Award Winning Actor and Filmmaker Speaks for Georgia Agape

Join us on Thursday, September 26 for our annual Celebration Banquet! Our keynote speaker is actor and filmmaker Jeff Rose.

Jeff Rose is a professional actor and filmmaker who was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia. After honing his craft in theatre in the United States and Europe, Jeff got his first major role on network TV in the early 1990s starring opposite Caroll O'Connor in a popular episode of "In the Heat of the Night". Hundreds of credits later, Jeff is best known for his recurring roles on television shows like "Drop Dead Diva", "Army Wives", and "Teen Wolf". Film fans know Jeff from movies such as "Woodlawn", "A Question of Faith", "Killing Reagan", and most recently as Isaac, the owner of Christian Chicken, in Kevin Hart's hit comedy "Night School".

Look for Jeff in theaters this year in lead roles in two more faith-based movies, "My Brother's Keeper" and "Redeemed", opposite Keisha Knight Pulliam and TC Stallings.

Jeff helps to nurture young talent as an entertainment coach. He continues to do the same for his son, Brody, who played young Bart Millard in the highly acclaimed and successful feature film, "I Can Only Imagine".
