and Teah ThomsonPersonal Ministry Profile
Teah Thomson anticipates sharing God's message of love and hope to Ugandans through drama and music. The performing arts are a universal language. If someone can see and hear a message, it can communicate in a powerful way. Teah plans to use drama and music as tools to convey biblical truths.
Teah can never remember not trusting in the Lord, because her sister led her to Jesus Christ at an early age. Teah knew that her eternal destiny was secure because she was trusting alone in the substitutionary death and resurrection of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9 and 2 Corinthians 5:21).
Throughout her childhood and young adult years, Teah enjoyed ministering to people as well as developing her skills in the arts through church drama and music presentations, worship leading, camp counseling and international student ministry. Teah also taught drama and music (including writing the curriculum) to children in grades 1 - 7th on a fulltime basis, for four years at a secular summer camp.
In May 2006, Teah graduated from Cedarville University in Ohio with a degree in theatre and minors in music and Bible. Teah is now preparing to use drama and music in Uganda as tools to reach others with the gospel and encourage believers in their walk with Christ. She desires to learn the language and culture of the Ugandans she will be working with before beginning to use the arts in connection with local churches. Teah would like to train children and adults to perform relevant biblical messages using drama and music so that they can in turn teach and lead others to use the performing arts in ministry. After the believers are equipped and comfortable creating and performing messages by themselves, Teah would like to start the training process again with other believers.
