The Worship and Fine Arts Ministry at Austin Oaks Church seeks to reach out to the greater Austin community through the creative arts. We believe that God bestows artistic and creative talents, and it is our responsibility to develop and use them for His glory and honor. The Visual Arts Ministry (VAM) Gallery and Monterey Oaks School of Fine Arts (MOSOFA) offers a natural bridge to encourage and grow Austin artists.
Monterey Oaks School of Fine Arts (MOSOFA)
Located on the campus of Austin Oaks Church, MOSOFA offers private lessons in voice and various instruments, as well as art and drama. Special camps focusing on specific art forms are also offered periodically. For more information, check out the MOSOFA website, or contact Mary Ellen Johnson.
The Children's Choir
For children in grades 1-5, the choir will explore the wonder of worship through music, great activities and time in God's word.
The Children's Choir meets on Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m. in CEC 207.
For more information, contact Mary Ellen Johnson.
Theatre Arts Ministry (TAM)
AOC now has a drama group called TAM (Theatre Arts Ministry) and there's a place in it for YOU. Our mission is to provide more dramatic arts at AOC during the services and in various venues and ministry areas. If you've ever thought that acting, building costumes, running sound, directing or writing is what you'd like to do to further the proclaiming of God's word, we'd like to meet you! For more information, contact Juanice Myers.
