This is your chance to be a part of a film, funded by faith, that reaches a police officer or first responder who is considering ending their own life.

***All donations of $100 or more (unless anonymous) will have their name featured in the movie credits!!  Just a small way of saying thank you for funding this mission by faith!!

Break Every Chain
is a multiple award winning true story written by an active duty Virginia police officer, Chaplain, author and speaker Jonathan Hickory.  The story has been endorsed by Pastor Jonathan Falwell, Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, and so many more.  

The story is now on the verge of being turned into a Christian film by producer Jason Campbell of JC Films.  We need your help to raise funds for film production.  This story has already reached so many police officers, first responders and others who are suffering from deep depression, sadness, post traumatic stress, and suicidal thoughts.  Will you help to reach those who sacrifice so selflessly?

The following is a summary of the story:

"Police officers, firefighters, paramedics, and military members all see the innermost of our dark and fallen world. Jonathan Hickory gives us a veteran police officer’s intimate perspective into the struggle that many of our heroes battle in their hearts.

Drowning in the depths of depression and sadness, burning with anger, and chained down by alcoholism, Jonathan couldn’t do anymore. After the loss of his father as a young boy, facing countless horrific death scenes in the line of duty, and the death of his son, Jonathan turned to the world for answers—finding only darkness. Facing the threat of losing his job as a police officer, the loss of his wife and daughter, and contemplating suicide, Jonathan turns to the only One who can truly save.
This amazing story of grace and the life changing power of Jesus Christ is guaranteed to encourage and inspire."

Update #4- God is on the MOVE!

In less than 2 weeks, Almighty God has raised over $11,000 of the goal funding, $25,000!  I am in constant awe at how He is moving.  At the same time, I am facing extreme spiritual warfare as the enemy has taken notice as well!  Please pray over this project.  Pray with me that this film would be greatly used for the glory of God, and that it would reach MILLIONS of people!  Pray over the script writing, for Jason Campbell as he writes.  Pray for the future of this process, the casting and the production.  

Thank you for your faithful support as we fund this movie by faith!!!!

-Jonathan Hickory

Oh my goodness Lord!! $5000 raised- 20% of goal!

As of today, 4/24/2020, God has raised $5000/$25000 = 20% of goal!  Thank you to all those who have faithfully stepped out with their generosity.

Our only prayer is that God would be greatly glorified through this movie and that He will use it to reach MILLIONS

I’ll be doing a weekly funding update so as not to overwhelm/wear out your feed with this! 

I know this film will be fully funded in God’s timing.  If you would like to help fund this movie by faith, consider another gift in the future and share this ministry.  Remember that all gifts of $100 or more (unless anonymous) will have their name featured in the film credits!

If you want your company or organization name featured in larger print, a gift of $1000 will get your Company name featured in the credits!! (Fictional Example: This film brought to you by We Love Police Officers, LLC)

God Bless you, you are LOVED,
-Jonathan Hickory

Praise God—The power of prayer!

Thank you all for your generous support.  I cannot wait to see the film credits, which will read:


Followed by a list of all those who donated $100 or more!  We wish we could include everyone and that may still happen as well!

We are well on our way with over $3200 raised in just a couple of days.  This shows that the Lord is working here.  This is for HIS glory.

“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts.”
‭‭Zechariah‬ ‭4:6

God bless you, and please share and spread the word about this mission!
