Advice for Christian Artists

Max McLean encourages Christians in the arts to integrate their faith in every step they take. “Make your faith the source of your art,” he says.

In this short video he explains the passion and strategy behind his work and the production company he founded, Fellowship of Performing Arts. In short, his advice to Christian artists is 1) reflect Christian truth; 2) empathize with people of other worldviews; and 3) execute your art with excellence.
