THE JESUS FILM PROJECT // JOHN + MELISSA IMMEL

IMMEL Family global partnersJohn and Melissa Immel work with the Film Production team of The JESUS Film Project.  Every eight seconds, somewhere in the world, another person indicates a decision to follow Christ after watching the JESUS film.

Called by some, “one of the best-kept secrets in Christian missions,” mission experts have acclaimed the film as one of the greatest evangelistic tools of all time. Since 1979 more than 200 million men, women and children worldwide have indicated decisions to follow Jesus after viewing the film.  “But how can any single film reach so many people and touch so many lives?”

It is the power of the Word of God in their heart language.

Based on the Gospel of Luke, the “JESUS” film has now been translated into more than 1,160 languages, with new languages being added every month. This allows God’s Word to speak to people in more than 200 countries in languages they know and understand. By God’s grace, it is yielding a spiritual harvest of unprecedented results.

John continues his subtitling and English dubbing responsibilities job as project manager for Following JESUS India. But now he will be on the Computer Generated Animation (CGA) team, working with the Motion Capture (Mocap) 3-D recording system. This system records the actor’s movements in 3-D. Then we add the “skin” and clothes to the characters. The outcome (a 1-2 minute animated film clip) will give the team a chance to see what a project will look like before they start production.  In addition, he has plenty of opportunities to work on short evangelistic films: sets, lighting, and general production.

Melissa is busy, homeschooling their two boys, Isaiah and Noah.
