Review of “Rogue Saints”

The first film featured at the Texas Christian Film Festival at Bethany Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Houston, Texas was “Rogue Saints.”

“Rogue Saints” tells the tale of two friends (Nick and Dylan) and a legend of a diamond buried under a church baptistry.  With riches in their eyes, these two friends volunteer has maintenance workers at a local church. Nick has a history with this particular church but a recent tragedy as left him jaded and on the outside.  Dylan isn’t a Christian and has many questions about the faith.  (There is a great scene of Nick trying to explain the Trinity and Virgin Birth🙂 ).

Throughout the film, Dylan and Nick are faced with impossible odds, deep questions of belonging and even theodicy. The film shows how even in the toughest moments God seems to show up, even when we least expect it.


Rogue Saints takes a comedic look at church people, church culture and the way God’s love really does change everything.

In the end, the film is heart warming and does show how the community of God can transform even the hardest of hearts.

3 out of 4 stars.

In Christ,
