Meet Our Speaker
Shervin Youssefian harbored a deep passion for cinema from an early age. As a teenager, he immersed himself in movies for hours on end, dreaming of one day becoming a filmmaker himself. After graduating from the University of Northridge’s Film School and having won multiple awards for his short films, he seemed well on his way to become a full-fledged Hollywood filmmaker, but God had other plans.
Growing up in a traditional Armenian family, Shervin attended church solely on Easter, steering clear of the Christianity due to cultural fears ingrained over multiple generations. It wasn't until his late 20s, that Shervin’s world was unexpectedly rocked when he had a personal "road to Damascus" moment, and caught a glimpse of Jesus’ unconditional and very real love.
This personal encounter spurred him on a journey of exploration. Delving into the Bible, he cautiously tested the waters, aware of his parents' warnings that religion could be a trap, leading to brainwashing and a loss of identity.
Joining a group of believers who gathered weekly for tennis and breakfast, Shervin found a community that mirrored the peace he felt in his initial experience with Jesus—an experience unlike any other. This newfound joy was indescribable and could never be replaced by anything the world had to offer, not even Hollywood!
Despite the unmistakable calling from a higher purpose, Shervin grappled with the possible implications of following Jesus. Would he need to abandon his dreams of making movies and heading to Hollywood?
Shervin is excited to share more at camp about how God would eventually use his passion for storytelling to create a faith-based film that would be distributed on Netflix and worldwide.
Shervin lives in Tujunga, California with his wife Arsine and his three daughters. Shervin continues to balance his time between being a Youth Pastor and making commercials and films. He also serves on the young adult committee and as an elder at Christ Armenian Church (CAC) in La Crescenta, CA. Shervin loves to play tennis, having coffee with friends and discussing movies and shows with other cinephiles.
