Discover Your Fit
It is our goal at New Hope Christian College to train up Creative Arts students who will discover their unique contribution in presenting the gospel in new and creative ways using the gifts and passions that the Lord has placed within them. To accomplish that goal, we have created a top notch Creative Arts program that not only has a strong biblical foundation, but also has the distinction of having excellent teaching, and extremely practical training in ministry and in deep, heartfelt communication of the gospel that will not only reach a mind, but touch hearts for eternity. Throughout the course of the year, the Creative Arts program brings in various professional artists to spend concentrated time sharing their craft through master classes, concerts and speaking into the lives of our students.

Deploy Your Ministry
Student Led Chapels: Every student at NHCC, regardless of their major, is part of a chapel team whose responsibility it is to create, plan, program, teach and lead worship for the entire service.

Drama Production: Each year, the Creative Arts Department produces two drama productions featuring original student or faculty work, and classic theater repertoire.

Spring Musical: Each spring combines all of our Creative Arts teams and entire student body together to produce a full-scale musical theater production.
