Created for Change exists to help people who want to change something in the world around them, understand their place in the world, and discover how their unique giftings might allow them to make a difference. - Joel Ohman


Created for Change is for people who read a poll and are concerned by what many of the people around them believe. It’s for people who see something wrong in the world and want to make it right. It’s for people who are already convinced that something needs to be done, but they just aren’t sure what exactly they should do or whether their efforts will have any impact.

It’s for people who want to be persuasive and make a difference on a large scale, or at least to contribute, play a part in change, and know that what they are doing, no matter how small, is making a difference.

It’s for creators, influencers, business owners, entrepreneurs, leaders, talkers, servers, action-takers, and makers. This is for you. This is for me. This is for us. This is how we can change the world around us.

Learn and study with me how culture change really happens, with stories of real-life people, some famous, some not, all just living regular everyday lives of faithfulness, who are all living out their creative callings in a way that shapes and changes the culture all around us.

And we will see how it all fits together. How God has created each of us different, our multifaceted creative types all working together to reflect something important about our Creator who intends for us to image and represent Him to the world. We are better together. And only in so doing will we usher in His shalom.
