Preachers on Movies


Technicolor Jesus is a podcast about movies and ministry for pastors, preachers, and Sunday school teachers. Hosts, Matt Gaventa and Adam Hearlson, choose movies from across the history of film and discuss how these movies might connect to the coming Sunday scripture from the Revised Common Lectionary. Technicolor Jesus is a podcast for those who recognize the power of film to inspire our theological imaginations.


Matt Gaventa and Adam Hearlson are two film school dropouts who rebounded into ministry. It's a good thing they did, because they are better preachers than they are filmmakers. They met in seminary over a heated discussion about the merits of David Fincher. Matt is the pastor of Amherst Presbyterian Church in Amherst, VA. Adam is the Assistant Professor of Preaching and Worship and Director of Wilson Chapel at Andover Newton Theological School.
