The Biblical Storytelling Team is part of the Christian Education Ministry of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. Membership in the team ranges from children to seniors, with 15-20 tellers participating in annual epic tellings.
Music, monologues, and minimalist scenery are integrated into the epic tellings which include non-team members when appropriate to the setting. These are the epics told by the Mount Zion Baptist Biblical Storytelling Team thus far:
- 2006 Passion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, John 18-21
- 2007 Infancy and Childhood Narratives of Jesus
- 2008 The Story of Ruth
- 2009 Passion Narrative of Jesus Christ, John 11-16 (excerpts) and John 17-19
The team holds a yearly Biblical Storytelling Reunion at which members tell biblical and other stories. The scriptures have also been told a few times in Sunday morning worship.
