Acting Out His Word Ministries has been formed to provide a rationale and method for memorizing and performing the Word of God for the benefit of both the actors and the audience. The book Depth by Drama: Dramatic Discipling is the main tool to this end, as will be social media publishing to illuminate, expand and encourage a movement of Christian activision to the end of ending Bible illiteracy.

The Bible is revealed truth, and every person on the planet should have access to the information contained, in the hope that the Spirit of God will use that to bring them to faith in Jesus Christ.
