Publisher's Description

What will you do with the powerful gift of art? 

It's a question for every artist.  It's also a question for the church.  And while both groups might come up with different answers, God offers a remarkable invitation that encompasses both and enriches the Kingdom at the same time.  Life is filled with the creativity of God. From the rich colors of sunset to the evocative sounds of music, our world displays His infinite imagination. As God's children, our Creator offers us a remarkable invitation:
(c) to enrich His Kingdom through our talents.
(d) a divine collaboration with Him to enrich the church through creativity.

Yet often the desire to merge ministry with the arts seems to inspire more questions than creativity. Do I have talents to offer? Can God use my specific gifts? Is there even room for the arts in today's church?    

Yes!

Cindy West presents an inspiring challenge for artists and the church to collaborate for His glory. As the director of worship arts at Woodmen Valley Chapel in Colorado, Cindy draws from her rich experience as an innovator in connecting artistry with ministry. Inside you'll find insights on

  • Discovering and nurturing your unique talents
  • Finding your role in creative ministry
  • Developing a worship arts program in your church

Most of all, you'll be encouraged to say yes to the creative collaboration of a lifetime.

    This is amazing! SO much more than a surface book on various arts in the church. Cindy goes to our soul core and asks all the relevant questions in order to fully understand what we're called to do with our art. Some of it is painful but necessary. She has been brave in revealing her experienced and weaknesses to help us. I have a new outlook on and appreciation for my and others' talents.
