Something new is coming... Stay up
to date with DramaShare!
We are privileged to be serving in churches with congregations numbering in the thousands. But even moreso we are blessed to be working in smaller churches, and in colleges, schools, groups, homeschool ministries and alongside individual missionaries. Today, as never before, we can provide needed materials, support and encouragement throughout the world, without even leaving our office.
As well as providing materials from this web site, DramaShare is writing materials specifically for churches, colleges and individuals. This is an awesome opportunity for us, but it also provides us with the challenge of ever-increasing time and financial commitments in this ministry. Your support of DramaShare through your paid membership is crucial to maintaining this ministry.
Materials are put here for the use of all. We trust you find these materials helpful in your ministries. We do ask, however, that you, in turn support us through your membership in DramaShare.
DramaShare is blessed to have wonderfully experienced volunteers working alongside us in their area of expertise.
The following are a few examples of those who donate their knowledge and experience to you, and the broad range of information they offer. For full listings of all the Practical Assistance available to DramaShare members, check out the Practical Assistance link at the top right hand corner of this page under "Sitemap".
