Mission Statement

The St. James Worship Dance Ministry is committed to worshipping God through dance. We will serve Him by offering dance classes, worship, choreography, rehearsals, and evangelism through dance, primarily contemporary dance, to reach Pitt County, surrounding areas and the world for Christ and His kingdom.

We believe in the Great Commission; the calling to go and make disciples of many nations and to spread the good news of Christ. We believe the great commission is the obligation of every believer.

 

Vision

The vision is a space where dance classes and rehearsals are housed to provide training on how to use the gift of dance to glorify and honor God, and encourage the body of Christ through dance ministry. Students will be trained on the importance of prayer, worship, praise and evangelism. We desire to go out and minister to the people and body of Christ in Pitt County, surrounding areas and around the world to fulfill the great commission and see the body of Christ unified and purified for the coming of our beloved King and His Kingdom.

 

Goal

Our goal is to see people of all ages and abilities trained and equipped to carry the message of Jesus Christ in dance to their communities and the world to glorify God.

 

Objective

Ministry leaders are committed to establishing a sound spiritual environment, that is secure, calm, organized, and accountable and that carries out the mission statement that structurally upholds its philosophy. Ministry leaders are dedicated to worshipping the Lord in dance and providing a Christian world-view of the arts within a Christ centered environment.

It is our wish to impart a love for the Lord first and then dance and to encourage each student to reach their highest level physically and spiritually in dance. Our ministry serves the body of Christ in all ages that possess the desire to know God intimately and worship Him through dance. We desire to give excellent training with personal and loving instruction and spiritual discipleship. We will teach the discipline of body and mind and provide biblical instruction through prayer and knowledge of God’s Word. This will equip each student to minister to their communities and the world through dance from the guidance of the Holy Spirit, revealing His love and presence for the Glory of our King.

Performing opportunities serve as an opportunity to minister to the body of Christ, people in our community and world. We believe the creative process communicates the spiritual truths of God, His Word, and His purposes. So that the lost may be saved, the sick healed, the bride be made ready, and that the Lord may be glorified and His kingdom manifest itself here on Earth.
