This is a true story. It begins in 1847, a few short years before the American Civil War, when a young, abolitionist preacher named Adam Crooks answered the call to plant a new Wesleyan Methodist church in the slave state of North Carolina. His words would rattle a community, his determination would spark a church mission and his bravery would inspire generations to come. Now, for the first time on film, the story of Adam Crooks, a log church named Freedom's Hill, and the North Carolina Wesleyan's who carry on his legacy today.
