What is CFDb?
So who are those people who run CFDb? Are they a big company, Church or a large group of volunteers such as IMDb?
None of these, we are really just three people. A husband/wife team and a great webmaster.
Roger and Annelie Rudlaff are avid Christian film lovers who desire to get the word out about Christian films. Over the years we found out that most people think the only Christian films out there are titles such as Moses, Joseph and Jesus of Nazareth. While those films are great, there is so much more out there and Roger wondered how are people going to know.
So began… The Wayhouse Christian Film Library – a free service to the community where people could come and check out Christian movies/documentaries/cartoons and return them for more. It started off slowly and as we moved to different locations the greatest success was in Roanoke, VA where we even made the front page of the newspaper. It was successful in getting the word out locally, although not successful financially, for obvious reasons.
An unexpected family crisis arose causing us to close up shop and move again – no more Wayhouse but another development came from this… CFDb. It started very slowly in 2008 and in 2011 we formed an LLC company, (Christianfilmdatabase.com, LLC), and began to try and figure out ways so we could spend more time on the database because every film and everything done with the database is all done by Roger or Annelie, except for web issues that come up, including getting the search to work better, which thanks to Bryce, it now works wonderfully!

Bryce Wisekal our webmaster, has a Great Company called, “Foxyhare“, that we highly recommend to anyone who needs help building a Great website, or just looking for a website host, he’s the BEST! Just look at CFDb! He made it all possible on a small budget! Thanks Bryce!
Most people that contact us think we are a big company with a lot of employees and we are believing God that someday soon we will be.
Our goal is for CFDb to be blessed financially so we can dedicate a majority of our time adding and updating more films. Our prayer is for many people to be blessed spiritually as a result of this ministry. Although we do not make the films, we do help people find the appropriate films to help their spiritual needs.
