They are abandoning the Church at higher rates than ever before.
The world’s counter-Christian messages continue to target younger audiences. These Gen Zs and Gen Alphas (born after 2010) are highly susceptible to seduction by the world and are among the least discipled by the church. The good news is that they are routinely described as more creative-minded and arts-oriented than previous generations and seek outlets for artistic expression
INC believes that creatives are profoundly influential, and can change the world. With this in mind, we are determined to reach the next generation with a viable program that will shape young creatives with a biblical worldview. .
INC is addressing this need with its Emerging Creatives Program, designed to disciple and mentor middle and high school-aged artists. The program offers various rotations of visual arts, music, media, and performance to nurture the faith of Gen Zs and Gen Alphas, and deepen their relationship with God.
Many school programs do not include art because it is not readily available. Gen-Zs and Gen-Alphas need creative outlets. They need ways to express themselves and reassurance of Christ’s plan for their lives. They need to know they can enter the world after school and find a place where they will fit without compromising their biblical beliefs.
Comments from Emerging Creative Caleb Faircloth:
“INC's Emerging Creatives Initiative is life-changing and significantly impacts students in Southwest Florida. It has dramatically affected my relationship with Christ. I have learned many new things about God and have deepened my relationship with Him. INC Emerging Creatives is an outreach outlet to engage existing believers and non-believers. I know many young and aspiring artists who need to know the good news of Jesus Christ, and I believe INC is a catalyst to save them and teach them the Gospel."
Gen-Z and Gen-Alpha creatives need mentor-based art programs that inspire, guide, and shepherd them to embrace a Christ Identity, experience authentic community, and discover and their God-given purposes.
"A good quality ministry like this is vital for the church because it teaches us about God and keeps us returning. With a lot of prayers and support from the congregation, students will come to know Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Emerging Creatives is essential and is significantly impacting the artists in our area and grow the church to reach more people.”
