What is “worship arts” you ask? Well, it involves using the fine and performing arts to make worship more real and meaningful. It requires creativity, technology and innovation to effectively communicate the love of Christ. Gone are the days of a preacher shouting from a pulpit. In an era of over-stimulation, the church must actively find new ways to tell the same story. This fresh take on old classics allow the congregation to see the story with fresh eyes and possibly retain some of what was said during the service.
Worship is no longer about sitting and standing. Through the arts, we are able to experience God in the greatest, most captivating way. He deserves our very best, and we should strive to express His greatness, love, and wonder during worship. As a worship artist, it is our responsibility to present the Gospel of Christ and the truth of God’s Word in a compelling and relevant way.
All it takes is a simple shift of thinking. Start thinking of what worship could be, and live into the possibilities.
