We’re thrilled you’re considering serving with the School of Creative Arts at Real Life!
Real Life Ministries exists to reach the world for Jesus Christ one person at a time. This does not stop when it comes to those who identify as artists and creatives. We are endeavoring to reach outside of our walls by providing Christ-centered community for artists and creatives of all ages and stages to both discover and develop their craft. We believe that as artists and creatives connect to Christ and one another, they will go deeper in stewarding their craft for the glory of God and the service of others.
If this is something you are passionate about, please complete this form
to the best of your ability.
Who Are We Looking For?
We want to make it clear that we are not renegade artists seeking to use the church to advance our own spheres of artistic influence. Rather, we are artists who willingly submit to the headship of Jesus Christ, seeking to serve His Church. We want to cultivate humble, equipped leaders of God’s people, who model deep levels of godly character and steward high levels of competency in our craft.
We believe both character and competency can and should be developed alongside one another for the following reasons:
If someone is high in competence but low in character they are unlimited in the harm they can do operating in their flesh.
If someone is high in character but low in competency they are limited in the good that God can do through them.
If someone is low in character and low in competency they are, well… just irrelevant.
We don’t want to be any of the above people. We want to be those who are high in character as well as high in competency because we believe that we will then be unlimited in the good that God can do through us!
We want to faithfully steward the abilities that God has collectively given us, renew our minds with God’s Word, and constantly surrender our hearts to God’s plan. We recognize that our chapter in the story won’t last forever, and so we are striving to pour our lives and experience into others so that the coming generation will boldly create for the glory of God. We are seeking to be disciples who recognize that creativity is a gift received from God, and we want to use our creative gifting to serve the church, as well as draw those outside the four walls of the church building into the amazing story of God!
Is God calling you to be involved? If you feel that this might be the ministry for you to be involved in please begin by clicking the button below to explore different options for serving with the School of Creative Arts. We have areas of service that do require experience, but we also have ways for you to get involved even if you don’t have a lot of creative experience but want to help us in our endeavor to reach outside of our walls by providing Christ-centered community for artists and creatives of all ages and stages to both discover and develop their craft.
If not, thank you for your honest self-assessment. We are all in different stages in our relationship with the Lord and in the pursuit of developing the giftings Christ has entrusted to each of us. This specific ministry might not be something God is leading you to in this season, but he has surely called us all to play some part in the body. As God’s word says in 1 Peter 4:10-11, "God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.”
