Film Synopsis:

Drama based on Alyene Porter’s novel about family life in a small Texas town during the 1950s.

“This thoroughly enjoyable film, set in the 1950’s in Texas, is a touching look (based on Alyene Porter’s book of the same name) into one year in the life of a pastor’s family. If you have ever wondered what these homeland missionaries are really all about, this movie will give you an appreciation for the challenge of this kind of life. Alyene describes her home as “a place where love lived”, a description of her life as a pastor’s kid portrayed here with care.”

“Edwin Porter (Robert Pine), a Methodist minister for over seventy years, is sent (by his bishop) to a little church in the little town of Sterling, TX. The church is in financial trouble, and Porter is called there to try to save it. The move is sudden, and is complicated by the fact that Porter’s wife (Georgia Engel) and eight children are all very comfortable in the large, successful church they have been serving in Dallas. The story of their arrival in Sterling, meeting the church matriarch Missy B, the banker Jack Murphy (Jerry Haynes) and the challenge at hand is warm, funny, and inspirational.”

    Our church has a ROKU channel, 316TV. Would be able to air the movie Papa Was a Preacher?

    This would probably fall under the CVLI license – http://www.christianfilmdatabase.com/up-coming-films/church-movie-license/
