John Mark Nelson is a songwriter & producer living and working in Saint Paul, Minnesota. At a young age, he received national attention for his self-produced works, "Still Here" and "Waiting and Waiting", which were followed by extensive national and international touring. In recent years, Nelson has continued to generate a high volume of recorded works, tour nationally and internationally, and produce and record work for many acclaimed artists and songwriters.
This summer we will be hosting our first Songwriting Workshop and Retreat at Art House North! This will be a space for you to learn and grow in your songwriting with workshops led by Sara Groves and other amazing songwriters (other facilitators TBA). Cost does not include travel and hotel, but covers all programming and meals from 2:30 on Friday, August 17 through a closing mealtime on Saturday the 18th.
In addition, there will be a limited number of 1hr one-on-one songwriting mentor sessions with Sara on Thursday and Friday morning before the workshop begins Friday afternoon.
Our time together will include a lot of good food, conversation about the role of the songwriter, practical creative writing help, small group opportunities to share songs with other songwriters, and an intimate writer-in-the-round with Sara and Friends. We look forward to seeing you!
*The one-on-one sessions cannot be purchased apart from the workshop, and will be scheduled first come first serve (we will follow up with you to schedulea a time, post registration)
It feels good to host a night at Art House North once again! Join our friend, Steve Wiens for a night of storytelling, song, and a chance to be a part of a live recording of his podcast, This Good Word. He’ll be joined by author Shawn Smucker, who wrote the award winning novel The Day the Angels Fell, along with musical guests Steve and Heidi Haines, who will be sharing songs from their soon-to-be-released album. Steve will be talking about Midrash, which sees Divine Revelation not as the final word but as just the beginning of an ongoing conversation with God.
Tickets are $10 and includes coffee and a treat from Brake Bread.
Bucket Brigade offers theater classes and workshops to challenge and encourage students to freely express themselves, work in an ensemble, and effectively communicate physically and vocally.
We don’t just “do theater games.” We are passionate about creating new work– honestly wrestling with ideas and communicating them thoughtfully and imaginatively through art. We love inspiring students to find their voice and communicate what’s in their head and heart.

This is a private event for our sweet friends who helped fund the record.
"The ecological teaching of the Bible is simply inescapable: God made the world because He wanted it made. He thinks the world is good, and He loves it. It is His world; He has never relinquished title to it. And He has never revoked the conditions, bearing on His gift to us of the use of it, that oblige us to take excellent care of it."
- Wendell Berry
As Christ followers, we want to steward this earth that God has created. Join us, with Ben Rosenbush, Sarah Ann Nelson, and Sara Groves, for a night of artistic response to this issue of Creation Care.
