Piercing Word is a group of theatre professionals who are passionate about coming alongside Christian Leaders to help them engage their people with the Word of God. We do this by performing Scripture in dramatic and musical presentations that are word-for-word from the ESV Bible and providing resources on how to better memorize and study the Bible. Piercing Word is a full-time, non-profit theatre ministry based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and most of our ministry takes place within a two-hour radius of Lancaster, with occasional regional tours of the United States. We perform for churches, conferences, colleges, and special events as well as retirement communities, homeless shelters, and more!
