On Fandango, look what viewers had to say:
I’ve been wanting to see this movie since I first heard about it and I’m glad I went. This movie shows the power of God’s love, and shows that God doesn’t call the equipped he equips the called. It’s an emotional roller coaster. I laughed, cried, and laughed some more and left the movie theater smiling. I can’t wait til this movie comes out on DVD so I can add it to my collection.
Fantastic movie inspired by a true story. This love story with a great message can be enjoyed by all ages! Director Steve Race & executive producer Galley Molina do a wonderful job of portraying a man’s life that is changed by his newly discovered faith in God. The main actors Adrienne Bailon, & Jeff JaRule Atkins create believable chemistry throughout the film. Equally fantastic is the music! Grammy winning artist Israel Houghton provides several new songs as part of the movie’s soundtrack. If you think this is your typical faith based film you will be pleasantly surprised. From the cinematography, to the music & some of Hollywood’s more famous actors, this movie definitely comes across as a mainstream film.
Cars. Good looks. Mansions. Money. Women. Miles Montego has it all. Including a past. He was king of the streets as a high-level drug trafficker, and although he has tried to move on, the DEA isn’t convinced. Miles is still rolling with his old friends and colleagues, and the feds are certain he has not fully retired from his criminal past. When Miles meets Vanessa Leon, a woman who is different than every other woman he’s met, he is drawn to her beauty and her faith. She is a “church girl” in every sense of the word. Increasingly, he is torn between a life that he knows and a love that he feels. As Vanessa experiences his lavish lifestyle, mobster-type friends, gun play, and encounters with past women, Vanessa must reconcile her faith in God and her growing love for Miles. Both are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother, federal charges, his friends being indicted, the strain on his relationship with Vanessa, almost losing her in a near-fatal car accident, and finally the spiritual breakdown that brings him on his knees to face God one-on-one.
I’M IN LOVE WITH A CHURCH GIRL is a powerful, inspiring story of a love between a man and a woman, a gift of second chances, and a family at home and in church that never stops praying and believing.
