Encouraging our faith
today with dramas about
Christian heroes of the past.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.”
THROUGH THE STORIES OF CHRISTIAN HEROES OF THE PAST DEANNA STORFIE WILL ENCOURAGE US TO RUN OUR RACE
RUNNING A RACE
The writer of Hebrews compares our Christian journey to a race that we are ALL running. I don’t think he saw it as a sprint, but more like a marathon! I don’t know about you but marathon’s aren’t easy to finish. It’s so tempting to give up part way through.
CLOUD OF WITNESSES
There have been many out-standing Christians who’ve finished their race and are cheering us on. They endured hardships, difficulties and trials, but persevered. Because they did, it grew their character and strengthened their hope in Jesus and the promises of God.
OUR OWN RACE
We can learn from the race they’ve already run; from the mistakes they made and the victories they had. Their examples of perseverance and faith encourages us to shake off the sin that hinders us and the distractions that side-track, so we can finish our own race.
Why Work With Deanna?
Learning From the Examples of Others
Are you looking for a way to encourage the people in your church or ministry to run their race of faith; a race the Lord intends for them to finish so they can receive their prize (1 Cor 9:24)?
Through my one-person dramas I show audiences how God has been at work, throughout history, in the lives of ordinary people; ordinary people who, with the help of the Holy Spirit, finished their race and are now cheering us on. Their stories encourage us to shake of sin and the things that distract us onto rabbit trails, instead of focusing on the race marked out for us.
Each drama has been carefully researched to capture the history of the time and the mark they left on our world for Christ. Check out images below for more info and their various spiritual themes.
Dramas sure to make audiences LAUGH. CRY. PRAY!
Here’s my STATEMENT OF FAITH
“Captivating!” “An amazing experience!” “Very relevant.” “You did a wonderful job showing us who she was.” “A delight!” “It really blessed us!” “You brought us right back to the cross.” “Our young people were completely engaged.”

How Does It Work?
Because my dramas involve only one person there is very little preparation needed on your part; other than providing a headpiece microphone and a cleared, raised stage approximately 8 feet wide by 6 feet deep. You may also need to provide some simple props like a table, chairs, etc. I also have promotional material in the way of posters, power point and video that you can use for your event.

Click on the Let’s Connect! button anywhere on my website. I’ll answer any of your questions and would love to find out more about your ministry or event.
How Much Does It Cost?
With over 35 years of writing and performing experience you will not be disappointed in the message or quality of the drama. I was trained by Covenant Player, out of Los Angeles, in the early 80’s, where I learned how to share the gospel through drama. My Christian heroes’ stories have been carefully researched to hold true to the history of the time and the mark each one made for the kingdom of God. Let’s connect so that I can discover more about you, your ministry and the event you have in mind. We’ll also discuss the cost involved in inviting me. I try to accommodate all groups, no matter how big or small. You are required to cover my travel costs to your location, meals and accommodations (I prefer people’s homes to hotels).
I’ve been sharing my dramas about Christian ‘heroes of the faith’ since 2006, with over a hundred different churches and their ministries, from a variety of denominations. I appreciate the people that I have met within the body of Christ; many quickly feel like family. They might be the people who host me in their homes, the ministry leaders who work tirelessly in their communities or the people who are encouraged by the stories.
I know that as I research and share the lives of these heroes of the faith, I have been challenged in my own walk with God, right along with my audiences. As a result, for nearly fifteen years, I have been volunteering at my local correctional center. With a small group of Christian women from different churches, we have been using our gifts and abilities to introduce women inmates to the goodness and love of God. We have been blessed to see many come to faith through the years.
