Your Creative Adventure for Christian Artists

Summary: If you’re a Christian artist who is frustrated because you struggle to make money with your art, the Your Creative Adventure podcast will help. We believe it is possible to sell your art without selling your soul. Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” A masterpiece is the best work of an artist. Not only are you and I God’s best work, but He also planned for us to create “good things” that reflect His glory. Do you have a desire to be paid for the good things you create as an artist? If so, join CJ and Shelley Hitz as they help you make money as an artist doing what you love while glorifying God through your art.
