RESOURCES

Every now and again, we come across some third-party resources that we think are amazing. We also think that pastors, media people, and creative folks will greatly benefit from grabbing ahold of them. For something to become a resource on this page, two things need to happen:

 * One of the Floodgate owners (Gary or Dave) needs to know the person who wrote/envisioned the resource.
 * One of the Floodgate owners (Gary or Dave) needs to have read/used the product being endorsed.

 

You'll be taken to a third-party website, and invited to purchase there. Floodgate Productions is not responsible for customer service, shipping, etc. for any of these resources. Additionally, these are not included in any Floodgate Subscription Plan or Discount Program.

PURSUING CHRIST. CREATING ART. (by Gary Molander))  

This book is written for people who are living in the intersection of the Christian faith, and the creation of art. By their nature, artists look at a life of faith differently, and that unique journey warrants an exploration of what it means to be a Christ-follower and an artist. The book intentionally veers away from tips and techniques and formulas, while concentrating on the journey, the mystery, and the heart.
