Purpose: Our purpose is to impart and administer God's WORD through the Ministry of Dance. Throughout scripture, dance is linked to life, freedom, salvation, and victory over the enemy. Dance is a tool used to convey that power of the WORD to bring salvation to the afflicted and freedom to those who were bound through the physical movements of worshiping and praising GOD humbly in spirit and in truth.

Our mission is to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and the living WORD through movement. We are the WORD in MOTION.

Our goals are:

  • To know God's purpose for dance in the church
  • To have a good prayer life and be in the will of God
  • To strive to be spiritually minded in every aspect of our life
  • To ensure that dancers are spiritually, physically, and mentally prepared for this ministry
  • To be humble, submissive, and tactile in the Lord's hands, as clay in a potter's hands
  • To dwell on one accord and support one another spiritually

Membership Criteria:
There are groups for all ages! We accept new members yearly during the month of October. All members are required to go through a period of study and training in preparation for ministering through dance.

  • Led By Christ Ages 5-12
  • Creative Teens Ages 13-17
  • Women of Glory Ages 18-46
  • Praise Warriors Ages 47+
  • Banner and Flag Bearers Ages 18+
