Acts of Renewal


Acts of Renewal Christian Drama Theatre

Our Story:  Carol’s from Boston. Jim’s from North Carolina.  We met in Houston. We were checking each other out in the mirror at a Bible study, til our eyes suddenly met in the mirror.  Whoo.  We dated four years, got engaged twice and everyone was so happy when we finally got married in 1992.

We each have our own story of brokenness and healing. During those early years God was preparing us to speak into marriages and lives by going through the school of hard knocks and coming out on the other side. Grace of God. The Lord also blessed us with two sons who keep life an ever new adventure.

Why did we start Acts of Renewal?  Since our relationship with Jesus Christ is the number one priority in our lives, it made a lot of sense to use our talents doing professional theatre from a Christian world view. After grad school we began touring, performing at conferences, speaking at colleges and church events.

When PBS aired Carol’s one woman show on eating disorders, God used it to open up doors in our ministry. Our style of being real with our audiences and using comedy theatre for both entertainment and visual learning has proved to be a winning combination. So we continue to create programming for God to use to reach hearts for him. We now live in Kentucky and our sons Zach and Zander are just launching. So touring, teaching, parenting and forever learning keeps us full to overflowing with life.

Event Reviews

"Acts of Renewal was a tremendous hit with our College Students & Single Adults! What a refreshing ability to connect with this challenging audience--dealing honestly and humorously with the challenges and frustrations of dating, family and work place relationships, while under girded by sound biblical application."

— Baptist Church, Asheville, NC 

"After having Acts of Renewal perform at our 19th annual fundraising banquet for the CPC, the continual refrain that I heard was, "this was the best banquet I have ever been to...and I've been to a lot of banquets!" From the quality of the performances to the pace of the evening, Jim and Carol brought a unique presentation that was uplifting, challenging and powerful! I may never go back to a keynote speaker again!

— Community Pregnancy Clinic of Simi Valley/Moorpark 

"An exceptional speaker. Her messages and sharing of her heart was an inspiration to our conference retreat.  I can't express enough how much she touched our lives."
