Drawn To The Word


RAWN TO THE WORD is the artistic ministry and mission of Paul Oman, pastor and professional artist. Paul creates larger-than-life sized murals of any Bible story or theme in less than an hour as audiences are engaged by watching the process. The Biblical story comes to life before your eyes, impacting lives and congregations in profound ways.

You choose the theme; PAUL paints the story. Events are planned in conjunction with the congregation/event host involving musical talent of the congregation and community, or Paul can provide a pre-scripted event with music and narrations.

To see a story created on canvas before your eyes is a unique and powerful experience which brings people of all ages and denominations together.

Paul_PaintingPaul paints during worship services, educational events, retreats, special events such as weddings, anniversaries, and retirements, youth gatherings, conferences, college choral performances, camps, outdoor settings, memorial events, outreach events, disaster relief efforts, school and corporate events, and more.

He has painted during choral performances of the Wartburg College Choir and with musicians/singers/songwriters/bands on stage.

Paul’s painting process compliments most styles of music, worship, and events, from contemporary to high liturgical, and from outdoor street events to camps and professional concert appearances.

All-Community Mural


HE ALL-COMMUNITY MURAL is a natural outflow of Drawn to the Word. Instead of Paul doing the painting, the community comes together and creates a magnificent paint by number mural. The mural can then be used for worship, can be painted to change with lighting (think glow in the dark or blacklight effects), and is perfect for using for a variety of events including community concerts, drama performances, children’s programs, special events, and more.

Bring your congregation or community together with the power of art.
