Performers from across the CSRA and the coast who use the art of movement and gestures to win souls for Jesus Christ were showcased at a Thomson church Saturday afternoon.
The Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church hosted a Mime Conference on Feb. 23 which featured the umbrella group called The Experience and its offshoots called Touched, which comprise groups in the CSRA, Savannah and other states. Church mime ministries attended to learn techniques and how to strengthen their use of music, art, drama and dance to introduce young people to the gospel.
“We believe that if you bring about an encounter with the Holy Spirit, lives can be changed,” said Pastor Derwin Jackson, leader of The Experience, and mime ministry expert who is based in Greensboro, N.C.
The conference was held to help churches strengthen their youth departments and highlight mime ministries as a form of outreach.
