We were given the task to produce an "evergreen" commercial (non date/event specific) for our men's ministry here at Gateway. In pre-production, we developed a script based almost entirely off various Biblical passages that circled around the ministries tagline and mission statement "Gateway Men Seek God First."

Being located in the DFW metroplex, we wanted to portray both the wild, untamed, nature and the cool, put-together sides of masculinity - essentially the metaphorical Fort Worth and Dallas that live in every man.
I had a ton of fun shooting this thing and working through the edit with the very talented, Matthew Krause.
Hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoyed creating.

The first man was of the earth, made of dust. (1 Cor 15:47)
But you have been raised to new life. (Colossians 3:1)
So, think about the things above, not the things below. (Colossians 3:2)
The Kingdom of Heaven, not this empire of dust.
