Asbury Seminary Voices

Global Community United Methodist Church in Columbus, Ohio, takes their motto seriously. Columbus is filled with many cultures, faiths, languages and ethnicities, providing the perfect backdrop for Global UMC to embrace the command in Acts 1:8 to be witnesses for Jesus at home, to their neighbors and around the world.

The church is a mix of Asian, Hispanic, African-American and Anglo heritage.

 “If we truly believe in the good news, regardless of whether they are Syrians or from Mexico or the inner city or the suburbs, they all need to hear and somebody needs to incarnate the good news for them,” Daniel Kim, pastor of Global Community UMC, said.

Gloria Deo School of the Arts

When you think of your little girls in ballet what do you envision? Pink tights? A cute leotard? Tutus? What if they can also be clothed in self-control and strength? What about grace and honor?
When you look for a ballet studio, what are you looking for? Technicality in training and a fun atmosphere? Artistry and exercise? Well Gloria Deo has all of these and more.

Sarah has been teaching ballet for over 9 years and has trained and danced professionally for several years as well. The LORD has blessed her with tremendous talent and a strong desire to glorify God in all ways, especially in dance.  She writes and choreographs original performances that bring Scripture to life and pierce the souls of the audience. This school is so much more than dancing, it is a way of living life to the honor and praise of the One that gives us all movement and music.

We have classes for all ages from 3 years old to 102 years old for women and men. Classes begin January 9th, and the first class is free! The school is at 2140 Wilmore Rd in Nicholasville, KY. For more information or to register for classes, check out our website at Thank you and God Bless!
