Joey Lawrence stars in a new movie ‘Pardoned by Grace’, being produced by
The Road to Life Church. The crew was filming here in Chesterton, at the
Duneland Chamber of Commerce, last Friday and earlier around town.
The feature film,
based on the true story of how now Pastor Scott Highberger (a former
prisoner) turned himself around in prison, then received an unlikely pardon
so that he could go back into prisons and continue his ministry to others.
Pastor Scott has
now joined with Pastor Dave Gargano at the Road to Life Church in Chesterton
and Michigan City. Services are held every Sunday at 9 and 11 a.m.
Lawrence is best
known for roles in the TV series “Blossom” and “Brotherly Love.” He has also
appeared in dozens of feature films and TV series episodes.
During the filming,
Lawrence met with Nichole Charlene of the Duneland Chamber of Commerce and
they talked of his daughters and he said Chesterton reminded him “of a
Hallmark town and he will definitely love to come back to visit”.
Among those working
to make the project possible are Road to Life Church, Pastor Scott
Highberger, Pastor Dave Gargano, Producer Brandon Riley, Director Kevin
Otto, writer Melissa Stamper and a variety of volunteers.
