Posted: November 11, 2016 in books, Thoughts on art ministry and life

avisionforvisualscovermockupI have never shared this part of the process before. I’m going to give you the outline of a project in it’s infancy. This is a project that should probably be on the back burner for quite a while, but a few opportunities seem to be saying, “Get this done!” Now a disclaimer for this post would be I have the process of writing a book figured out, but I have yet to figure out how to get onto the best sellers list, some have yet to reach the sellers list, but I digress. These will be the topics for my how-to book on the many manifestations of art ministry.

The working title of the book is A Vision for Visuals: Using Art in Ministry and a lot of this could still change but here are the ideas I am looking at, This is really rough some things will change, some will be reordered, some will be cut. So here’s the question. What am I missing?
