I am a gallery owner and have put on many higher end shows in the South Bay area. I consider myself a strong critic of fine art, particularly Christian art and for the most part, I have not experienced a high degree of skill and marketing in the Christian art community until I became involved with Arts and Entertainment Ministries. Joel, Michelle and their art jury do a very skillful job of weeding through the Christian art community to find the artists that are not only very talented, but also represent a broad spectrum of art medium. They are great facilitators in taking the message from the artists, organizing the "story", and putting on events that bring the public into the heart of the bigger picture. They do it with excitement, dynamism and depth. Let me emphasize depth....Joel is a deep communicator himself, and he understands that the culture is looking for honest, balanced, intelligent conversation.
They are not just 'doing art shows' , but forming a foundation of compelling point of views that incorporate the expression of the art world. Part of this foundation is the parallel addition of their Institute. Some people would balk at spending 2 days listening to a 'bible study' or professorial expose of art in our culture... I for one was one of those people. But I thought well enough of Joel and MIchelle to risk the time, and realize now that it was one of the most valuable 2 days of collective information and interacting with other artists that I could have spent.
On a pragmatic level, Joel and Michelle are very organized and extremely competent administrators. This makes their events satisfying to go to from that point....you are not dragged to death!
I would have given them 5 stars, but they are still in the growth stage. Their marketing plan is well-balanced and well thought out, so I expect to see large impacts on whole groups of professionals particularly.

I have been to two of their annual " Eve of the Artist" gatherings. I saw painted art, music, short artistic movies, humorists, and story tellers. The event has a particular metaphysic; that Christianity is true and fits the facts of reality. So all the art methods I saw to express each ones craft, that evening, represented that faith and the evidence they see which gives them a wide birth of confidence to communicate their art.

The Arts and Entertainment Ministries do a fantastic job integrating faith with art and having a very postive impact on art / artists who want to express God's love through various art mediums.



It is a fantastic ministry to say the very least.
