To see artists fulfill their calling and Kingdom purpose
“Connecting artists with community and resources to support and help fulfill their life and kingdom purposes.”
Revelation 12:11 states “They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.” We believe that this passage states clearly the power of the combination of story and Gospel in the world. Because of this, we believe that artists are in a unique position through the development and expression (both overt and underlying) of their faith to impact the world in powerful and distinct ways.
Throughout scripture God develops, sustains, and works mightily in and through community. It is in the place where lives overlap that people encourage, stretch, and provide insight to one another. Because of this we believe that the healthiest environment for the growth and development of artists is in community.
Homes, cities, and nations in fact cannot be built without resources. The same reality is true for the careers and work of artists. Because of this we are committed how and when we can to help bring resourcing to artists so that they might do their work and impact the world through it.
As each of us grow through life and experiences we gain a depth of knowledge, year over year, which helps us to better fulfill what we set our energies to accomplish. Apart from opportunity, there may be no more valuable resource in that journey than someone who will come along side us and provide wisdom, encouragement, refinement, and support. We seek to come along side artists to help them develop spiritually, vocationally, creatively, emotionally, and relationally and to provide support and encouragement along their paths toward God’s desires for them.
The very first thing in the Genesis account we know of God, is His action as Creator. This is integral not only to our existence but also our theology and how we as people can represent God’s nature. Moreover, helping people to see common realities through different lenses can provide a life changing impact. Because of this we seek to not only encourage artists in their efforts to do so but also to engage with them in ways that can provide those moments for them as well.
