Invest in Your Passions

posted Oct 27, 2012, 6:50 PM by Susannah Francis
So, you have discovered what you are passionate about and started to explore those areas. Now what?  Pray. We recommend earnest prayer for God to lead you to the next step of your journey. 

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. ~ Matt. 7:7-8

These may be some options to consider:  
  1. Take Lessons
    One thing that we heard repeatedly in workshops is to continue to grow as an artists. At the AMTC SHINE events we have attended, it was stressed by numerous professionals that you must always continue to grow as an artist and they recommend to stay in lessons.  We are blessed to know a number of wonderful arts teachers in the Indianapolis area and would be happy to share the contact details with you.

  2. Attend Conferences & Conventions
    There are some really amazing arts conferences out there, but we can't help but mention our favorite, Karitos in Chicago.  It offers an amazing weekend of workshops, worship & connecting with other artists. The cost is minimal as far as conferences go, under $100 for adults and those that attend tend to be forever changed in their ministry. If you don't want to make the trek to Chicago, try out the mini version of the conference right here in Indy - Karitos Indy.

  3. Contact a Talent Development Agency
    If you believe you are called to work in the arts professionally, going the next step and contacting an arts development agency may be something to consider. Actors Models & Talent for Christ (AMTC) is a great resource for those that wish to serve the Kingdom through the performing arts. They hold auditions in the Indianapolis area two times a year or you may submit a video online.
We at 1heart Arts are here to pray with you and assist in any way that we can! If you have questions about any of these resources, please feel free to contact us at  We also would LOVE to hear how God is moving your passions, so please share with us. Have a wonderful journey!
