Stage Right Ministry is a theatre arts ministry, developed and designed to offer our youth and teens another type of creative outlet to better understand, know, and express God's love for his people. Stage Right's mission is to inspire, disciple, and enable our youth to share their spiritual gifts through music and theatre, so that they may lead themselves and others into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.


Stage Right is entering into their 7th season in 2022, with 13 productions under their belt. This group was born in 2015 at Trietsch, with a concept, director and 7 students. We didn't know what our ministry would become, but we knew that God was leading us in a unique direction that we followed and still continue to follow.
