 CREATIVE ARTS IN THE ARMY

MISSION STATEMENT

 

To provide opportunities to encounter God through sincere artistic expressions that reflect the creativity of God Himself.

 

Territorial Creative Arts Director: Roberta Simmons-Smith

The Creative Arts is a term the Salvation Army, particularly in the Southern Territory, has taken to name all the creative ways we have to worship apart from Instrumental and Vocal music alone. While instrumental and vocal music are indeed creative, the Salvation Army has termed the artistic ministries that incorporate alternate art forms as the Creative Arts.

Creative Arts Tree

The Creative Arts will often use instrumental and vocal to enhance their ministry - they are partners in ministry.

Through the Creative Arts we have seen so many come into our fellowship in Salvation Army ministry just by offering more styles of Worship.

The ENTIRE PURPOSE of establishing, maintaining, and growing the Creative Arts ministries in the Southern Territory is to provide even more creative avenues that ENHANCE our worship as we seek to give only our best to our God!
