What is a Missional Worship Artist?
To be Missional means to have undertaken the missio Dei (Mission of God).
A Worship Artist is not just a worship leader, but one who makes things that compel others to worship God, particularly things that in their substance imitate the Kingdom of God.
Jesus said, “…no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above.” (John 3:3). Only those who believe can glimpse the Kingdom.
A Missional Worship Artist, then, is a skilled maker (of pictures, music, literature, whatever) who recognizes her “sentness” into the world. While glorifying God in heaven with her art, she also portrays God’s kingdom on earth.
The goal of a Missional Worship Artist is two-fold:
1) to remind believers Who their God is so they may worship Him well.
2) to reveal the invisible Kingdom to those who don’t yet believe.
