Jordan began his filmmaking career in college, where he studied Theatre and Mass Communications at College of the Ozarks in Missouri. After working in production on hundreds of commercial and informational videos for several local and Fortune 500 companies, Jordan returned to his hometown of Osceola, Wisconsin… unprepared for the reality he’d find.
He discovered that drug and alcohol addiction was taking a shocking toll on his hometown, where his mother is a schoolteacher and his father the pastor of an evangelical church. Many of the victims of this addiction epidemic, Jordan learned, attended his father's church. As he became more and more outraged about the tragedy of addiction and the seeming indifference of the legal system, he knew that he needed to put his filmmaking skills to use to bring awareness and change.
Church of Felons is Jordan's first feature-length film. Since its completion in late 2016, thousands have attended sold-out screenings at film festivals, churches, and community centers, followed by emotional discussions about the addiction crisis. The majority of the film’s gross income founded the basis of a grassroots addiction recovery fund for Polk County residents. Jordan's goal is to change our country's unforgiving policies toward addiction and the addicted, believing that everyone deserves a second chance.
