Film Screening and Q&A
with Bishop Carlton Pearson
Tuesday, June 5th, 7PM
COME SUNDAY is a movie based on true events, following the story of internationally-renowned pastor Carlton Pearson who — experiencing a crisis of faith — risks his church, family, and future when he questions church doctrine and finds himself branded a modern-day heretic.
The film is an extraordinary story of faith, with a broader theme of someone questioning who they are and their place in the world, going through a transition where their own community challenges their choices, and coming to an understanding of their own identity.
The film was inspired by a story broadcast on public radio show This American Life with Ira Glass, and examines one man’s modern struggle with faith and redemption.
COME SUNDAY stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Condola Rashad, Jason Segel, Martin Sheen, Lakeith Stanfield, and Danny Glover. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2018.

About Carlton Pearson
Carlton Pearson was one of the most beloved Pentecostal Christian personalities of his generation. Thousands would fill arenas and churches to hear him sing, preach and inspire. But things dramatically changed when he stood in his mega church pulpit to proclaim a new doctrine, one that declared that because of Christ, no soul will spend eternity in hell. This controversial doctrine polarized faith communities all over the world. Bishop Pearson wasn’t prepared for the rejection and stones aimed at him. He lost everything: his influence, his church, his friends and finances. In a short period of time, one of the church’s most beloved went from hero to zero seemingly overnight and became the most prominently titled heretic of his generation.
After spending the last two decades rebuilding and rebooting his life and ministry, Carlton Pearson has emerged with a new purpose aimed to help others examine and reconsider what they believe, why they believe it, and how those beliefs add to or subtract from the quality of their lives. He believes that life’s breakdowns can be turned into breakthroughs. And that experience is not only what happens to us, but what we do with what happens to us and not to just go with the flow, but grow with the flow, even when it becomes a flood!
He is developing a multi-cultural and radically inclusive “Metacostal” online cyber community reaching thousands that emphasizes expanded consciousness, radically inclusive love and Self-Actualization (the development of the personal Self and Soul, beyond impersonations and role-playing). Their mission is to help create and inspire comprehensive global, planetary and cosmic peace on every level of human experience and expression; and their purpose is to help create and provide people with both techniques and emotional technologies to both discover and recover their divine selves, bridging our humanity to our divinity. This community is about renewing and re-knowing who we are as not only human beings looking for spiritual experiences, but spirits having individual as well as collective earthly encounters. Navigating and negotiating through these encounters calls on and calls up what he calls the God gene, genius and/or genie (energy) resident in all of us; that life doesn’t just happen to us, but through us and as us.
