A few years back we began filming on a series of Beyond the Four Walls. We began in Ukraine, where the vision began for Pastor Derek. Here is a look behind the scenes, to whet your appetite for the video series that is coming in the next year or less.
We boldly invaded the city of Kiev and shot on the streets, using the locals as our “extras.” There was very little scripting, Pastor Derek was anointed and the show flowed out of him.
The program is about the vision of taking the church through the streets, into the halls of government, business, education, entertainment, and elsewhere, taking the Kingdom of God to the kingdoms of this earth, just like Jesus.
We filmed at the top of the city.
We filmed in front of their sacred statues, celebrating the overcoming of the harsh past of Ukraine.
We filmed in front of government buildings, talking always about the Gospel of the Kingdom.
We filmed in the heart of the city. Proclaiming the coming of the Gospel of the Kingdom. It was powerful.
We also set up a homemade green screen so that we could do some of the filming in a place where the outside noises were kept to a minimum. That is of course, until the church praise team took off worshiping.
