Growth

"So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ. From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work."

~ Ephesians 4:11-16
 
 
 
There are three ways that 1heart Arts Ministries primarily focuses on growth:
  1. Growth in Christ
    We seek to put Christ first in each and everything we do.  One of our most powerful programs is our Artist Bible Study, where we learn about what God says to us as artists and as Christians through His Word.  We also start each and every program event with prayer and/or worship. In our full-length drama productions, practices begin with at least 15 minutes of devotional study followed by prayer. We believe all is done through the power of God and the only way to do supernatural things in our art, is to stay connected to the Source, Jesus Christ.

  2. Growth in Craft
    No matter what age we are or how long we've been performing, God always has more to teach us about our art.  Also, something that we have discovered, is that God often not provides growth in our current passions, but He sparks new areas of expression to come forth through our devotion to growth in what He has already given us.  (Matthew 25:21)
  3. Growth in Experience
    Once we have committed to growing in Christ and our craft, we then can grow through our experiences.  God will bring the perfect opportunties our way that will allow us to grow and stretch into the person He has designed us to be.  It is through these experiences that He will refine and shape us, not only as an artist, but also as a Christian.
