C hericia Curtis the writer and director of Soul Purpose is a graduate of University of Texas at Arlington, she majored in speech communications with a minor in Marketing and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She has worked in the field of technology for most of her professional career in various areas of sales and marketing. In her spare time she is very involved in her church, Antioch Christian Fellowship, Corinth Tx, where she has been blessed to exercise her passion. She oversees the ACT Ministry (Antioch Conservatory of Thespians) under leadership of Pastor Christopher J. Respass. The ministry performs original faith based productions written and directed by Chericia Curtis to include: The Star, Soul Encounters, Not So Holy Night, A Week with Jesus, Old Christmas Tree, and a Christmas Night to Remember. She also collaborates with the tenured writer T.K Henderson on many of her projects. Their collaborative efforts to include Soul Purpose have produced inspirational and thought provoking scripts for both stage and film. For the original music, she teams with the very talented songwriter, Syleria Skinner.
She has been involved in theater since the age of ten, performing at many levels: high school, community, church, collegiate, and Off Broadway. She began writing church plays because of the lack of scripts available for a faith based audience. Her passion for Christ was the biggest motivator and it remains that way today. If the Lord says the same, she prays to continue to write and produce content that God will bless and approve.
She currently resides in Highland Village Tx, where she enjoys spending time with her wonderful husband Larry and her most amazing sons, close friends and church family.
