“Behind Church Doors” is feature film adaptation of a fiction novel by Sylvia Brown-Roberts. It is a story of forgiveness and redemption. Set in the Christian church, it is the story of NikkiMac, a single female, who like many Christian women, has a colorful history but knows that her sins were forgiven when she obeyed the gospel of Jesus Christ. Although she’s determined to live a faithful Christian lifestyle, NikkiMac experiences a tug-of-war between the flesh and the Spirit. Sometimes, she doesn’t measure up to what God expects of her, but she gets right back up when she falls. Over time, she may realize that faithful Christian living is not achieved by willpower alone, but by a dependence on God.
Although casting is not complete, "Behind Church Doors" will introduce several fresh, new faces and include cameos from well-known artists.

This is an exciting time in Christian film making. According to advocacy group Faith Driven Consumer, 17% of Americans make purchasing decisions primarily based on their religious beliefs. That includes motion pictures and theater. The key to successful motion pictures is that the motion picture directors pay more attention to their core, or target, audience. Our plan is to emphasize substance over form. Behind Church Doors Productions will make an original, distinctive motion picture that is entertaining and uniquely true to God’s word.
The Christian motion picture market has grown exponentially in recent years, and “Behind Church Doors” deals with some heavy topics, giving the viewer a lighthearted peak into living obediently to the commands of Christ. The movie cuts a wide swath through the Christian cinema market. It combines comedy with spiritual edification with the consequences of our decisions.
The co-executive producing team of Sylvia Brown-Roberts and Tracy L.F. Worley was joined in 2019 by Carlton Howard whose record of production, promotions, and fundraising spans over 30 years and includes the Indiana Black Expo Amateur Boxing Tournament, Corporate Club of Indianapolis, the Center Point Civic Multi Purpose Centre, Power Play Productions Inc., and the Gary Indiana’s Annual Forth of July Festival. He is a philanthropist and has served as Executive Director of “Feed the Need” providing food, medical screening, clothing, entertainment, grooming, and job opportunities.
His business, entertainment, and charitable background is an invaluable asset to Behind Church Doors Productions.
