“As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen 1Peter 4:10-11. For in Him we live and move and have our being.” Acts 17:28
To spread the “Good News” about Jesus Christ and other significant persons or message through the performing arts. To develop artistic talent in New Hope so that this talent can be used in other areas of life. The vision of the ministry is to raise the level of quality & effectiveness of drama and dance at New Hope in order to extend outside the walls of the church. Activities sponsored by the drama and dance ministry include:
The Drama Ministry is a ‘teaching’ ministry
Our ministry objectives are through drama:
– Teach on topics of the bible.
– Address social and economic issues.
– Discuss and demonstrate subjects that are not often the focus of conversation in school, the pulpit, and at home.
To teach and build confidence in our youth and adults using the following:
· Speak on a given topic for an extended period of time in an improvisation or monologue
· Speak clearly enough (pronunciation, enunciation, intonation, projection) to be understood by audience with or without a microphone (depending on size and setup of venue)
· Develop confidence in their ability to speak effectively in front of an audience
· Acquire good speaking and listening habits to understand, enjoy, and appreciate drama
