Well I am trying to help churches to do the same thing with my new presentation The Creative Church Workshop. It’s a day-long workshop to help church leaders to minister to the creatives in their congregations and to empower them to use their gifts to serve the Lord. It’s also going to be a great day to empower the creatives themselves (of all disciplines) as we explore ways they can use those gifts in the church and the world beyond.
The workshop runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It includes teaching, hands on activities and more. Topics we will explore include:
Creativity in worship, teaching and outreach
Ministering to creatives
Making your church a nurturing environment and a safe place to fail
Creative ideas you can put to work in your church
The workshop is presented by Dave Weiss. He is an artist, author, creativity blogger, ordained minister and communicator. He is passionate about spreading the Gospel and building the body of Christ by helping churches unleash the God given gifts of their congregations. He currently serves as pastor of creative arts at Ephrata Church of the Brethren.
