Theater an outreach into community for Manning pastor
The Rev. Ernest Shipe, who plays the ship's captain for the mystery-dinner performance "Murder on the Lust Boat," considers theater an outreach for his ministry.
Shipe, who is pastor of the Manning Community Church, is as comfortable on the stage as he is in the pulpit.
"I've been on stage since I was 3 years old," said Shipe. "I've always loved being in the spotlight, but it's an outlet that I don't do professionally."
