Renaissance: A Creative Arts Movement
Renaissance is a creative arts movement powered by three engines:
Renaissance Church, Renaissance Arts Center, and Renaissance Entertainment.
Our mission is to tear down religious and secular walls by igniting an artistic resurgence in the Body of Christ (B.O.C) that will liberate the community and the entertainment industry, reestablishing the B.O.C. as the dominating culture in artistic expression, so that she may obtain the influence needed to draw the lost to the light.
