I've been an artist for as long as I can remember; and I've loved the church - despite her brokenness - for nearly that long. Now more than ever, the church needs artists to reimagine worship and formation, and artists need the church for spiritual support and community. As Executive Director of the Brehm Center for Worship, Theology, and the Arts, I am privileged to work at this intersection.
Artists can help us reimagine The Story of God in congregational life - especially during this season of uncertainty. The great Story found in scripture is much bigger than our hearts and minds can comprehend in a single way, and must be experienced through all capacities of our humanity. Artists can help us embody God's narrative, fostering sanctified imaginations and well-formed worshipers.
The Brehm Center exists to integrate worship, theology, and the arts for the renewal of church and culture. Founded at Fuller Seminary with a generous endowment from Bill and Dee Brehm, the center is in a new phase of growth, bringing the worship and art conversation from research to resources to real life.
Integrating the arts into your church community in meaningful ways takes strategy, relationship, and imagination. I've worked with congregations of all sizes over the past decade, and I would love to walk alongside your team to build a comprehensive strategy for your specific community. Online and in-person consultation opportunities are welcomed. I'd love to hear how your story intersects with God's Story, and how we might bring this intersection to life through the arts.
