Point Winds presented “In All Things” in its inaugural year of competition, performing an artistic show depicting the need for Christ in all things.

Dr. Joshua Boyd, director of the Marching Skyhawks and Andrew Lightner, assistant director developed the performance with the intent to bring a Christian message to a large new audience. “Our group was given the unique opportunity to share a Christian message on one of the leading marching arts platforms,” said Dr. Boyd.
