Digital StillCameraI am pleased to announce that I am going to be serving as artist in residence for The Foundry Church in Wallingford, PA. This will be in addition to my speaking ministry, AMOKArts and being pastor of creative arts at Ephrata Church of the Brethren. I’ve had a relationship with The Foundry for several years now and have preached there at least once a year. In this new role I will be preaching and painting 6 to 8 times over the course of this year in their worship services and helping them to build their creative arts ministry and inspire and empower the people to use their creative gifts to serve the Lord. I am looking forward to seeing what God does through this. My hope is that through these ministries I can help other churches and ministries to find ways to minister to their creatives as well.

Here’s what pastor Chuck Kieffer had to say about this ministry:

The Foundry is pleased to announce that Visual Artist, Speed Painter, & Storyteller Dave Weiss has agreed to serve as our Artist in Residence! Beginning February 15th Dave will add his artist touch to our speaking team. On that date Dave will speak and paint in our 10:30am/ 6:00pm services. At 2pm he will host a Creative Arts Fellowship and discussion group for area artists. The Foundry believes that the Church should be the most creative place on the planet, we extend an invitation for local artists to be a part of our community. If you are a painter, film maker, writer or artist of any genre you are welcome here.

I just want to highlight one line from Chuck’s post.

The Foundry believes that the Church should be the most creative place on the planet…

I wholeheartedly believe that too.

What can you do to help your church be more creative?
