About UsAdventist Society for the Arts (ASA) is one of several projects being sponsored by Church Support Services, a research and development entity for creative ministry in the Pacific Union Conference. ASA is a virtual and real community of Seventh-day Adventist members gifted in, and passionate about the creative arts who wish to share their ideas and creations in a collaborative way. Songwriting, drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, poetry, videography and more can be used in powerful ways to convey God’s stories of hope and healing to our churches and surrounding communities.
This website represents an intentional effort to stimulate dialog and engagement in mission among Adventist creatives. As a church we need to celebrate the old and capture the new.
It is time to risk and explore new ministry frontiers – for God’s sake! We cannot use 19th century methods to reach 21st century people. Even in her day, Ellen White said: “Whatever may have been your former practice, it is not necessary to repeat it again and again in the same way. God would have new and untried methods followed. Break in upon the people – surprise them.” – Manuscript 121, 1897 (Evangelism, p.125). We need fresh new music, art, photography, poetry to convey God’s healing message of hope and coming deliverance.
This project is possible because of a willingness on the part of many artists and musicians to share their stories, without which we would have nothing to say.
