Jennifer Wadsworth, the company’s artistic director, said, “Our hope and effort is to bring a message of assurance and enjoyment that there is divine purpose in our existence and healing in our relationships. We look forward to sharing our appreciation for God’s creations and the opportunity to share our conviction of the beauty that life offers.”
“My greatest joy in teaching and directing this tour group is having the capability to bring comfort, joy, even a sense of inspiration and hope to those we meet and perform for on tour.
