Torchlighters: The John Wesley Story ~ a TOS review Review

Are you looking for new faith-filled movies for your family movie nights? Today I am pleased to share with you Torchlighters: The John Wesley Story from is a family owned company by Lukas Media. The company’s owner and staff firmly believe that God is honored by hard work, good service and quality products.  With a goal of helping spread his message while you spend quality time with your family they seek to honor God in every way.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men

Colossians 3:23-24

With their business philosophy  grounded primarily by two passages found in Colossians they seek to deliver media and entertainment that are gifts from God.

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus,

giving thanks to God the Father through him

Colossians 3:17 Review

Our family was granted the chance to review the Torchlighters: The John Wesley Story over the last six weeks. This is an action-packed 30 minute episode featuring the founder of the Methodist movement, John Wesley.

As a young boy, John Wesley was miraculously saved from his burning family home leading to his mother calling him a "brand picked from the burning", believing he was spared by God for a special purpose.  In the video Wesley is shown trying to live out his special purpose by his own strengths and good works, only to find repeated failure and frustration.

Finally after several years of struggle Wesley is able to embrace his saving grace. However, his message is not welcomed in the established churches of the time. So forced with a decision to make, we learn that John breaks the rules of his time and takes his message to the needy, outcast citizens beyond the church walls.

Special features included on this DVD are:

~ Comprehensive PDF leader guide

~ Reproducible PDF student handouts

~ English and Spanish language and subtitles

~ 55 minute documentary on John Wesley

The Torchlighters series is geared toward youth aged 8-12 and presents the lives of true-life heroes from Christian history. The John Wesley DVD retails for $9.99, a great price to help children see what God can do through a “Torchlighter”.

Torchlighter: well-known and little-known Christian men, women and children who in response to God’s call, dedicated their lives to a life of whole-hearted commitment and passionate service to Jesus.

Our family watched this DVD for the first time together one evening. Since then my youngest daughter, McKenzie {5} has watched the DVD 3 or 4 more times. She loves it and says “it is filled with God’s love”! I can’t argue with that!
Overall, we have enjoyed this series and I hope to add more of the Torchlighter series to our DVD collection. Be sure to check out what my CrewMates thought of this DVD and the other DVD’s being reviewed by clicking the banner below:
