The arts are so powerful to touch the human heart and soul. Not only do they communicate human emotion, but they can also communicate the message of truth in ways that mere words cannot. When used for the Kingdom of God, they are a powerful tool that can reach people when conventional methods fail. A person might be unwilling to attend church, but they might go to a concert. A friend may be unwilling to listen to a sermon, but they might listen to a song. A coworker may not want to discuss religion, but they might go to a theatrical production. And for those who already know God and walk with Him, Christian arts strengthen our faith and encourage our souls. Unfortunately, we've all seen examples of Christian art done poorly, or in a hokey manner. Our desire is to produce art in excellence and beauty.
Goals for the Future:
1.) FreedomTruth Ministries desires to produce music concerts and theatrical performances in the Tulsa area that glorify God and build His Kingdom. Initially, we will likely use a facility belonging to another church/organization, but our ultimate goal is to acquire or lease a building in the Tulsa area to serve as a concert and performance hall. It would be used to facilitate and celebrate the expressions of art that glorify Jesus and proclaim His truth. If this is something you would like to help make reality, please contact us through this website.
2.) A long-term goal is to form a record label in the Tulsa area that will record and promote Christian artists that unify the tapestry of American music with their Christianity. Historical American music is so rich in its rawness, uniqueness, and creativity - the blues, R&B, soul, jazz, gospel, country, and rock n' roll. Unfortunately, mainstream Christian music is produced mostly by a handful of large record labels and has become one-dimensional and predictable in its sound and production. The influence of America's rich musical tapestry has gone missing. We want to bring it back with excellence and challenge the mainstream notion of what Christian music should be.
3.) Another long-term goal is to form a theatrical production company in the Tulsa area to create and produce skits, plays, and musical productions that glorify the name of Jesus and communicate biblical truth while maintaining artistic integrity and excellence. If this is a ministry that interests you, and you would like to help make this a reality - please contact us through this website.
4.) Finally, our fourth goal is to host and promote an annual multi-day music festival in northeast Oklahoma that celebrates Christian music and art in various forms while also providing a space to discuss God and Christian theology as a musical community. Goals like this often happen gradually, with small outdoor concerts and festivals being produced first, building up to larger sizes as time goes on. Our ultimate goal (as God leads and provides) is to eventually utilize the Rocklahoma facilities in Pryor, Oklahoma. This is a big goal, but our God is bigger!
