Interactive Webinar with Rory Noland: The Heart of the Artist

A live discussion with the author

The Heart of the Artist (Second Edition) with Rory Noland
Saturday, April 17, 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. EST (GMT -5)

“God is interested in your art and your heart.”

First published 22 years ago, the second edition of Rory’s very popular book has received a re-write with “a great deal of new content.” Now, this new edition speaks in a fresh way to Christian artists in today’s culture—in and outside the church.

Rory deals head-on with issues every person in an arts ministry faces, including:

  • Servanthood versus stardom
  • Excellence versus perfectionism
  • Handling criticism
  • Jealousy and envy
  • And more

“We need to be as serious about developing godly character as we are about honing our talents.”

Rory Noland is a graduate of the Robert Webber Institute for Worship Studies (M.W.S. 2015, D.W.S. 2018). He is the director of Heart of the Artist Ministries, a published songwriter, and author of four books. Rory leads retreats for artists, speaks at workshops and conferences, mentors worship leaders, and consults with churches on worship and the arts.

The Heart of the Artist. LIVE Zoom on Saturday, April 17, 9:00-10:00 a.m. Eastern.

Use this webinar as a tool for discipling and team building in your ministry. Plan a group participation event. Register and provide books for all the musicians in your church.
