Live for Christ Ministry presents
Men at the Cross: The Play
Newark Stage
Doors Open at 5pm
Begins at 6pm
VIP Floor Seats $35
General Seats $25

LFCM presents an original stage play "Men at The Cross" debuting at Newark Symphony Hall.

Men at The Cross highlights several issues crippling the lives of four men and the women who love them. The story unfolds in a church filled with chaos as a result of the strongholds in the lives of its leading men.

These men are grappling with homosexuality, promiscuity, lust, and outright deception. Each of these men desperately want to move forward with their lives and families. However, deliverance seems so far from the realities of their struggles.

The final showdown in their individual quests for freedom erupts when the Bishop arrives to set this drama filled church in order. His intervention will bring healing and deliverance that is real and lasting. This production will keep you on the edge of your seat. Experience the joy, laughter, and pain we often encounter on this journey called life.

Written & Directed by Rev. Evette Goodman-Gibson
