A THEMATIC GATHERING AT [email protected]: GOD AND ART – REDEEMING ART FOR CHRIST

Our God is infinitely creative and an artist without peer. Join a panel of ardent followers of Christ who are also artists, as they speak on the theme of redeeming art for Christ.

The topics covered include:

  • Christian art history and impact
  • What happened to art by Christians and the decline
  • Art and technology – the good, the bad & the ugly
  • Redemptive art – implications for Gospel outreach, transforming life and redeeming society
