In concert with Grace Place Hawai'i and several churches and schools in Hawai'i, we are filming the live action version of the awe inspiring dramatic musical "The Light"


The fabulous cast and crew of these combined music and worship arts ministries will lead you on a

journey of love and sacrifice as we experience the ministry and passion of the life of Jesus as He walked this earth over 2000 years ago. It will inspire and convict all who witness

the greatest story ever told!


 There is a place for everyone - singers, actors, dancers, musicians, carpenters, painters, technicians, seamstresses, greeters and anyone who wants to see the gospel told in a way like never before here in Hawaii.
