who we are
Birth and Purpose
EnArts is a non-denominational, Christian outreach ministry using the arts. After a long “gestation” period, EnArts was born on January 1, 2012. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3), federally tax-exempt corporation, headquartered in Kansas City, MO. Our purpose is to shine the light and love of God to audiences and artists alike through the performing arts, as expressed in the “prime directive”: Moving Hearts toward God through the Arts.

That’s what “EnArts” means: All sorts of life-producing performing arts.
