It is a story of how one person can change the world when seen through heaven’s eyes. Its a journey throughout history with stories and music that filled the room with colorful set design, theater-style lighting, and media imagery. There were choirs, vocalists, ensembles and dancers in costume that celebrated the season with style.
Charis Second Year student Adam Stone directed his own Hope Theatre Company and produced Godspell which was critically acclaimed across the UK. He has worked alongside Judi Dench and Anthony Hopkins among others, has performed in London's West End and even sung in Nashville, TN!
This is Adam's first solo script writing experience and is so grateful to Daniel Amstutz and the Team for this opportunity.
Daniel Amstutz, the director of Charis Artistic Productions, was in numerous operas and intended to make a career of opera and classical singing, but God had another idea. He has been described by many as "a father" in the modern worship movement, helping to pioneer and mentor many who continue to have tremendous impact on the Body of Christ and modern culture as well. Daniel is a published songwriter and recording artist and has served as a pastor and teacher as well as worship leader.
Images from God With Us
This is an original production, with script and music written by Robert and Elizabeth Muren of Norway. A thirty-five-member cast reenacted the powerful story of Abraham’s encounter with God and His promise that all nations of the earth would be blessed.
The event then brings to a musical finale the redemption of the Word becoming flesh — “God with Us”.
As the founders of Covenant Ministries, Elizabeth and Robert Muren share a vision to reach the world with the Word of God through the creative mediums of music, stage, and film. They are the writers and composers of The Covenant, a live stage musical that recounts the remarkable story of the Jewish people, from Abraham through Biblical and modern history. The Covenant has toured throughout Israel, performing in Hebrew for large Israeli audiences, and has toured on stage in 13 countries throughout the world. The DVD is now sold around the world and has been translated into 13 languages.
President and founder Andrew Wommack's wife, Jamie, had a lead role in this production!
