The host leads viewers to consider filmmaking and story points and the teacher magnifies relevant life-application points using the lens of scripture.

Above all, “Fresh Look” is entertaining! Life-change is possible for viewers because the stories are real and inspiring for a hard-to-reach audience, which largely communicates through stories.

Life-application questions include: “How is the verse relevant to today?” and “What would you change in your life if you could?” Themes include the 3 R’s: Regret, Repentance and Relationships.

Started in 2003, the 168 Library contains hundreds of dramas, comedies, westerns and more.  Gatherings centered on “A Fresh Look” will be suitable for inviting seekers. Everyone loves a good story.
