Who We Are

Piercing Word is a group of theatre professionals who are passionate about coming alongside Christian Leaders to help them engage their people with the Word of God. We do this by performing scripture in dramatic and musical presentations that are word-for-word from the ESV Bible and providing resources on how to better memorize and study the Bible. Piercing Word is a full-time, non-profit theatre ministry based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and most of our ministry takes place within a two-hour radius of Lancaster, with occasional regional tours of the United States. We perform for churches, conferences, colleges, and special events as well as retirement communities, homeless shelters, and more! Contact our team to see what scripture performances we have available that could compliment your service or event today!

Mission and Vision

We seek to ignite passion for the Word of God in the heart of the Church by engaging people through theatrical encounters with God’s Word, encouraging everyone to grow deeper spiritually, and equipping the Church with resources for Bible memorization and study.

Piercing Word Values

The Word of God

We believe God speaks through His Word.  This is why all of our live Scripture performances are word-for-word from the Bible.  We seek to always be true to the Biblical intent of the passages through proper Bible study and exegesis.

The Local Church

We believe the local Church is God’s design for cultivating spiritual growth.  This is why we strive to come alongside Christian leaders in engaging, encouraging, and equipping the people of God.

Artistry

We believe that God has given creativity and storytelling as powerful tools for ministry.  This is why we strive to always use artistic excellence in highlighting the truths of God’s Word in relatable ways. 

Authenticity

We believe that we are ordinary people connecting others to an extraordinary God.  This is why we strive to do everything with humility and authenticity for the glory of God.

Spiritual Growth

We believe that all Christians should be growing more and more into the image of Christ. This is why we strive to encourage everyone, everywhere we go, to take intentional next steps in cultivating their walk with God. We also strive to equip the Church and individuals with resources to aid in the memorization and study of God’s Word.
