GLEN ROSE, Texas - May 22, 2014 - PRLog -- In 2013, as The Promise celebrated 25 years at the breathtaking Texas Amphitheatre in Glen Rose, the word around town was that it could possibly be the last.  Somervell County was making budget cuts, and Texas Amphitheatre, home of The Promise, was slated to be closed for good.

As word of the possible closure of Texas Amphitheatre traveled, The Promise experienced an outpouring of love and support from those who have known and loved the ministry throughout the years.  On October 19th, all attendance records were broken, and The Promise was performed to the largest crowd ever in Texas Amphitheatre history.  Letters and phone calls of prayers and praise came in large numbers, from all over the country.

The Promise, not only a play, but a vibrant ministry that brings the Bible to life, began in 1984, when 15 men came together to discuss the opportunity to produce an outdoor passion play in North Texas.  Two of those men, Dr. Ronald Corley of Lufkin, and Mr. Philip Hobson of Weatherford are still on the board of The Promise today.  The labor of love has traveled the world, and been performed before millions of people from  Moscow, Russia, Seoul Korea, New York City, Branson, Missouri - all the while faithfully performing each year in Glen Rose.  The ministry of The Promise, and its mission to bring the Life of Christ accurately to the stage has touched so many, and in so many ways.

So, it was with prayerful consideration, the Board of Directors of The Promise drafted a proposal to lease year round, and take on theater operations of Texas Amphitheatre.

On the morning of November, 18th the Somervell County Commissioners voted unanimously in favor of a proposal for a 10 year exclusive lease submitted by The Promise Board of Directors.  Board President, Philip Hobson said "As business people, we understand what the commissioners are faced with, but also know what 'The Promise' means to so many,”

With this new lease, The Promise will look forward to sharing His story for many years to come, on the stage that He planned for it so long ago, on a hill in Glen Rose, Texas -  one that The Promise will now officially call “Home Sweet Home”!
