Drama Ministry is Alive and Well!
I believe more churches are looking for new ways to minister to the congregation they serve. With church membership declining in many communities, people are searching for a better understanding of how the word of God relates to their lives. What better way to augment the preached word than to do a message-based drama presentation. There are several reasons why gospel drama is an effective ministry tool to have at your disposal.
It’s entertaining – There’s power in the preached word, but it’s also good to add a little variety and humor to your ministry offerings. A little laughter is good for the soul.
It’s non-threatening – Watching characters address their flaw is less threatening that having someone preach about our flaws.
It’s easy to remember – It’s easier for the audience to remember a ministry message presented visually (drama or video) than just listening to a ministry message.
It engages more members – Drama ministry provides an opportunity for other members to use their gifts and talents to minister God’s word.
It’s an excellent evangelism tool – It’s easier to get unsaved people to watch a drama presentation than to listen to a sermon.
Let this year be the year that you add drama ministry to your church ministry offering.
