In 2010 LMR adopted the Joshua Clay family pilot series to assist in development, production and fundraising. Principle photography of a demo was completed in November of 2010 and is currently in post-production, marketing and distribution.
“Joshua Clay The Seer” is an exciting new supernatural adventure series targeting Tweens (8-14 year olds) This TV/web series combines the suspense and intricate storytelling of the hit television show “Lost”, with the unfolding mystery and adventure of a Sherlock Holmes story. At the heart of each of the stories is a spiritual twist that will challenge our viewer’s worldview and stir questions about what lies out there… beyond the world we see with our eyes.
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. Furthermore, 70% of today’s young twenty-somethings- once churched, are now spiritually disengaged after leaving home.
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.
Today’s Tweens spend more money than teenagers – but through their parents. And the world of retail and media are targeting Tweens and cashing in, fueling multi-billion dollar blockbusters filled with aliens, witchcraft and vampires. Never before has there been a greater need to reach a lost generation…

Personal Message from Michael & Shari Lienau about why they are producing this dramatic series:
When these realities of where things are at today struck us – what our own 9 children were facing not too far off in the future, we knew that we had to do something. This is not business as usual, this is personal… This is not religion… It is profoundly personal! 4% of this generation knowing God in a personal way is unacceptable. We cannot bear having our children grow up in a culture where Jesus and what He taught is irrelevant. We must contend for revival and inspire our children to have an authentic relationship with Jesus and the real supernatural power that they have in fellowship with His Holy Spirit today!
We know that the most formative years of a child’s life are before they reach their teenage years. If we don’t act now and do something for this lost generation it will be too late… It is highly personal… we are not only making this movie for our own children but with them… its for them, their friends, our neighbors and the entire generation they are growing up with.
