COLUMBUS CHURCH TACKLES PTSD IN NEW FILM ‘THE TURNING POINT’

Pastor Farnsworth Coleman Sr. laughed when he said he always knew there were good actors in his congregation at New Birth Outreach Church. They are the couples who fight on Saturday and come to the Sun-day service holding hands and smiling while pretending that nothing happened, he said. “They are real good actors,” Cole-man said. Several of his New Birth congregants, including Coleman, have acting roles in a new hourlong film “The Turning Point,” which was produced by the church in association with Creative Minority Entertainment, an independent faith-based production company. The pastor said the congregation showed enthusiasm for the project. There was a full house at the Sunday service when filming took place. The premiere of the film is 7 p.m. March 15 at New Birth, 10107 Veterans Parkway. The event is open to the public, and it is free. DVDs will be for sale, and they’ll later be available on the church website. The story is about post-traumatic stress disorder and how it affects an Army sergeant and his family.
