Woe to the dancer who does not have a burden for ministry. There are many whose lives are hanging in the balance, and some of our fellow laborers are still dancing for dancing's sake. There are enough concerts, programs, and dance-a-thons! We are in a very pivotal moment in time and must rely on the Lord to direct the songs, movements, garments, and select the ministry platforms.
Dance ministry for many looks exactly like the entertainment business. Some movement artists employ managers who seek to get them "booked" on as many programs as possible. There are others who will solely dance for a check in the bank. Others have the mindset that if others do not "perform" up to certain standards, then they are to be dropped.
God is calling His ministers forth! Now is the time for Kingdom manifestation! We need the Lord now more than ever before. As we prepare movement pieces, we must also remember that there are many who do not know the Lord in His desire to meet every need as Provider. These needs stretch far beyond material things. In the time that we are living in there is a need for peace, healing, health, sanity, and wholeness. The Lord knows exactly what we need to accomplish His ministry. When we minister to the needs of His people, we are truly showing His character as living epistles.

And let our people also learn to maintain good works, to meet urgent needs, that they may not be unfruitful.
1 John 3:17 (NKJV)
But whoever has this world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him?
