It doesn't take much money to make profitable films about characters who praise Jesus. The Sherwood Baptist Church of Albany, GA has figured out how to make millions.
Sherwood's first full-length feature stars writer-producer-director Alex Kendrick as a crooked car dealer who decides to become Christian and mend his ways.
DVD unit sales: 350,000

Sherwood's second feature tells the story of a failing high school football coach who turns to God to help save his team (and his life).
Box office: $10.2 million
Kirk Cameron played a troubled firefighter in Sherwood's biggest third feature. A book based on the film sold 4 million copies.
Box office: $33.5 million
The company's most recent film follows the stories of four police officers as they struggle with their faith through various crises.
Budget: $2 million
Box office: $16.2 million through Oct. 9.
