2018 Reforming Arts Conference

Rediscovering our purpose in the arts



Join us in Virginia

Art Speaks

This year's theme:


Can you read the language of the arts? What is it saying to you?
What is it saying about the artist who created it?

The arts can stimulate much thought and also initiate responses more than any other subject, because they touch on the emotions, which naturally cause reactions. They are a powerful tool God has given us to use in order to promote Truth in the world. However, it seems for the most part, the arts ‘speak’ anything BUT truth in our day.

As Christian art enthusiasts, we must understand the great responsibility in the power of the arts and the messages they convey. Whether art critic, curator, gallery owner, artist, buyer or seller, we must wisely consider this important tool as we endeavor to proclaim the glory and honor of God, the Creator of all things.

This year, The Reforming Arts Conference will endeavor to convey how the arts can be used to advance the Kingdom of Christ on earth. We will explore how God has used His visual artistic designs to tell the world about Truth: about Himself. We will also explore the messages of historical and present-day artists and their work, and its impact on the world.

Be inspired by attending this year’s Reforming Arts Conference! Discover the many ways you can be part of the creative world and wisely use this powerful language to the glory and honor of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
