Welcome to Dancing With My Father Ministry. The performing arts ministry is a welcome place for artists to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ through dance, song, spoken word, music and musical theatre.

For over 15+ years under the auspices of Bishop Dr. Douglas Woodall and Overseer, Lady Selena Woodall and Choreographer, Renee McWilliams, DWMF and Worship have carved a space for themselves as the go-to dance ministry to present Christ professionally, effectively in multiple genres. Worships has ministered throughout the 5 boroughs at a variety of churches, recorded 2 Christmas Celebrations on QPTV, toured with Dr. Richard Hartley ministering in Washington DC, Connecticut and Virginia, shared the platform with Hezekiah Walker at the Walker Memorial Baptist Church’s Centennial Anniversary and twice at Carnegie Hall.
