Episode 04 – Interview with Brett Varvel
From his early aspirations of screen acting as a child to directing The War Within and beyond, Brett Varvel describes the call God has placed on his heart to boldly proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ through film.
Brett has been making movies since he was a teenager. In 2008 he directed and starred in The Board, and God used the creation of this film to call Brett into full-time ministry. God gave him a vision to create a non-profit film production company. In 2010 he was able to see that vision come to life by starting House of Grace Films. His most recent feature “The War Within” was a big winner at the 2014 Christian Worldview Film Festival and is available in Christian bookstores and online. Brett now embarks on his next feature film entitled, “Disciples in the Moonlight,” set to be in production in 2016.
Brett’s most passionate and comfortable in the Director’s chair, but also loves to write, produce, and act in films as well. He is an Emmy award winning director and a two-time David Letterman Scholarship winner. Brett’s ambition and passion in life is to share the precious gospel of Christ through film.
He resides in Indianapolis with his wife Christina and their two children.
