It’s been almost a year since the premiere of the children’s musical, “Knight Camp at Rock Kingdom.”  Since that time, more than 60 children’s choirs from churches or schools in at least 16 states (as far away as Alaska) have learned and shared this musical (and those are just the ones I know about from the internet or word of mouth). I have heard some remarkable stories of how God has used these children and their faithful leaders to encourage believers and bring others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  Soli Deo Gloria!

You might wonder just what motivated me to write the script for this musical?  That’s simple:  PASSION.  Perhaps I can better explain myself by sharing my “Reflections on Writing for CMS 5.1/5.2” provided on the LifeWay CMS Plans&Pluses 5.1/5.2 CD:

“I just love going to the beach! The ocean, the sky, the sand, the seashells, and all the animals remind me of God’s incredible creation and omnipotent power. But in a storm, I sure want to be up high on solid ground. And because I know the storms of life will come, I choose to build my life on Jesus, the unchangeable Rock of Ages.


Today’s children are increasingly faced with living on shaky ground in stormy times. The emotional and spiritual battles they face are difficult and very real. My passionate calling and heart’s desire is for young people to know the unchangeable love of Jesus and the solid foundation the Bible provides. Through the words and music we offer, my deepest prayer is that those who work with and love children as much as I do will find this a valuable resource to draw others to God’s kingdom. May God’s blessings and joy be yours as you love and nurture the precious children of our King.  --Soli Deo Gloria”


If you are reading this blog, I suspect you share my passion, and I know God has brought you to this place and time for a special purpose. My prayers are with you as you find and live the God-given passions and callings of your heart.

So, if you want to know more about “Knight Camp at Rock Kingdom,” read on.

How beautiful proper use of words can make a story is perfectly shown here. It seems like the writer has really worked hard to choose these beautiful jewels from a pile of stones.

It incorporates music from all the Broadway appears, similar to Rent, Wicked,The Producers, and Phantom of the Opera. Broadway music has suggestions (the begin of a musical) and huge amounts of melodies imbetween to clarify the tale of the musical.

Knight Camp at Rock Kingdom is all about the passion of the lyricist about the spiritual world. Passion makes a complete composer. Are you arranging a musical concert ? Click http://ambitious.nl/dj-huren to find such great composers and singers.
