Reclaiming the Arts for Christ
With a passion for building up communicators grounded in a Biblical philosophy, The Academy of Arts Christian Conservatory holds fast to its mission of training young people in the powerful mediums of drama, music, and film.
The one year GAP program (June- May) provides students with training in all aspects of theater (lighting, sets, props, makeup, costumes, acting, directing) as well as counseling and discipleship as they will travel across the United States with our staff team leaders ministering and teaching in one week dramatic word seminars.
The two-year Associate’s degree provides students with two years of exceptional communicative and theatrical education. Students will take online courses while touring with the Logos Theatre Touring Company from August to May. During their first two years, students will work to write and direct 8-9 minute cuttings which will be performed in their second year as the completion of their Associate’s degree.
During an Associate degree student’s second year, each student will be given the opportunity to audition for entrance into this exclusive program. A max of 5 students will be selected. The third year Bachelor’s program provides students with specialized training as they work alongside a creative team to write, direct, and debut their own full length production in The Logos Theatre.
The universal command from our Lord to “make disciples” is paramount. Accordingly, our program seeks to build Christlike character in each participant through one-on-one accountability and loving, honest conversations so that everyone changes to be a more fruitful disciple of the Master.
Most of the modern world has a perspective on the arts that says “it’s just entertainment – it doesn’t matter!” We could not disagree more as we see the agendas of Hollywood and Broadway fundamentally changing the vision and values of our culture. Our biblically-based philosophies prepare each student to earnestly contend for the faith amidst a world filled with humanistic thinking.
“He that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” (Matt. 23:11) The performing arts can bring a spirit of pride or unhealthy ambition, but we teach that there are “no small parts” in a project. So whether you are center stage or moving sets in the dark, we learn, grow, and lead most effectively by serving others.
