Is reconciliation between Evangelical Christians and the Gay community possible? Can common ground be found in the intense culture wars that have consumed our nation? Our documentary film entitled, "For Such A Time As This," seeks to answer these burning questions.
Central to evangelical efforts to reach out to the Gay community are ex-gay ministries that encourage people to pray and help them not be gay. For Such A Time As This explores the issue by interviewing key players from both sides of the growing divide. This film offers a compelling and comprehensive inside-view and illuminates the issue as never before. We aim to turn ignorance into understanding and transform prejudice into promise.
"The film’s goal is to build a bridge and offer hope for all. This much needed film will show that the Love of God can penetrate even the hardest of hearts and provide the catalyst that will cause all the walls to come tumbling down." - Lisa Darden
If you believe that the Love of God is available to everyone and that the ground at the foot of the Cross is level than this is a project that you will be able to wholeheartedly endorse.
Post-Production is underway, with interviews and comments having already been contributed by nationally known actors, theologians, ministers, authors, comedians and professionals from all walks of life.
A major fund raising effort is underway for completion funds for the film and the 2 CD Soundtrack that will accompany the documentary. Please help us bring this much needed and anticipated Documentary film to fruition and please encourage others to help.

As this Holiday season approaches we offer you our sincere thanks for your prayers, help and support. This has been a miraculous year for us at Hope Unlimited Productions we have accomplished so much and our greatly anticipated documentary, "For Such A Time As This" , is nearing completion. We have finished the principal filming, selected the songs and other music and the writing of the script is in its final edits.
We are currently in contract negotiations with the wonderful performers and songwriters and their representatives whose work we seek to use in our film. While most representatives have been kind and generous, several currently require agency-only relationships that limit our
ability to use the music of choice. Please pray with us for God's guidance.
It is quite an experience putting a film together. It requires the cooperation and good will of scores of talented people and the prayers and support of friends like you!
As we move into the final tasks of the film editing, sound editing, synchronizing of the film and sound, titles, master prep and lock, plus the voluminous attendant reporting required by all the music, film and copyright agencies, we are in need of completion funds.
Please give, help us finish the work, and please pray for God's guidance as we complete this amazing project so that all of our voices may be heard. If you have ever thought that you would like to help change the world then this is an excellent opportunity for you to do so.

This is the ad (Press Release) that will be placed in Ft. Lauderdale for the up coming filming at the Church of the Holy Spirit Song on Nov 19th "For Such A Time as This." I think it turned out great! Love, Lisa
These articles are about the upcoming event in Palm Springs, CA Nov 11th 2006 with pastor and organizer Dr. Nick Warner with Evangelicals Concerned and company called 'Love Breaks Out'~Great stuff! All of the people speaking are being featured in the Hope Unlimited Productions Documentary "For Such A Time As This" ...hoping to coordinate a fundraiser for the film in conjunction with this event with 'dynamic duo' Nick and Claire Jordan Grant. It's going to be very special!
Kudos to Nick and everyone pulling it together! We will be there.. hope you will be too!
I have incredible footage and have decided that after the film is finished to complete a series in an effort to continue our work and get all of these amazing stories out there. I’ve gone from filmmaker to historian in less than a year. We have quite an archive.
I will interview Kate Clinton on Tuesday in NYC this week. Then will be with Michael Bussee, the mayor of Palm Springs Ron Oden, Nick Warner and Claire Jordan Grant next weekend and again in November at Nick's rally. Evelyn Shave in Houston is scheduled at the end of this month. I'm hoping Billy Jean King may be filmed next month. Deanna Jaworski and Jill, along with the Church of the Holy Spirit Song are scheduled Nov. 19th. The Mel White, Jeff Lutes, Chad Allan, Dottie Berry, Robbie Sapp, Lars Clausen, and Judy Shepherd footage from the Colorado Springs event is going to blow people away. The a capella duet with Cynthia Clawson and Marsha Stevens at EC in Portland is incredible. The Equality Riders filmed in VA Beach will make people cry and hopefully help wake them up. I've got some great stuff with Justin Lee from GCN ,Wayne Besen and many others. We'll be here all day if I tell you about all the amazing footage we have shot. This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Production is underway, with interviews and music being contributed by John Evans, Kent Philpott, Frank and Anita Worthen, Michael Bussee, Jacob Reitan and the Equality Riders, Tony & Peggy Campolo, Focus on the Family Magazine’s Wendy Cloyd, actor George Tekai, author Anne Rice, Evangelist Billy and Franklin Graham....MORE
I will be in Colorado on July 22nd with Jeff Lutes, Mel White, Chad Allen, Billy Porter and Judy Shepherd and many wonderful, loving families who want to get their message out. If you can be there ...start making your plans. If not keep this in your prayers. With Gratitude, blessings and peace!
