The mission of Piercing Word is to ignite passion for the Word of God in the heart of the church. We do this by performing scripture word for word in compelling dramatic presentations, challenging and encouraging people to memorize God's Word. In addition, we also offer Summer Theatre Camps, Fall and Spring Discipleship Teams, as well as seminars and workshops on memorizing the Bible. We are based out of Lancaster, PA with performance teams that can travel to other cities and states by request.

Piercing Word has been performing scripture across the country since 2007, and I never cease to be amazed at how powerfully God works when we perform the Word of God. All we do is take the scripture, divide it up into lines, and put it on the stage. We don't add anything to it. We speak the Word and the Word alone. "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." (Hebrews 4:12 ESV) I pray that God may use us to ignite passion for the Word of God in the heart of the church. May each heart be changed by His Piercing Word!

Dr. David Fleming,
I highly recommend Piercing Word. We recently used them at Champion Forest to conclude a series of sermons through Ephesians. This group of godly young people dramatically recited the entire book, word for word and chapter by chapter.. It was incredibly powerful to hear the entire letter as if we were the Church at Ephesus hearing it for the first time and from the Apostle Paul himself. Our people still talk about that day and Piercing Word's touching presentation of God's Word. I will use them again . . . and I recommend you use them as well.

I first saw a Piercing Word performance at a youth event where they presented the book of Jonah. I was totally blown away at how they made the book come alive and with the excellence and perfection of the performance. Our church was going through the book of Colossians, so I asked them if they would consider doing that book for our church. They quickly agreed and within a short time had the entire book memorized and presented it masterfully to our congregation. We received many highly favorable comments from our members. What a great ministry!
DOVE Westgate Church, Ephrata, PA
Piercing Word does a superb job of presenting dramatic and powerful messages for the church. When they are performing a book of the Bible, the message is clear and passionate. Our people responded wholeheartedly and enthusiastically to everything they presented. Piercing Word has found a way to challenge God's people to live out an authentic Christian faith in a disarming and nonthreatening way. I would encourage any church to consider hosting this ministry.
First Baptist Church, Arkadelphia, Arkansas
Piercing Word is awesome! Any time they are in the Houston area, they are automatically booked for one Sunday in our church. Their passion and presentation of the Word of God encourages, blesses, and challenges people in their relationship with the Lord Jesus and inspires them to be more than just hearers of the Word, but doers also. I would recommend Piercing Word to any church to encourage and challenge the saints with the abiding Word of God!
North Shore Church, Montgomery, Texas
Seeing God's Word dramatically presented twice by Piercing Word has opened up the Scriptures to me in a new and exciting way. The words of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount and the Book of Ephesians seem so alive now after witnessing the dramas. I can picture Jesus teaching the multitudes and Paul writing his letter to his beloved Ephesians. I have also been inspired to memorize Scripture and saturate myself with God's Word. Praise God for this new ministry and may you, too, be blessed by Piercing Word!
Parkway Baptist Church, Bardstown, Kentucky
Piercing word ministry is a ministry that brings the Scriptures alive by acting out the word of God in a brilliant verse by verse drama. We have had piercing word ministry perform at our church twice in the past year, both to rave reviews. They offer a unique and fresh way of hearing, tasting, smelling, and seeing the Word of God.

James L. Horning,
I highly recommend Piercing Word. We recently hosted this talented group of young people to perform the book of Jonah for our elementary kids night. The production was geared to the elementary grade level and held the attention of the elementary crew the entire time. The Team is pleasant to work with and you will gain a true inspiring new look at scripture....yeah, Highly recommended!
