The Brehm Center
The Brehm Center was founded to help ministry leaders consider and experience how the arts might shape their ministry practices in creative and theologically informed ways. Explore our programs and resources specially designed to equip pastors and ministry leaders in this unprecedented season of ministry. We offer both group experiences and resources that you can use on your own.
The mission of the Brehm Residency is to cultivate relationships between artists and ministry leaders who are mutually dedicated to the artistic renewal of our communities and their churches. The seven-month cohort includes a synchronous online curriculum and a series of online retreats, allowing opportunities for theological education, vocational encouragement, art-making, and deep relationships for artists, church leaders, and entire congregations––and ultimately for the renewal of our communities.
Part of the Brehm Preaching initiative, Micah Groups are a diverse community of Christian leaders who are committed to the convergence of worship, preaching, and justice. Micah Group members engage in courageous conversation around pressing issues of justice while being encouraged in personal discipleship and empowered as wise leaders who seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God.
Well-Formed Worship Leader
The Well-Formed Worship Leader Cohort is designed to address eight core areas of leadership in the vocation of worship leadership, including themes of spiritual, theological, cultural, and liturgical leadership. In this intimate, 10-week program, you will also examine pressing cultural conversations in worship leadership such as race and technology.
Dates for 2024 cohort coming soon.

The vocation of an artist
Creativity is not reserved for just a few talented people. It’s built into each one of us as a reflection of the Creator God.
Taught by Brehm Preaching Director Jennifer Ackerman, this course reflects on what it means to lead as appreciators of the arts.
The Arts in Worship
Taught by David Taylor, this course helps you to develop a clearer definition of what it means to worship through the arts.
Brehm Music exists to integrate musical expression with worship, theology, and art. This involves academic offerings, Fuller Chapel coordination, creation and publication of new music, as well as hosting or participating in conferences, events, and church consultations.
The vision of Brehm Preaching is to proclaim Jesus Christ and to catalyze a movement of empowered, wise preachers who seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God, leading others to join God’s mission in the world.
Brehm Visual Arts
The Brehm Visual Arts initiative supports Christian engagement with the visual arts, exploring their formative and theological importance in respect to persons, worshipping communities, and the society at large. Through resources, programs, and mentorship opportunities, Brehm Visual Arts follows the way faith can inform visual art and visual art can shape faith.
