Angel-Do-you-believe-wide-shot-1200x740 A SPIRITUAL WAKE-UP CALL
TCTL is an immersive faith encounter, a “baptism of the imagination” with the “wow” factor that will engage hearts and minds! Our singers are not only Broadway quality, they are passionate believers. Add to that high-powered projectors and video imagery projected onto the walls 150-feet wide by 30-feet high, and people leave “speechless”, “blown away”, “in tears”, and “open to God’s love and mercy.”

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOW
I spent 35 years wanting nothing to do with God! I didn’t believe in Jesus, and I hated his church! I had no idea that I was the one who was lost until God knocked me off my high horse and showed me HIS plan for my life! I saw how much he loves me, and it changed me forever! God has called me to share HIS message of mercy and forgiveness with the world. I created The Cross and the Light to give people a life-changing encounter with Jesus! Read more.
