Artistry & Ministry
of Gospel Art
The expression of Gospel music has been around for decades since as early as the 17th century, having its’ origin and culture rooted primarily in southern vocal traditions of hymns, sacred songs, negro spirituals and call-and-response congregational singing within churches. During that time, gospel music on both religious and secular platforms, was widely embraced culturally and accepted as a creative expression within Performing Arts. However, for the church it was mainly considered and viewed as being part of a church's liturgy within their corporate expression of worship; as most churches back then did not have a Performing Arts Department or Music & Worship Arts Ministry.
Over the years, the expression of Gospel in the Arts has evolved into a full-fledged artistically creative platform for ministry beyond that of singing and consequently, becoming widely embraced by church congregations with the development and expansion of their ministerial platform for the Arts, to now having some of the most creative, technologically advanced performance platforms and Music & Arts Ministries in our society today. The continual embracing of Gospel in the Arts, has provided those with creative talents and a passion for artistry, performance and ministry, opportunities to creatively use their talents as an artistic expression of worship [in church], and to share the message of the Gospel.
Gospel Artists are bringing the ministry of Gospel-Arts to the forefront, inspiring and uplifting others with a message of hope, love and joy. Gospel in the Arts, has undoubtedly become a recognized artistic platform for an effective tool or vehicle of ministry; thus paving the way for it to be received more and more by both religious and mainstream audiences around the world.
