Welcome to our writers page. This page introduces you to some of the writers who have helped to develop ministry resources to accompany Faith Based Movies that open in theaters across the country and are then made available for churches to use as outreach and teaching tools.

Our team is made up of Pastors, Authors and even a Historian from Israel. Each one has volunteered to join this team because they believe in the mission of All Pro Pastors International and our commitment to serve pastors.

Each team member has written either a sermon outline, discussion guide, 5 day reading plan, entire sermon, or something else for one or more movies that was released in 2023.

We are honored to Partner with Collide Media in providing these resources for your use. The movies that our team worked on this year are:

  • “Left Behind, The Rise of the Antichrist”
  • “His Only Son”
  • “Route 60 The Biblical Highway”
  • “Afterlife”
  • “The Shift”

Currently (2024) we are working on “47 Days” which releases in March. Collide Media is the premiere marketing and production company in the USA for faith based movies.

Our team also worked with Sorbo Studios on their movie “Miracle in East Texas”, providing ministry resources particularly for pastors.
Now we want to thank our team for their hard work and ask for you to take a moment and meet our very talented writing team!
