About Circle


Circle is a ministry of Courtyard Media Ministries which began over 40 years ago as Courtyard Music. In 1985, that beginning gave birth to Courtyard Media Ministries. Always involved in educating and inspiring young people as well as adults, the vision for training was formalized in 2009 with the founding of a very special school for arts, media, and ministry--CIRCLE! Through seminars across the country, consultation, and involvement in CMM live productions, literally thousands of talented individuals have already been trained and motivated to excellence. Now, Circle represents the next level of challenging and rewarding mentoring and instruction.


One of the most exciting and unique aspects of the Circle program is the opportunity for students to participate in professional live productions such as the Randy Estelle and Le Voci Christmas Show. Students also present an annual theater production as well as their year end Showcase which have both received rave reviews. Classes are held in our beautiful 5,200 sq. ft. facility at 3220 59th Dr E #101, Bradenton, FL 34203.

The Vision

The ultimate vision for Circle includes a state-of-the-art performing arts hall and media development center for web, video, film and recording arts. Plans are ongoing for capital expansion and design concepts. The Circle leadership team envisions students from across the nation and around the world receiving a passionate call and thorough equipping for representing the Kingdom of God in the culture.
