We’re developing our vision of a Pathway called Incarnate. This program will equip you for life and ministry among the least-reached peoples of the world. Bring your creative talents. Create among artists from around the world. Be mentored. Develop your unique approach to ministry. Step into mission as the artist God created you to be.
For creators, performers, and facilitators of all art forms and cultures.
GOD’S STORY – Who is God as an artist? Why does He care about your art?
God's Story reveals God’s character through His creativity and lays a biblical foundation for arts and artists in the kingdom.
YOUR STORY – Who are you as an artist? What do you need to thrive?
Your Story firmly establishes you as an artist in Christ, developing healthy rhythms and habits to thrive in your creativity and be resilient in the ups and downs of life as an artist in mission.
10,000 STORIES – Who are the people He is calling you to? What is your unique role?
10,000 Stories empowers you to live generously as an artist, digging deep for artistic treasures in the people and communities you’re serving, learning to value and engage worldviews other than your own, collaborating well, and discerning a plan for effective long-term ministry.
Our team, many of whom were part of the birth of the arts in mission movement in the 20th century, has decades of experience. From this experience, we’ve identified the skills and knowledge an artist needs to thrive in mission and serve communities well. You don’t have to figure out everything that you need. We guide you down the path.
Our network of experienced artists and ministry partners extends around the world. We identify the events and trainings in this network that will help you gain the knowledge you need. You don’t have to do the searching. We point you to the options.
We understand that creators, performers, and facilitators have different needs and goals. We also know that finances, family needs, and location can affect your ability to join expensive or lengthy training. So, we work with you to create a training plan that is customised to your skills and flexible to your situation. You don’t have to raise several years of salary or leave for months at a time. The plan can be accomplished over time and within your financial means.
After your application, we will work with you to discern your interests, skills, and long-term goals for arts ministry. We also review your financial reality, when you can travel abroad and when you need something closer to home. From that, we help you create your unique pathway.

Today, we are thrilled to share a story from one of our recent Incarnate graduates! At Incarnate this year, the students were able to interact with the art of kintsugi (see our recent article "Kintsugi and a Theology of Brokenness"), and one student was deeply impacted by it. Read below as she shares her story of kintsugi and how the Lord used it to teach her about the beauty in brokenness.
We are privileged to share this article that was recently published in Grace Go Bloom's magazine. The article tells the story of an Incarnate graduate, Heidi Salzwedel, and her experience during the program. Incarnate 2022 is happening currently, and we are praying for many more stories like Heidi's.
We recently had the privilege of hearing from an Incarnate alumna from 2018. Read below as she shares her testimony of what the Lord did in her life while she was there! If you are interested in Incarnate, check out our Incarnate page here!
