About Us

The Progressive Christian Artists Network exists to help progressive Christian artists of all kinds find and support each other, and to help people and congregations connect with those artists. It's not a business, or a church, or a denomination. It's a loosely-knit platform for progressive Christians to foster art that expresses the faith, questioning, and journeys of people who call themselves progressive Christians.

There is no single definition of what a "progressive Christian" is. Our network includes artists and their supporters with a variety of theological, cultural, and political perspectives. If you or your church are committed to tolerance, inclusion, social justice, and critical reflection upon scripture and tradition in your walk of discipleship, you will find community here. If you find yourself leaning forward toward emerging expressions of Christian worship and ways of understanding the divine, then you'll be glad you came. Labels like "liberal," "left," or "evangelical" need no apologies here, but neither are they sufficient. That being said, there is a certain family resemblance within the network.

Leadership

PCAN was started by The SHIFT Collective, a group of four progressive Christian musicians: Richard Bruxvoort-Colligan, Christopher Grundy, Andra Moran,and Bryan Sirchio. The network arose out of a series of SHIFT events, which were designed to bring progressive Christian musicians together. Please use the contact page for questions and suggestions about this site.
