A Heart That Forgives: The Movie

Everyone Has A Story

A Heart that Forgives is a riveting story that will tug at your heart strings. The film takes you on an emotional journey of two foster brothers that choose separate paths. Malcolm follows his father's footsteps and begins pastoring a small church while Silk follows a path of darkness attempting redemption at his own conveniance. A Heart that Forgives starring Charles Malik Whitfield, Carl Payne, Irma P. Hall, Nikki Dixon, Pilar Sanders and Kelly O'neil Jackson.

A Heart That Forgives was inspired by the song of the same name written by award winning Gospel artist Kevin LeVar 


We believe the stage is set for Christian filmmakers to create motion pictures that explicitly tell stories of faith and God's love. Movies like "God Is Not Dead" and "The War Room" have broken through the barrier separating faith and film. Like never before, people are wanting to see movies that inspire hope, love and redemption. According to Joe Boyd, founder and president of Rebel Pilgrim Productions;

"Americans are asking for more positive, family-friendly entertainment" 


In addition, Todd Burpo, author of the No. 1 New York Times bestseller “Heaven is for Real,” which premiered as a feature film in April 2014, states; 

("....people always have a hunger for God, and are always looking for fulfillment. I think people see these films and say, ‘Hey, I need help. I need hope.")


Most recently "The War Room" a story about how a seemingly perfect family overcomes their challenges through faith in God, captured the number 1 revenue position its opening weekend, beating “Straight Outta Compton" August 28, 2015 {IMDb}. Quite frankly, the fact that Hollywood is starting to take notice is a nice by-product.

We invite you to take this journey with us.

Ken Jenkins

Writer/Executive Producer

A native of the Bronx, NY, Ken has always had a passion for writing. He has written 2 books, “Playing Fields” and “One Foot Out The Door –the other on a banana peel!” While hanging out with Gospel artist Kevin LeVar one evening, Kevin played his song “A Heart That Forgives” and shortly afterwards Ken was inspired to write a story about forgiveness. That one story turned into two stories, then three. Those three stories became a screenplay that was originally titled “Untold Forgiveness” and with the blessing of Kevin Levar later became “A Heart That Forgives- The Movie”. This is Ken’s first feature film.
