Manna Ministries was founded and is run by Gary and Jaime Crick who are registered Full-time Christian workers with the charity Stewardship .
The long term Vision of Manna Ministries is to own a centre where the Arts are accessible to all regardless of financial status or physical limitations. A centre of excellence providing classes in all genres of Music, dance and drama and musical theatre and the expressive art forms of the visual arts. A place where classes are held for children and young people and families in the community. Until such time as this becomes reality, we will provide these classes in the community venues we hire to run the performing arts academies.
To produce musical theatre shows to the community that has a message in the musicals written and to allow every child a chance to perform and to gain experience on the stage. Performed by the academies within the ministry in the areas they are based.
To outreach to our community in the form of Media through Christian Films and those with a message of moral or good character – providing family entertainment and cinema old fashioned style. To outreach In any other way in which the Lord allows us, whereby using the giftings grown within the music and media areas of the ministry to bless our community and the world.
Manna Ministries and Manna Academy are a small part of the bigger picture and dream we have for Manna being a registered charity.
We rely on donations to do all we do. Without your help, we could not provide lessons to children in the Creative arts. We do not charge the families for lessons at the academy but rely on the families paying what they can afford weekly.
We have the vision to see all children, regardless of the financial status of their family, or health or learning difficulties or diagnosis to be able to grow in a family atmosphere in strength and confidence and get a chance to perform on stages that have excellence stamped across them.
This gives the children of Manna Academy/Manna Theatre Company all over the nation a chance to have experiences they would not normally have because Manna believes in removing those barriers that may hinder.
As Founders and Christian Workers we the Crick family do not take any financial re- numeration from the charity in any way and rely on People Partnering with our family for the work we do as a couple.
