Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott talks about the new movie God’s not Dead with producer and actor David White.
David has been working in the entertainment industry in Los Angeles for over fifteen years. Raised in a small farming town outside of Dodge City, Kansas, David grew up the son of a Mennonite preacher.
After high school, David attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago; however, he left Moody after one year and moved to Los Angeles. At the age of nineteen, without knowing anyone, and only six months after moving, David landed a recurring role on the hit CBS TV sitcom, Evening Shade for four years. He played the best friend of Burt Reynolds’s son, David, then went on to make guest appearances on such shows as: Coach, Saved by the Bell, Sisters, Melrose Place, Martial Law, and many others.
Raised in the church, David was very familiar with Christian films, and had a passion to use his gifts and talents to make films that uplift and inspire the human spirit. In 1999, with that passion, David produced and starred in the feature-length film, The Moment After. The following year, he produced and starred in the groundbreaking film, Mercy Streets. David was nominated for a movie guide “best actor” award for his dual roles in the film. Early in 2006, David became a founding partner in the film distribution/production entity Pure Flix Entertainment. Today, Pure Flix maintains its position as the number one Christian studio, producing and distributing more films than any other studio.
David produced and played a lead role in his latest movie, God’s not Dead. This airs the weekend after the movie releases into theatres and you can find a link at http://godsnotdeadthemovie.com.
