Welcome to the “i am JOSIAH” Movie Campaign

Never underestimate the broken and discarded because they can become the fiercest warriors

Growing up can be difficult, even more so when facing life with disabilities. Josiah grew up in a typical hardworking family in a small town. He was hearing impaired with 95% hearing loss until he had surgery in his second year of high school in 1982. He met constant bullying until he no longer wished to live. His prayer was, "God take me!". 

At 32, moved to Nashville. An acquaintance of his who worked for WSM radio became his golden ticket to country royalty at places like the Grand Ole Opry and the Ryman, TV tapings, record label parties, and sports events. He hit the country party scene like a whirlwind until an emergency phone call from his mother and a comment from his workaholic boss. Change was coming.

Soon after, Josiah moved to Orlando, FL. Josiah's wild party lifestyle wasn't tempered by the move but enhanced by it. Then, the storm of a lifetime came to him, beginning with the theft of his identity over $20k (a felony that could have meant prison). His home was foreclosed, and he was left homeless and hungry. In ten years, he moved eight times. His life had spiraled out of control; anger and hate were all that was left. His childhood prayer resurfaced: "God take me, I surrender, I am done". He had no idea how close his prayers were to being answered. Those words could have been his last; he fell asleep while driving, and his car went off the road. The miracle that happened during that event changed Josiah's life. God saved his life. He was no longer the same, from abused and broken to a new life and restored—purpose from the pain.


Project Film Production Winter/Spring 2024. 

God has aligned fantastic, talented people to this project. 

The cast is approximately 18+ actors, actresses, and extras (women, men, and youth). JOSIAH, the main character, is portrayed at ages (16, 32, and 45). We are in need of JOSIAH #1 and #3. We need your prayers please. 

"i am JOSIAH" Movie is a project that takes a village. It is more than a project; it is a movement that builds community and long-lasting friendships in Jesus Christ. (People, Businesses, Filmmakers, Cast and Crew).
