“This video shares an answer to this question that goes beyond one college in one town while reminding us that reaching a generation of Americans who are disconnected from Christ and His Church starts with doing something somewhere.”

The video was filmed in Richmond, Kentucky, where Census data shows 61% of residents are religiously unaffilated. Video producers asked college students and local residents probing questions about faith, church, and Jesus Christ.
