Thank you for your interest in the School of Fine Arts at Houston’s First Baptist Church. We believe that if we take David’s words in Psalms 33:3 and “play skillfully before the Lord,” it is, therefore, our responsibility as a church to provide the venue by which one may learn to do so with excellence.
The city of Houston is known for its artistic expression and cultural diversity. We believe that Houston’s First Baptist Church is known for exceptional music, dynamic programming, and a constant pursuit of excellence within a warm and welcoming environment. It is this reputation that lays the foundation upon which The School of Fine Arts is built in service to people within and outside of the church.
The School of Fine Arts offers instruction to novices and experts by Christian artistic professionals in multiple disciplines. It is resolved to develop the unique God-given talents of children and adults to their fullest potential for service in ministry, their profession, or simply for personal enjoyment.
Supporting the School
The School of Fine Arts Scholarship Fund directly benefits students in need of financial assistance. Over the course of SoFA’s existence we have given out over $20,000 in scholarship to students who otherwise could not have taken lessons. Each semester our Scholarship Committee meets and prayerfully considers the needs of our students and awards resources accordingly. Please consider how you might contribute to this program.
