And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Colossians 3:17
At IAG, we are committed to follow Jesus’ teachings and use our gifts and talents for the mission of God. The church has a Fine Arts Ministry that organizes events once every three months. Through this program, young children are given an opportunity to showcase their different talents and perform in front of an audience.
The Fine Arts Ministry is a discipleship tool of the Assemblies of God church, designed to help children Discover, Develop and Deploy their ministry gifts in a world that needs Jesus.(https://youth.ag.org/Fine-Arts)
Our hope is that as children use their talents for God, they’ll be able to personally experience our Lord’s message of love and forgiveness and be more inspired to use their gifts to help others.
There are several programs that students can participate in, such as instrumental solo, painting, drawing, poetry writing, drama, singing, human video, worship dance, action songs, storytelling, short sermon, puppetry, etc. Initially, children are shy and anxious about facing their peers and performing in front of an audience. However, with persistent effort and support from parents and church members, we’ve seen time and again how kids develop a sense of confidence and passion to show their God-given gifts.
Indeed, fine arts is not just about performing before an audience. It’s about the process of young children identifying their unique talents, becoming true Christ followers, and developing their gifts for the advancement of the gospel.
