Athanatos Christian Ministries will be hosting its first annual Christian Arts (and Apologetics) Festival in the summer of 2016. Join us August 4-7, 2016 in Greenwood, WI. All artistic expressions will be featured: music, film, novels, drama, the visual arts, etc. In the spirit of ACM’s mission to defend the Christian faith through the arts, the festival will encourage artists to appeal as much to secular audiences as with Christian ones. This festival will be held in conjunction with the Athanatos Writing Contest.
