SIDE BY SIDE PRODUCTIONS
Side-by-Side Productions emerged from a heartfelt aspiration to impart biblical truths to adolescents and young adults. The idea behind these productions initialized in 2021 as Frances began to recognize the plight of faithful teenagers within single-parent households who yearned for spiritual growth but were being bombarded by worldviews conflicting with God’s wisdom found in Scripture.
As the production process has developed since November 2021, our interviews have only magnified the reality of the pressures from conflicting worldviews that oppose God’s Word in the lives of teens and young adults. Our prayer is that Side by Side Productions will confront those unbiblical views with the truths of Scripture so teens and young adults begin to view relationships through the eyes of the One who created them for relationship. While 16-24 year olds are the target audience, we hope that anyone who watches these productions will be encouraged. We look forward to seeing how He will be glorified through the truths conveyed in these productions!
Statement of Faith
We agree with and hold to the Statement of Faith and Distinctives of Grace Community Church of Sun Valley, CA under the leadership of Dr. John MacArthur.
Side by Side Productions seeks to come alongside the body of Christ for the purpose of edification through God-glorifying films that reflect biblical truths about relationships and encourage and exhort believers to live for Him in whatever season of life the Lord has given right now.
Behind the Name
The name Side by Side Productions is derived from Philippians 1:27 – “Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel” (ESV).
*Out of a humble submission to obey 1 Timothy 2:12 that women not teach or exercise authority, we frequently seek the counsel and accountability of our church leadership and interviewees to seek wisdom and ensure biblical accuracy in our productions.
