must begin by giving thanks and praise to my heavenly Father and to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Without God in my life, none of this would have been possible, but because I am connected to the true vine, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13(NASB).
I was not alone in this endeavor as God encamped around me an excellent team of counselors and workers who collaborated with me in the birthing of this ministry called “Heavenly Productions, Inc.” The most single thing I’ve learned is securing a covering around my ministry. Heavenly Productions is blessed with two groups, a board of directors who serves as counselors, and an executive board of trusted staff workers who performs all the work. The Board of directors is a group of godly counselors who are all senior pastors and the executive board is a group of professional trusted staff workers who has a heart for the ministry. Proverbs 19:20 tells us, “Listen to counsel and accept discipline, that you may be wise the rest of your days”(NASB). The selection process of choosing counselors and trusted staff workers was a challenging process. Because of my relationship with God and a lot of secretly time devoted to prayer and fasting, God has revealed and put together a great team of counselors and staff workers for Heavenly Productions, and for that, I am grateful.
The main purpose for plays is to glorify God, and in the process, to help reach the unsaved and encourage and strengthen the saints, cast, choir, and those who profess Christ to be their personal Lord and Savior. Through plays, God has allowed me to minister to souls and most importantly to myself!
Every since I could remember, I was told countless number of times that I was going to preach. Many still think that I am running away from God and have missed my calling, but if they stop to listen, I am preaching. My life is a sermon, and walking through life’s journey that has been ordained by God since the beginning of time, I have a story to tell! God has chosen me through plays to reach the world around me.
Why plays? It’s like a sermon you can visually see. I choose to write plays because, first of all, this is what God has gifted me to do, and secondly, people need to see themselves being portrayed. Heavenly Productions cause the unsaved to think, “Wow, I need to get saved” and causes those who are really not right with Christ to check their walk. Nonetheless, the plays are taken from a realistic standpoint and portray the relationships between the Trinity (God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) and human beings.
Heavenly Productions opens and ends all meetings and rehearsals with prayer, and because of this and other elements, members of the organization feel that during these productions they experience an abundance of spiritual growth. The above noted purposes are all to fulfill the most important one—the glorification of God.
Heavenly Productions will cease to exist when any order listed below is not followed: One, GOD is in charge of EVERYTHING! Two, the CEO/President will submit to God and to counselors appointed over him or her. Lastly, all plays are geared to reaching the lost, encouraging the saints, and most importantly, for the glorification of God. Can you tell by now, I love my job? After years of dreaming many dreams, after serving my country as an Air Force Master Sergeant selectee, after obtaining an Bachelors Accounting Degree, and after becoming a high school teacher substitute, I have found my final purpose in life—preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ through Gospel plays. I wouldn’t give it up for a million dollars!
Everybody knows success doesn’t come easy. However, the success of Heavenly Productions stems from three simple but tough functions: First, our personal relationship with Christ; secondly, our private prayer life; and third, listening and obeying the word of God for direction. Just like I said, they’re tough but in all honesty, these three functions will bring success to any business corporation. We knew that! Sometimes it’s just hard to do but…hang in there! After all, no one is perfect, and it takes time to build and live a lifestyle of true holiness.
