While many films focus on outlandish extremes or make believe, it is refreshing to know that films like “Irreplaceable” are made, by Focus on the Family, to help change the world and bring light to real issues that we face on a daily basis – both directly and indirectly.
May 6, 2014 “Irreplaceable” will showcase for a one night event in theaters nationwide. The message behind “Irreplaceable” is centered around God’s vision of family. Unfortunately, when culture moves away from God’s design, the people suffer however when we accept God’s plan we as a society prosper.
“Irreplaceable” is a film that breaks down the superficial barriers and reveals the truth behind the ever changing people of the world we live in today, while reinforcing the importance and need for God’s design.
The phenomenal film features interviews with experts including Carey Casey, CEO of The National Center for Fathering; Rebekah Lyons, Author; Rev. Sam Rodriguez, President of The National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference; and Tim Sisarich, Host of Irreplaceable and former Executive Director of Focus on the Family, New Zealand and others. It’s not just another film making claims and quoting statistics, it presents experts who have the research and knowledge to back their claims and observations on society.
It’s more than a film it’s the truth underlying our society. “Irreplaceable” is the definition of what our values should be – simple, to the point and of course - irreplaceable.

The original JESUS film has transformed millions of lives in many of the most remote areas of the globe. Since its theatrical release in 1979, the original JESUS film, re-mastered and re-titled The JESUS Film in honor of its 35th anniversary, has become the most-watched movie in history.
The JESUS Film has paved the way for biblical films and has broke and continues to break records – deemed as the “Most Translated Film” in history, inspired over 200 million people to become followers of Christ and is available in more than 1,200 languages.
“Unlike other religious films, which contain graphic violence or do not adhere to scripture, The JESUS Film script is taken directly from the Bible and shown in a cinematic style suitable for all ages,” said Dr. Erick Schenkel, the executive director of the Jesus Film Project. “The new greatly enhanced video and sound quality elevates the emotional viewing experience of this 35-year-old film to a new level, making it fresh and appealing to a generation that may not be aware of who Jesus is.”
While other films try to break barriers, The JESUS Film is a timeless classic that has changed the world and the lives of many.
