A New Native American Film to Honor a Former Liberty University Student.
Updated: Jan 5
It was 1989, and I vividly remember a Native American in full traditional clothing speaking from the pulpit my freshman year at Liberty University, he said, “I became a new creation in Jesus.” The students name was Reynard Faber, but everyone on campus just called him ‘Chief’.
Reynard Faber, was a member of the Jicarilla Apache Nation. He told the story how he was born into poverty, abuse, alcoholism and even prejudice from within the white man's boarding school in the late 1960's and early 1970's.
As I listened, I remember thinking how these tragic events and circumstances should have overcome him. At the conclusion of his testimony, he told us how he "accidentally" discovered the remnants of a tattered old Bible. A Bible that changed his life forever.
As you may know, Chief’s story was published into a book ‘Front Runner’ and was featured on many news and faith television networks. This Spring, JCFilms Studios is turning this miracle story into a feature film.
“One of the miracles of this story is how Chief came to Liberty University and the amazing relationship he had with Jerry. Falwell, Sr. I’m excited to tell that story,” explained Jason Campbell, President of JCFilms Studios.
Falwell granted Faber a full scholarship to Liberty with the understand that Faber would preach the Gospel after graduation. Farber has kept that promise as an evangelist to the 150,000 New Mexican Native Americans.
Production is set to begin in April 2022 in New Mexico. For those interested in getting involved please contact Jason Campbell at 304-906-5957 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
