Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

Oct 18, 2023

Rick Eldridge started out as a music artist and Campus Life director for Youth For Christ in Orlando. So… how did he becoming a movie producer / film director? We dive into this here and also talk about his new movie, NEVER GIVE UP - The Brad Minns Story.

The true story of how twenty-year-old Brad Minns does the impossible in the Men’s Singles Tennis Finals in the 1985 Deaf World Games. In a five-hour match for the ages, Minns somehow comes back from match point in the third set to winning the Gold medal in the fifth set. The match serves as a framework for the story of this inspirational man who became deaf at age three and rose to the height of his sport thanks to God helping him to NEVER GIVE UP.
