361 - Building An Art Ministry: A Conversation with Greg & Susan Card
Show Notes

Building up the role of art ministries in the church is a very big task.  In fact, it sure seems like it’s too big for one person to handle.  It’s a good thing that my guests on this episode of the Thriving Christian Artists podcast, Greg and Susan Card, have each other to lean on.  

Greg and Susan have been creating art their whole lives.  When they met, they bonded over their love for art and their love for the Lord, they got married, and they went about the work of bringing art into the church.  

Back in the 80s, there wasn’t much of a position for art in the way churches ministered to the people, so Greg and Susan had their work cut out for them.  

But they’ve stayed at it, keeping their ears to the Spirit, maintaining a flow with creating their own art, and being in the ministry as the Lord directed them.  

Together, they’ve learned to patiently work on the Lord’s timetable, not their own.  And they’ve always been there for each other.  Their story is really inspiring, and I’m honored to share it with you on the podcast.
