Celebrity Dad Stephen Baldwin on Fatherhood and Faith - Page 2
By Paulette Cohn
Can you talk about your work evangelizing the youth of the nation?
Stephen Baldwin: The name of the ministry now has changed. It is called the Antioch Ministries, and an aspect of it now is the AsSalt Tour, which is our extreme sports tour. We are getting ready to do a couple of events later this year. We are actually gearing up to take the tour over to the troops internationally [Bagdad]. We are in a conversation right now about doing that.
The two thrusts of the Antioch Ministries right now are the AsSalt Tour with the extreme sports outreach to the kids, and a new thing we have started which is called Now More Than Ever, which is a motivation to bring the gospel to our men and women in uniform. It is also a campaign to teach the younger generation why Now More Than Ever we need to be supporting our troops and showing them the same respect that we would show a fireman or a police officer. These people need our help just as much as anybody else. They really stand in the way of harm far more than any other people.
What else do you have coming up?
Stephen Baldwin: On July 7, I started a faith-based film project called "Power & Pride" with Eric Roberts. I play a politician who goes through a very dramatic challenge in his life and it forces him to look at who he is as a man of faith.
I am getting ready to fly to Nashville tomorrow to have a meeting about directing a film about the life of a famous preacher by the name of Sam Jones. It would be my directorial debut for a feature film.
