Vision for the Project
The basic concept of this endeavor was placed on the hearts of Sam Gipp and Jonathan Marshall during the King James Bible 400th Anniversary Conference at Hope Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio in April 2011. Their mutual desire was to present the Bible version issue in a unique way using cinematography.
Who is Sam Gipp?
Dr. Sam Gipp is a former pastor, an evangelist, teacher, author and Bible conference speaker. He has the unique ability to digest large amounts of information and then present it in an analytical, understandable, format. His humorous, informative and forceful preaching style make him popular with all ages and keeps him in demand as a Revivalist and Bible conference speaker. He has authored numerous books on the subject of the King James Bible and other versions. His materials are available through Daystar Publishing.
Who is Justin Doty?
Justin was raised in a good Christian home with his parents working for over 20 years as the youth leaders at his home church, Treasure Valley Baptist Church in Meridian, ID. He received Christ as his Saviour November 7, 1990, felt the call to preach in high school, and graduated with a bachelor of divinity degree from his church's Bible Institute in 2010. God gave him a wonderful wife, Amber, who grew up in the church as well, and a beautiful little girl named Abigail. He went to Christian schools from elementary through graduation where he was the only one in the school using a King James Bible other than those who attended from his church. On many occasions he had to defend his stance on the King James issue to students and teachers. He believes it would have been extremely beneficial to have had something like this project available to him.
