We help churches engage their communities with the gospel.
Creative Missions pairs media professionals with under-resourced churches and creates sustainable solutions that engage their communities with the gospel. Teams donate a week of onsite creative help to 10-15 churches and produce videos, websites, logos, printed items, tech solutions, and much more. We've covered a lot of ground since our first trip in 2011!

The need for the gospel is great in Montana. Approximately 85% of Montanans do not have a relationship with Christ and 75% are unchurched. Many communities and towns are without an evangelical presence.
Montana boasts both Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, rolling grassy plains, beautiful rivers and lakes, abundant wildlife, and over nineteen mountain ranges. Pastors are praying the spiritual landscape of Montana will reflect its physical landscape as seeds of the gospel are sewn, communities are loved on, and God starts new churches from the gathering of new believers.
Creative Missions wishes to help churches impact lostness in Montana.
Many of the churches are small (10-300), remote, and feel isolated, but Montana is currently experiencing explosive growth across the state including Bozeman.
We are basing out of Bozeman, a young, vibrant city, and the fastest growing community in America. In fact, the tech industry is driving growth as Google and Amazon are in the process of building locations.
Pastors are excited about Creative Missions loving their state and serving their churches.
A few quotes from pastors and Creative Missionaries ...
I believe in conferences, but I believe in missions, and that's why I would choose #creativemissions any day over a conference.Jon Carlson (Milwaukee, WI)
Just as our arms are about to give out and we are about to give up, you lift our arms so we can continue the work that God has called us to.Brian Zimmerman (Baltimore, MD)
Churches aren't called to be nostalgic time warps, they are called to be relevant, representative communities.Vajaah Parker (Washington, DC)
I was reminded how important it is to step back and remember why I do what I do - fresh perspective, fresh passion and excitement for how God can use my gifts to further his kingdom.Tim Gaskins (Boulder, CO)
Mission teams come and help, but Creative Missions does it the right way. No other organization has been as effective at helping. What you guys did in two days would take us two years.Michael Crawford (Baltimore, MD)
