He has met and toured with artists such as John Mayer, Counting Crows, and James Taylor and currently plays his soulful music nationwide at Dynamic Catholic’s Passion & Purpose Live Events.

What we can learn from JPII’s Letter to Artists

Part of Our Truth, Beauty, and Goodness Series

The Church’s rich tradition in support of the arts is well known, but in today’s film landscape, many young adults are left wondering if we should watch movies at all. How can we avoid mindlessly consuming film and start to appreciate film through the lens of Faith? How can we be intentional about our choice of films to watch? How do we honestly evaluate films in light of Faith?

Before you swear off all films but the Fireproof series and G-rated kids movies – before you go on your next Netflix binge, consider attending our next Theology on Tap.

About our Speaker


The turning point for Jake Kelly came in high school when a friend of his wanted to make a series instructional videos about martial arts. According to Jake, “this time in my life, turning on a camera to tell a story became something interesting and cool.” He worked in the TV Production department at his high school and pursued an education in TV & Film Production. After a stint at the University of Memphis, he was seeking more from his college education. At the age of 20, months before he converted to Catholicism, he discovered John Paul the Great Catholic University in California in a book given to him by a friend. Excited about their film program, he enrolled in JPGCU and has been working and studying in film ever since. At Theology on Tap he’ll put his 12 years of education and experience to work for us. For more about Jake and his top 10 favorite movies, check out the series he did for the Catholic Young Adult Ministry blog at http://cyamemphis.org/blog/10-favorite-films-part-i/.
