Creative Conference 2019

It is He who reveals the profound and hidden things. Daniel 2:22. We believe we are all created in God’s image, we have been designed to create, and that in our expression of creativity God is glorified!

The conference will showcase a variety of creative expressions from poets, writers, musicians, photographers, artists, dancers, and many others in between! It will run over two days and will provide an opportunity for a gathering of creatives from around the city, and the nation, to be equipped and inspired.

We will unpack Creative Moments in the worship.


Art plays a huge roll in the creative church environment. In this talk Nathan will be exploring the church’s role in creating art, how art can function in a church setting and the Christian’s mandate to impact culture through art.

Spoken Word 

Spoken Word is the creative process whereby written words are performed for an audience using rhythm, improvisation, word play etc. Just another tool to creatively express God’s word.

Item Moments 

These little punctuation moments in our Church Services offer a creative expression which ministers to people in the form of music, song, dance, painting to name a few.

We will unpack Production areas in church.  

Stage & Lighting

It’s not just smoke and mirrors, stage and lighting form a huge part of the creative church process. Learn about quick tips, easy processes and various programs to make your experience smoother and easier.

AV & Production

To stay relevant, the church needs to move with the times. AV and Production form a large part of what that looks like.


Media From video to photography to online platforms. Podcasts and Youtube Channels – Media continues to drive a creative channel within the church context.

We will unpack your church identity and Content.


Who are you as a church? What is your story? How best can your identity be communicate and presented?


Content is King – When content branches off as a key touchpoint from your church’s brand, a holistic perspective is expressed and an authentic experience is created. How is content created and what drives it?

Creative Leadership

The church is called to be a reflection of Gods creative heart. But why is this so important in the culture we live in & how do you get the creatives involved?
