I (Joel Kramer) am the son of an oil company worker and as a result was raised in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. After graduating from college with a BA degree in communications I moved to the 95% Mormon town of Brigham City, Utah where I got married, began a family, and started Living Hope Ministries. The vision was to focus on the medium of film to both educate Christians about Mormonism and produce tools that would more effectively equip Christians in their witness to Mormons.
This vision began to be realized with the release of the first four Living Hope Ministry films, DNA vs. The Book of Mormon (03), Called to Be Free (04), The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon (05) and Lifting the Veil of Polygamy (07). The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon proved to be the most effective tool in bringing Mormons to Christ because it not only taught the falsehood of the Book of Mormon, but emphasized the truth of the Bible. To teach Mormons what is true about the Bible became my passion and so after living in Brigham City for 15 years, I moved my family and Living Hope Ministries from Utah to Jerusalem, Israel in 2007. Due to circumstances particular to working out of Israel the name of the ministry was changed to SourceFlix and our vision of what we would cover here broadened beyond but not excluding Mormonism.
Nathan Lundquist also made the move to Jerusalem and since bringing his talents in film-making alongside mine, SourceFlix has produced from Israel three more films: The Jesus Tomb Unmasked (2009), Jericho Unearthed (2009) and The Bible vs. Joseph Smith (2010).
Today, Nathan & Whitney Lundquist live in the same Jerusalem apartment with myself, my wife Cathy, and our three kids, Barry, Petra and Rachel Kramer. Our home church in the States is the Lighthouse church. Lighthouse graciously handles all the distribution of DVDs for SourceFlix and Living Hope Ministries. They are also actively involved in ministering to Mormons, educating Christians about Mormonism, and setting up showings of SourceFlix films.
