Online C.A.M.P. (Created Arts Ministry Program)
Condensed Art Ministry Training to equip people to use the arts as a way to help people connect to God
Online Training Program to equip Christ followers to use art ministry as a tool to share Gods love, hope and healing with their communities. www.createdministry.com
C.A.M.P. (Created Arts Ministry Program) began in San Antonio in 2018 as an intensive weekend training program to train and equip creatives to use various types of creative arts to begin art ministry programs in their communities and cities. After hearing from many outside the US, we realized the need and desire was much bigger. The training has been condensed and filmed as an online training tool, available for anyone! We use the basic "bone structure" of the Created method of teaching people to create and connect with God (Reset, Reflect, Create) that director Ashley Rogers developed after years of leading creative reflective sessions. They are basic tools that can be applied to any creative context.
How do you know if this program is right for you? Here's a few questions to ask yourself:
Do you love art, writing, dance, or any other form of creative art?
Do you love Jesus and want others to know He loves them?
Do you have a desire to connect art with ministry or outreach but don't know where to begin?
Have you looked into art therapy programs but struggled to find the faith connection OR couldn't do years of schooling?
Is there a nagging feeling deep in your Spirit that says, "there's something else... there's more- I just don't know what!"
If you answered YES to many of these questions, it sounds like CAMP is a great place to begin! We are not an art therapy program, nor is there any official certification available for higher education. Rather this program was built to equip ANYONE with the desire to love others through art. Yes, you!
What will you get through the Teachable program?
-Anytime access to all training videos to watch and re-watch whenever you need them
-The chance to walk through a Created session yourself
-Printouts to go along with the videos
-Access to purchase the Facilitator Training Manual after you finish the program (only available to those who have been through the training program)
-A new community of creative artisans who share similar desires and hearts. We fellowship, share ideas, encourage one another.
If you still have questions about the training program, please contact Ashley Rogers with Created Ministry. Also, if cost is a hinderance for you, we have half, partial and full scholarships to enable anyone with the desire to be trained. All payments made go directly to Created Ministry and are used to continue to train and equip people around the world to begin doing art ministry in the contexts God has placed them. Will you join this team of creative warriors?
Ashley Rogers is the director of Created Ministry. She studied art education at Baylor and has taught in various settings for the last 16 years. She follows Jesus as a writer, collage artist, teacher, mommy of three and wife. Created was born from a vision God placed on her heart to see people connect with the heart of God through the creative arts. She recently wrote "Creating with the Creator" to help others begin their own journey. Whether on podcast, to groups or through personal mentorships, she enjoys speaking and encouraging people to keep seeking as they create.
"As I have experienced freedom from perfection, my art has felt the results of it. I love mixed media, collage and acrylics. My favorite times of creating happen during worship and prophetic art- watching the Holy Spirit show up and speak in real time as my brush responds. There’s nothing like it."
