There are more Christian movies hitting our local cineplex than ever before, which is great news. Two films that come out this month—Seven Days in Utopia and Courageous—offer pastor resource sites as well as other materials for churches.

Based on the Christian novel Golf's Sacred Journey: Seven Days at the Links of Utopia, Seven Days in Utopia stars Academy Award-winners Robert Duvall and Melissa Leo.

In the sports drama, young Texas golfer Luke Chisholm (Lucas Black) drops out of the sport after being publicly humiliated during a tournament. When Chisholm unexpectedly gets stranded in Utopia, Texas for a week, he meets an eccentric rancher and former professional golfer Johnny Crawford (Duvall) who teaches him not only about a better swing, but a better way of life.

Seven Days in Utopia is "a rare G-rated film that Christian adults can enjoy without having to leave their values at the altar," according to one pastor.

The film has been heavily marketed to the faith-based community, especially pastors' screenings. The producers have created a ministry resource site, which includes clips, sermon outlines and small group materials. Click here for more information. A faith-based marketing firm based near Hollywood, Grace Hill Media has promoted Seven Days in Utopia through Charisma Media.
