“May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.” Ephesians 3:18
God has extended our reach of ministry amid a lingering pandemic, through social and virtual media - enabling us to reach thousands more with the Gospel and the arts.
Over seven months ago (hard to believe), the world was hit with a pandemic that not only claimed thousands of lives and dismantled a thriving economy but the escalation of violence, depression, substance abuse, and suicides are increasing at an accelerated speed every day. Amid the uncertainties, pain, and loss, we have been given a powerful resource to communicate the hope and love of Christ to people worldwide.
We launched Creatives Connect on social media, reaching thousands; a virtual arts ministry with local partners, Crossroads Recovery at the David Lawrence Center, Youth Haven, and others, in addition to launching two virtual bible studies for men and women.
We have been a powerful resource to communicate to spreading the hope and love of Christ to people worldwide.
An urgency to focus on artists led us to launch “Pray for the Arts” – a monthly Zoom meeting for artists to pray for the arts, support artists, and collaborate on ways to serve God and the community during these times. The arts community was one of the hardest hit, crippling the industry to the point that theaters and other arts and entertainment venues are shut down – some that will not reopen. Artists around the USA and beyond are connecting, and we are seeing God move in these groups.
We are grateful for the prayers and support of our donors, partners, and board as we broaden the scope of transforming the world through the arts, one heart at a time.
“May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3:19
