Honored at eight international film festivals as either an invited film or the Best Documentary winner (Riverside International Film Festival, International Film Festival South Africa, International Christian Film Festival, Gideon Media Arts Conference and Film Festival, National Outreach Convention Film Festival, San Diego Christian Film Festival, Transforming Stories International Film Festival and the Redemptive Film Festival). You've never seen a spiritual memoir like this. Like many who came of age in the 1960s, Greg Laurie was on a search for the meaning of life.

Great story of overcoming adversity for God's glory
Lost Boy is a fantastic story about how God used Pastor Greg Laurie to proclaim the gospel to millions despite personal hardship and tragedy. It's also one of the best documentaries about the 1960's "Jesus Movement" that emerged from the hippie subculture in Southern California.
Pat Summerall, longtime NFL announcer, narrates the story of Greg and his mother Charlene, a Marilyn Monroe look-alike who battled alcoholism and was married and divorced 7 times throughout her life.
Despite getting into drugs himself, Greg eventually turned to God and found his calling in preaching, teaching and pointing other young people to heaven.
The film also documents the tragic death of Greg's son, Christopher, in an automobile accident in 2008.
Lost Boy delivers an inspiring message of hope and deliverance. I loved it.
