"Whether we realize it or not, art plays an integral role in shaping culture, both in and out of the church. If we are not actively engaging the arts in our worship services, we are missing out on a major opportunity to draw people into the story of God and to worship him with the best we have to offer. This involves more than lining up singers and musicians to play on Sunday morning. An effective arts ministry involves a vision for the role of the arts in the church and a plan for ministering not only through but also to the artists in the church.
This 20-page resource will help you discover how to enhance your worship with art and will also help you find and empower artists in your congregation to make beautiful works for the Lord."
