A Movement of Prayer for the Entertainment Industry

Dear HPN,

As many of you are aware, HPN Program Director, Kelry Kirschenmann had a medical emergency. We are praising God for miraculous recovery and we know that He will bless her health so that she will be stronger than ever! Please join us, praying with thanksgiving for what He's doing in Kelry's amazing life! We all love her so much and know that God's faithfulness is so evident in and through her!

Did you have fun or DID YOU HAVE FUN at our

Higher Love 80's Dance Party!!

Watch Our Highlight Reel

We can't thank you enough for attending our Higher Love 80's Dance Party event on February 18th! Over 140 of you joined us for this celebration of God's love. If you missed it, this joyful night included a wonderful buffet dinner, lively fun, a photo booth, a sweets table, an hysterical emcee - Comedian Kerri Pomarolli, a powerful speaker about God's Love - Myesha Reynolds, a time for one-on-one prayer, and the best 80's dance band in the city for an hour of dancing and music. The night was a beautiful partnership with FPCH and it ROCKED!

Oscars, Oscars, OSCARS

It’s OSCAR Season!!! The Academy Awards is the largest event in the Hollywood Film Industry and we want to be praying! In fact, HPN has an “Oscar’s Prayer Walk” on the Thursday before the awards ceremony, right outside the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland and we walk the red carpet and pray for everyone involved in the event - including the press, nominees, news anchors and security guards. Join us for our Oscars events....

We are BACK with the annual Oscar's Prayer Walk for 2023!

We will gather at the stairs of the Dolby Theater, right on the Oscar's Red Carpet. Come Pray with us!

Thursday March 9th @ 7PM Dolby Theater on the Oscar's Red Carpet


Join us once again at the Mears Center of the FPCH Campus! Co-hosted by The Library of FPCH, we will all watch the Oscars, eat great food, meet new friends and even pray. This night is EXTRA fun when our guests arrive in glamour, bring a few friends, and enjoy the red carpet photo-booth!

Please help us cover the costs for dinner/drinks by purchasing a $10 ticket!

Sunday March 12th at 4:30PM - FPCH + HPN at the Mears Center



Uncompromising Christians

We praise God for Mark Wahlberg and other celebrity Christians who won’t compromise their faith, even with the pressure from other peers who don’t get it. We need to pray for Mark and others, who love God and don’t have a Christian community of co-workers, associates and friends. Let’s pour God’s love, strength, joy and wisdom over Mark, so that he can physically feel the difference without even knowing why!

The Power of Prayer!

We praise God for this great article by a journalist, Gloria Robles, who understands the power of prayer and the destructive negative voices from Christians who talk against people in Media and Entertainment. Please read this article and pass it on. We need more people like this in our Christian circles and we challenge YOU to be one of them: 


Jesus Revolution- A Box Office Hit!

The theatrical film, Jesus Revolution, was a huge success as #1 at the Box Office this past Opening Week-end, showing in 2,475 North American theaters. If you haven’t seen it, be sure to watch Lionsgate's Jesus Revolution from Kingdom Story Company, which took in approx. $15.525 million, significantly over-performing their pre-release estimates for the film which were in the $6-7M range. The Erwin Brothers tell a powerful true story of the start of the Calvary Churches in the 1970s through the Jesus Hippie movement in Southern California! For more info or if you want to join their prayer team, click the link for the details!

Join Their Prayer Team!

Keep praying for Alec Baldwin


Last Friday, New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney's Office dropped the gun enhancement charge -- a crime that would have carried a maximum five-year sentence if convicted -- against Alec Baldwin and the “Rust” armorer Gutierrez-Reed, in the accidental shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins during production. Let's continue to pray for Alec to experience God's peace and hope during this time.



Pray For a Fair Agreement!

Pray for a looming Writers Guild Strike as the WGA and DGA head into talks for contract negotiations with the AMPTP (The Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers). The negotiations begin March 20th and they hope to come to an agreement before the current contract expires on May 1st. Please pray that the Writers Guild and Directors Guild and the Producers will all miraculously come to a fair agreement so that it’s a Win/Win.

The PGA Awards

The Producers Guild of America had their 34th Annual Awards Ceremony this past Saturday and Everything Everywhere All At Once won BEST PICTURE. We ask you to pray for all of the Oscar nominees (below) because most years the PGA Awards foreshadows the Oscars.


Deepest Sympathy and Prayers

Please pray for Ryan Fellows’ family, who have sued the TV network and studios behind “Street Outlaws: Fastest in America,” after Fellows suffered a fatal crash while racing another driver, in August 2022. The wrongful death lawsuit claims the race did not meet “any of the industry safety standards” on a “dusty, weather-beaten, rough asphalt roadway” in a desert outside Las Vegas. Warner Bros. Discovery and Lions Gate Entertainment are among the media corporations named.

Prayers For Bruce Willis and Family

Please pray for iconic actor Bruce Willis and his family. They just announced last month that Bruce has frontotemporal dementia and is having trouble communicating. It’s a brutal disease and we want the Lord to touch Bruce’s heart with love, hope, peace and salvation! Would you join us in praying for him?


Healing Testimony

Listen to this powerful testimony of healing shared by HPN member, producer, author and speaker, Marion Pyle. She shares the journey to healing that she and her husband Russell embarked on after a shocking cancer diagnosis. Share this video with others who you know are believing God for their Healing!

Thank you so much for praying with us this week. Keep all of your favorite actors, directors, writers and composers in your prayers. Whether they know Jesus yet or not, they are Creators made in God’s image and He loves them SO MUCH! Just think - you may be the first person to ever pray for the person you choose to pray for. That’s EXCITING.

With love,

Karen, Kelry and Myesha


New Testament writers do not tell me why God chose to save me. They only tell me to be thankful that He did.”

― J.I. Packer


"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!"

-- 2 Cor. 9:15
