The Center for Faith & the Arts (CFA) is a 501(c)3 organization founded in 1995 as a result of the vision and work of Dr. J. Daniel Brown, retired Catawba College professor. 

“Dan’s original vision is exactly where we still are, but our methods of delivering that mission to the community have evolved and changed over the years,” explains long-term Board Member Mark Ritchie. Dan's original vision continues to unfold in new exciting ways thanks to a passionate Board of Directors, committed staff, numerous dedicated volunteers, and the multitude of artists within our own community.
