Faith Happens is a 2009 Christian film directed by Rick Garside.[1] Garside, who has created many successful films over the last 20+ years, collaborated with singer Pat Boone to make the film after noticing a growing debate regarding the need for churches to have a film featuring what it is like to be part of a church community.[2] Many of Faith Happens' scenes were shot in the Los Angeles area, but they also filmed in a Kenyan refugee camp, town and National Park.[3]
