Packed into St. Paul's Art House North, over 120 church leaders participated in LJ Live: Redeeming Work on June 12, 2014. Art House, started by Troy and Sara Groves, is a 100+ year old church where musicians, photographers, and filmmakers gather to find a creative culture for the common good of the Twin Cities.
Andy Crouch led a session on reaffirming a culture of vocation, and pastor Tom Nelson laid out a biblical vision for vocation in the local church, sharing stories and examples of how his Kansas City church has incorporated faith and work.
There were multiple ways that attendees connected with each other and with all the presenters, including workshop time, offsite discussion, and question and answer sessions set aside throughout the day.
The day concluded at Art House North with a dinner, worship and reflections with Sara Groves, and Andy Crouch sharing his thoughts on the role of artists in God's work.
