For many years our students have prayerfully constructed a musical using contemporary Christian music and a contextualized drama, to tell God’s story. They not only help write the drama but also the choreography, dance, signing, and video, all to enhance the telling of God’s story. Each year we begin with a theme and work together to determine the direction we sense God is leading us. Often the issues we cover are ones we’re experiencing ourselves. I try to go to several of the places we will be traveling to in late March, early April. This helps us to gather the necessary information to help us craft the musical in the language of the places we will share with; however, this is not always easy as we share in such a variety of places. This year is no exception as we will go from inner city to rural areas and suburbs. We take that challenge seriously and have confidence in God’s purpose and ability to work all things together for good (Romans 8:32).
We are excited to share with each place God has for us this year. May the Lord direct our paths as we seek to glorify His name.
