The church needs creativity now more than ever.

Each day people are bombarded by hundreds of messages…
but one is most important. The Gospel of Jesus Christ. We in the church have been entrusted with taking that message to the ends of the earth. How do we stand out among the noise and get their attention? The good news is God has gifted people with gifts and talents designed to do just that. Some of them are in our churches and some are beyond our walls.

My name is Dave Weiss. I’m an artist, a pastor and a speaker, but it wasn’t always that way. Oh I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember, but I’m in the ministry today because of two things. Someone cared enough to introduce me to Jesus Christ, and a pastor found my gift of art as showed me how I could use my gift to serve the Lord. That was transformational.

My passion is to help people find and use their gifts to serve the Lord both in the church and in the market place and to help the church to embrace Creativity. I do workshops, Gospel presentations and more to creatively encourage and build up the Body of Christ. I’d love to work with you and your church. Contact me today!

Last year at our church yard sale, I saw a book that interested me. Shoeless Joe by W.P. Kinsella. I knew what it was almost instantly. It’s the book on which one of my al time favorite movies is based. Field of Dreams. I plopped down my dollar and put it on my shelf. This week I finally got the chance to read it. To be honest, I”m not a huge baseball fan but that movie has always touched my heart. It’s pure genius and so is the book. As usual the book has more content than the movie including characters and a few story lines that never made it to the screen play. James Earl Jones’ character in the movie was Catcher In the Rye author J.D. Salinger in the book, and while I enjoyed Salinger as Kinsella portrays him, I kept thinking about how much more I liked James Earl Jones. To be honest the added characters add something to the story, and I enjoyed them, but the screenwriter gave us a much better ending. That being said I loved this book and if you are looking for a pleasant and optimistic read, pick this one up. P.S. If you are a fan of Field of Dreams, this is a must read, 

Let’s start at the beginning. If anyone from my church reads this review, no I am not thinking of quitting. I received a copy of this book from the publisher as a review copy, and I am really glad I did. This book is wall to wall encouragement and is great for anyone who has ever found themselves in a “dip” a tough spot that make you want to give up. Combining personal examples with many stories from the Bible, (including many of my favorites) Nepstad makes a compelling argument for keeping on keeping on. While I am not thinking of quitting my ministry, I have to admit to having received this book right after something pretty discouraging happened in my life and I have to admit the encouragement in this book, made me realize I could not just survive but thrive. I will not quit in the dip. You shouldn’t either. If you find yourself in need of encouragement, read this book.
