Karitos Worship & Arts Conference Podcast

Synopsis

Karitos...the Podcast. Interviews from a unique and diverse gathering of creatives that provides Biblically-based tools to encourage, empower and equip artists to serve the Kingdom and impact the world."What is God doing in the arts?"That simple question asked on a talk radio show in the fall of 1994, led to a one-day gathering of Christian artists in the Spring of 1995. Over time a second evening was added, then a second day and third evening.Today, Karitos has become one of the most unique conferences in the country for those who not only want to know what God is doing in the arts but want to be part of it. While there are a number of conferences designed specifically for musicians, or for dancers, writers, visual artists or those in drama ministry, there are very few that bring all of these disciplines together.
