"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose."

The Film

Story

Dinosaur Heart is a short documentary following Treffen Rexius and his family whose life was turned upside down after receiving devastating news at the doctor’s office. Being a completely happy and seemingly healthy 10-month-old baby, there was no reason to suspect anything was wrong, until Dr. Carter uttered those words that will forever live in their hearts, “your child is in congestive heart failure.”

Even in the overshadow of a parents’ worst nightmare, losing a child, we see God’s faithfulness and provision every step of the way. It’s a harrowing and inspiring story of faith and perseverance though some of life’s toughest moments, while seeing the peace and comfort of God overflow in the middle of them.

Mission

When walking through heartbreak and despair it’s easy to feel forgotten by God, our mission is to demonstrate His perfect love even through the most difficult circumstances. Jesus himself stated in John 16:33, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

God never promised a life free of worries, and walking with Jesus doesn’t automatically mean that you’ll be immune from them, but His promise to never leave or forsake His people is one that we can trust in.

Request a screening

Our new film Dinosaur Heart is now available for screenings, and YOU can bring it to your community.

The aim of a screening event for Dinosaur Heart is for guests to leave feeling strengthened and inspired in the provision and sovereignty of God. Because we are finite creatures, we can’t possibly see the entirety of any circumstance in front of us, and our lack of knowledge and understanding is scary and causes distrust in the Creator. However, Romans 8:28 assures us that no matter how perplexing or mystifying our situation is, “that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.”

Goals

  • First and foremost, to bring glory to God
  • Educate attendees on possible reasons God allows suffering and pain
  • Provide resources to those hurting by connecting them with people who can help
  • Help to instill confidence in believers that God has not forgotten or left them

Format

A Dinosaur Heart screening works well in many different formats, ex. Men’s Night, Women’s Night, Youth Night, Grief Share Ministry Night, Testimony Night, ect. The film itself from start to finish is 24 minutes followed by a brief testimony and/or discussion time.
