The first Christian film heading to theaters in the new year is the true story of missionary Graham Staines who was martyred in India in 1999. Initially titled "Staines," “The Least of These” shares the story leading up to the murders of the Australian Christian missionary and his sons, Philip, 10, and Timothy, 6, who were helping a community of lepers in India.
Featured in the film are Stephen Baldwin ("God's Plan"), Shari Rigby ("October Baby") and Sharman Joshi.

"I know God called me to the 'Staines' movie," Baldwin told The Christian Post in an interview earlier this year where he described the film as an answer to prayer and "empowered by the Holy Spirit."
“Heavenly Deposit” is an upcoming movie directed by Rick Irvin and the film’s writer, longtime actor George Vincent.
《天堂存款》是由Rick Irvin导演，编剧是一位老演员George Vincent。
This Christian movie stars John Savage, Bonnie Hellman, Meredith Thomas and Alisha Seaton as lead characters. Other popular actors who star in "Heavenly Deposit" are Ella Joyce, Peter Jason, Alisa Reyes and Barry Van Dyke.

“Thanks to his father's death when he was a young boy, Peter doesn't believe in God. Fast-forward a few years, and he's a struggling actor who just can't catch a break — until an encounter with the Divine rocks his entire world. A prideful man finds himself carrying the weight of the world until a Divine encounter changes his life and he cannot deny the power of God,” the film’s synopsis reads.
The film earned five Dove Awards for family and faith-friendly ratings.
“‘Heavenly Deposit’ is a personal story based on true events. After experiencing a Divine encounter that changed my life forever, I decided to share it with everyone whenever I could. While sitting in a coffee house, getting my car washed, buying groceries ... literally anywhere. Always, with the intent of leaving them off better than when I met them. And, every time when I finished the response was the same; usually teary-eyed followed by ‘thank you for sharing your powerful story.’ Well, one day I had told a gentleman who ended up being a minister. This minister strongly urged me to turn this story into a film and share it with the world!” Vincent shared in the film’s Indiegogo campaign page of how the movie came about.
Even though Vincent said it “took forever to write the script,” it's finally done and gearing up for a February release.
Another film coming to theaters at the beginning of 2019 is "Run the Race," co-produced by Tim Tebow and his brother, Robby. Following in the footsteps of Christian filmmakers the Kendrick brothers and Erwin brothers, the Tebow brothers are now marking their first feature film with "Run the Race."
The Tebow brothers lent their famous last name and talents to tell the fictional story of two brothers in high school who face trying times as they seek different paths to find a way out of their troubled lives.
Much like Tim's story, "Run the Race" aims to show what's possible when someone "runs to — instead of from — the love of God," the film's synopsis says in part.
"Reeling from his mother's death and his father's abandonment, Zach, an All-State athlete, finds glory on the football field, working to earn a college scholarship and the brothers' ticket out of town. When a devastating injury puts Zach — and his dreams — on the sidelines, David laces up his track cleats to salvage their future and points Zach toward hope."
Tanner Stine ("NCIS," HBO's "Here & Now") stars in the movie as Zach, Evan Hofer ("Kickin' It") as David, Mykelti Williamson ("Fences," "Forrest Gump") as the boys' coach, and Frances Fisher ("Titanic") as their surrogate mother. The supporting cast includes Kristoffer Polaha, Mario Van Peebles and Heisman-winner Eddie George.
