The following is a guest post from Scott Trapasso and the CreateConference Team. We love participating in Create each year, and wanted you to hear about it! Enjoy!
Create Conference — A heart for creatives within the church
The overwhelming amount of people that constantly tell us how badly they needed this experience, tells us one important thing, creatives within the church are longing for an experience like Create.
For those of you who don’t know, Create is really an opportunity for like minded creatives to come together and be inspired, encouraged, and equipped to tell the greatest story ever told. Along with inspirational keynotes, Create offers breakouts and workshops in Video, Web, Arts, Leadership, and Design. Our desire with Create is that people who attend our conference would not only be challenged but also practically equipped within the ministry that they work.
This year we had some amazing guests at Create conference, all of who challenged and inspired us as creatives. Gary Molander of Floodgate Productions, brought a powerful and life changing word, Whitney George, from Church On The Move, inspired us with powerful illustrations, and The Skit Guys made us laugh and cry at least more than once. Other speakers such as Esther Havens (Humanitarian Photographer) and Bill Markham (Lead Pastor at Central Community Church) taught us how important “perspective” truly is, and as creatives how it is important that we understand the power of perspective.
As a conference team, our hope and prayer is that as creatives within the church we need to constantly be challenged, inspired, equipped, and motivated, and our hope is that people find those things at Create Conference.
If you are interested in attending Create 2013, registration is already open, and you can register at www.createconference.ca
The theme of this years conference was “perspective” so it only seemed appropriate that as a conference team we designed creative elements around this fact. The video below was the opening video to this years conference entitled Perspective and it really set the tone.
