I am an older pastor with a long time interest in the art and music. Over the years I have sought to support emerging artists and organizations integrating Christian faith and artist excellence. Arts and Entertainment Ministry (AEM) has been an easily mission to get behind. The experienced leadership and sharp teaching edge speaks for itself, but the ministry serves a unique role in nurturing people of faith engaged in an industry that often challenges their integrity. The relational support and accountability this supplies has filled a major void in connecting those desiring to enter vocations in the world of art and entertainment. AEM functions in a priestly role to the church, where artistic sensibilities and pursuits are not always properly understood or appreciated. In the time of our association my enthusiasm and confidence in this ministry has only grown. Our church supports this ministry because it provides a partnership with quality Christian leaders and artists who are infusing wisdom and integrity into an industry that influences the entire world.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My favorite event is the annual Night of Arts and Entertainment. The evening features artistic displays that covered the spectrum from Sculpture to poetry and weaving to rap. Each exhibit is hosted by the creating artists who interact with individuals and then are gathered together to speak and take questions from the whole gathered assembly.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would hire an executive administrator to do nothing but write grant proposals, raise funds, and build liaisons with private schools and colleges that promote and integrate Christian faith and creative arts and expression.

This ministry is on the cutting edge of teaching how to create professional art from a Christian worldview. Joel and Michelle Pelsue really understand the importance of art in our culture and the importance the Bible gives art. They also are not afraid to tackle the tough issues that are unique to artists. They tackle these from a very balanced but Biblical perspective. I've been so encouraged by this ministry to see the importance of my own art and to see the responsibility I have as a creator of culture.
