Anchorage churches rarely present anything of note for the local community. When they do, it seems attendees tend to support these events along denominational lines, although that truly has little to do with sponsoring churches or their theology.
Saturday night, February 11 @ 7 p.m. Wendy Williamson Auditorium at UAA, people of faith have a wonderful opportunity to see a gospel presentation taking you back to the time the gospels were in development. This program concerns ALL who are covered by the Gospel of the Good News.

What is this play about?
Steve Johnson’s “A Play for a Purpose: The Gospel According to John Mark” is a one man, dramatic presentation of life during the first century. “The Gospel According to John Mark” will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you feel like you, too, are an eyewitness to the most extraordinary story ever told.
John Mark was there. When Jesus fed 5000 and walked on the water. When Peter was freed from prison by an angel and when Paul was lead away to execution. He knows who wrote Hebrews and what Jesus wrote on the ground. He’s the last living eyewitness to the life, death and resurrection of the Lord. He’s going to tell you everything you ever wanted to know about…

What do past audience members think about it?
“ ‘John Mark’ was phenomenal. We were inspired and encouraged, entertained and convicted. Steve has done a masterful job with this one-man act. He will have your church both laughing and crying. HIGHLY recommended.”

“What an amazing performance! Attentions were riveted, imaginations were stirred, and hearts were moved. It was not only super entertaining, but also spiritually enlightening. From the youngest children to the oldest disciple to the newest visitor: everyone loved it!”
“Imaginative yet Biblical. Artistry wrapped in truth. John Mark… a powerful performance that will make you laugh and make you cry. A fascinating monologue that opens your eyes to experience Jesus. In the end, you’ll only wish for more.”
