Red Pearl Mission, born out of Jarred Coates' heart for youth, will be holding film clubs in local public schools inspiring youth to use their God Given talents to express themselves through film.
film principles and life skills are learned while creating moving and impactful short films and corresponding study guides in order to help lead people to Jesus. Our main purpose is to serve men, women, and youth by sharing with them Scripture and Christian values. Our message to them is to value themselves as children of God and sharing his love with others.
Our short films and study guides are targeted to those incarcerated and at-risk youth. However, the message is universal and can be a source of encouragement, spiritual growth, and restoration for all.
