God’s Glory Through Your Work

Many artists want to explore the intersection of art and faith, but struggle to find safe spaces to do so. Arts Fellowship Orlando exists to celebrate, engage, and grow Christ-centered artists to expand their role in God’s greater story of redemption and restoration.

We believe Christian artists of all disciplines need the opportunity to grow creatively and spiritually in a Christ-centered community.

Arts Fellowship Orlando is a unique opportunity for mature Christian creatives in the greater Orlando area to engage in a six-month exploration of the intersection of art and faith. During the program, you will grow in community with artists of various disciplines, and gain clarity on your role as an artist in God’s Kingdom. In addition, you will be given the resources to cultivate new original works with multiple opportunities to present them. You will create within a supportive community while enriching your theology of making and Christian spiritual formation.

A Program Designed with the Christian Artist In Mind

The next fellowship will begin in January 2024.

In an effort to assist each fellow in the creation of original works during the program, a $5,000 scholarship will be provided to each participant over the course of the fellowship.

In addition, fellows will have access to:

  • Theological training designed with the artist in mind.
  • Weekly 1:1 discipleship appointments.
  • 1:1 personal spiritual direction.
  • Opportunity to work with a renowned mentor in your field.
  • Opportunities to be featured in multiple showcases and programs.
  • Various opportunities to network, collaborate, and grow in camaraderie with other Christian artists.
