Carol Rezzelle

Founder & Director, Enopion Theatre Company

Enopion, Georgia’s only Bible theatre company, will soon be moving to a new home. Flowing Wells Theatre opens this spring with the Enopion production “The Cure”, a dining musical theatre experience which is set in the 1930’s and parallels the life of Christ. “At Flowing Wells Theatre, we will continue spreading God's Word through a theater experience,” shares Carol, “because there is a strong group of believers here who are looking for good moral entertainment or extra activities for their kids that goes along with their Christian values. We want to be a place people know they can trust, alongside of their churches, when looking for something for their families.”

Flowing Wells Theatre will also be available for community events which align with its mission. For more information, visit and or send an email to

Gay Bearden

Children’s Book Author & Bearden Music Studio Instructor

Years ago, as a second-grade teacher, Gay had her students draw pictures from which she would develop stories and make into classroom storybooks. Now, as a private music teacher who interacts with kids of all ages, she’s rekindled that passion and has published seven children’s books, one of which was illustrated by her music students. “I feel it's so important that children hold books and get joy out of reading books,” shares Gay. “I put the object lessons in there, such as being kind and brave and helping others, so that they can get something out of it, but I just want them to be able to have the thrill of sitting down and reading a book.”

Each book includes comprehension questions for further discussion and illustrations from a variety of collaborators including her daughter (Rebekah), son (Andrew), and uncle (Bill). In addition to having books available through Amazon, Gay keeps a supply on hand for local purchases. Email for details.

Yannik Mckie

Pastor and Founder, Chosen Church

Author, Living In Purpose

“I lost both my parents to AIDS before I turned sixteen. That pain caused a lot of turmoil initially, not knowing how to navigate that level of tragedy at such a young age sent me sideways,” says Yannik. “I always say, pain took me away from God, but pain brought me back to Him. What I know now is that a loving God does allow pain, and when you trust Him, He can turn it into purpose.”

  When Yannik moved to Augusta, he started an after school mentor programs for young men, programs for kids in the community, and a clothes closet. In 20XX, Yannik started Chosen Church, where he could expand his ministry and reach more people in the CSRA. 

Chosen is located inside Quest Community at 5001 Gateway Blvd. For more information, please visit
