About Us

“Jesus is the master storyteller. We take pieces of His story and mold them with our own – written, spoken, crafted, sung – and use them to help navigate this thing called life.” Jason Ramsey, ALTARWORK Founder/Executive Director
“THEN I WILL GO TO THE ALTAR OF GOD, TO GOD MY EXCEEDING JOY; AND I WILL PRAISE YOU WITH THE HARP.” (Psalm 43:4)
“LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE BEFORE OTHERS, SO THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORK AND GIVE GLORY TO YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN.” (Matthew 5:16)

WELCOME TO ALTARWORK

ALTARWORK is a publishing and promotional outlet for all things worship arts. We are building a global family of Christian creatives, and we would love for you to join us. We’re a little different as far as publications go. We’ve positioned ourselves as a modern hybrid online magazine/promotional platform/networking community. We publish all mediums of Christian Creative Art in a unique, social-media-driven, interactive online magazine. We then work with our artists to market and promote their material. We want to showcase and promote the gifts that God has given us to help inspire people and spread the Gospel. You’ll find many forms of writing, many genres of music, and many mediums of art. We are apolitical and interdenominational (read: all denominations) — we publish material from all across the Christian spectrum and have featured artists from five continents. 

Join our growing artist family! We always have an open door for submissions of all kinds. See our submissions page for more information.

FAITH STATEMENT

“ALTARWORK is a Christian ministry that embodies belief in the Trinity — God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Holy Bible, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Nicene Creed, and the Apostle’s Creed. We acknowledge that while not all of our content is overtly or obviously Christian, all of our featured artists and their work are Christian in nature and spirit. We are a creative community. We don’t pretend to have all of the Heavenly answers. We relish the challenges of our humanness, of all shades dark and light, and use our creativity as an outlet to explain, interpret, question, and ultimately praise the God on High.”

OUR TEAM

Jason Ramsey

Jason is the guy behind ALTARWORK — vision, design, development, communications, content, marketing, etc. He’s married with five kids and walks the tightrope of family, job, and ministry with both eagerness and unease. He is a Michigan lifer, works full-time in a leadership role at a hospital, and has had writing published at Patheos, The Mudroom, The Bees Are Dead, My Ink Dance, Venn Magazine, and others.

Sarah Rennicke

Sarah loves words. She also loves people. And she loves weaving them together in honest and vulnerable ways that cut underneath the surface and break open the longings of the heart. Her words breathe vulnerability and hope into longing souls. She enjoys slowing down and listening to the heartbeats of this world, and believes that we are all desiring to be seen, known and loved. Sit with her awhile, both here at sarahrennicke.com.

This is an encouraging forum for those finding their voice, and sharing a story within a Story. There is no hidden agenda or price for admission. This is art at its core, meant to invoke emotion and action.

So, here’s the thing. We creative folk need to belong. Sometimes, that’s in the flesh, something that’s in the spirit. Here’s a place with some spectacular earthy people — a virtual hangout, spirit connection. This is visionary work.
