Jason Hildebrand Creative Arts was formed close to 25 years ago out of a deep desire to create and perform authentic hope-filled, Spirit-infused stories.
As a teenager, Jason was drawn to authentic heart-wide-open performers – those who called their audience into transformation. Add to this innovation and excellence and you have the building blocks of JHCA. All that was needed was bedrock to build on…
This came in the form of an encounter with the Spirit of the Creator in his late teens. For the first time, he clearly heard the Spirit’s voice and began a dialogue that continues to this day. In fact, a hallmark of JHCA is to learn and call others to the slow craft of hearing their own voice, the voices of those in their communities, and the voice of the Creator.
As the years have unfolded, Jason Hildebrand Creative Arts has become a creative engine immersed in relationship with God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. On this foundation, we craft, perform and empower transformative stories which seek to inspire people and communities to thrive as the best version of themselves.
Our productions have been experienced by hundreds of thousands of people for close to 25 years. Our influence has grown beyond only Theatre to include Film, Corporate and Faith-Based Communication Coaching, Artistic Direction for conferences and events, and mentoring artists and faith leaders.
What people are saying
"Authenticity, alignment and balance are at the core of Jason's coaching approach. I have seen individuals quickly achieve breakthroughs in their ability to communicate thoughts and ideas after working with Jason for a short period of time. Valuable approaches are personalized to how best the coachee learns and thinks, making them effective not just in the world of business. Jason's unique insights into human behaviour coupled with his deep passion for individual growth, allow him to be one of the most effective communication coaches I know."
"[Jason] is wonderfully gifted as an actor for he is able to portray not only the outward emotions of his character, but the inner motivation and character. He draws the audience into the scene, eliciting thought, feeling, and empathy. He does not offer just a break from the usual, but a deep and moving encounter with the message of the bible."
