Imagine if the local church became the place in culture to experience beauty, imagination, creativity and transcendence.
It is possible.
Toward that end, there’s a growing desire in churches to begin developing arts programs and ministries. Many are recognizing that God is calling us to integrate the arts and artists into our worship and outreaches. But most churches around the world don’t currently have an arts ministry or programs, though there are talented artists in their congregations. If God has been nudging you, speaking to you about incorporating the arts into your church, this section can help you along the path. You’ll find “Materials and Ideas”, the foundational article, “How to Start and Arts Ministry in Your Church” and more.
You’re also invited to contact our Director, J. Scott McElroy for specific guidance, consulting and coaching opportunities. scott (at) thenewr.org
