Stories are light. Light is precious in a world so dark. Begin at the beginning. Tell a story. Make some light.

The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie brings a whole set of unique experiences, but through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time.

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.
