By Myra Green – All of our children have been very active in the ministry of Bible Alive Theater for many years. Our son Allen led the Santa Fe team for several years, has written almost 100 songs for our musicals, and now serves as BAT Vice President. Our daughter Laura was one of our first actors and has provided artistic support for many productions. And our daughter Sandy has served as Ministry Leader for our Farmington, NM team and designed and maintains our website (biblealivetheater.org). And now, I announce with great joy that the board of directors, including Clif and myself, have just voted Sandy Efird the new President of Bible Alive Theater. We had a wonderful board meeting and elected the following officers for the upcoming year: Sandy Efird as President, Allen Green as Vice President, Hannah Phillips as Secretary, and Cathy Baade as Treasurer. We are so thankful for our wonderful staff. I know that our Lord will lead in the direction he wants BAT to go.
Sandy has Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Business and Visual Communications graduating top of her class at Lubbock Christian University. She has been working as a graphic designer for many years. She helps lead worship at her church, is a singer, actress, and a BAT board member. She is married to Phillip Efird, a man of God, and has three wonderful children ages 14, 11 & 9. She loves Jesus with all her heart. Sandy has been very busy providing BAT with digital resources for discipleship and outreach as our website manager, recording, editing and uploading free downloads for our site. She is currently our only paid staff member, receiving a part time salary of $700 per month. As of September, I no longer receive a salary but will continue as a volunteer, serving as Chairman of the Board, continuing to teach Bible studies and presenting solo musicals. Clif, who has been a volunteer for many years, has retired as Chairman of the Board and Treasurer this year, but will also continue as a volunteer. Thank you Lord Jesus for our other wonderful board members who continue to serve: Russ Sanderson (Vice Chairman), Glen Witt, and Janice Squires! May our Lord guide and protect us all.
Though I am retiring as administrative President of Bible Alive Theater, I will never retire from sharing God’s Word. As long as I am able I will continue to teach a Bible Study or present a solo Bible musical for those who thirst for ‘the Water of Life’. I am caring for my elderly parents and Clif and I aren’t getting any younger either, but I can still sing and travel short distances. So, if you would like me to come to your church or event please call me at 505-690-2548. We will be in Alamo, TX in November and back in Aztec, NM next April. We will be sending out free downloads of our solo musicals; so please subscribe to our new email service located on our website contact page.
You can also listen to or download the first few lessons of my ‘Walk through the Bible’ study series on our website. We are currently on the book of Genesis. Pray for us as we continue to spread the Gospel through the truth of His Word.
