Scripture Comes to Life
Dramatic presentations transport audiences back to 1st Century Israel
for a firsthand experience of Jesus through the portrayals of biblical personages, giving audiences a visceral sense of what it may have felt like to be present
for the events of Jesus birth, life, death and Resurrection.
Retreats deepen participants' faith and relationship with Jesus through contemplating biblical figures and the journey of faith they took in response to encountering Jesus. Performances bring Jesus and his teachings alive in a way that sparks thoughtful and lively conversation. Retreats include discussion of socio-political customs and culture during Jesus' time and contemplation of scripture.
