“Being a creative isn’t about sitting in a back office creating content, it’s about using the platform and resources God has given us to lead others closer to God.”
Austin is the Creative Director at Canvas Church in Alachua, Florida (Southwest of Jacksonville). As a Creative Director leading a handful of creative volunteers and staff, Austin’s focus as a creative goes beyond a printed piece, a social post, or b-roll for a video. Austin said, “Creatives exist to put visuals to the vision of the leadership, anything else outside their God-given vision is false advertising to the community.” Such a true and insightful thought. As Austin and his team work to bring consistency to the Canvas brand, they have realized that their creativity has led many to doorsteps of the church. Many who serve alongside Austin, including Austin himself, were drawn in to Canvas because of their message of real life and real love. Check out @canvas_fl to see the brand in action.
