POGM - “ACT-One” - Theater Ministry

POGM - “ACT-One” - Theater Ministry


is a ministry with a mission and a people with a purpose. Our mission is to provide the highest level of artistic instruction and performance in an atmosphere of Christian integrity and excellence and to bring wholesome, family entertainment to our community and surrounding areas. Our purpose is to train people in dance, drama and related areas as a means of discovering and releasing the gifts and talents God has given them and in a way that glorifies Him.

This process builds relationships among those that participate and encourages their relationship with the Lord. POGM “ACT One” is founded on the Lord Jesus and we express our focus on Him through a program that builds compassion, cooperation, commitment and character in our participants. We have been blessed to bring many plays to our community over the year’s and we thank God for our families and staff who love the Lord and who have a heart for theater and missions.

Our wonderful staff is comprised of many un-paid volunteers and underpaid instructors who simply love God, love people and love theater. We want to produce the best quality plays within our means, yet still have fun and fellowship. Strong dramatic presentations are a revealing test to all who call themselves Christians, especially when the presentations occur in a church theater. They test whether we, as Christians, really believe what we say we believe. The church is only ready for drama, when it can open itself to the implications of dramatic revelation; when the congregation can accept the world of the imagination and can risk being excited, risk being frightened, risk being changed. Such risk is near the very heart of the Christian message.

POGM “ACT One” Member Guidelines

Every member is a volunteer, participating because they truly want to be here.

Every member will be regular in attendance and dependable.

Every member is a team player, not in it for personal fame.

Every member will help obtain and contribute available resources.

Theatre must be in your blood.

Every city desperately needs a theater that can afford to see devotion to truth as its controlling force.
