Worship, Theology, and the Arts

Do you see the arts playing an important role in theology and the church? Do you search for signs of God in cultural movements? Or does your passion lie in weaving creativity--art, drama, film, the music of other cultures--into the worship experience?

There is a vibrant movement to integrate the arts with theology and worship, and Fuller's Brehm Center is helping lead the way. When you pursue an emphasis in Worship, Theology, and the Arts, you will study with faculty who are artists, musicians, and pastors as well as scholars--leaders who will help you think biblically about incorporating the arts into your worship and ministry.

How will you engage culture, theology, and the arts?
