Christians In The Talent Industry
For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on Him in Whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: 'How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!'
Romans 10:13-15 (NKJV)
How shall the stars, star makers and fans of film, fashion, dance, theater, and music be saved? How can they call on the Name of Jesus when they do not know Him? When they have not seen Him? You are His body. You are His voice.
What are we thinking when we hang tight in our churches, homes, and neighborhoods? When we cling close to our cultural clones? We are thinking of ourselves. We are playing it safe.
Actors, Models and Talent for Christ, the company, has a great commission. We are the senders. 'And how shall they preach, unless they are sent?' AMTC is a vehicle to get you where you need to go. AMTC is a teacher to make you industry ready. AMTC is a bridge to connect the talent of God to the world.
And you? You are God's beautiful feet, faces, and voices. You are His loving ambassadors. You are His joy, talent, and light that will bring curious glances at every audition and every job. When someone asks, 'What is the reason for your hope, your joy?' (1 Peter 3:15), you have a ready answer. You, too, have a great commission.
