Alex Kendrick

Alex Kendrick has dedicated his life to serving Jesus Christ and making His truth and love known among the nations through movies, books, speaking, and prayer.

In 2002, Alex founded Sherwood Pictures with the blessing of senior pastor Michael Catt, and began production on their first movie FLYWHEEL with his brother Stephen. Alex wrote, directed, produced, and acted in the film with the help of 60 church volunteers. The DVD went on to sell over a million copies. After an overwhelming response, he partnered with his brother again to write and produce FACING THE GIANTS. Alex once again acted and directed the film, which was picked up and distributed by Provident Films, a branch of Sony Pictures. Facing the Giants grossed over $10 million in box office receipts. The DVD was later released in 56 countries and has sold over 4 million copies. In 2007, Alex and Stephen wrote the screenplay for FIREPROOF, and shot it in Albany with Alex directing and Stephen producing. The film was released in September 2008 and grossed over $33 million at the box office, making it the highest grossing independent film of 2008. Fireproof has since sold over 5 million DVDs. Alex and Stephen then wrote COURAGEOUS in 2010, with Alex once again acting and directing. The film made $34.5 million at the box office before becoming the #1 DVD release in America. The DVD is now in 76 countries. More than 15,000 churches have used the movies for ministry and outreach in their communities. In 2014, Alex co-wrote and directed WAR ROOM. The film was released theatrically in August of 2015 and became the #1 movie at the box office. In 2018, he and his brother wrote the screenplay for OVERCOMER, with Alex acting and directing and Stephen producing. The film was released theatrically in 2019 and debuted at #3 at the box office, eventually bringing in $35 million. It was also #1 in Brazil, and gave Alex his third consecutive A+ Ci nemascore as a director, which is extremely rare. To date, Alex has received over 30 awards for his work. Alex and Stephen served as Executive Producers of the 2018 FamilyLife project, LIKE ARROWS. In 2021, the Kendrick Brothers released two films: COURAGEOUS Legacy, and SHOW ME THE FATHER, their first feature-length documentary, for which he served as an executive producer and writer. Alex is an executive producer, co-writer, and plays the role of Shawn in LIFEMARK, which opened in theaters in September 2022. Their exciting new film, THE FORGE focuses on biblical discipleship and is scheduled for release on August 23, 2024.

Alex and his wife, Christina, live in Albany, Ga. with their six children and are active members at Sherwood Church.

Flywheelby Alex Kendrick


by Alex Kendrick
From the makers of Overcomer and Fireproof comes a novel that asks: what's the most important thing in your life?

Jay Austin did what it took to get ahead and make the quick sell at work. Problem was--the more successful he was, the more he traded what really mattered. His integrity. His relationship with his wife. His time with his son.

He was chasing things that had no eternal significance. It wasn't until God slowly unraveled everything that he saw how empty his life had become.

Now it will take a courageous heart and a saving grace for Jay to finally turn his drive into a desire for a more authentic life with God as well as with his wife and son.

In a world filled with cheap imitations that distract us from God's higher plans, Flywheel is a powerful parable for all who hunger to live an authentic life.
