Creative By Design 2018
In 2014, eleven creatives met the Sunday morning following Creative South in the upper room at Iron Bank Coffee Company to study a new topic titled ‘Creative by Design’ led by Shane Helm and Mike Jones. Soon after, ‘Creative by Design’ became a community of creatives that share a belief in their Creator and His vision for their lives. Since, ‘Creative by Design’ has become an integral part of the Creative South Conference and last year had over 130 people attend the session in the Springer Opera House.
The Creative By Design community invites you to our on-going study of creativity through the eyes of our Creator. The study focuses on God’s example for the creative life, and how He intended for us to use our talents to impact a lost and wandering world. This session will inspire you to have no fear in your beliefs, and that God through creativity can change the world.

Eminent Worship exists to UNIFY the body of Christ through authentic, Spirit-filled worship.
John 4:23 – “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.”
We believe that worship isn’t limited to an event or a song but is a posture of our hearts. When we are truly intimate with the Father in Spirit and in Truth, there is a freedom that flows from His presence.
We believe that this authentic worship changes people and can transform cities. There is something unique and special about the body of Christ coming together with one voice, across all boundaries and differences to worship the Father in this way.
