Christian Advocate Dr. Ted Baehr Promotes Building Bridges to
Hollywood at World Congress of Families IX in Salt Lake City
Christian advocate Dr. Ted Baehr, founder and chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® ministry (CFTVC), promoted building bridges to Hollywood and the mass media at the World Congress of Families IX at the Grand American Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah last week.
“The World Congress of Families grand event in Salt Lake City was a perfect opportunity to build a bridge to the Hollywood entertainment industry,” Dr. Baehr said.
The commission organized two forums or panels, moderated by Dr. Baehr, on Hollywood, the mass media and communicating Christian, family values at the conference.
The panels helped attendees learn how to communicate their message in a dramatic powerful way to millions of people. They also helped attendees learn how to teach their children and students to be culture wise and media wise so the children keep their parents’ biblical faith and values.
In addition, Dr. Baehr hosted premieres of two new faith-based movies coming out next year, THE YOUNG MESSIAH and GOD’S NOT DEAD 2.
“These are two of the best Christian movies released in the last 30 years,” Dr. Baehr said.
“The screenings illustrated that Hollywood wants to reach the faith and values audience with big motion pictures. They also demonstrated the effectiveness of transforming the culture by redeeming the media through the work of CFTVC and its Movieguide® outlet (www.movieguide.org) and several social media websites.”
Dr. Baehr concluded, “The responses to the screenings were incredible. The people who came to the World Congress were very supportive.”
Author of “The Culture-Wise Family” and “How To Succeed in Hollywood (Without Losing Your Soul),” Dr. Baehr is chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission® (CFTVC) and its family guide to movies and entertainment, Movieguide® (www.movieguide.org).
Now in their 30th year, CFTVC and Movieguide® are the largest, longest-running international, non-profit ministry dedicated to “redeeming the values of the entertainment industry by influencing industry executives and by informing and equipping the public about the influence of the entertainment media.”
Movieguide® is not just a movie review service for families and Christian viewers. It also shows filmmakers how to make their movies more entertaining, more family-friendly, and more morally and spiritually inspiring and uplifting.
Movieguide®’s Annual Faith & Values Awards Gala honors the best, most family-friendly movies and television programs honoring God and inspiring audiences with messages of faith, hope, goodness, justice, redemption, forgiveness, and true divine love. At the Awards, Dr. Baehr presents highlights from Movieguide®’s Annual Report to the Entertainment Industry, a comprehensive financial analysis of the movie business showing what kinds of movies and what kinds of movie content moviegoers favor the most with their hard-earned money.
