The Music and Worship Division at The Baptist College of Florida presents “The Promise.”

The Music and Worship Division at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) astounded the audience with its production of "The Promise" Thursday night on March 21. The BCF College Choir, orchestra, and the cast members made the program truly unforgettable as the story of Jesus was reenacted from His miraculous birth to His glorious resurrection.

As Grampa, played by BCF student Terry Mills, told the greatest story ever told to his grandchildren Lisa and Billy, played by Heather Simmons and Nigil Todd, the historic scenes of Jesus' life were portrayed. The three actors encountered Mary, Michelle Johnson, and Joseph, Josh White, as they traveled to Bethlehem. The grandchildren caught a glimpse into the childhood of Jesus, played by Cameron Diamond, and got a first-hand look into Jesus' ministry, temptation, trials, crucifixion, and resurrection, played by Jordan Crawford.

The BCF College Choir sang anthems that intensified every moment of Jesus' life including the joyful moments of His healings to the sad moments of His last words to His disciples. Soloists moved the audience with their powerful voices and determined convictions of truth. The BCF Orchestra never missed a note with their virtuoso performance while the actors captured the audience with their passionate and heart-felt performances.

As Jesus walked the Via Dolorosa and was nailed to the cross, the audience and crowds surrounding Jesus were engrossed in the intense emotion of that day. It was a powerful reminder of the sacrifice and historic gospel message that is found at the cross. The resurrection of Christ brought cheers and applause as Grampa shouted, "He's alive, He's alive, He's alive!"

BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen extended a grateful word of appreciation and thanks to everyone who participated in "The Promise." It was a night of remembering and celebrating Easter.
