The Arts and Evangelism
The arts/creativity is a significant Kingdom tool for our church.
"I believe God is stirring up, there's some things in your church that have to do with the arts, that God wants to begin to stir up, that have to do with the arts, that have to do with performance, that have to do with aesthetic things rather than just basic things. And out of these I believe that there are some people who have some superb talent, and some superb gifting, who can take that and use it as a means of evangelism in a very indirect way so it's kind of like an ability to do things that will draw people; concerts; I don't know, those kind of things that will draw people and be a ground to bring people closer in. And I think there's a lot of undeveloped gifting in the arts that God wants to really put a focus on...I just believe that Holy Spirit will cause there to come something out of music and worship that will be very unique in your community. And actually will be a drawing card, particularly for those people from the arts that I was talking about." Keith Hazel, 2010.
"I felt like God says, art, poetry, culture, we might define it as. It’s to be a mark of this church. Actually influencing culture by producing it." Adrian Horner, January 2014
