The faith-based film is directed by Steve Race (The Beach House) and written and produced by pastor, Galley Molina featuring real events from his own troubled past.

Producer and writer Galley Molina states, “Sometimes God needs to use extreme measures to deal with extreme circumstances. This movie is truly about the power of God in a man’s life. I really wanted to make a film that a non-believer could enjoy and yet be ministered to while at the same time a believer could watch and say ‘Amen.’”

I’m in Love with a Church Girl depicts a unique story centered on a retired high-level drug trafficker Miles Montego (Ja Rule), whose life has gone legitimate yet he remains loyal to his tight knit circle of friends and former colleagues in the business. When he meets Vanessa (Adrienne Bailon), a church girl in every sense of the word, he must decide whether to hold onto his old ways or let them go. Throughout the film Miles and Vanessa are tested to their last ounce of faith and strength in God and each other.

Other cast members include Michael Madsen (24, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill), Martin Kove (Karate Kid, Rambo), Vincent Pastore (Sopranos, Goodfellas), Michael Rivera (Fighting, It’s Complicated), David Jean Thomas (Fight Club, The Soloist), and T-Bone (The Fighting Temptations, Never Back Down).
