The Artistic Outreach Weekend Workshop is about reaching out to the lost using art of all kinds, styles of all kinds, from gifted people of all backgrounds, but defintely from Gods word using His word. Ive spent my life observing arts effect on people when it is used by Godly people and ungodly people and Ive focused the last decade on how God has used it to show people who He is.
I am amazed and nearly shamed at how the church has misunderstood Gods teachings on art and how He wants the church to view/use it. What I have learned is exciting and powerful. It should affect those who have been heavily involved in missions/outreach and those who have been sitting on the sidelines thinking that they havent any skills/gifts that would be effective in outreach.
The multimedia presentation has a full color workbook for participants. Then, there is a practical project from four choices. The host assembly picks one from those four choices, so, then, after the presentation, those who participate in the practical project will learn a more focused technique as well as have some time to play and practice using what they have just learned to be effective in outreach. Its really fun and simple. [Usually, the things God does through us are just that, fun and simple.]
-- Romans 12:3-8
For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you. Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a mans gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully.
