WHO WE ARE

Poieo Centre of Arts Ministry is a Christ-centred community that pastors artists, promotes their artistic gifts and theological understanding of art, and produces art collaboratively. It cultivates redemptive images, sounds, space, and stories which contribute to a lively transformation of the church and culture. This ministry, as a creative response to the cultural mandate (Gen. 1:27-28) and missional mandate (Matt. 28:16-20), aims to bring shalom in the world.

WHAT WE HOPE

  • Artists will be faithful to their covenant relationship with God and to their creative vocations.

  • The church will see and use liturgical art for all its worth.

  • A broken culture will be restored through the work of faithful artists.

WHAT WE DO

  • We pastor artists.

  • We promote artistic gifts and theological understanding of art.

  • We produce life-transforming art.

POIEO

POIEO (ποιέω) means “create, make, or do” in Greek. It generally refers to the simple action of making something, yet the Apostle Paul uses it in a religious sense in which human action is never neutral. He sees that human work is either obedience or disobedience in relation to God’s will for human beings. Likewise, what artists create cannot be neutral in the sight of God. Their works of art can be either "scent" or "stench" to God. POIEO Centre functions as an alternative space in serving artists to be faithful to the Triune God in their unique journeys of life as well as in their final artistic presentations.
