Divine Influencer exclusively on Pure Flix

 Watch Divine Influencer exclusively on Pure Flix starting September 15th! 

#DivineInfluencerMIN #MomentumInfluencerNetwork 

 “Divine Influencer” is such a timely movie as the world of social media expands at a rapid pace. The message of this film is a reflection on how easy it is to live for the likes, the shares and the comments instead of living our lives for God or to serve others.

Cast List

Directed by Shari Rigby

Produced by Shawn Boskie

Lara Silva, Olivia (The Chosen)

Jason Burkey, Ryan (FEARLESS FAITH)

Jesse Metcalfe, Andrew (GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, ON A WING AND A PRAYER)

Micah Lynn Hanson, Tara (OVERCOMER)

Rebecca Koon, Flora

Joseph Curtis Callender, Charles

When an entitled influencer loses everything, she must humbly trust God to understand what the meaning of true influence is. Desperate, she takes a job at a homeless shelter only so she has a place to lay her head and quickly realizes the joy and purpose that comes from serving others.

Many thanks to Pure Flix for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Cassandra’s Review- Down and out with just her own ego and basically completely ignoring the importance of life, the main character has a turning point and a come to Jesus moment with the help of a budding romance and humiliation. It is a lighthearted romance with a side of humor and a lot of faith.

A great reminder that we all need to focus on the bigger picture.
