GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 17, 2021) The Bob Jones University drama team will present “UNBELIEVABLE: Stories of Faith” at the Ark Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky, May 17 – July 31. Performances will be held Tuesday through Saturday at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. in the 2,500-seat Answers Center and are included in Ark Encounter admission.

Under the direction of BJU faculty member, Jeff Stegall, the cast includes Megan King, theatre major, Greenville, S.C.; Katheryn Holcomb, biblical studies major, Marietta, Ga.; Eric Lane, theatre major, Travelers Rest, S.C.; and Michael Cunningham, theatre major, Inman, S.C.

“We can’t wait to host the BJU drama team at our state-of-the-art auditorium at the Ark Encounter this summer,” said Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis, the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum.

“People ask me what’s the play about,” said Megan King, BJU drama team member. “Well, it’s about faith. Faith starts in knowing what you believe and why you believe it and then sharing it with others.”

The script, written by former BJU faculty member, Dr. David Burke, for a multi-generational audience, is taken from Hebrews 11 and shows the power and importance of faith in a unique way with a modern application which ties the presentation together for the audience.

Since May 10, BJU science ambassador, Dr. George Matzko and his wife, Darlene, have been at the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum presenting three programs: Water Is the Miracle Chemical,” “Invisible Properties of Air,” and “The Mysterious Electron.” Each presentation demonstrates that Christianity and sound science are compatible.
