Media & Film

“What’s in your hand will lead to what’s in your heart” - pastor McManus

City Church’s Media Ministry exists to document, broadcast and draw people towards the supernatural power of God using creative communication methods. We do this through film-making and other creative media. Film and media is not what we do, it’s who we are.

Our vision is to raise up a community of creatives that are passionate about communicating kingdom values and truth to our world through film, photography, graphic design, writing, web development and social media.

Film school

In 2012 Pastor McManus had a dream to start a film school where young people could immerse themselves in a kingdom-centered and spirit-filled environment while learning how to develop their creative expression and communication skills. Learn More.

Creative Nights

Twice a month our Creative teams rally together for “Creative Nights”, An evening of Vision, Inspiration, Collaboration and training. Here, we not only reinforce a sense of community amongst our volunteer teams, but we come together for training, event prep and more. We value empowering collaboration and unity to help our teams grow spiritually and creatively. Creative Nights are open to on lookers and any one wanting to get involved in our Creative Community.

Are you a Filmmaker, actor, or screenwriter? Join a community of Filmmakers and creatives who have a passion for communicating kingdom values through modern day parables (i.e. movies). Refine your skill, gain exposure and be challenged to present the message of Faith in a relevant way.

City Church has produced two Feature-length Films: “Will You Be Ready” and “The Goodlife”. Be on the lookout for the most anticipated "Redemption" premiering on October 30, 2022. The purpose of these films is to provide a bridge for faith to enter the heart of the viewer.
