The Purpose Of this Book
“As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” 2 Timothy 4:5 ESV
When my wife and I were called to the full-time ministry to the entertainment world, I was told that I would have to raise my own support as if it were a negative thing. You know, eyebrow raised, voice changed and a slow star at my throat looking for an Adam’s Apple to dance up and down, with the full anticipation my an answer that goes something like this “Oh?” “Really?” But rather my reaction was “Okay.”
You see, when God has called you to His work and not your own, you know that it doesn’t matter about how the money comes in, what matters is how soon can I “GO” into the world and fulfill God’s call on my life. In other words, it’s about other people and how Jesus sees them, not how painful is it going to be to pan out MY dreams.
It was September 18th 2013, God called Mandy my wife and I to help and serve the people of the entertainment world and film industry across Canada and beyond. It crazy to look back on the years past and see what God has prepared for you as you’re about to go out in obedience to love on His people.
After two years of bible college back in 2000, God had called me into the fulltime film industry. Not as a ministry but simply as a job and passion that had been stirred up in my life since I was 14 years old. Throughout the years of working in the film industry you begin to learn that film as a byproduct on the screen is awesome. But as a byproduct to the personal lives of others was majority lead by destruction, pain and even death.
Was this a shock to me? Absolutely it was. Even to this day I hear stories about some of the astounding destruction that happens behind the scenes of film that brings me to my knees.
In this book I will tell you some true stories that have happened right here in Canada and some stories that are still happening right now as we speak. These stories are raw, heartbreaking and extremely vulgar at times. Please understand that these are true stories and these are some of my friends that are going through hell. In fact a lot of these people are searching for a better hell. But we know it doesn’t work like that.
It is my prayer that as you read this book that you’ll be compelled to want to see change in the entertainment world. I literally have friends that are so close to death as a result of sin birthing more sin, ultimately leading to death.
“Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.” James 1:5 ESV
The purpose of this book is simply to raise awareness of what really goes on in the entertainment world and film industry. Thus, the subtitle to this book is well suiting “Revealing The Darkness Behind The Glamour.”
Jamie has been in FILM since 1994, and is a full time minister of Jesus Christ to the FILM INDUSTRY
