I Will Not Fear played during the CONNECT Worship Service in Collegedale, Tennessee on June 20th 2015. This screening was especially significant for the team and for Ed Rusk. In a way, CONNECT helped create the film. Over a year ago in the spring, Ed Rusk shared his testimony during a service and it was a member from the congregation who let the team know when they were struggling to find a story that summer.

After traveling around the country, it was a pleasure to finally share the film with the CONNECT Church family. “You never know how far what happens here will go,” Producer Mark Comberiate told the congregation.

You have got to do what it takes to cross that finish line.

After the film was shown, Ed Rusk shared a brief word. “This is really not a film about me. This is a film about God.” He went on to remind the congregation that although things may get worse, there is an end in sight. “There a bottom line, and you have got to do what it takes to cross that finish line. When it’s tough, you have to have something that you can draw on.”

Before and after the service, Producer Mark Comberiate and Cinematographer Dillan Forsey were present to answer questions about making I Will Not Fear to those who stuck around.

Many came by before and after the screening to see how  I Will Not Fear  was filmed.
