Drama Outreach Trips

Share the Gospel Through Drama

Join us in sharing the Gospel through drama! The Department of Theatre Arts and SCA has partnered with LU Send to offer trips around the world with the drama ministry each year.

You will present dramas at schools, theaters, churches, refugee centers, and sometimes on the city streets. Collaborate with and train local leaders in drama ministry, and engage in service opportunities. You will be challenged with the opportunity to plan, direct, and perform in ways that transcend both language and cultural barriers.

Advance your education beyond the classroom, as you learn how to address real-world issues through drama. Use the research you gather to help develop culturally relevant skits, dances, and movement pieces that address issues like starvation, homelessness, abandonment, self-harm, language barriers, and identity to be used on future trips.

As I stepped into my first trip I saw how God touched the lives of so many; those that were being served and those serving. God moves in amazing ways through this trip. It is a time where the students see how the Lord is training them to use the very skills they have studied to spread the good news of the gospel. It is so beautiful to see how using dance and theatre can break down barriers and clearly shine a light on the beauty and power of the Lord. It opens the eyes to how very big and diverse the world is, yet how we are all the same in our need and hunger for the Lord.

– Aubri Siebert, Assistant Professor, Department of Theatre Arts

Recent Drama Trips

Dramatic arts have been used in missions for many years to engage local cultures and create opportunities for connection. Liberty University’s drama ministry teams are uniquely qualified to assist local ministries in presenting the Gospel through drama, in ways that overcome language barriers and strengthen relationships with the community.

We have sent teams to France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Northern Africa,  North Carolina, and Georgia. While there, our teams combined educational opportunities, service opportunities, and cultural engagement into daily activities, along with site seeing and experiencing the local culture.
