LETU to Present Free Christian Drama featuring Kirk and Patty Lyle Oct. 29

Wed, Oct 8 2008

LeTourneau University will present Kirk and Patti Lyle in a Christian drama titled “Together Again … For the Very First Time” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, at the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in Longview. Admission is free. No tickets are required.
The play, written by the Lyles, is an entertaining, inspirational walk through the “Hall of Faith.” Historically accurate, the program captures the personalities of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things during the 20 centuries of Christianity. Dramatic scenes, sprinkled with humor, along with music from the era, combine to create touching insights into decisive moments in the lives of some of the best-loved saints. The result is a highly entertaining history of the Church from a very personal vantage point.
The authors are no strangers to church music. Kirk started as a protégé of Ronn Huff, who was then minister of music at his local church, and traveled for over a decade with the Spurrlows and Common Ground. During that time, he provided back-up music for Roy Clark, and produced performances on the Tonite Show, Bob Hope Special, and other TV shows. He also led the Spurrlows in a Presidential Command Performance at the White House.
After leaving these groups, he accepted a civilian Pentagon assignment as the Commercial Entertainment Specialist at Headquarters Air Force, where he helped to produce the Halftime Show for Superbowl XIX. Patti, a nationally recognized soloist, was a minister of music at a large metropolitan church before traveling for two years with Common Ground (where Kirk recruited her as a wife).
Kirk and Patti Lyles are in demand as clinicians and artists in churches, seminars, and colleges, where they are designated Staley scholars. They have also been featured scriptwriters for Alexandria House. Together, Kirk & Patti combine professional excellence in drama and music with the Word of God to create a unique experience of worship.
