This panel titled Redesigned Cathedrals: Creativity for the Church and the Church for Creativity with Ryan Lister and Thomas Terry was delivered at The Gospel Coalition’s 2018 West Coast Conference in Fullerton, California.
Isn’t the church where creativity goes to die? Too often this is true. The church has buried creativity’s vital role beneath a landfill of knockoff artistry. But, on the other hand, isn’t creativity where Christianity goes to die? Too often this is true. It seems to have become not a matter of if, but when, artists will leave the church and the faith. In this workshop, hip hop artist Thomas Terry and theologian Ryan Lister shows you that it doesn’t need to be this way. Through practical marching orders, the church can learn how to understand and serve creatives in their congregation, while also helping creatives understand their need for the church and how to serve God’s people with humility and grace. Is your church prepared to minister to the creative generation?
