Mark your calendars for October 18 and make it a date night to the theater! I’m in Love with a Church Girl premieres that day, and I can’t wait to see what looks like a thought-provoking and faith-filled flick! (P.S. TobyMac is in it!)
Check out the trailer:
Cars. Good looks. Mansions. Money. Women. Miles Montego has it all. Including a past. He was king of the streets as a high-level drug trafficker, and although he has tried to move on, the DEA isn’t convinced. Miles is still rolling with his old friends and colleagues, and the feds are certain he has not fully retired from his criminal past. When Miles meets Vanessa Leon, a woman who is different than every other woman he’s met, he is drawn to her beauty and her faith. She is a “church girl” in every sense of the word. Increasingly, he is torn between a life that he knows and a love that he feels. As Vanessa experiences his lavish lifestyle, mobster-type friends, gun play, and encounters with past women, Vanessa must reconcile her faith in God and her growing love for Miles. Both are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other. God continues to chip away at Miles through struggles from his past, having to live up to his reputation, feelings of unworthiness, the death of his mother, federal charges, his friends being indicted, the strain on his relationship with Vanessa, almost losing her in a near-fatal car accident, and finally the spiritual breakdown that brings him on his knees to face God one-on-one.
I’m in Love with a Church Girl is a powerful, inspiring story of a love between a man and a woman, a gift of second chances, and a family at home and in church that never stops praying and believing.

I’m excited to see this. I’m promoting *Grace Unplugged* on my site. All the new Christian films coming out have me hyped! Go God!!!
It looks like some of the overall themes are godly and going to be great having in a theater, but I’m concerned that this will encourage even more nice Christian girls to participate in “missionary dating”. That was the comment my 15-year-old daughter said after watching the preview. While God can definitely use godly men and women as an avenue to change their boyfriends/girlfriends, in most cases it goes the other way, and the ungodly person pulls the godly person down into a life of sin and walking away from God.
I guess I do have concerns about that message being portrayed here. If Vanessa is such a godly woman, why is she letting herself start dating someone who is not? Or someone she isn’t even sure of his spiritual life?
That goes against all that my husband and I have taught our daughters about dating and courtship – because the Scriptures are pretty clear about getting involved in a relationship like that with someone who isn’t a strong follower of Christ.
Other than that, the movie looks decent. 🙂
