they find a common bond and unite a dwindling flock before it’s too late?

Dove Review

Every small town church has members that are set in their ways. Crossroad Community is no different. Here is a charming story of the importance of not judging others and that everyone should know that God has a plan for all of us that may not be apparent right away. Filled with wonderful music that praises God and warms your heart as the story plays out, this movie is wholesome entertainment for the entire family. Dove proudly awards the Dove Seal to “Praise Band: The Movie”.
