Celebration Ministry of Arts was founded in 1993 with a desire
to see God redeem the art of dance and sanctify it for use in the Church,
using skill and artistry through anointed dancers whereby all the earth
would see His glory.
"But the hour cometh, and now is,
when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that
worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." John 4:23-24
We strive to give our students excellence in dance training, because we
are performing for the most high King and He deserves the best that we can
give! Although technical training is very important to us, the most important
thing is teaching our students that worship is a lifestyle, a way they live
their lives each and every day. Through our devotional times in class, we
want to help our students grow and mature in their relationships with the
"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies
of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God, which is your reasonable service." Romans 12:1
Part of our vision is to teach and train our students to be passionate
about worshiping Jesus Christ and equip to them to be ministers and teachers
of the arts. Whether that be leading small groups, teaching others what they
have learned, starting their own worship dance ministry, becoming a worship
dance instructor or going on the mission field. We want the training to start
in our class times, but then build upon it as some of our students begin assisting
with our classes and train to become a teacher. We want to openly share,
and pass on the things that God has taught us along the way. Assisting others,
who have the same passion for worshiping Christ, in any way we can.
"...Make disciples, teaching them to do
(attend to carefully) all that I have
commanded you." (Matthew 28:19-20)
"The things that you have heard from me, commit
to faithful others, who will be able to teach others also." (II Timothy 2:2)
All of the ladies on our staff, desire to be a Godly example to each of
the young ladies we teach. We want to show them, not just by our words, but
also by our attitudes and actions, how to live a life of devotion and worship
to our Glorious Savior.
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you
are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love,
in faith and in purity." 1 Tim 4:12
Our desire is that ALL would come to know our Amazing Savior Jesus Christ.
We want to share about the Lord's forgiveness, hope and life! The Lord has
given us the tool of dance as a way to worship Him and to draw people into
His presence. During our performances we want to draw people's eyes to the
Creator of the earth and tell of His Glory! Through our dramatic movements
and the messages in our songs, we pray that hearts would be stirred, desiring
to know more of Christ.
"My mouth shall speak the praise of the Lord,
and all flesh shall bless His holy name forever and ever." Psalm 145:21
Included in our vision for evangelism, is missions. We want to encourage
our students to look outside of themselves, and stir a desire in them to spread
the gospel; making them aware that their mission field may be their next
door neighbor or needy people in another country. Since dance is a universal
language, it is an excellent way reach people and spread a strong gospel message.
CMA's company dancers have had the opportunity to minister in Japan for
the past 4 summers. The Lord has laid the people of Japan on our hearts in
a very strong way. We have been privileged to take Christ's hope to a spiritually
dark country and build relationships with missionaries and Christians in Japan.

Statement of Faith:

inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,

and trans-cultural. God does not change and the Bible is God's Holy Word.

and to die on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. And that He rose again
and is now seated at the right hand of God.
- We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts men of sin, and if we confess
our sins and commit our lives to Christ, God will forgive us and send His
Holy Spirit to dwell within us to guide us and empower us to live a godly
