“Matters of identity are crucial to us as believers and image bearers of God. Both who we are and who we allow to define us have emerged as the most pressing questions in our world today. I’m thrilled that my friends Alex and Stephen Kendrick have written and created OVERCOMER—for the identity crisis we’re seeing in our streets, our churches, our schools, our homes, and our workplaces. Using the truths of Scripture, OVERCOMER tells the story of who we are in Christ. I highly encourage all to see it in theaters.”
Dr. Tony Evans
OVERCOMER shows the incredible impact a transformational coach can have on their own family, their athletes and the community!”
Jeff Martin, Executive Director of Ministry Advancement, Fellowship of Christian Athletes
OVERCOMER is incredible! It shoots right through the heart of one of the biggest challenges in our culture: Identity, ‘Who am I?’ It’s entertaining, challenging, will make you laugh and cry, and most of all it helps you discover or rediscover who you are in Christ.”
Mark Merrill, President, Family First, All Pro Dads
“Who are you? OVERCOMER powerfully, truthfully, and even humorously helps us answer this question about our real identity. This is the Kendrick Brothers’ best movie yet! I highly recommend encouraging your children’s ministry volunteers and church family to see this movie!”

"Wow! OVERCOMER is the Kendrick Brothers’ best project yet. Yes, it's about cross-country running, but more importantly, it clearly and effectively shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Run for God gives it a whole-hearted stamp of approval and we hope you will too.”

OVERCOMER hits a central issue in marriages, families, church and culture - Identity. When we find our Identity in Christ, we don’t look for it in other places.”
Dr. Gary Chapman, Author, 5 Love Languages
OVERCOMER is a movie every woman (young and old) should see. Not only does the film address a major issue for women in our culture (Identity, who am I?), but it models so beautifully what a Godly wife and marriage look like. Throw in other themes like family, humor, hope, faith, challenges, mentoring, and it’s an all-around incredible film!”
Susan Merrill, IMom Director, Author
OVERCOMER is an amazing movie that reminds us how a coach can make a difference in the lives of others by showing the love of Jesus. It’s a must-see movie for everyone in any family. And it’s great for coaches and athletes of any sport.”
Charlie Weatherbie, Former Head Football Coach, US Naval Academy, Metro Director Southwest Florida Fellowship of Christian Athletes
“The Kendricks have created another great film that hits the bulls eye for cultural change: IDENTITY. OVERCOMER will deeply impact our nation for the good. A culture, family, and next-generation game changer.”
Dr. David Ferguson, Executive Director,
“Without a doubt, it is the best Christian film I have ever seen! Alex and Stephen Kendrick have captured present-day cultural and societal realities through this story while addressing identity, forgiveness, and reconciliation. Don’t miss this opportunity … OVERCOMER will touch your soul and demand a response.”
Barry Sneed, Executive Director, Association of Churches, Christian Care Ministry
“OVERCOMER is a great representation and reminder that regardless of your start in life or physical abilities, God has an amazing plan for you. It is through unlikely situations He makes the impossible happen. I’ve seen this in my own life and praise Him for it!”

OVERCOMER is another wonderful movie from the Kendrick Brothers. This movie touches so many aspects of life, providing opportunities for deeper conversations regarding family, faith, forgiveness, and the impact of our decisions. I can’t wait to invite our church to a day at the movies that will launch group discussions.”
Pastor Adrian S. Taylor, Spring Hill Missionary Baptist Church, Gainesville
OVERCOMER captures the realities of several seeking souls that find the truth of His message along their individual and collective journeys. Any viewer will find a character that they can relate to and learn from. Highly recommend to all.”
Dan Wood,"Daily Amazed," NCCAA Executive Director
“There is just something about the power of story. It engages, disarms, and draws people to a place to see how it intersects with their own story. OVERCOMER takes you on a journey of redemption and reminds all of us where true identity and significance is actually found. Many in our community will use this film as a bridge for conversation and impact; for our friends to see how their challenges are the perfect place for God to show up and do what only He can do.”
Chad Caddell, Teaching Pastor, First Church of Christ, Burlington
“The value of a godly mentor in the life of a young man or woman can’t be overstated. We love the Kendrick Brothers’ new movie, OVERCOMER, and how its story is a wonderful example of the heart behind Trail Life USA.”
Mark Hancock, CEO Trail Life USA
OVERCOMER caused deep emotion in me: forgiveness, redemption, and overcoming life’s greatest challenges. A must see film!”
Jeffrey Haglund, Lead Missional Strategist, Florida North Central Baptist Association
"Using the sport of running as a metaphor, OVERCOMER reminds us that disciplined living and a strong sense of self alongside extensive training and positive coaching can lead to peak performance in life’s biggest races. Most importantly, the film is a mile marker on life’s journey that reads: “You are not your failures, and they cannot change who God created you to be. You are a winner!”
Dr. Kimberly Clay, Founder and CEO of Play Like A Girl
