Stephen Proctor, in his own words, is a “missionary of beauty” and “curator of visual worship” who loves to create experiences that engage people’s imaginations and invite wonder and astonishment. Not only does he love to create these experiences, he is also passionate about teaching others how art can play a vital role in today’s church. Stephen is often a featured speaker at worship arts events such as SALT Nashville and the National Worship Leaders Conference. His iBook, Leading Visual Worship, is a training manual for anyone involved with media projection during worship gatherings. It’s a readable book for pastors and lay leaders of contemporary churches; one that describes the philosophy of visual arts in worship as well as the principles for best utilizing projected visual art in worship. If individuals sign up for the author's e-newsletter at Proctor’s website (Illuminate. us), they will receive the iBook at no charge. For creative communicators and designers of worship in the contemporary church today, this resource will inspire and equip them to raise the bar of their visual arts experiences in worship.
