Who We Are ! Power and Light Productions, Inc. (P&L) is located just outside Wauchula, Florida in Hardee County. This 501c3 non-profit, non-denominational ministry was established in January of 2001 under the direction of Pastor Mike Graham and a volunteer Board of Directors. From the beginning, the mission of P&L has been to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. Projects have included the establishment of Club Forty 31 (a Christian youth center for teen agers, which is no longer in operation due to the hurricane of 2004), Real Life Church (a non-denominational New Testament church, founded in May of 2004), THE STORY OF JESUS, and many other various projects designed to promote the cause of Christianity. With an emphasis on dramatic arts, the production, THE STORY OF JESUS, has been the “flagship” of the ministry from day one. It is produced annually by P&L with the help of individuals from nearly forty different churches in central Florida. Funding is made possible through ticket sales, the sale of merchandise, and donations from individuals, businesses and organizations.
The P&L board, as well as assistants and participants share a common faith. WE BELIEVE in one God who manifested himself through his only Son, Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE that this same Jesus was born of a virgin, lived among us, died on the cross for our sins, rose from the grave on the third day, and ascended into Heaven. WE BELIEVE that salvation and eternal life is not earned by human merit but is a free gift for any who will accept it through claiming Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. WE BELIEVE that God seeks to carry out his will today through the indwelling gift of his Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians who, together form the church, and together await his second coming and the gift of eternal life in Heaven.
OUR VISION - Although the play is presently produced in a rented facility, P&L has always had the vision to build it’s own theater. A privately owned facility would insure the longevity of the play, as well as provide the opportunity to produce other epic, Biblical plays. Scripts for THE STORY OF MOSES and THE STORY OF NOAH have already been developed and written. FORTY ACRES OF PRIME LAND ON STATE ROAD 66 IN HARDEE COUNTY HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED as the site for the new complex. The daunting task now lies ahead of raising the funds for the construction of this new home. Please pray for us as we seek the God of miracles that he might bless us in making our vision a reality.
