Have you or your church done this? I have been feeling led in this direction for some time now.
The idea started brewing when John Stumbo, president of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, told those of us in the crowd that we need to engage our artists, musicians and storytellers for the sake of the kingdom.
We have been talking about how we would bring together a small group geared toward creative minded people and their families.
It would operate as a normal small group but also provide opportunities for the creatives to brainstorm together and use their gifts to enhance ministries in the church as well as projects outside the church. It would be a great outreach for those outside the church who want to be a part of that type of community.
What would happen if we had creative people adding a creative element to our ministries?
There are a lot of artists out there. In many cases, there aren’t a lot of opportunities for them to apply their gifts in the average church.
Maybe this is a way to do it.
