Celebrating our 16th Annual MFI Praise Breakfast!
"Shining His Light in the Industry"
On September 27th, 2014 at The Beverly Hilton, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast and Christian fellowship at what has become an annual tradition for many in Hollywood. Once again, our host was Rick Eldridge.
Dr. Alvin McKinney opened our morning with a saxophone solo of the National Anthem and Josh Cobia led us in a time of worship. Pastor Bob Rieth invited Susie Wehba to receive MFI's Ambassador's Award on behalf of this year's recipient, actor and singer Anne Jeffreys Sterling, who was ill and unable to attend.
Our Keynote Speaker, and President of Life Without Limits, Nick Vujicic left us all very inspired and encouraged in the Lord.
A very special thanks to our event committee, event sponsors and table hosts. DVDs of the Praise Breakfast will be available soon. Pre-order today $15.00

An important arm of MFI has always been our MST (Media Support Team) that travels to natural disasters and events to support the media.
This is the need our MFI MST has met in past years.
We've been on location in past years to support the Media covering such tragic events as the Oklahoma City bombing, Columbine, Virginia Tech, Katrina, and 9/11 in New York City and Washington DC as well as the Atlanta Olympic Bombing.
MFI recently spent two weeks the Oso, Washington Landslide Disaster. Click here for updates and more photos.
Our MFI Media New Testament is a great gift for your friends and loved ones! Order
Along with The New Testament, you will read testimonies of those in the entertainment business who have given their lives to God,
the Director. And as you'll read in their stories, they sometimes fail, they know that to find our place in the story, we must read - and meditate on - and live out His script, The Bible.
"We have the privilege of playing a role in God's larger story and when we keep our eyes focused on that, we will learn to become servants in His kingdom, promoting His message of love and peace through our lives." - Bob Yerkes, Award willing Professional Stuntman and Stunt Coordinator.
