Each dance ministry is committed to worshiping and praising the Lord through various visual forms. The Bible tells us that dance was used as a form of praise and worship to the Lord. Our purpose is to help build the kingdom by inspiring in others a greater relationship with Jesus Christ as we bring to life the heart of God, using words and music, through dance.
Mission: Through our dance and in all we do; we do it for the glory of God. We vow to teach, encourage, & inspire others to worship God through the use of the movement arts. Rather than just learning the dance, as a dancer, I will listen to the Holy Spirit and move as He instructs. Through participation in this ministry, we seek to bring ourselves closer to God through prayer, bible study, fellowship, and discipleship, while creating loving relationships within our ministry. We are not here to entertain – only to minister to others.
