MOUNT VERNON—BPC’s drama ministry Glimpses of Truth hosted nationally-recognized theater group, The Jeremiah People, Feb. 8 in the college’s Briscoe Center in Mount Vernon. 

The Jeremiah People, a professional, Christian musical theater group based in Ventura, Calif., spent the afternoon with Glimpses of Truth leading a drama workshop. After sharing a short but “brilliant” program called “The Complete History of the Old Testament in 20 Minutes,” The Jeremiah People worked with BPC’s Glimpses of Truth on some of the college troupe’s skits, giving suggestions and encouragement on the progress the group is making this semester.

The Jeremiah People is commissioned for nine months of the year to take its programs to churches and different groups of young people throughout the country. The members encourage and evangelize to these groups of people.

Glimpses of Truth was formed at Brewton-Parker about five years ago by Dr. Don Wallace, the college’s professor of communication.  The volunteer group performs skits throughout the year, traveling to local churches and presenting their work as a form of ministry.  Glimpses of Truth is student-directed by Corinne Bird, a senior studying communication and psychology.
