Calling is not just about what you do. It’s about who you are.
What if being an artist of faith is more about WHO YOU ARE and HOW you create than WHAT you make?
Too many Christians in the arts are living in a no-win situation. They’re serious about their work, committed in their faith – but feeling disjointed and disconnected. In this series, we’ll consider how to integrate the many pieces of you through the three-fold way of calling. And find clarity, confidence, and freedom to truly become who we were created to be, make what we were created to make and do what we were created to do.
