Miming is the ability to be able to control and deliver the non-verbal language of telling a story by using only your body and facial expressions. Modern European mime began in the early 1700’s. The best known European mime artist is the phenomenal Marcel Marceau. He has portrayed many different characters, but his most famous is called “Bip”.

Today, this form of drama has swept churches across the nation in an amazing way. Who would have ever thought that ministry, through this form of art, would be embraced. We are talking totally non-traditional here. And as history has shown, things that are non-traditional have mountains to climb, simply because breaking “tradition” takes people out of their comfort zones. I am so thankful to be a part of a church that tries not to keep God in a box. What the ministry of mime has done is expand the horizons of the means by which we spread the Gospel. God uses what He sees fit to make His presence known in the land. An integral part of that picture is now mime.  Mime ministries bring the lyrics of Gospel songs to life through creative depiction with the use of expressive choreographed movement and dramatic storylines.  

This ministry is my heart. It’s life changing. Not only does it have an impact on the people God is using me to minister to but it is also inspiration to my own life. This is another way of how I express my love and passion for God. If you or someone you know would be interested in this form of ministry, I encourage you to get involved. It’s an incredible experience!
