Blessing, supporting, & equipping artists in body, soul, & spirit


 

The Faith & Arts ministry of Christ Church is a vibrant group in which artists find both encouragement and challenge in the pursuit of community life together.

The vision for the Faith & Arts ministry is to encourage the spiritual growth of artists and support them as they endeavor to integrate their faith and their calling to create. Regular gatherings include movie nights, dinners, art-making events, and presentations from guest artists of all media, including the visual arts, performing arts, and writing.

The Faith & Arts ministry has collaborated on many pieces and media of art through the years, including devotional guides for Lent, Advent and Christmastide; encaustic art pieces for the church body; plays; multimedia presentations, and many other works.

If you are an artist, an art lover, or a lover of artists, we invite you to join our Faith & Arts community at Christ Church. For more information, or to sign up for our email list, contact us at info@christchurchofaustin.org.

The Faith&Arts ministry is guided by a three-fold purpose:

1) to shepherd the artists of Christ Church into maturity in their artistic vocation and as followers of Christ, to become who God created them to be;

2) To lead the people of Christ Church into purposeful engagement with the arts, in order to deepen our experience with God, our culture, and humanity, and therefore build up the body of Christ to love and serve others;

3) and to contribute to the flourishing of our city and the greater culture through thoughtful artistic engagement, believing that the honest portrayal of truth and beauty is part of God’s redemptive work on Earth.
