Asbury University alumna Andrea Nasfell wrote “The Resurrection of Gavin Stone,” a Christian comedy-drama movie that was released nationwide Jan. 20. The film examines faith, life and redemption through a washed-up former child star who is cast as Jesus in a church play. Nasfell, the screenwriter for 2014’s “Mom’s Night Out” as well as several made-for-TV movies, has maintained a connection to Asbury since graduating in 1995, by teaching an online screenwriting class.
