Ragamuffin Rich Mullins Movie

It’s an honor that would have made Rich Mullins blush.

The GMA (Gospel Music Association) will induct Rich Mullins, writer of “Awesome God,” into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame at their inaugural GMA Honors Ceremony to be held on Tuesday, April 29th at Lipscomb University’s Allen Arena. The event celebrates those being inducted into the GMA Gospel Music Hall of Fame as well as individuals and organizations that are impacting our culture globally both past and present. Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant are the first performers announced for the ceremony, with more to be added.

The GMA honor comes on the heels of the Color Green Films Ragamuffin movie inspired by the life and legacy of Mullins whose tour launched earlier this year and is currently screening across the nation.

The movie has been on a tour of single-night showings across the U.S. since January, due to wrap up at the end of May. A full list of remaining venues is available here. Here is a short trailer:

Mullins left a legacy of great songs — including Our God is an Awesome God — but this will always be my personal favorite:

Another one was the powerful song Creed, a declaration of faith and doctrine which we featured here.

I realize that I may not get to see this until it is released on video, but I would not want to miss this story.

  1. I’m proud to say that our church (the bridge, Markham) hosted the first ever Canadian showing earlier this month, and is talking about doing again. The movie was FANTASTIC!!! Truly showed that being a Christian didn’t mean you had to be perfect and showed the struggles that Rich went through to balance his faith, his career, and his life. If you get a chance, you MUST see it!!!

    • I heard about some people today who drove from Toronto area to Pittsburgh to see it presumably because they didn’t think they’d see it in Canada.

      Needless to say, let me know if and when you hear of any other Canadian dates.

  2. The movie was pretty good, a little long, in need of some additional editing imho, but especially for the Rich Mullins fan it’s very special. The documentary that is available now on DVD is, imho, even better. You can get it here.
