Members of the Creative Arts Ministry (CAM) are affectionately known as “CAMels” (as “el” is the Hebraic for God, CAM+el means “CAM belonging to God”)

CAMels are pace-setters, front-liners of Missional Worship. As stewards of God’s high and holy calling, we want to excel in the areas of our anointing, natural and spiritual abilities, and build to strengthen our inner lives in Christ, through the enablement of the Holy Spirit. We minister to our congregations and fellow worshippers who worship God in Spirit and in Truth

1. To develop a worship culture that will further the thrust of the Missional Family Church

2. To lead the congregation in anointed and authentic worship

3. To affect and advance the Kingdom of God through the Arts

Media & Production

This is the technical backbone of CAM, comprising Praise Audio, Praise Visual and Praise Media. These CAMels provide a conducive sound and lighting environment for our services and productions. The Media arm churns out, oversees and facilitates the content, style and delivery of audio and video recording and reproduction.

This back-of-house arm handles the logistics, administration, stage management, event and service management and all other attendant production elements. The goal is to create the best setting for “God-moments” while upholding the highest possible production value

Worship & Arts

The worship services across the four CAMpuses (GI, GII, YAYP and R-AGE congregations) are supported by different worship teams comprise of Worship Leaders, Musicians and Singers. The worship teams gather for weekly rehearsals to serve for the weekend services. We use a variety of songs ranging from hymns, contemporary gospel songs and our own Gracesongs that are written by CAMels and church members.

On top of the regular services, CAMels are called to support special services such as the annual Easter, Christmas, Watchnight, Church Retreat and other special events. The respective Praise Groups have the exciting proposition of coming up with dance, drama and song items. To encourage greater creativity, we have used fully original scripts, songs, design and choreography. We are not only multi-dimensional in our approach but also multi-generational, working with creative arts teams of different congregations for the combined church-wide services.

Objective

As the Grace Songwriters, we are a community of creative collaboration amongst creatives and songwriters. The ministry aims to foster a creative content-generating environment, especially (but not limited to) new songs for the congregation. The ministry also exists to provide a platform for existing songwriters to further hone their craft of songwriting and generate new songs that may be used in the services to edify the body, as well as for budding songwriters to be mentored as they explore and grow in songwriting.

Service Platform

The pool of songwriters will meet at least once a month for creative sessions.

Songwriters will also be involved in the creative process of the GraceSongs CD production.

Commitment to Growth

Every songwriter commits to grow first and foremost in their knowledge of God and His word, forming a theologically firm foundation in creating creative content that will edify the body of Christ. We also believe that “no artist is an island,” and each songwriter commits to functioning within a creative community, both receiving and giving feedback with the common goal of developing the skillset of songwriting with others.

Join Us

If you are a songwriter who loves to put ideas into words that take the shape of a song and have some musical experience (not compulsory but preferred), do write in or send your song demos to cam@graceaog.org
