LETU to Present Free Christian Drama featuring Kirk and Patty Lyle Oct. 29
Wed, Oct 8 2008
LeTourneau University will present Kirk and Patti Lyle in a
Christian drama titled “Together Again … For the Very First Time” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, at
the S.E. Belcher Jr. Chapel and Performance Center, 2100 S. Mobberly Ave. in
Longview. Admission is free. No tickets are required.
The play, written by the Lyles, is an entertaining, inspirational
walk through the “Hall of Faith.” Historically accurate, the program captures the
personalities of ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things during the 20 centuries of
Christianity. Dramatic scenes, sprinkled with humor, along with music from the era, combine to
create touching insights into decisive moments in the lives of some of the best-loved
saints. The result is a highly entertaining history of the Church from a very personal vantage
The authors are no strangers to church music. Kirk started as a
protégé of Ronn Huff, who was then minister of music at his local church, and traveled for over a
decade with the Spurrlows and Common Ground. During that time, he provided back-up music for Roy
Clark, and produced performances on the Tonite Show, Bob Hope Special, and other TV shows. He also
led the Spurrlows in a Presidential Command Performance at the White House.
After leaving these groups, he accepted a civilian Pentagon
assignment as the Commercial Entertainment Specialist at Headquarters Air Force, where he helped to
produce the Halftime Show for Superbowl XIX. Patti, a nationally recognized soloist, was a minister
of music at a large metropolitan church before traveling for two years with Common Ground (where
Kirk recruited her as a wife).
Kirk and Patti Lyles are in demand as clinicians and artists in
churches, seminars, and colleges, where they are designated Staley scholars. They have also been
featured scriptwriters for Alexandria House. Together, Kirk & Patti combine professional
excellence in drama and music with the Word of God to create a unique experience of worship.
