Jordan’s adaptations of the Gospels combine power, depth and humor in a remarkable telling of the gospel narrative to a modern day audience for all ages. Sponsored by the mission committee of Quaker Gap Baptist Church, this performance will be a community benefit for the King Outreach and East Stokes Ministries of Stokes County. Admission is free; donations will be accepted during an offering at intermission. For more information contact QGBC at 336-994-2117.
