Blessed International’s Creative Arts Ministry (CAM) is a multi-media and multi-genre ministry that currently focuses on:
- Supporting diverse expressions of worship and creativity in Spirit & Truth
- Raising up and nurturing Kingdom Artists in the areas of dance, creative writing, the visual arts, and songwriting/production
- Initiating and managing collaborative arts projects and productions that transform arts and media culture
- Sharing the Love, Truth and Power of God through innovative and Holy Spirit-inspired art to encourage the Body of Christ and spread the Good News through outreaches
Current Ways to Become Involved:
1. Sunday Worship Offering Presentations
Sunday offerings are an opportunity for Blessed family members to share their creative gifts and talents as an act of thanksgiving and praise to God. Whether sharing a poem, original song, or prophetic dance, we encourage each person to spend time before the Lord, co-creating with Holy Spirit to bring a gift of Love pleasing unto God. Review Guidelines here.
2. Worship Artists
Blessed currently has five worship teams composed of musicians, visual artists, and dancers. As a worship artist, you will join as a member of one of the teams for live worship painting, drawing, dancing, or other artistic mediums during Sunday worship services. You will also have the option to join team sets at the House of Presence for All Nations (HOPFAN).
3. Arts Evangelism
We have partnered with St. City Session and In Rhythm With Him urban dance ministry every first Saturday of every month to share the Good News and the Love of Jesus Christ through prophecy, words of knowledge, healing prayer, and street arts at the Santa Ana Artwalk. If you have an artistic ability and a heart for street evangelism, come join us! Current opportunities include face painting, on-the-spot prophetic drawings, breakdancing, and spoken word at the Artwalk, but we are always open to other creative ways of art evangelism!
4. Arts Workshops
We currently do not have any Arts Workshops scheduled. However, if you are an artist, have a passion for God in the Arts & Media, and have experience teaching and/or leading workshops in creative writing, spoken word, visual arts, dance, acting/drama, etc. and would be interested in leading one with us, send your resume and a brief cover letter/description of the type of workshop you could offer to firstname.lastname@example.org..
5. Arts Projects & Collaborations
If you have an interesting art project that is in line with our heart for the arts, evangelism and God’s Kingdom, or if you are interested in volunteering as an artist or helper for any current & future arts projects, we would love to hear from you!
