a reminder of christian roots in North Africa
The Heritage Project is eight 30-minute stories (four stories in 2017 and four in 2018) from the first five centuries after Christ walked the earth. It’s about people whose influence on Christianity is still seen today! This docu-drama will show stories of people who set a high standard, sacrificing for Jesus Christ under persecution as the Roman empire fell apart. This all took place in North Africa! Often Islamic societies give the impression to their people that everyone there has always been Muslim, and within their religious rules they cannot convert. It’s not possible. These faith stories are lost to the local culture. We must tell them or they won’t hear how far God’s love will go.
Highlighting the Heritage of the Early Church
Cyprian, Victor, Tertullian, Perpetua and Felicitas, Scillitan Martyrs, Antony, Quodvultdeus, and Augustine — originating in Algeria, Libya, and Tunisia emphatically and historically show a vibrant Christian community — before Islam was even a thought. Their HERITAGE is Christianity!
With this project, we are striving to be as historically accurate as possible, from the languages used, to the costuming, to the locations. We have permission to shoot at locations such as Terra Mitica (previously owned by Paramount Pictures), a theme park that has historically accurate zones of Ancient Rome, Greece, and Egypt. We also will be shooting in historic sites throughout Europe, including Roman ruins and living history museums.
Of course, we could not do this project without your support. Please consider joining us in prayer throughout the production and completion of this project through 2018. We also are actively raising financial support to make this project a reality. If you would like to join The Heritage Project team, click the button below to donate!
