LYNCHBURG, Va., April 25, 2012 /Standard Newswire/ -- As announced today at a joint press conference, Thomas Road Baptist Church will serve as the host church for the new film "Finding Faith." This new faith-based film centers on the work of Bedford, VA Sheriff Mike Brown and DOJ task forces around the country in their groundbreaking work to protect children from Internet predators.
"We are excited to host the film," stated Jonathan Falwell, Senior Pastor. "Mike Brown and his team have done an incredible job of prosecuting predators and making families aware of this danger. We are eager to support their efforts."
The faith-based film will star the national spokesman for the Safe Surfin' Foundation, Erik Estrada. Estrada is best known for his leading role in the television series, "CHiP's." The filming will take place at Thomas Road Baptist Church, Liberty Christian Academy, Liberty University and locations around central Virginia. The casting is underway and will include local talent.
"As a former federal agent, I thought I had seen every conceivable evil that one person could do to another," stated Mike Brown. "However, the world of child porn is the most horrific crime you can imagine. It causes great harm to children and their families. It is horrible. I am hopeful that this film will help educate children and save young lives from this threat."
In attendance at today's press conference: Sheriff Mike Brown, Erik Estrada, Jonathan Falwell, State Senator Steve Newman, Delegate Scott Garrett, Executive Producer Scottie Ward and members of the Internet Crimes Against Children's Task Force.
