We are in a world where the arts like theater music have a great effect on people. In the church it’s no different. Even though we are reaching many souls with the traditional method of songs and a sermon, we feel that there are those who can be effectively touched with the gospel trough drama. So though the message of the cross does not change, the methods do need to be constantly revised to reach the current generation. “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10 constantly changing world. EAC Drama Ministry represents the Word of God in action. It is the gospel of our Lord Jesus being presented by way of drama music visual arts Ina creative way.
