Produced and written in-house by Bethany staff, The Situation Room is a LIVE production that follows the story of a family as they all come face to face with eternity. Even seemingly small decisions can bring drastic change.

The Story

The Situation Room follows the story of the Richards. They are a typical family that is about to be faced with a lifetime of decisions and situations. Michael & Chloe have been married for 17 years and have three kids, Kingston, Olivia, and Jayden. When they met, Chloe was given a job opportunity that she could not pass up. She and Michael decided to chase after their careers and wait to start a family, but Chloe became pregnant, unbeknownst to him. Chloe decided to have an abortion and pass it off as a miscarriage. They later had three kids but stayed distant from Michael’s mother, Evelyn.

Michael has always been content. He graduated college to be a teacher at much protest from Evelyn, his mother. However, the moment Michael became a father, his life changed. He re-focused his life, and became driven to give his kids the life he didn't have growing up. Things have been distant between Chloe and Michael over the years, but his concept of his wife is challenged as a huge secret comes out.

Evelyn is considered the “saint” of the family. She is your typical southern roots grandmother. Evelyn has two children and has been a staple in her community for years. Her relationship with Michael is strained. Always feeling like Chloe took her son and grandkids away from her, she has always held anger and resentment towards both Chloe & Michael for years. Things begin to reach a tipping point as years of frustrations come to the surface and ultimatums are made.

While Kingston, the oldest grandson, has been having problems adjusting to the move, Evelyn has been sowing seeds of discord between her grandson and his parents. Kingston is trying to find his place. At 18 years old, he is now an adult looking for his next season in life, but family issues continue to draw his focus as he is forced to choose sides.

Things take a dramatic turn when their lives are faced with eternity after a car accident takes the lives of the entire family. They soon realize that even the smallest decisions in their lives have enormous repercussions for their futures. One by one, they must account for who they are while facing the eternal consequences of their decisions.
