At Mount Zion Church, we believe in using drama to reach out to communicate truth in a fresh and creative way. We also believe that drama can play a valuable role in the lives of believers at Mount Zion. The people who are involved in our drama ministry attend Mount Zion on a regular basis. They feel gifted and called by God to use their gifts to serve our congregation through drama.

How Do I Get Connected?
For actors, auditions are required for involvement on the drama team. The audition process begins with an open audition that occurs approximately once a quarter. For the first audition, participants do not need to prepare material. They will participate in theatre games, improvisations and short scene readings that will serve to assess dramatic ability and communication skills. Following the audition, participants may be invited back to a callback audition. The whole audition process for the drama ministry may take several months.
Contact us to find out when the next Drama Workshop/Auditions will be held.
Mount Zion's Drama Team is offering a FREE acting workshop for all interested parties 18 and older. (Childcare not provided).
This workshop is designed to be a fun and educational experience as well as an opportunity for attendees to showcase their talent. You will participate in theatre games, scene improvisations and cold readings of short sketches — all of which will be provided by our team. You do not need to bring any materials or prepared monologues.
Mount Zion Praise Dance Ministry is a group of dancers committed to extending Mount Zion’s message of hope, healing, forgiveness, and God’s love through the art of dance. We believe that the ministry of dance should not be confined to the four walls of a church or restricted to the gospel community but shared with the world.
What makes us different from most praise dance groups is that we are dancers called to minister not a ministry that dances. In our ministry all three of these criteria are equally important:
Natural ability to dance
Ability to effectively minister God’s Love through the art of dance
Our style is an eclectic mix of Modern, Lyrical, Jazz & Hip Hop.
About Creative Arts
The Creative Arts Ministry is here to support and enhance all the ministries of Mount Zion Church with quality dramatic, video and musical production.
Our Mission is:
To spiritually strengthen each other by sharing and developing our gift from God; worshipping by expressing gratitude through movements of praise to share the Gospel using the body, mind, and soul.
The Gospel is a gift to the world. Our desire and goal is to deliver the good news in new and refreshing ways. We will accomplish our goal using multiple forms of dance as well as different genres of music as long as it inspires and effectively gets the Gospel (God’s) Message across.
