ATTN: Congregants of the Hartwell Church of God – Pastor Wyatt Greer is dead. There will be no funeral (no cheese plates or cookie cakes with his face made out of icing). In order to save our souls and defend ourselves against the evils of the homosexual agenda…we’re having a competition! With no clear successor, we’re holding a good old-fashioned battle of wills to determine who will be the next pastor of the Hartwell Church of God. All male members of the congregation are encouraged to apply (if you’re a woman and even considering applying, this church has failed you).

Featuring Brian Bock, Trevor Bunce, Kayla Eisenberg, Annie Hoeg, Gabriel Hornig, Danté Jeanfelix, Liz Leimkuhler, Thomas Lynch, Morgan Morse, Sarah Mossman, Jacob Rienstra & Derek Smith
Lighting Design by Elizabeth M. Stewart
Pianist (Corey Sampson): Ben Langhorst
