- One dollar out of every eight invested in America is invested in Faith-based projects. A Quote from WorldNet Daily today, Friday, August 32, 2007.
- On August 3, 2007 Motive Marketing talked about the Faith Market. The number 1 & 2 best selling books were Faith-based stories. Christian book sales are expected to grow 15% this year. 20-years ago there was only a handful of Christian radio stations. Today there are 1,600. Movie Guide Magazine reports the number of religious themed films has skyrocketed over the past decade. The Dove Foundation reports that of the 2,380 films made recently, G-rated films yielded the highest gross profit $94 million on average while R rated films earned only $11 million on average. G-rated films generated eight times more gros profit than R rated films Motive Marketing states the film/video product mirroring the Christian music industry, is a booming market with more than $1 billion in annual sales. THE FAITH AND FAMILY MARKET IS A POTENTIAL GOLDMINE for films that can satisfy its demand for high quality entertainment and high moral values.
- Faith based films have grown. This is why 20th Century Fox created Fox Faith. Why Lions Gate has a new division for Faith based films. Why The Weinstein Company has jumped into the faith-based film market.

- In late July The Dove Foundation stated: Hollywood is just beginning to grasp the fact that the appetite for the faith and family audience has barely been tapped. The future is bright, as long s the pot at the end of the rainbow (box Office) is full of gold and the way to insure that relies on families who will continue to support these wholesome films at the theaters and by bringing them into your homes on DVD.
