Life as a Mormon missionary isn't what 19-year-old Brandon Allen expected: so many rules and so few successes. Los Angeles is as unrepentant as Sodom and Gomorrah. He's forced to share a small apartment with five young prank-loving missionaries and, to top it off, his first companion, 29-year-old Marcus Dalton, proves to be a harsh mentor. After only one day as a missionary, Allen is ready to hang up his necktie and go home. His point-of-view changes, however, as he begins to see the struggles and sacrifices that the other missionaries endure: Dalton, he soon learns, is fighting a losing battle with cancer. Banks, an African-American missionary, was disowned by his family when he joined the Mormon church. Kinegar, a fifth-generation Latter-Day Saint, finds himself doubting under the intellectual attacks of anti-Mormons. Working and living with these young men, Allen becomes a part of the drama occurring under the everyday surface of missionary life. After only a few intense days, ...Written by
Many things that Elder Allen needs help learning are things that are taught in the the MTC (Missionary Training Center in Provo, UT). It is rather obvious that the character has never been. All missionaries, both Elders and Sisters are required to attend the MTC before being sent to their assigned mission. See more »

She's a very smart girl.
Well, she thinks so.

Gwen Dutcher is credited as "Sexy Mormon Lady." This is not an actual character in the film, but Richard Dutcher's wife. She gets another "crazy credit" in his film Brigham City. See more »
Rising star Mormon auteur/actor Dutcher's breakthrough film "God's Army" tells of a group of Los Angeles based door-to-door religion peddlers. A shoestring indie with obvious low budgetness and inescapable nonsequiturs, the film manages a sense of earnestness as it shows the cell of young male LDS missionaries struggling with issues of faith, converting, healing, and getting lots of doors slammed in their faces. A somewhat interesting and marginally entertaining watch for anyone who ever wondered what's up with those annoying my-religion-is-better-than-your-religion LDS door knockers. (C+)
