Dan Stayskal, Member, Samaritan Ministries International (Samaritan Ministries, samaritanministries.org)
Dan Stayskal is a man of conscience, and that inner voice motivates him to share the Gospel in a surprising way. The vision of his organization, White Thorn Events, “is to impact as many people as possible with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the arts,” Stayskal says, and he sees people meet the Savior at his events.
On December 6, White Thorn events will present Ballet Magnificat! and its story-telling prowess in Most Incredible Christmas. This captivating performance is for a live audience at 7 pm at the RP Funding Center in Lakeland, Florida, but also for an audience from all 50 states via livestream and on-demand!
Most Incredible Christmas is a Broadway-style event inspired by extraordinary and familiar Christmas traditions from around the world. More information on the event is here. Also, Ballet Magnificat! Highlight Video is here.
“At the end of an event, some come forward to pray with the Ballet Magnificat performers, and give their lives to Christ! That makes it worth every hour, every minute, every sleepless night of planning and preparing for that event!,” Stayskal says.
Dan’s conscience also influenced him to leave his traditional health insurance plan that covered abortion and other objectionable procedures. Stayskal and his family are now members of Samaritan Ministries, a Health Care Sharing Ministry that allows Dan to avoid funding abortion, and to keep his conscience clean.
