Art and Creativity is one of the many ways God communicates His Good News to everyone. He gave us creative imaginations so we can express the Beauty of His Presence in a broken world, as well as share our own broken stories. Through the ARTS, the invisible becomes visible.
With this in mind our family is accepting His call to start a 2-fold Art and Creativity Ministry as part of YWAM (Youth With A Mission) where we will first teach and mentor young artists from around the world on any one of the campuses of the University of the Nations. We envision an atmosphere where students may encounter the Holy Spirit, inspiring them to "know God" deeper, and go out to creatively "make Him known". **
The other part of the ministry will be serving a local community through a Creative Center / Coffee House based on art and hospitality. We imagine a space where broken people may cross paths with their Savior and discover what it truly means to be a "New Creation".
The first step in this new adventure is to receive training through the YWAM Discipleship Training School at their campus in Kona, Hawaii. It will be 3 months in the classroom followed by a 3-month outreach phase somewhere else in the world. Like an artist pondering a blank canvas, starting this ministry is a definite step out into the unknown. It is literally impossible to do this on our own without a community of believing supporters. We invite you to boldly invest in this ministry along with us.
** YWAM's motto is "To know God and to make Him known".
