On one side of 34-year-old Anthony Dever’s stage production company are clients like Guns N’ Roses, Alice in Chains, and Dixie Chicks. On the other side of the company, named DPS Inc, are renowned Christian worship music teams such as Jesus Culture and Hillsong.

“We really didn’t know what it was going to actually turn out to be,” said Dever, who attends Southern California-based Saddleback Church, led by Pastor Rick Warren. “Honestly, we just decided to shoot a behind-the-scenes type documentary and see which way the Lord wanted to take this… Read More

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
