So, a few years back Vanessa and I wrote a musical called The Servant and the Enemy and toured it with our three kids. The show is based on a little story in the Bible from 2nd Kings thatís full of redemptive twists and delightful surprises. Well, weíve turned it into a movie so we could share this beautiful story far and wide! Itís the sort of story that will quite likely make you laugh, cry and and wonder at the beauty of redemption. Itís available for rent, or to purchase through Vimeo. You can watch on your computer, mobile device, or tv using a connected device such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Roku, and more. Here's the link:

Art that says, "I see you."
Our other theater company, Bucket Brigade, is about telling redemptive stories that compel us, connect us, and create space where we can see each other. Watch our new video and consider supporting redemptive art that says, "I see you."

We Finally Have a Home!

After fifteen years of traveling and performing, we're settling into our very own theater space!

We're excited to finally have a venue that TFTT fans can come to– to see our redemptive, imaginative brand of theater. Don't get us wrong, we'll still travel and come to YOU, but we're pumped to invite y'all over to our house for a change!

Our home (for our new theater company, Bucket Brigade) is Art House North– a venue for cultivating art and community (founded by our friends, Troy and Sara Groves). We're thrilled to partner with them to bring redemptive art to the West End of Saint Paul.

We've started a new theater company!
Vanessa and I have officially crossed the threshold of “middle-age-dom” (don’t tell anyone). We’re at the mid-point of our story. And in every good story the protagonist doesn’t just give up at the halfway point– they press in and press further into the adventure. And that’s exactly what we want to do.
Watch this video to find out more about The Bucket Brigade!

We're back from our fourth Summer Tour! We had a veritable hoot performing and playing throughout the wild, wild west–  climbing mountains, rafting rivers, telling stories, singing songs, roasting marshmallows. Thanks to all the churches who brought us out and the generous folks who opened their home to us. Let's do it again next summer, shall we?

Happy New Year

What a jam-packed year 2013 was! We premiered our new marriage musical "Til Death," we brought back our passion play "Kingdom Undone," we toured the wild west for our summer tour, we sold our house, lived with some friends for a couple months, moved into a new home, wrote a new Christmas show and much much more! Whew. Full of gratitude after a full year.

Thank you!

Thank you cast, crew, designers, volunteers and audience members for another memorable run of Kingdom Undone!

Stories from Uganda

Vanessa and I just spent a week in Uganda, Africa with World Vision. The purpose of the trip was to see, firsthand, the work that World Vision is doing in Uganda.The people we met were proud, grateful and filled with hope. They asked us to share their stories, to tell the people in America not to forget them, to help in any way they can. Here are a few of their stories. It is my prayer that their stories won’t fall on deaf ears, hard hearts, or tight purses. Mine included...

We're in a music video! For real!

Vanessa and I play a married couple (it was a stretch) in a new music video from Sara Groves. It won't take you too long to spot us, cuz, well, we're the only ones in the video. Sara makes great art and this is a great song. It was fun to be a part of this. Check it out.
