It was 1994 when the decision was made that "FILM" would be the way to express and fulfill the life of Jamie Rauch, actor/director/writer/producer and author.
Jamie encountered Jesus in January 1997, and has never looked back to what his life could've been. He lost most of his friends and family as he proceed on with a life with Jesus. At times Jamie thought all of his dreams were over, only to later to be called by God to Bible College in 2000.
Once Bible College was over for Jamie in 2002, he married the love of his life Mandy. They soon proceeded a life of making it in the film industry. By 2006 Jamie made his first major award winning film as a co-producer, ultimately winning "best international film" in LA at the "168 film festival" in 2010.
Around Sept 2013 Jamie was in discussion with a friend about his heart to change the film industry, for Good! He was talking about the effect film has on our culture and the way we think and even the way we view things at times, but also the corruption that takes place behind the scenes of the filmmaking process, such as drugs, alcoholism, OD’s, abuse, long hours of work, divorce and over medicating etc. So out of this heart for change, the idea was birthed for Jamie to be a sort of “Chaplain” or "life coach" to the workers of the film industry.
So from that day forth, God has been in action, setting this dream in motion. In a short few months The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada (PAOC, has come on board to partner with us through Mission Canada to be the first film industry Chaplin to connect and encourage the Christians that are already a part of the film industry and to reach out to and show the love of Christ to those that are searching and lost. To ultimately build a team of like-minded people across Canada that are excited for change and to see the biggest influential industry in Canada to be under God's leadership! Jamie and Mandy Rauch have this to say about their ministry as they embark into the fundraising stage:
"We believe that the Kingdom of God WILL advance in Film Industry/Hollywood and we want YOU to be a part of this amazing ministry. This ministry is self-funded, strictly funded by donations. Every donor will be kept up to date with newsletters and annual meetings. You also get a tax receipt and full budget disclosure upon request. We want to try and meet all of our kind donors. Please pray and ask God how much a month He wants you to give. Thank you for all your support! We need you, and the Entertainment world needs you! Be blessed and grace and peace to you!"
