This 3C "Cross-Cultural Creativity" Program is all about dramatic arts ministry, and ministering to those who have a unique cultural identity, ranging from mission field to inner-city and prison groups. The same intense preparation needs to be done for outreach evangelism in our own home town as when we travel to a far-off land.

Missions In A New Visual Reality Era
Dramatic arts ministry on the mission field offers a real opportunity to present the message in a motivating manner. But "preaching good" through dramatic arts ministry is a challenge; to be done well requires more than simply a 20 minute video showing a "skit", it requires training. Through this 3C Program we are attempting to provide this training, training which will allow amateurs to "preach good".
