The Underground Church in North Hollywood, California is a wonderful church that utilizes the powerful influence of art to worship and share the love of God with the world. In January, ZOE Thailand had the privilege of hosting members from Underground’s Word in Motion Dance Company for ministry opportunities all over Chiang Mai.
The team was invited to perform at schools, children’s homes, an urban slum outreach, and even a youth correctional facility, which gave them the chance to share the gospel and introduce Jesus Christ into lives of more than 800 kids! The Underground team featured a professional singer and dancers, DJ, and skateboarder who utilized their talents to reach out to adults, teenagers, and little ones alike. The performances were wildly successful, and there was always a group of kids at the end of the service showing off their moves and learning new break-dancing and hip hop techniques.
ZOE is so incredibly thankful for ourpartnership with The Underground Church and for their creativity in ministry. While this was Underground's first visit to ZOE Children’s Homes, we hope they know they will always be welcome to return and share their gifts to the youth of Thailand.
Stay tuned for a later blog that talks about all the classes that were taught to our kids at ZOE.
