IMAGINEER – PlainJoe Studios Co-Founder Mel McGowan featured in the November 2017 issue of The Christian Standard

What would happen if the church was to reclaim its position as the creative leader in our modern culture?

For centuries, the church was considered the hub of creativity, commissioning artists, architects, and artisans to creatively express God’s story to a world in darkness. These days it seems that we’ve allowed others to take over that mantle.

In his recent article for the Christian Standard, PlainJoe Co-Founder Mel McGowan explores how churches could once again stand tall as the creative touchstone within the culture by taking hints from some of the best storytellers of our modern age, Walt Disney’s Imagineers.
