“Hide and seek, lost and found… games not only played by children but by all of us in our everyday lives. We run and hide from our deepest, darkest secrets and sin; we struggle, fight, resist, only to find ourselves starting all over again as if trapped in a time loop.
“Is there a solution? Is there hope? Is there someone who really will find and seek us out! The key? We simply must be serious and desperate about finding Him?
This is the promising premise of ‘Found’, an original musical presented programme for youths in transition (after ‘O’ Levels, ‘A’ Levels, or National by the 2015 batch of Trackers. TRACKERS is a three-month discipleship Service), incorporating biblical learning, mentoring relationships, mission exposure and local internship involvement. It is run by Truthmin – Trinity Annual Conference (TRAC) Youth Ministries.
This year, Trackers were introduced to Creative Arts training as part of the programme. The Rev Raymond Fong, Assistant Director of TRAC Board of Youth Ministry, noted: “Based on past years’ experience, we had many Trackers who were skilled and gifted in the area of creative arts. We sensed the Lord’s leading to develop and nurture the strengths and abilities of the Trackers this year, so that they can be a blessing to their local churches after the TRACKERS programme.
“What better way to express their passion and gifting in creative arts, than to have an evangelistic musical to reach out to their friends and loved ones?”
The script, which is an original, was initiated by Truthmin staff Mr Reginald Chan, with input from the Truthmin team. It incorporates themes of identity, relationships, struggles with sin and addictions, and finding God in the reality of daily living.
Reginald, who is the musical’s Director and Producer, elaborates: “The story is based on the lives of three characters who are at crossroads in their lives after exams and army. Decisions, decisions and more decisions. No longer teens but now young adults. Is this new-found freedom or is it just an illusion?
“Do they have the power to control their destiny and future? They will soon find out that it is slowly slipping from their grasp. Are they really that invincible? The reality of their frailty will soon be exposed.”
TRACKERS 2015 hopes to appeal to pre-believing youth and young adults by putting together a musical that uses multimedia, drama, dance, and singing of contemporary secular and Christian pop songs.
Bring your friends for this evangelistic musical that they too may be ‘Found’ in Christ.
