Divided the Movie (2010)

Is Age Segregation Ministry Multiplying or Dividing the church Divided follows filmmaker Philip Leclerc on a revealing journey as he seeks answers to what has happened to today’s Christian youth. Philip speaks to kids in local youth groups, interviews national youth ministry leaders, and finally meets with a growing number of pastors and elders who are abandoning the age-segregated Sunday school and youth ministry model and embracing instead the perfect ministry model God’s Word prescribes.

    The first time I watched this movie I really felt that “what I always knew, was now not what I ever knew. Everything kind of shifted within me as I started really doing some more research of my own on it. This was my first awakening in separating the gospel of Jesus Christ from methods and programs. It was the first time I saw how I gave so much of my parental stewardship away, or relying on the flesh to raise my kids. I always thought I wasn’t doing it, but now could see very clear. After watching this, we put the family back in order with my husband at the top of our family, not the church, nor the people. It was the first time we saw order didn’t exist in our home and it had to be fixed.

    This movie was hard to watch, because I could see for the first time the attacks on my home, and I didn’t even know it. After losing one child to the world spiritually, and almost another one physically, the pain it tears at you causes you to really look at your family, and to either sit and do nothing but what has always been done in hopes your other children can avoid it, or you will do everything you can to make sure it doesn’t happen again. This movie is the best place to look for answers- it causes you to turn to scriptures and to look for God’s patterns in them in building a righteous biblical family that is protected.

    I give this a 10 star rating. It put us on the correct path for our family, with my husband teaching my children and leading out correctly, then using the programs to be an extension if needed.

    I was told about this movie by a friend after sharing my feelings about being ‘church programmed out’. This movie was a huge wake up call and confirmed feelings that I had about how church programs have very subtley replaced parental stewardship. Wonderfully made film, and the interviews gave me so much insight on how to be a better leader in the home. I was awakened to my divine stewardship and the need to not be so reliant on programs to teach my children about the gospel of Christ. After watching this I committed myself to opening our home to those youth who are struggling or alone, instead of relying on clergy and church leaders to rescue them. I highly recommend that all parents from all religions watch this!
