General Information

Drama resources to be used for worship, discipleship and outreach is what Lillenas Drama is all about. If you?d like to find out more about our ministry, visit the About Us section.

Lillenas Drama is dedicated to offering a variety of resources that include not only Sketches and Plays, but also Production Resources that help with organization and preparation.

For solo artists, we offer a variety of Monologues, and we even have developed Worship Resources that have been tested in a variety of worship settings. Try also our Readers Theatre resources and plays specifically written for Dinner Theatre.

You have a passion for arts ministry, and Lillenas Drama shares your passion. Our quarterly Lillenas Drama Newsletter and monthly e-mails through the Lillenas Drama Ministry Service provide the latest word on resources, what others are doing in drama ministry, and provides you with product specials and scripts to aid your ministry.

We?ve identified the support and encouragement that networking with other artists often offers. Visit Drama Networking for a place to post your ideas, ask questions, and offer ministry advice to others.
