Arts & Entertainment Ministries
January 31, 2011

I am a professional screenwriter. Arts and Entertainment Ministries is a dynamic organization that supports artists with a particular worldview. For a period of time I attended meetings held by Joel Pelsue where several of us got together to talk about our lives from both a professional and personal perspective. Here we could be quite open about what some of our struggles were. Being with like-minded artists, who were solid and committed professionals, and knowing that these individuals simply "got it" when you talked about some particular challenge you were going through, was refreshing. Joel, who has a music background himself, understands our journeys. This was one of the great things that I appreciated about him. Every artist, whatever their specific area of focus is, and whatever their specific worldview might be, has moments where they feel quite isolated. Finding a supportive group can help deal with this sense of isolation. Arts and Entertainment Ministries was that place for me.

Joel is extremely solid and professional in what he does. An incredible heart to serve people in the arts. It appears that he struggles each year with trying to get the necessary financing to keep going at the level that he desires. He needs strong, supportive donors with a regular, ongoing, commitment.
