Though we understand that many young people have a dream to be a 'star', the creative arts ministries at Emmanuel Pittsburgh provide a place where young people might explore creative ways to honor, worship and praise God.

The Emmanuel Creative Arts Academy (ECAA) is a new and exciting way to expose youth and teens to the many methods of creative ministry expression including mime, dance, song, instrumental music, poetry, spoken word, drama and puppets.  The Academy consists of (but not limited to):

- 'God With Us' Community Youth & Teen Choir
- step4tK (for-the-Kingdom) Step Team
- Children of Triumph Mimes
- Mastery In Movement Creative/Liturgical Dance
- 'In Good Company' Theater Group
- empoWORD Spoken Word, Oration & Poetry
- Visual & Graphic Creative Arts
- King's Crew Production Team (set design, props, tech, social media, script writing, production)

All rehearsals will be supervised by approved and credentialed adult Youth Ministry workers and will employ fun and creative ways to introduce our young people to the many elements of creative arts ministry.

In an effort to encourage youth and teen leadership, ECAA participants have the opportunity to take on various coordinator/leadership roles, allowing them to develop and refine the characteristics of the servant-leader.

Ministry participants will minister regularly at Emmanuel Pittsburgh and may also minister beyond the walls of the church sanctuary as the Lord directs!

Please contact Pastor Conti if you would like more information on the ECAA or have an interest in helping develop this exciting ministry.
