Jermaine Sullivan, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from Atlanta, recently taught singer-songwriter David Archuleta a new skill: step-dancing.

In video posted to Instagram Aug. 21, Sullivan, who is one of the six Latter-day Saints featured in an upcoming documentary called "Meet the Mormons," leads Archuleta in a step routine, involving rhythmic footwork and hand claps, at a screening of the film.

At the time the documentary was filmed, Sullivan was a bishop; he is now serving as president of the Atlanta Georgia Stake.

David Archuleta also played in role in the documentary. He performs a song titled "Glorious," by Stephanie Mabey, in the film.

Elder David A. Bednar, a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, announced the release of "Meet the Mormons" this week.

The feature-length documentary produced by the LDS Church will hit theaters Oct. 10.

The film was financed by the LDS Church, but the proceeds will be donated to charity.

Megan Marsden Christensen writes for the Faith and Family sections. She recently graduated from BYU-Idaho with a bachelor's degree in communication.

I am so looking forward to this new film! I love real life stories and love to see how other LDS people live around the world. I love learning about how life goes in other countries. I just watched The Gabby Douglas story of the first black youth to take a gold metal in gymnastics. I love how her whole family pulled together for her. (I added this to show you I love to learn about other people's life stories.) To date one of the most inspiring stories I've read is Corrie Tenboom in The Hiding Place.
