Show Me The Father

More resources based on the movie’s themes

You Saw the Movie, Now You Want More Tools.

Everyone has a unique father story. Whether positive or painful, it’s always personal and can deeply affect the core of our identity and direction of our lives. In the movie, Show Me The Father, this is brought to life in a powerful way, which is why we were so blessed to work alongside The Kendrick Brothers in the making of the film. Now, through our Fatherhood CoMission partners, we can give you access to many other resources to help you further explore the themes of the film within your home, small group or church.

The Fatherhood CoMission is comprised of more than 150 partners. These are ministries, authors, counselors and content creators who can help you in various ways. You can search through our partner database here and find someone with targeted expertise. Give it a try.
