“Glorify. (Verb) Acknowledge and reveal the majesty and splendor of God by one’s actions.”
Oxford Living Dictionary
As a Christian, what would you do if you found out there was a performing arts organization in the early stages of development that your love for high-quality productions with your faith in Jesus Christ? You would donate to make it a reality, of course!
Through the media of dance and theatre, Glorify Performing Arts will create professional productions that not only entertain our audiences, but also portray Christian values in an accessible and captivating way. We believe God created art and as we model our lives after the Lord, we should be forging the way in artistic innovation by exploring original ideas creatively and producing with excellence.
Opening in three phases, Glorify Performing Arts (GPA), a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, will become the first professional Christian performing arts center to launch in West Chester Pennsylvania in September 2018. Our goal is to serve the people in our community through our performances, as well as to reach other believers throughout the Delaware Valley region. In Phase One, we will begin operations by casting Glorify Dance Theatre with 8 professional dancers, who will perform contemporary ballet productions. Phase Two will see the organization expanded to include Theatrical Productions, such as classical/current musical theatre, and new, locally authored theatrical works. Finally, in Phase Three we will be opening a pre-professional Education Department where students will be able to achieve excellence in their art form, combining their desire to become artists with their Christian faith.
Our vision for excellence at GPA stems from the building of the Tabernacle in Exodus 35-36 where God calls out the most skilled workers to build and stirs the hearts of His people to donate their most valuable items. YOUR donations to this campaign will help lay the foundation of excellence for all Three Phases. Things like website maintenance, company marketing, and staff development are crucial to the long-term success of GPA. With the launch of Phase One this September, we’ll have insurance and music licensing fees, costume construction costs, theatre rental payments, as well as a plethora of other areas that need funding. Your gift of $100 or more qualifies you to become one of our Cornerstone Promo Year Patrons! (Information about Cornerstone Patrons can be found ).
Please Note: Both credit cards and bank transfers are available to use for donations. If possible, please give through your bank account as this will have the maximum impact on GPA with no fees being eliminated from your donation.
At Glorify Performing Arts, it is our passion to use art to help believers strengthen their faith. As the Artistic & Executive Director of GPA, I am so excited about the ways in which GPA can spark and facilitate dialogues amongst our audience members for how their faith has the potential to impact Christians from West Chester throughout the Tri-State area. YOUR donation launches us one step closer to our goal.
