Add Director Biography
Director Statement

Nick Lindsay directed “I Will Not Fear” as his senior thesis at Southern Adventist University. Early on in development, Nick’s personal experience crafted the theme of the film. When an injury side-lined him at the peak of his team’s winning season, he found that his own strength was not enough. This parallel between our spiritual and physical journey attracted Nick to Ed’s story because Just like training for an Ironman race, we must pursue God daily. Yet in the end, only God’s grace can carry us across the finish line.
