The following two videos…
are from one of our favorite drama teams…
At The Ramp
“The RAMP is a unique youth and conference center located in the heart of Hamilton, Alabama. It is the home of Chosen, a group of thirty young people who travel with Karen Wheaton and minister in drama and dance, and also home to hundreds of other young people who are being dramatically changed by the power of God.
At least six annual youth conferences (Summer Ramp I & II, Winter Ramp I & II, Spring Breakthrough and Fall Ramp) are greatly anticipated regular events that overflow with more than 1,200 young people. No matter what the occasion, the altars are consistently filled with young people turning their backs on sin, mediocrity, drug addiction, alcoholism, abuse, etc., and surrendering their lives to the Lord.
The RAMP offers today’s generation an alternative to the streets and abuses of the world. Everyone is welcome to come and experience the passion, the fire, and the result of their praise ushering in His awesome presence!”
“The Ramp is a ministry of awakening based out of Hamilton, Alabama, where hundreds gather each month from across the nation and world to pursue the real Jesus. We’re loud. We’re aggressive. We hope to jolt the complacent out of stupor and into the reality of God. Our mission is to awaken a generation out of spiritual death and religious complacency, calling them to their individual purpose and corporate responsibility as an offensive army imposing the kingdom of God. Although youth and young adults primarily attend, the Ramp is not just a youth thing; it’s a hunger thing. It’s an awakening thing – it’s for all those in need of an awakening whose desire is to then turn and awaken others.”
“Karen Wheaton is a seasoned Christian minister whose music and preaching has provoked listeners to pursue God in passionate worship for many years.
In 1998 the emphasis of her ministry took a surprising turn as God called her to move back to her hometown of Hamilton, Alabama and to begin working with the youth of the community.
Today, she continues to travel and minister, but her efforts are primarily focused at the Ramp where thousands gather every year to be transformed by the presence of God and equipped to win their cities. Karen has given her life for the vision and mission of awakening. Part of this includes raising up spiritual sons and daughters, weekly teaching students at Ramp School of Ministry and continually developing young men and into the mature believers God has called them to be.”
“‘Chosen’ is a group of young ministers who have set themselves to awaken a generation. They are the Ramp’s ministry team. They work under and alongside Karen Wheaton as spiritual sons and daughters, serving the heart and assignment of awakening. Whether through expressing in dance and drama, preaching and teaching, ministering, or worshiping, they call their generation to radical lifestyles of holiness and consecration. Each of them have a personal story of deliverance from bondage such as suicide, cutting, drugs, pornography, and complacent Christianity. They are now rescued ones seeking to rescue others.”
“We are a dedicated group reaching people for Jesus Christ.
We put God in the front of this ministry
we are His tools being used to glorify Him.”
“Now Behold the Lamb.
The precious Lamb of God.
Born into sin that I may enter in
The Precious Lamb of God.
We celebrate the precious sacrifice of Jesus Christ.
He came into this world humble
And left as the atonement of sins.
Praise be the Name of Jesus Christ.
Forever and ever and ever more!!!!
He is risen from the grave
And set us free from the bondage of sin.
We thank You today, Jesus
For Your perfect sacrifice
You payed a debt that was not Yours.
How thankful am I
Saved by Your wonderful mercy and grace.”
“In a loud voice
they were saying:
‘Worthy is the Lamb,
who was slain,
to receive power
Revelation 5: 6-14
“Then I saw a Lamb,
looking as if it had been slain,
standing at the center of the throne,
encircled by the four living creatures and the elders.
The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes,
which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
He went and took the scroll from the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.
And when He had taken it,
the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders
fell down before the Lamb.
Each one had a harp
and they were holding golden bowls full of incense,
which are the prayers of God’s people.
And they sang a new song, saying:
‘You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because You were slain,
and with Your blood You purchased for God
persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
You have made them to be a kingdom
and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth.’
Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels,
numbering thousands upon thousands,
and ten thousand times ten thousand.
They encircled the throne
and the living creatures and the elders.
In a loud voice they were saying:
‘Worthy is the Lamb,
who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!’
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea,
and all that is in them, saying:
‘To Him who sits on the throne
and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!’
The four living creatures said,
and the elders fell down and worshiped.”
Precious Lamb Of God…You Are Worthy!!
We used to do dance dramas like these. One of my favorites was “Testify to Love.” Our leader, Sherrill is now kicking it with Jesus, the lucky bum. One day we’ll get to dance like this and more for our Audience of One. I long for that day!
Thanks for sharing these videos.
Just like David’s leaping and dancing before the Lord…we’ll be expressing our joy and praise to God. Let’s dance and rejoice here on earth, too!
Every chance I get! My grandkids think I’m nuts – but who cares? 😉
In our family we call it…doing the “Hallelujah Dance!!” Giving God praise for answered prayer, favor, divine intervention, protection…and especially for Who He Is!! Amen!!
