Alex HendricksWriter, director, actor, and author Alex Kendrick is scheduled to speak on Wednesday, February 28, 2018, at a Super Session during Proclaim 18, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

“We are excited to have Alex Kendrick speak again at our Convention,” said Jerry A. Johnson, President & CEO of NRB. “In this new generation of Christian filmmakers, Alex is a pioneer, and his films reflect and have encouraged the rise of quality Christian films in recent years.”

Alex Kendrick has dedicated his life to serving Jesus Christ and making His truth and love known among the nations through movies, books, speaking, and prayer. Kendrick and his brothers, Stephen and Shannon, operate Kendrick Brothers Productions and are active members of Sherwood Church in Albany, Georgia.

In 2002, Kendrick founded Sherwood Pictures with the blessing of his church’s senior pastor, Michael Catt, and with his brother Stephen began production on their first movie, Flywheel. After an overwhelming response, he partnered with his brother once again to write and produce Facing The Giants. More recently, in 2014, Kendrick co-wrote the screenplay for War Room with his brother Stephen. The film was released theatrically in August of 2015 and became the #1 movie at the box office. 

The Kendricks have also co-authored multiple best-selling books. Their last book, titled The Battle Plan for Prayer, made the New York Times best-sellers list.
