Stephen Curry Boldly Shares his Faith
Best known for his prowess on the court, the professional basketball player is moving into Christian media.
Stephen Curry is a very busy man right now, first and foremost with his day job: the all-star guard and his Golden State Warriors teammates are in the midst of the NBA finals (they're down three games to two to the Toronto Raptors in the best of seven series). There is also a documentary out right now on Facebook about Curry. It's called Stephen vs. The Game and the latest episode focuses on his Christian faith.
Curry grew up in a family of Believers, but says he didn't make his faith his own until eighth grade when he responded to an altar call. In the Facebook program, he adds it is now the center of his life, a "personal relationship" and the foundation for him in everything.
"It's the part that always keeps me focused on what I need to do when it comes to my family, when it comes to my job, when it comes to how I treat other people."
Last year, Curry started a production company - Unanimous Media - as the vehicle to help him branch out from basketball into the faith-based content arena. Not one to let grass grow under his feet, he is already executive producer of the current hit film Breakthrough from Christian producer DeVon Franklin and he is filling the same role on a documentary out later this month from Christian filmmaker Brian Ivie - Emanuel; that film focuses on the horrific 2015 mass shooting at a black church in Charleston, SC and the forgiveness that was extended afterwards to the racist gunman by the victims' family members.
Emanuel will be a limited two-day engagement, playing in theaters nationwide only June 17th and 19th. You can find out where it is in your area via this link. If you'd like to catch Curry's Facebook documentary - Christian Film Blog highly recommends it - you can do so through this link. And if you haven't seen Breakthrough yet, go watch it before it finishes its theatrical run, which is likely just a week or two away.
