Fine Arts is a ministry that allows students to discover and develop their gifts.  Students may present or submit entries into the divisions of Art, Communication, Drama, Exhibition, Instrumental, Vocal and Writing.

We believe the world is changing and moving to a more arts-dominant culture with media being the driving force.  We believe it is our job to develop Christian creatives to help shape the culture of the arts.  We are doing that through Fine Arts in helping students in Ohio to discover, develop, and deploy their gifts in the ARTS.

Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of Ohio Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop and deploy their ministry gifts.

Each year students begin preparing their entries. Students may enter in as many as 75 categories offered in 9 main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Enterprise, Exhibition, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing.


Additional questions can be received by emailing:

No, All registrations must be received by the deadlines given at the top of the webpage.

All performance schedules will be released on-site.

The registration fee covers your admission to all of the conference, including one category entry. It does not include meals, transportation, or lodging


All writing and video entries must be sent to by February 25th


Here is a step by step guide to help you as the youth pastor get your students signed up for Fine Arts Festival.

Fill out the registration form by clicking “Student Registration” which also includes a downloadable paper form for each student’s individual registration.

Return all completed paper forms to:

Ohio Ministry Network

Attn: Fine Arts Committee

8405 Pulsar Place

Columbus, Ohio 43240

This completes your registration process!

We recommend you look over the rule book and make sure that your students are well informed of the expectation on the categories that they choose to participate in. Getting points deducted can be very avoidable if you are aware of all of the category requirements. We recommend this every year, since the national office revises the rule book annually.

Set time aside for your students to practice their entries together.

Also consider inviting in mentors to enrich this process even more.


And then finally attend the festival on March 29th and 30th!
