Drama Ministry - Dramatic Christian Ministries - Narrow Gate Theater - Testimonies

I just want to take a moment to let you know how much I
appreciated your ministry for us on Sunday.  You were a blessing
to the body, and it was great for me to hear the whole story told at
once, and done in a creative way.  Simply reading that much
scripture would have been difficult to do and maintain good
communications skills.  However, doing it with the drama and
your role playing of the figures presented the Word in a powerful
way.You might also be interested to know that as I left you at the
restaurant yesterday and I was driving home, I saw one of the
men who had been in the early service on the side of the road at
a stranger's house.  I did a u-turn, and spoke with him about
another matter.  However, he affirmed again to me at that time
what he had already said at the end of the service on Sunday
morning.  It was so powerful for him to see the Nativity presented
in a dramatic form.  He was very moved by it, and was expressing
his gratitude that Cottonwood had had you come.  There were
others, of course, but this fellow has made a serious commitment
to Jesus during the past year, so the relationship he has with
Christ is really coming alive for the first time.  The two of you
made a real contribution to his spiritual growth.May God bless
both of you in your labors, and make provision for you according
to His riches in glory!                                                                                        
Pastor Robert G. Smith, Cottonwood CF, Alamogordo, NM

SUNDAY! May the Lord bless you.  I am hearing good things
from everyone about the impact of the Sermon on the Mount and
God's Grace and Israel's Place.  We forget the power of the word
of God.  It is sharper than a two edged sword! Pastor Hugh, First
Baptist Church, Grants, NM

Dear Mr. Cole, Thank you for blessing me the other night like you
did. I know I haven't known you very long, but I love you. Thanks
again, Blessings, Hannah (12)
Dennis, Thank you for sharing the ministry God gave you. We
have been very blessed. May we all become as little children and
learn afresh from our Great and Awesome God! You beautifully
brought the book of James alive.  - Your Crossway Family,
Palmer, MA
Thank you, so much, for being used by God to influence those in
this small body of believers.  I want to include here, that we went
to another church where there were 5 other small churches like
ours and the subject matter was the same.  Isnít it great how the
Holy Spirit works to help us to grow in our relationship with Christ.
We appreciate you being available to God for service.
Love Pastor Joe and Judy Bryant, Grace Baptist Church,
Alamagordo, NM
After seeing the Book of James presentation from Brother
Dennis, I am calling for a media fast in our church in March. The
message we recieved is to be spiritually purified. Pastor Tim
Tyler, Christ Community Church, Roslindale, MI
It has been such a blessing to have your ministry at our church.
Your ability to bring God's Word alive is such a strong and
passionate way to touch lives. His Word draws men. Your
dramatic presentation and style expressed your emotions and
feelings, as well as the characters. Immediately, you were able to
engage the audience. When I think of theatrical performances, I
immediately think that your supposed to get your socks knocked
off. You, no doubt, are a gentle and humble man. Because of
this, your ministry is successful. People see the Character and
not the man portraying the character. That in itself is more
powerful than "getting your sox's knocked off" by all the fluff! I
felt like I was there in the crowd with His disciples, because the
focus was on the Word! Thank you so much, and may the Lord
continue to direct your ministry in every area. God bless you, your
family and your ministry. - Henry & Kathy, Brewster, MA
We just wanted to say thank you! We know what you do, you do
for the Lord, not for personal thanks or recognition. But we still
want to thank you.

Thank you for the magical way you bring God's Word to life.
Thank you for being so willing to be used as His instrument. And
thank you for standing up for the children of this world. In a time
when so many are "me, me, me" and otherwise would push these
children to the side without a second thought, you are willing to go
out with God's Word and say "Look, look at them, this is what we
are forgetting, God's precious children."

So thank you for opening eyes and hearts every where you go.
We praise God that you came into our lives! You are in our
prayers! Love, Rick & Julie Gillespie
Freedom Road Church, Springfield, OH

Dear Pastor Cole, I just wanted to let you know what I got out of
the Spiritual Emphasis Week that you did at my school,
Markoma. God touched me and let me know that I did not have a
good attitude. By the end of the week, particularly the last service
that we had, God told me that I had to choose to have a good
attitude, and when I chose to do so he would be able to speak to
me! Thank you so much for coming and I hope you will keep in
touch. Susannah, Markoma Christian School, Iowa
Last night after I got home, I was awake for several hours
pondering what I had seen. the Lord gave me the scripture in 1
Kings 10....to help me explain. where it says of the Queen of
Sheba when she visited King Solomon..."It was a true report that
I had....and behold! the half was not told me!" I KNOW the Lord
is using your ministry. My heart was rejoicing. Edna Fitzgerald,
South Bend, IN.

"Growing up in the church, I have often felt the beatitudes as a
burden, i.e.: I must be meek to inherit. Tonight, I saw them for
the first time as a promise, an assurance, that the Lord would
bring from the pain of life the joy of His presence. Thank you!"
