FLOW CREATIVE ARTS CONFERENCE

April 2017 | 11 am est | online stream

 

Why do you create?

Seriously, pause here and consider why you create.

Because you have to?

Because you want to?

Because you’re paid to?

Because you were made to?

In the work you do as a church creative, it’s easy to lose the wonder of how a creative God creates creative people to create.

And while there are hundreds of good and valid reasons to create, we sometimes lose touch with the sole reason—maybe even the soul reason—we were made to create.

And when you lose sight of that deeper reason, you lose flow. You miss out on an unending supply of creativity.

Even worse, you miss out on using your particular gifts for the specific reason God gave them to you.

If you’ve forgotten what it means to create with intention …

If you create more for a paycheck than a purpose …

If you’ve lost your flow …

This is the conference for you. The Flow Creative Arts Conference will help you rediscover, reconnect, and recalibrate your creative life to its Source. 

To catch a glimpse of the Flow Conference experience, watch a sample session below -

The Boring Shortcut To Better Creativity
Church creatives seldom appreciate the benefits of systems and processes, but what if such self-imposed constraints are exactly what you need to rediscover your creative flow and begin producing art that matters? In “The Boring Shortcut to Better Creativity,” Pro Church Tools CEO Brady Shearer will help you discover why having a routine is the fastest path to creative genius.

The Practicality of Telling Your Story
“Story” may be an overused buzzword today, but its effectiveness to motivate is unrivaled (e.g. the Bible). Yet many churches still aren’t using their stories for maximum impact. In “The Practicality of Telling Your Story,” West Ridge Church Creative Arts Pastor Phil Bowdle will help you identify, produce, and share stories that will motivate your church to live out its mission and vision.

Jonathan Malm Founder - Sunday Magazine

Finding the Third Option
A fight-or-flight response is a valuable tool for escaping dangerous situations, but it’s a horrible way to respond to complex problems. When we reject the default first options and find the hidden options, we can begin tapping into God’s creativity. This session talks about what the third option looks like as well as practical ways to find it.
