Meriden, Connecticut: Mobile Film Ministry Takes Christian Movies on Tour

Mobile Film Ministry

Once Bessie Jasinski retires from her job at Philips Electronics next year, the pair plans to take to the road and bring films to parishes and campgrounds across the country. James Jasinski, a 63-year-old former Wallingford police officer who has since retired, said he was called by God to start the ministry, but has received positive feedback from viewers who find it difficult to enjoy more mainstream entertainment with their families.

"They're having a hard time, because the TV is inundated with violence and sex and everything else," he said. "The same with secular movies in the theater - it's hard to find good films nowadays." The story behind the idea traces back more than 30 years to James Jasinski's time on the police force. While checking in at the department one day, he noticed a flyer posted by a Meriden officer about a Christian film he was planning on showing. The Jasinskis turned out, and plans for the movie ministry had been brewing ever since.
