Drum Ministry

Need a fun event for your church, group, or non-profit that is motivational, beats stress, and promotes healing? My prescription is percussion!

Hi, I’m Dori Staehle. I’m a percussionist and certified drum therapist, so yes, I have the gift of rhythm. I also have spiritual gifts, a certificate in Biblical Counseling from the American Association of Christian Counselors, and I’m a motivational speaker and an Amazon author.

My story and my healing ministry are a result of being miraculously healed after a freak accident that triggered multiple injuries, a concussion, whiplash, depression, and a rare disease. Helping people get unstuck, heal, and move forward became part of my Divine Assignment.

I cannot promise that everyone I work with will be instantly healed. However, I do know that drumming helps people focus, feel better, and find their joy. It also boosts connections, both within groups and individuals. I’ve worked with all ages, including special needs, seniors, and at-risk populations.

This is not African or Shamanic drumming, Reiki, or some type of New Age practice. I’m a Christian and I’m guided by God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Therapeutic drumming and drum therapy also happen to be backed by loads of medical research.

What does a session or event look like?

I provide hand drums for you or your group like those in the above photo. We sit and drum together, starting with some easy beats and rhythms. Then, I’ll add some additional exercises based on the needs of the group or individual.

Each session usually has a theme for discussion, some beats that go with that, and a song to close out with that’s based on the theme or Bible verse. Sometimes, we rock out and sometimes we’ll do something a little mellower. It’s always positive, motivational, easy, and fun.

God didn’t put you on this earth to struggle. He has a purpose and a plan for you and gifts that you are supposed to use. Isn’t it time to unlock all of those?
