What People Are Saying

“The burgeoning Christian orphan care movement includes a vast diversity of poignant expressions. With well-crafted cinematography and music, Rescued provides moving story-windows into the robust response of one branch of the Church to God’s call to care for the orphan in distress.”

Jedd Medefind, President, Christian Alliance for Orphans

Rescued, like the subject it covers, adoption, is profound and beautiful, down to earth and sublime. It will encourage you to rejoice in your adoption into the family of God, and may just goad you into seeking those who are still afar off. Watch it and be moved. Better yet, watch it, and move.”

R.C. Sproul Jr., Director, Highlands Ministries

Rescued is a powerful film that shows adoption being the visible gospel. Through powerful family testimonials and strong Biblical insight, it will inspire you to evaluate your role in following God’s mandate to care for orphans.”

Marc Andreas, Bethany Christian Services

“Finally, a professionally-produced, powerful documentary worthy of the subject it is treating – Adoption! Every Christian church and every Christian family in America should have access to this important film.”

Kevin Swanson, Director, Generations with Vision, Speaker, Radio Host

Rescued” is an invaluable resource for every Christian who wants to live in obedience to God’s will. It is an awesome viewing experience and this one receives five Doves our highest rating rating!”

The Dove Foundation (full review)

“The quality of Rescued is excellent, but what spoke to my heart was the loving spirit it which it was done. Reflecting on “the state of the church” and the direction of our country, the end of the film caused me to reflect on Esther 4:14 “for such a time as this.” Rescued is a living testimony to the will of God for our lives – simple obedience to what God has called us to.”

Ed Hirshman, Director, Harvesters International Ministries

“I watched Rescued and was thrilled with the inspiring stories coupled with the compelling call to Christians to participate in adoption. Adoption and orphan care is intrinsically linked to the Gospel and the church. Historically, the church has championed the cause of the orphan. Lost since the implementation of government programs for needy children in the early part of the 20th century, the church is rediscovering it’s God appointed role. This is a very exciting time in the church to not only practice adoption, but to develop the necessary church-based ministries to support families facing both pre-adoption and post-adoption needs.”

Mark Tatlock, Executive VP, The Master’s College

“As the father of two, now adult, adopted daughters, I found Rescued to be an excellent call to the body of Christ to “step up to the plate” and care for widows and orphans as the Word commands. “Rescued” is a quality film and the adoptive families in the movie share, both in their words and the expanding of their families through adoption, that their heartbeats match that of God. Well done.”

Jerry Johnson, Safe Families for Children, Central Valley, CA

“Adoption is a pro-life action and to be fully pro-life we must be open to the act of adoption. Be prepared because after watching Rescued you may find yourself longing to bless a parentless child with your loving home!”

Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director, Students for Life of America

“I have never seen so passionately executed an appeal to care for the fatherless as the feature film Rescued. Not since my time in Uganda have I felt so powerfully the urge to drop everything, knock down some walls, and fill our house to overflowing with the precious fatherless. I cannot recommend this excellent film highly enough.

Douglas Bond, Author, The Betrayal, The Crown & Covenant Series

“For too long we have overlooked our responsibility to care for the fatherless. The film Rescued is a powerful message for Christians. Here we are reminded of our duty clearly presented in Scripture to rescue the orphan. I highly recommend this powerful film!”

Dr. Tommy Mitchell, Speaker/Writer/Researcher, Answers in Genesis

Rescued is a fitting title for this moving 2011 documentary. So many orphans across the globe live without hope, sometimes deprived of the basic necessities of life, and often bereft of love. And yet, when Christian parents determine to bring one of these children into their home, they engage in a rescue mission- a mission of mercy. And, in doing so, they reflect the mission of Jesus, who came to rescue us, as poor and unworthy as we were. I am thankful for the work that went into making this film; and I pray it inspires us all to remember not only the needs of the little ones in our midst, but also the wonder of the work of Jesus in bringing us into the family of the Father.”

James McDonald, Pastor/Writer/Speaker, Providence Church, Morton, IL

Rescued is a powerful, beautiful, and practical vision of how the Gospel can and should be brought to life in our day, in our churches, and in our families.”

Dr. George Grant, Pastor, Parish Presbyterian Church & President, King’s Meadow Study Center

“Watching Rescued is a vivid reminder of what J.I. Packer meant when he said that while forgiveness may be what we need most, adoption is our greatest privilege because it’s the gospel blessing that goes above and beyond what we need. God could have merely altered our condition from criminals to friends; but He chose to make us sons and daughters as well – a superfluous blessing that He didn’t even have to bestow to save us, but He wanted to save us with abundant blessings of love. His people demonstrate His love beautifully when we imitate that side of His love, and “Rescued” is a stirring testimony to how brilliantly the gospel is preached in action when Christian families adopt. As a grandparent of four adopted children (and anticipating more), it would be an understatement to say this was a blessing to watch. It was an illustration that put the gospel of Christ in a whole new light. Thank you.
