Creative 03: Holy Ghost Art with Darren Wilson
Welcome back! This show is all about touching base with creative leaders in the church culture, and that is exactly why I have a trailblazer like Darren Wilson here with me today. Darren is doing amazing things to change the way Christians view and use film to communicate our inherent creativity. You see, Darren has a real problem with much of the art that is released in Christian circles. So much of it, he says, is ruled by fear. We fear it will anger or marginalize. We fear we might misrepresent God. Darren is encouraging you today to take a step out in faith and create something as if fear wasn’t in the picture. His films are proof of that.
Darren produces and now directs with WP Films. Each project since day once is seen as a chance to push himself creatively. No project begins without some kind of leading from the Holy Spirit. Films like Finger of God and Holy Ghost are creative explorations that push the limits of where Christian cinema has dared to go before. With each project, Darren has explored the darkest parts of the world, prayed with countless people, and seen miracles happen before his very eyes. All of this was possible because Darren believed God’s promise to lead by his Spirit. You’ll want to follow in his footsteps after this!
“God is looking for partners to do work alongside him.”
