BLOG

Every day all around the globe, artists on mission are creating, cultivating, and contributing in their communities. As they seek to see their art used in the work the Lord is doing, we want to share their stories to encourage and inspire.
This blog is a place to read those stories, giving you a glimpse into how the Lord is using the arts around the world.

This week, we talked with another of the participants in the Virtual Artist Residency program. Read below to hear how Chris grew in his technical skills as well as his identity as an artist.

We’ve spent the past couple of weeks telling you about long-time partner and friend Colin Harbinson.
