Spring 2018 Beta Outreaches
Written by Deanna Smoker
Timberline Church on March 25, 2018
Team Beta got the chance to go present for the Sunday morning service at Timberline Church. They presented two mimes for both services. Then they joined their Sunday School and taught the kids some technique and a mime, which went really well. After that they hung out and talked with the kids.

Conestoga View Nursing Home on April 8, 2018
Beta arrived at Conestoga nursing home and went inside to get ready to present their mimes. But they were told that they could not be there because the residents had the flu! The team was not quite sure what to do, so they went to a friend’s house that was close by. The staff at Conestoga said they would call back in the next half hour to see if they could work something out, and sure enough, they did! Beta went back to the nursing home and presented, but they had no physical audience. Instead, they were broadcast to the TVs in the residents’ rooms.

Real Life Teen Ministry on April 17, 2018
At Real Life teen ministry, Beta got there in time to eat dinner with the teens. Then they put on paint and presented six mimes. Afterwards, they were able to teach some mime technique, and they really enjoyed that. Even though they could not talk to the teens, Beta got to interact with them and got to know them.

Silent Auction at Banquet

: April 20, 2018 1:23 pm : Blog

We have been busy preparing for our 17-Year Anniversary Banquet next week!  We look forward to a time of fellowship with DRAMA friends and families, hearing testimonies from those who have been impacted by the ministry, and (of course!) seeing the teams present some mimes.

For those of you who will be attending, we would like to let you know that there will also be a small silent auction during the banquet.  Several hand-painted wooden signs will be available to bid on throughout the evening.  So please come out on Wednesday evening with this in mind!  There will also be DRAMA coffee mugs and t-shirts for sale.

We look forward to seeing you all next week as we celebrate God’s amazing grace and faithfulness over the past 17 years!

Kingdom Kidz Puppet Ministry

: December 8, 2017 3:30 pm : Blog

On October 20th-21rst DRAMA ministry’s team alpha had the opportunity to partner with Kingdom Kidz Puppet Ministry.  Kingdom kidz is an evangelism oriented ministry and they accomplish that through puppets. It was founded by Donna Bridge in December of 2000 in Milton, PA (where they are still located).

We arrived there and, because we were slightly late, we went on stage almost immediately and presented several mimes. Afterwards they provided us with supper and hosted us overnight  there as well.

The next morning we presented a few more mimes for several of the kingdom kidz staff and also did a mime workshop with them. During the workshop we taught them some technique and one of our one man mimes.

Saturday afternoon we went to a local Apple Butter Festival. There we had the really awesome opportunity to present along side kingdom kidz.

During the weekend we spent there one thing that really encouraged and grew me was the amazing unity we had with the staff at kingdom kidz. Even though DRAMA and Kingdom Kidz  have to completely different ministries we both have Christ as our main focus and that’s all we need to be unified.

This opportunity we had to partner with kingdom kidz was an amazing experience for Alpha. And we hope that this new relationship between these two ministries will continue.

To God be the glory!

Through Christ,

Alexis Weaver

DRAMA in Nepal

admin : November 9, 2017 7:42 pm : Blog

Hello friends!

I’ve put a few posts up on Facebook, but for the rest of our friends who don’t follow along that way, it seemed like about time for an update. Plus I’ll post more description here.

Our team safely arrived in Dharan, Nepal after quite the long journey and has begun to minister to EC Nepal churches that are gathering for their national conference. It’s certainly an interesting element for us to have our “team” include the heads of the EC Church in Nepal, India, Japan and the US.

Yesterday the conference began and today we’ll possibly begin to do workshops with the youth. The presentations so far have been very well received.

Pray for us, as the group we get to train looks to be over 100 in size, so space confines and keeping the process organized with language barriers will be tricky. But what an opportunity!

Attached are some pictures. God bless!

DRAMA to Nepal

Nepal Baptism

Hello Friends!

DRAMA has the opportunity to send a few of it’s leadership to Nepal next month from November 4-14. We’ll be partnering with The Evangelical Congregational Church of Nepal to share in their Annual Conference and help launch a Youth Track where we can equip and train youth from the national churches to use mime for evangelism and also encourage them in discipleship. I (Tim) and six of my leaders make up the team. We’ve already been support raising and a majority of the funds have come in, but we’re not quite there yet. If you’d be willing to give toward this effort, it’d make a difference. There is a button below that you can use, or you can simply mail us a check made out to DRAMA Ministry with a note saying it’s for Nepal and send it to  241 Blimline Rd., Mohnton, PA 19540.

Team: Tim King, Alex High, Becky High, Emily Weaver, Joseph Queen, John Moore, Scott Douglass.

Link for online giving:


We’ll post updates as we go, if you’re reading this on our blog, they’ll be posted there. If you’re reading this in an e-mail, our blog posts are already being sent to you. You’ll get to follow along already. If you’d like to get e-mail updates, just drop me a note at tim@dramateam.org and I’ll add you to our list.

God Bless!

God’s Clear View Ministry

: October 4, 2017 3:51 pm : Blog

On Saturday, September 30th DRAMA’s team Alpha went to God’s Clear View Ministries.  This outreach was an all day work day and God blessed us with a nice day for it.

We meet around 6:30am and headed out.

When we arrived Carlos and Migdalia (the directors of the ministry) took us on a short tour of the building and showed us some recent renovations as well as some rooms that still need a lot of work but have come a long way since they acquired the building.     2 

After the tour we split up into groups to accomplish the work they had for us to do. Three of us were inside changing out summer clothes with winter clothes in the Blessing Shop ( a place where people can get free clothes), washing down the trim, and mopping.

3       18               19                    20

The rest of us were working outside mulching, cleaning up some trash and siding, planting flowers, and filling a hole in the blacktop with gravel.

    59       6  4  7   15   10  14   16

Migdalia made an amazing lunch for us and they also provided breakfast food and drink us.

We had a really great day and were thankful for the opportunity we had to serve Carlos and Migdalia.

To God be the Glory!
