The matinee family performance begins at 5 p.m. and the evening performance begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are required for admission with the matinee tickets priced at $4 each and the evening show tickets are $6 each. There will be no nursery available and due to the length of the program, it is not recommended for children under age 6. To purchase tickets you may phone the church at 302-875-5380. Andre Kole has performed in over 78 countries of the world for millions of people. In addition, he has appeared on national television in over 40 countries and has given over 3,500 performances at colleges and universities.
