04 Nov David A.R. White on Chasing Your God-Given Dream
You know him as Pastor Dave from the highly successful movie, God’s Not Dead and its sequel God’s Not Dead 2. With a witty charm powered by the belief that God has a plan in every situation, David A.R. White’s real-life optimism isn’t too far removed from the character he plays.
White has made a career of playing like-able everymen in his 25 years of acting. But like any actor plying their craft in Hollywood, the road to stardom can sometimes include a series of pot-holed side streets along the way. For White, this was certainly the case. From early success on a hit TV series to a string of forgettable commercials, he persevered through many dry years to eventually co-found Pure Flix, the Christian movie studio that has given us the aforementioned God’s Not Dead movies as well as Do You Believe, Woodlawn, and the just released I’m Not Ashamed.
