“SHOW ME THE FATHER is the film our nation needs to see. We have become a society that devalues and mocks fathers, but God created the role of fatherhood for a very specific purpose. Many of our children feel unwanted and unworthy because half of their identity is absent. Fathers are necessary for the next generation to heal.”
Nona Jones, Author, Pastor, Speaker, and Executive

“The film is powerful, transformational, and needed for all to see. Each story in this film was powerful and it will keep you in awe as you consider how much our Heavenly Father loves us. I’m a father of four young men and was raised by a good father. I am a first-generation father that is intentionally raising his sons with Jesus being at the center of my family. It was encouraging to me as a father that what I am instilling in my sons is worth it. I was reminded that sons are looking to their fathers for their acceptance, love, masculinity, direction, and their spiritual inheritance.”
Maurice Williams, Chaplain, Jacksonville Jaguars

“We cannot think of an area regarding a father’s impact that this film does not cover, making this outstanding film an incredible tool for pastors, teachers, coaches, and all Christians to use as an open door for ministry to the fatherless families around them.”
Pastor Sean & Jackie Teis, Founders, Life Factors Fatherless Ministries and God is My Dad

"Show Me The Father is full of punch and passion. Each fathering situation portrayed provides insights into the world of fathering which were spot on and inspirational. As a natural father of five, a father-figure to many, and now a grandfather of fourteen, I was moved by each profile. If you’re a dad, a friend of a dad, or even a child, tell everyone to see this movie. It’s riveting and will propel all men to excellence in their fathering.”
Ken R. Canfield, PhD, Founder, National Center for Fathering

“Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER was simply marvelous!”
Dr. Addie Lisby, Chief Communications Officer, The African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church

Chris Broussard, President, K.I.N.G.

“SHOW ME THE FATHER blew me away. It's the most evocative and redemptive documentary because it links the heart of Father God and the ultimate hope for us all...plus it features an epic emotional fatherhood story of my former Seattle Seahawks buddy, Sherman Smith.”
Jeff Kemp, author of Facing the Blitz and former NFL quarterback

“You know all that crud in the world that breaks your heart? When fathers are doing the job we are called to do, most of that crud goes away. Grab your family. Grab some other dads. Mark your calendar for the premiere of Show Me the Father, September 10.”
Jay Payleitner, Bestselling author of 52 Things Kids Need from a Dad and National Speaker

“SHOW ME THE FATHER illuminates the powerful role that God has placed in the hands of every dad. This movie had us riveted from the first minute and cheering, yes, we actually jumped out of our seats toward the end. The time for this critical message is right now for our society. Every family needs to see it and act as God leads.”
Dave and Ann Wilson, Co-Hosts, FamilyLife Today

“SHOW ME THE FATHER is an incredible film, unveiling the pandemic of fatherlessness and showing Godly fathers as the cure.”
G.F. Watkins, Pastor and Founder, Fatherhood Hall of Honor, Intense Men, and Genesis Team

“Having experienced the pain of father wounds from both my biological and adopted fathers, I found myself grappling with emotion throughout the film. SHOW ME THE FATHER nails the struggles, offers hope for the possibility of resolution and restoration, and shows the healing power of God as our eternal Father. You, and all those you know and love, need to see this film. I believe that SHOW ME THE FATHER—combined with helpful follow-up resources—will impact all of your lives in a transformative way.”
Dr. Bob Reccord, Author, National Speaker

“In 1 Corinthians 4:15, the Apostle Paul tells us that, ‘For though we have ten thousand instructors in Christ, we have not many fathers.’ This is as true today as when the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to write it in his first letter to the Church at Corinth. That is why we welcome this powerful documentary: Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER. It's time for the resurgence of Christ-filled, Godly fathers and Affirm Films is inspiring the great awakening of the power of dad. Go see this film. Study it and unleash the power of God's call for true, loving, and courageous fatherhood for a broken, directionless world.”
Rev. Shanan E. Jones, M.Div., M.A.C.E., President of Concerned Black Clergy of Metropolitan Atlanta

“Ten years ago, I saw God use the film COURAGEOUS to rebuild men, restore families, and strengthen the church. Now, Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER gives us a real-life look at God’s heart for fatherhood. I can’t wait to see how He uses this movie!”
Jason Ellerbrook, Executive/Discipleship Pastor, First Baptist Church Murray, Ken. (Former Lifeway Men's Ministry Leader)

“The movie has that Kendrick touch! I can see God using it like their other movies, with this one possibly causing a revival among dads of all ages.”
Dr. Clarence Shuler, President / CEO, Building Lasting Relationships

“By far the greatest challenge faced today is the emerging generation of fatherless children. SHOW ME THE FATHER does an outstanding job of using real-life examples of both the urgent need for fathers, and how father-influences change outcomes. I came away moved, motivated, and convicted! There are options and different ways that men can become positive influences in fatherless children that then changes lives and future generations. Without reserve I heartily recommend this movie for all to see and share.”
Mark Lubbock, CEO/General Council, Gulf South Men/United Methodist Men

Marc Harper, Founder, Starfish Stories

“WOW!! I just watched Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER. So powerful. A must see. For those who may or may not be struggling with an estranged father, an absent father, or even a deceased father, this film reminds us that we can find rest knowing our Heavenly Father will take care of us and He can provide us with someone in the earthly realm to fill that void.”
Antwan Steele, Executive Director of Faith & Prejudice (Nona Jones Ministries)

“There were many moments of tears of joy and some sadness, yet undeniable hope! To me, Kendrick Brothers’ SHOW ME THE FATHER is the story of God and the beauty of masculinity expressed through the power of fatherhood.”
Tamika Morrison, Director of Communications, Fathers Incorporated

“Extremely impressed!"
Glenn Stanton, Director Global Family Formation Studies, and Author

“I believe without a doubt that SHOW ME THE FATHER and its incredible real-life stories will go a long way in inspiring viewers that despite the negative impact that the failures, shortcomings and absences of an earthly father can have on a child. Knowing we have a Heavenly Father that will step in and step up in their place is not only reassuring, but can offer a true peace that only God Himself can offer.”
Jay Heilman, Founder, Today’s Christian Entertainment and Kingdom Builder
