Creative Christians

Listen to inspirational stories of Christians who are using their God-given talents and gifts in creative endeavors, such as filmmaking, writing & music – not just to make a living or fulfill a passion – but to glorify God as well. Host Tim Ristow – a Christian, filmmaker, writer and creative - interviews a different guest each episode from his circle of fellow Christian creatives. How do creatives approach their craft? What kinds of things are they creating? What are the processes they use to create them? How do they strive to be and stay creative? How does their faith influence and inform their creativity?
