The Jeremiah People
There is a saying, "Music touches the soul." In addition, Drama and Theatre provide a different perspective to the commonplace, challenging the audience to confront previously unaddressed issues. With the exact fusion of the two medias, the Jeremiah People effectively present a powerful message that ministers to the soul, while providing an unusual perspective to today's life issues affecting both Christians and non-believers.
The Jeremiah People have wowed audiences for nearly 30 years with their unique style of music, laughter and drama. In their years of ministry service they have brought hard-hitting gospel presentations to millions, healing to families, inspiration to youth, and loving hearts to elderly. Jeremiah People perform in churches, theatres, and auditoriums in nearly 45 states in the nine months that they are commissioned.
The mission of the Jeremiah People is to inspire the church, energize the family and challenge believers and non-believers alike with the message of Hope found in Jesus Christ. With their Broadway-style full-length musicals, humorus sketches, professional choreography, and powerful voices, the Jeremiah People truly present a performance for all ages.
Under the production management of Colin Hearn and the direction of Nathan Mahy, the Jeremiah People will be ministering all across America again this season. The 2005-2006 season is entitled "My Rules of Engagement", written by Sandy Brownlee of New York and with accompaniment by Dave Lemieux of Colorado. We will be looking at some of the issues that today's families are faced with. The story revolves around the relationship between a father and his daughter.
With a remarkable playwrite, original music, and a powerhouse cast, this musical is a "must see"!
The group is comprised of six talented actors and three support staff who, in addition to surviving a selective auditioning process, have committed ten months of their lives to taking this message on the road.
Here are just a few of the comments from those who have seen The Jeremiah People:
"Your ministry here was outstanding. The message was clear, the presentation professional. It was an opportunity for us to reach out to our community. I apprecaited the great communication that surrounded the ministry of the Jeremiah People here and look forward to having you minister here again next year!" - Jerry Scott, Pastor, Washington Assembly of God of Washington, NJ
you! Thank you! Thank you! Your concert was heart-stirring, thought-provoking
and truly God-Blessed... Particularly pleasing to me was seeing 1st graders
laughing right along with their parents, grandparents smiling (even slipping
out a chuckle or two), and teens totally transfixed by the message you
relayed to us." - David Keithly, Associate
Pastor, Union Church of La Harp, IL
