Creativity promoted through Movement Day’s Artists in Community Track
The annual Movement Day Conference in New York City incorporated creativity into the worship and included a prominent track entitled, “Artists in Community: Something Beautiful is Happening!” The development and introduction of this track is considered a breakthrough by New York’s Christian leaders, because so many of the creative minds of the city have felt overlooked for years, Filled with originality, inspiration and credibility, the track was designed to encourage participants to find unity in in their separate areas of Christian artistry and its advancement in New York and other urban cities.
Movement Day has become one of the fastest growing and most influential gatherings of urban ministry leaders in the United States. Last October, the fourth Movement Day was hosted by Dr. Mac Pier, CEO of The New York City Leadership Center , in collaboration with Redeemer City To City and co-hosted by American Bible Society. This major event attracted 1,400 of the nation’s most distinguished leaders who are passionate about affecting city transformation through Gospel Movements.
The arts are enormously important in shaping cites and culture. We want Christian leaders to be thinking critically and connecting strategically around their passions for the Arts. We included praise dancers from Crossroads Tabernacle as well as adding a new track for this very purpose. We were also blessed to have dramatic performances incorporated by Bruce Kuhn, an original cast member in Broadway’s Les Misérables. Everyone brought a beautiful focus upon Christian arts
-Dr. Mac Pier
Recognizing a need for Christian artists to be involved in citywide Gospel Movements, the NYCLC team encouraged the development of the Artists in Community track by leaders within The Navigators ministry.
Movement Day is a leadership development initiative of The New York City Leadership Center founded by Dr. Mac Pier. Their vision is to become a model of Christian leaders impacting the spiritual and social climate of an urban center. Their mission is to exponentially increase the leadership effectiveness of ministry and marketplace leaders. Visit their website at www.NYCLeadership.com.
