appeared at the Chinese Christian Alliance Church, speaking of his faith,

only did I have a fun time that night, I think I've found me-self a new favorite
God Bless you Doug Jones ... and good luck with your acting career.
that I am a christian, and have been since the age of 6, sharing my
faith at the appropriate time and place is always a joy for me.
becoming an actor, I get invitations like this all the time, especially
to youth groups or bigger youth rallys, crusades, etc. I belong to
an organization called Media
Fellowship International, which is a christian ministry for people
have special events to invite media people to, and monthly in-home
Bible study groups in larger cities all across the U.S. A few of us
actor types from the group get asked to travel together to various
towns across America to speak (usually sharing our own personal story
... I'm not much of a sermon preacher) at youth events.
this is something that makes this whole crazy showbiz thing make some
sense to me. Some of my warmest memories are from events like these.
Yes, we go there as Hollywood celebrities, but it ends up being about
sharing a faith in God.
