Practical creative ideas and inspiration for the arts in the local church.

Imagine if the local church became known as a place to experience creativity, transcendence, and beauty.

Hundreds of years ago churches were, in many ways, centers for these experiences. Somehow, over time we’ve abdicated that role. Now, many churches have a growing desire to nurture their artists and explore the creative arts.

The Creative Church Conferences are forums for ideas and practices that can take artists and churches to new levels of glorifying God through the arts.

Creative leaders from several movements and denominations will share visionary ideas and practical applications for nurturing creativity in the local church. Attendees are encouraged to share during panel discussions and open forums.

And we’ve built in times of creative refreshing, with the always-open Creative Room, personal prayer ministry and Prayer Art, a Sacred Space Experience and a special field trip.

During the conferences we offer nearly two dozen sessions and workshops on topics such as:

  • loving people through art
  • thriving as an artist in the church
  • developing arts community
  • facilitating wonder
  • the arts and healing
  • partnering with God in your creativity
  • leading artists
  • releasing creativity in your congregation
  • and much more

This is not just a conference for techies. This is not just another conference for musicians. The Creative Church Conferences are true creative arts conferences that embrace many art forms. They are designed to nurture creativity and spark inspiration in you…and your congregation.
