I bet you never thought you’d see me suggesting there is a time to not be creative, but for the church, I’m not suggesting it, I’m saying it outright. There are times, or perhaps places, where we’re not allowed to be creative. When it comes to methods we can be creative as all get out. If it doesn’t involve sin, the sky’s the limit. On the other hand the message of the Bible itself is never subject to creativity. You may deliver the m»

My friend Clint Haley from Provoke Ministries posted a question today that really got me thinking: What training methods do you use that are non-traditional? Sometimes, we need to get creative about our methods before we will achieve creative results. I started to think about the things I have done that have really stretched me creatively and decided to share some of them here to get you thinking about ways you can stretch yourself creatively. 1.»

My friends J. Scott McElroy, Jessie Nilo and others did a great conference on Creative Ministry. Check out some of these comments from the conference. More of this stuff needs to happen. Here’s what they had to say about it: This arts ministry conference was held in the summer of 2012 in two locations (East and West) in Indianapolis and Boise.

The first thing you need to know about creatives should be the most obvious. Creatives must create, it’s in their DNA. They have a knack for seeing a better way and a better world and are passionate about bringing it into existence. For this reason, they tend to struggle with the status quo and the phrase “That’s the way we’ve always done it.” is practically an obscenity to them. Part of ministering to them is to give them an outlet to»

I’ve been mentioning it for months, excerpting it for weeks, but now it’s here. As part of my mission to help churches reach and empower their creatives, I decided to write this short book to give ideas and encouragement of how to meet creative people where they are and help them to be all that they were created by God to be. This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart as I am where I am today because a pastor took the time to»

Most people don’t consider themselves creatives. Pablo Picasso once said “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” If this is true, and I believe with all my heart that it is, then somewhere, maybe deep inside you, is an artist, a creative. You see I believe every child of the Creator God is creative. Maybe not with a brush or a pen or whatever creative tool you may think of as you futilely try to d»

When someone asks me how to reach creatives, probably my number one response is give them a venue to create and show, or perform, their work. This might Include opportunities to share their gifts in the setting of the worship service but let’s face it, not every creation will be a fit for your worship service. It’s okay to ask your creatives to create something to be a fit from time to time, but they will become creatively frustrated if they»

From my upcoming devotional, A Year in Creativity: 
52 Creative Challenges Based on the Word of God While Jesus is the main hero of the Bible, there are many other heroic figures in the pages of Scripture. While none of them is perfect, except Jesus, they exemplify traits many of us would do well to emulate. The faith of Daniel, the leadership of Moses, the courage of Mary and on and on and on. One of my favorite biblical heroes is Joseph son o»
