The Heart of Christmas

What happens when God brings people from all over the world to collaborate on a creative project that will change lives?

Find out this December with the extraordinary production called The Heart of Christmas, brought to you by Charis Artistic Productions.

 Charis Artistic Productions was formed to incubate and produce theater and musical drama birthed by Charis Bible College. Directors Elizabeth and Robert Muren, of Norway, have joined forces with Adam Stone, a British performer and Charis graduate, under the leadership of Daniel Amstutz, the Dean of Worship and Arts at Charis.

Unlike last year’s dinner-theater variety show, this year’s musical is a story within a story, within a story. This story—based on Henry Van Dyke’s 1895 tale The Story of the Other Wise Man—comes to life and shows the true heart of Christmas. This production is just the first of many that are sure to come out of Charis Artistic Productions. The singers, dancers, and actors come from the student body—specifically from the Third-Year Creative Arts School—as well as friends of Charis.

Charis’s Creative Arts School allows second-year graduates of Charis to continue developing their abilities to communicate the Gospel by being given industry-standard training in acting, voice, and dance. It also provides leadership opportunities to disciple and inspire others in the creative arts. 

The Heart of Christmas will run December 11-13: Friday, December 11, at 7 p.m.; Saturday, December 12, at 1 and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, December 13, at 4 p.m. For tickets, please go to

 Also, save the dates—March 17-19, 2016—for God with Us. This original production, with script and music written by Robert and Elizabeth Muren, reenacts the powerful story of God’s promise to Abraham to bless all nations of the earth. This event culminates in a musical finale celebrating the redemption of the Word becoming flesh. Go to to find out more!
