EcuFilm to Close

ecufilmNashville, Tenn — United Methodist Communications announced today that EcuFilm, which provides multimedia resources for small groups and churches, will close at the end of 2013.

A ministry of United Methodist Communications, Ecufilm has been a long-time provider of video resources for use in worship, Sunday school, Bible study, retreats, small groups, and other church programs – both for United Methodist churches and other denominations. However, due to the changing marketplace, the service has experienced a decline in sales over the past ten years and is no longer cost-effective.

“The decision to discontinue the service was made after careful deliberation in order to allow us to focus our resources and better serve clients in the ways that they need us the most, through other services we offer as an agency,” said the Rev. Larry Hollon, chief executive of the denomination’s global communications agency.

Videos produced by United Methodist Communications such as RethinkChurch resources and “EcuFilm classics” will continue to be available through the online store at  Throughout December, the remaining stock of DVD resources will be on sale at 25 to 75 percent off the usual price.

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
