What we are all about
Creatively Christian is a podcast and community produced by Theophany Media that explores the intersection of faith and creativity–and how to grow in each area.
For us, creativity is not just about art–creativity is expressed anytime someone thinks outside the box and steps into their mission. In each episode of the show, one of four fantastic hosts interviews a Christian creative about their life, work, and theology so that you can learn and be inspired by their story. The show has featured movie directors, fiction writers, dancers, a Lego architect, and everyone in between.
