In The Spirit (ITS) Dance Ministry – ITS  is called to incorporate the vision of the church into the scope of its mission which is “engaging disciples through ministry to serve and grow God’s kingdom”.  By doing so, it seeks to interpret biblical scripture through movement to the Kingdom of God and to live a life of holiness unto The Lord.  They are purposed and commissioned to heal the sick, deliver the inflicted and bring joy to all through liturgical dance.  The mission of ITS is to also help individuals who feel a call to the “Ministry of Dance”, to investigate and define their calling by providing education and training in the use of dance as a “ministry” versus “dancing” and “performing”.
