The Doctor is In!

There are many in movement ministry today who are "walking wounded." How can we effectively reach others if we have not dealt with our own sicknesses and diseases first? The issue is a spiritual one. Ignorance is not the problem; we are well aware of the issues we face. It's time to stop tolerating perpetual dysfunction amongst our own.

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. We do not have to be perfect to spread the Gospel to others, but we should not be perpetrators. Let's take up our beds and walk!

Many of the wounds in the ministry of dance come from various situations. Some of these include, but are not limited to:

-Internal conflicts between dance ministry members

-Disagreements with Pastoral leadership over the role of the movement ministry in the church

-Intense competitions between dance ministries and larger dance organizations

-Rebellion inside of the dance ministry and its leadership

-Abuse of dance ministers at the hands of leadership

-Cultish practices evolving in the dance ministry realm

-Blacklisting and sorority behavior on the "dance ministry circuit"

-A desire to excel that is driven by self-accomplishment, not Kingdom expansion

-Feelings of inadequacy and abandonment

-Turning a blind eye to rampant sin amongst movement ministers

-Feelings of guilt when leaving a ministry or church
