Sponsors who have brought Acts of Renewal to perform at their church event or church retreat have been saying a lot.
"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."
Sam McLamb, Single Adult & College Pastor, Biltmore Baptist Church, Asheville, NC
Thank you very, very much, Jim and Carol, for ministering so wonderfully at our church retreat. The evaluation forms overwhelmingly gave you the highest marks possible and most said it was the best program in our twenty plus years of having this retreat. You are gifted teachers of God's truth and you do it in a unique style that is refreshing. We so appreciate you and wish you God's richest blessings as you continue to serve the Kingdom.
Steve Hagaman, Director of Retreat Programming, Montreat Presbyterian Church
"The Word comes alive through the inspired, engaging ministry of Acts of Renewal. Through the gifts of Carol and Jim, people know God and Jesus in a sweeter, more intimate relationship and their lives are enriched beyond measure. Carol and Jim and their ministry are simply outstanding!"
The Reverend Laurens A. Hall, D.D., Rector, St. John the Divine, Houston, TX
"Through their drama ministry, Carol and Jim provide the Church with powerful tools for evangelism, teaching and emotional healing. The messages in their dramas hit the issues dead-on. There is no skirting around the truth with their presentations. It has been my joy to work with them on several occasions and I have witnessed first hand, the work God is doing in and through them."
Dana Bryant, Minister of Worship, Calvary Church, Charlotte, NC
"Powerful...gripping...totally engaging theatre. As an audience member, a full range of emotions from laughter to tears. Rarely have I seen an art medium so effective at clearly communicating Biblical truth."
Reverend Keith Greer, Carlysle Congregational Church, Carlisle, MA
"I highly recommend “Acts of Renewal” Jim and Carol Anderson Shores to any church group. Their fresh wit kept our 197 older adults laughing to the point of tears at our Annual Valentine Party of St. Simons United Methodist Church. Jim and Carol’s strong Christian witness lifts up the humor in life and the need not to take ourselves too seriously and splash a little joy and positive faith in the direction of those who need a FAITH-LIFT. Any United Methodist Church would be blessed to have them in their church for a weekend family retreat or a one day performance."
Rev. J. Don Proctor, Minister to Older Adults, St. Simons United Methodist Church, St. Simons Island, GA
"Carol brings an energetic, entertaining, and captivating message through drama that transforms the hearts and minds young and old alike. Her work is firmly grounded in biblical wisdom and understanding and her passion for the Lord is obvious. Carol allows God to use her for His great good!"
Brenda McDowell, Director of Women's Ministry, Hickory Grove Baptist Church, Charlotte, North Carolina
"Can you believe people are STILL talking about how wonderful the Valentine’s banquet was? Our committee met for a debriefing – out of that, we were wondering whether you and Jim would consider returning for another performance next year? Our Sr. Pastor called it a home-run, a win, the level of excellence this church should be about. Again, you guys were awesome!"
Deanne Groseclose, Director of Women's Ministry, First Assembly of God, Winston Salem, NC
"Thank you so much for sharing your incredible talent with all the women at the Wheaton Bible Church Christmas Teas. You all were awesome. I know God used you to draw women's hearts to Christ. I marvel at the gifts God has blessed you with and pray you will continue to be used by the Holy Spirit to draw people to Himself."
Nancy Barton, Director, Wheaton Bible Women's Ministries, Wheaton, IL
