Join a community of inspired artists – creating, collaborating, and connecting. This is a hub for creatives of all types - a vehicle of support and encouragement for artists in an evolving culture to glorify God with our creative gifts and talent.
Community Groups are satellite groups that connect artists from around the world. Pray for the Arts meets on the 3rd Friday of each month on Zoom, with new virtual community groups begin in November of 2020! Come hear stories of inspiration and faith journeys of creatives and find community. On-site groups in Southwest Florida are currently not in session until the Spring of 2021.
Here's what group participants are saying:
"Through the community arts initiative, I have had the opportunity to discuss the arts and the challenges artists face with other artists. These discussions have shown me that I am not alone in my struggles as an artist and that there are Christian artists willing to discuss their faith and their art as a way to encourage each other. By encouraging artists in their passion as a way to glorify God and by facilitating community between artists, artists will grow not only in their art, but also in their faith."

"Our Zoom meetings have been a gift to hear God’s spirit speaking through many unique voices and to see people seeking God together on behalf of the artists. We often land on the hope and promise of revival, which I am confident is coming through this shaking season. As an artist, these times have encouraged me to be more open and willing to share my gift, feeling a sense of urgency to offer hope. We really cannot wait until the timing is perfect. The time is now. I am grateful to be a part!"

“Storytellers brings together artists from various disciplines, who all share a common faith in Jesus. I have found a supportive community both to pray with and to pray for others. It gives a unique perspective on how everyone has been affected by this pandemic and the lock-downs imposed, and how we all need prayer.”
