At The Cross

Bishop Mack must face a dark secret that will destroy his family and perfect reputation as long-time pastor of a multi-cultural church. In the midst of a shabby campaign led by Elder Mack to drive more youth to church, Bishop Mack takes Elder Jimmy and the staff on a rocky journey through opposition, criticism, and love to make a tough decision on who will take over the church in changing times.

Director Statement

Bishop Mack and Elder Jimmy represent two generations of religious leaders who have been forced to face personal issues, secrets, and criticism while helping others cope with modern challenges. At the Cross shows how togetherness in the church can transition from a place of criticism to a sanctuary for healing through forgiveness, love, giving, compassion, and empathy.
