Over the last 80 years there has been a dramatic decline in Church engagement. Today less than 4% of today’s “Bridger” generation, those born after 1985 - are seeking an active relationship with the God of the Bible.1 Furthermore, 70% of today’s young twenty-somethings- once churched, are now spiritually disengaged after leaving home.2
This decline has created a huge spiritual void in today’s youth, evidenced by boredom, detachment, self hatred and rebellion.
What is filling this void? This same generation and their families are filling their spiritual vacuum with a fascination for the dark powers of the supernatural.

WHY THE JOSHUA CLAY SERIES?
The Joshua Clay series is designed to show audiences everywhere the scriptural side of the supernatural - rarely portrayed in films or television. Our mandate is to reveal the invisible realm from the scriptures with a spirit of technical excellence and a high entertainment value.
Showing ordinary people doing extraordinary exploits, JOSHUA CLAY will open up conversation about God - His love, power, and desire for us to encounter a life of supernatural adventure, mystery and intimacy.
After establishing the world and characters of Joshua Clay, each season will be a thrill ride through hard hitting, real-world topics and justice issues and how God’s love and power can transform and equip a generation to live a life expecting “signs and wonders.”
The first episode is an origin story of the Clay family and how through a series of strange events they begin a journey of faith, and eventually forgiveness, that will change their lives forever.
