Growing in the Arts
At CCS we believe the cultivation, support, and pursuit of the arts are crucial to a healthy society and to sculpting the created order in a way that pleases God. We strive to equip our students with the tools to develop excellent craftsmanship, with a Christ-centered identity, to engage our culture as culture-makers through the service of their respective talents and giftings. All of this is done with an attitude of faith and a willingness to walk into the places of uncertainty that open doors to greater innovation. Our hope is to cultivate a holistic appreciation and practice of the arts that will bear fruit through our students as future creatives, artists, and image-bearers, who will reveal glimpses of a new creation to a world desperate for substantial truth, beauty, and goodness.
