The Harrisburg Christian Performing Arts Center’s (HCPAC) Board of Directors is actively seeking diverse individuals that are passionate about impacting today’s youth and young adults and are willing to help guide the organization as it moves forward and grows to impact more students in Central PA.

HCPAC board members have the distinct privilege of working collaboratively to guide and support a youth organization that has been impacting youth in Central PA since 1962. Our mission is to produce quality theater while training youth and young adults with skills for the stage of life. We believe that placing Jesus center-stage is the most important element of being prepared for the stage of life. We strive to create an environment that allows our young people to discover a relationship with Jesus while loving them regardless of their response.

HCPAC needs you if you are able to agree to our statement of faith, are passionate about impacting today’s young people and are willing to grant access to your personal and professional network for fundraising purposes. Board members are asked to participate in committee work, attend theater productions, assist in spreading the word about HCPAC in their faith community and the community at large. HCPAC board members, on average, commit ten hours per month to these activities.
