Review for Arts & Entertainment Ministries, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

AEM is a unique ministry. There are other ministries that focus on equipping Christians to live holy lives, and there are of course many organizations to help artists network with each other and improve their craft, but as far as I know, AEM is the only organization that integrates both of these. AEM has been instrumental in encouraging me to be a better artist (musician) and a more mature Christian, and to navigate the sometimes difficult territory of being a follower of Christ and an artist at the same time. I have known AEM founders Joel and Mich Pelsue for ten years, and they are two of the most honest, loving, and passionate people that I've ever met. Just spending an hour with them, you come away inspired to love Jesus and to want to create great art! The "Arts & Entertainment Institute" that they've put together will blow your mind... it's like an advanced degree in art and theology packed into two days, all with a very practical focus. If you're serious about art AND Christianity, I guarantee it will change you.

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

my life: helping me to look at art from a new perspective

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

find someone willing to donate a permanent gallery space! :)

Role:  Board Member & attended small group studies, networked with other artists, performed at and attended art shows.
