Drama Ministry Directors

New Destiny loves to utilize drama ministry to proclaim the Good News of Jesus to our community! We believe that theatrical means are a wonderful way to reach our sight and sound culture. Just as Jesus used parables to illustrate the truths He was teaching on, drama and the performing arts do the same! The message is sacred and does not change, but our methods must be contemporary! Our theatrical productions are, and they communicate the power of Romans 6:23: sins destroys but Jesus saves!

 

Whether we are presenting a traditional Easter drama or our original heaven and hell production, The Fire & The Flame--our church always comes together enthusiastically to put on a top notch outreach event! The photos below are from both of these dynamic drama productions.

Jonathan Rash has been involved with drama ministry for over 20 years, participating in a variety drama projects that have included acting, writing, directing, scene painting, and other theatrical design elements including set, costume and prop design. After serving 20 years in the Marine Corps (Active and Reserve), he retired in 2009 and felt God was calling him to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through drama. He pursued his passion for drama/theatre and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Applied Theatre Technology from MSU Denver. While still in school and since graduation, he designed professionally for a number of theatres in Denver, the Front Range and the Rocky Mountains including Central City Opera, Lake Dillon Theatre, T’da Design and others. He also had the opportunity to design the sets for Faith Christian Academy’s productions of Les Miserable, My Fair Lady, and Mary Poppins the past three years. His acting credits include but are not limited to playing Peter Shirley, in Major Barbara, Joe Zutty in Working, and Dr. Gomm in The Elephant Man (All main stage productions at MSUD) In his spare time he can be found painting, drawing, reading plays, and going to the theatre. He enjoys the outdoors too; hunting, fishing, camping, and riding motorcycles are all passions of his as well.
