Speaker may transform Lions’ lives

Kari Kennedy

Guest speaker for this Thursday’s noon meeting of the Minden Lions Club will be Kari Kennedy, associate director of digital strategies for the Jesus Film Project. She will be sharing how the film has changed and is still transforming lives around the world in a way no other film has ever done.

The 2009 movie “Avatar” is currently the highest growing movie of all time. When it debuted in 2009, the estimated viewership for that year was almost 140 million. The film cost more than $200 million to make. Contrast that with this: In 1979 another film was made – “the Jesus Film.” This movie is about the life of Jesus, taken from the Gospel of Luke. In 2009 dollars, it cost only $20 million to make. In 2021, the Jesus Film had over 750 million viewings – and there is no charge to view it.

This life-changing film is now available in over 2,000 languages and has reached people in more than 220 countries.

Kari is a native of Bossier City and a graduate of LSU, where she previously served on staff for 19 years.

Kari was invited and will be introduced Thursday by Lion Ronnie Veitch.
