A Man Called Jon

Film Description:

A Man Called Jon – Sometimes being different is when God uses us the most

A light-hearted dramedy about Pastor Jon Terrell Carson’s (Christian Heep-Steps of Faith) unusual style of worship. Jon’s church is very traditional and is not accustomed to outbursts during service. One day after embarrassing the church along with his family, Senior Pastor Stannum (Larry Jack Dotson-Bernie) decides to reach out to the Bishop requesting that Jon be assigned to a church more suited to his style of praise.

Jon and his family find themselves at an African American Church, where he is confronted by Associate Pastor Dickens, (Mathew Greer-Mad Money) who later informs him that he was sent to the wrong church due to a mix-up in paperwork. The Church’s deaconess, Robyn Harris (Sharice Henry Chasi-Hiding in Plain Sight) becomes an ally trying to keep Jon at her church.

But church mother Sadie Johnson (Irma P. Hall-Big Mama from the Soul food movie) mistakes Jon for a Jehovah’s witness and chases him from her home. Jon is moved to his third church where he again struggles to fit in. Will Jon be able to control his celebration or will he be moved for a fourth time?

Release Date: (DVD) TBA!

    Great movie. The music is fantastic . And the message sobering. Real Christians worship in the capacity God’s gift bestow.

    I wasn’t sure just HOW offended I should be from this movie. From the beginning of saying or should I say implying that the kind of behavior the character Jon was displaying was only implemented in a black church and then him sitting down with the board and from that perception then he was being put out for acting “black”. Then to get to a black church and they kicked the pastor out for not preaching the way that they wanted him to. Last time I checked that if God had a pastor preach on one particular topic for year then as long as it is governed by God then you stay there and don’t move until God tells you to move. All in all it was a very hard movie to swallow and not sure where or what people were trying to depict. I do understand the pretense of it coming from Shirley Caesar’s narrator of shouting Jon however THAT wasn’t an issue of race it was simply how Jon worshipped. This one took it somewhere different. Definitely would not recommend it
