EVENTSWest Michigan Christian News writer Terry DeBoer surveys the landscape for the area's faith-based arts and entertainment events over the coming month. Here are three highlights for April:

*Brad Stine – The Christian comedian with a "frantic" style mixed with a conservative viewpoint performs at 7 p.m. Sat. April 16 in Life Stream Church, 6561 Lake Michigan Dr. Allendale. Stine, whose past appearances include guest spots on "Comedy Central" and "Showtime," has largely performed to faith-based audiences throughout much of his career. He has also been a regular contributor to the TV network show "Fox & Friends." The opening act is Aquinas College's "In Case of Emergency" improv troupe. Tickets are $10 adults, $5 students and are available on line via the church website  or at the church office.

*The Singing Hims – The area Christian male chorus presents its 40th anniversary concert at 7 p.m. Sunday April 24 in Calvary Christian Reformed Church, 3500 Byron Center Ave. SW, Wyoming. The ensemble, which includes original director Jack Ponstine, features singers from a variety of area churches. The singers perform in nursing homes, campgrounds, missions and in many other settings offering their mixture of hymn renditions and contemporary anthems. Several recordings of past concerts are available. No tickets are necessary and there is no admission charge. For more information visit www.thesinginghims.org

The saga of faith and courage is enhanced as told through the beauty of music and dance. Evening performances are at 7 p.m. with a 2 p.m. matinee Sat. April 30.
