Ministry Teams: Salt & Light Drama Team

Drama Team

The Salt & Light Drama Team ministers through a full-length original drama, with a different play presented each year. Team members prepare during the first semester and minister during the second semester (mid January through April) to churches and Christian schools usually within a 1–2-hour travel time from the college.

Salt & Light’s ministry is geared for teens and adults but usually is suitable for most audiences of all ages. Because there is no drama without conflict, there always are some moments of tension between people, which may include raised voices and mild physical violence (as in shoving or grabbing another person). Some younger children may find these moments upsetting, and we leave it to the discretion of parents as to their seeing the drama.

We have a limited number of dates for the Salt & Light Drama Team to be scheduled, as all of the team members are full-time students at the college. Contact Jarod Burrer, Director of Public Relations, to schedule Salt & Light.

Sample Ministry Program

Testimony

A church group headed to an unnamed mission field for a short term ministry sets the stage for this year’s drama. In “Testimony,” the group is dealing with a five-hour airport delay, and the suggestion is made that each one share his or her testimony of salvation. Several of the testimonies are acted out as we see various approaches the unsaved take toward the gospel (e.g. “I don’t want it because Christianity is for weaklings”; “I can earn my own salvation”; “All religions are equally good”; etc.) The gospel message is presented several times from varying approaches, and it culminates in the salvation of one of the team members who had assumed he already was saved. The drama is approximately 45-50 minutes in length. Caution: One scene involves a military situation in which sounds of fighting and discussion of soldiers wounded or killed takes place, and a character dies onstage from wounds (not visible) received in battle. This may not be suitable for young or sensitive viewers.
