Creativity and imagination in christian ministry

first round. And that’s the problem. It’s an A grade headache
for most congregations today They want their church, their congregation,
their study group, their ministry to have the x-factor. To be attractive. And it ain’t going to happen
easily. The truth is you can be highly creative in
ministry. But it’s not like the x-factor. It’s not about projecting yourself, it’s about
projecting another. It’s not who you are on stage, it’s who is
the other on the stage with you. It’s not just about being your best possible
self, it’s all about letting others be their best
possible selves. Join me each week as look at designing creativity
into work and hobbies. When we let the Christian imagination of the
other take flight, guess what? Our own imagination takes off and we all become more than we could ever

take the first steps on the way. To help you get started you will see a download
