“Our God is an awesomely creative and wise artist among other things. I see in Scripture that God is all about fellowship and synergistic approaches to our journey together in Him in life. It is my contention that God would want to have artists join together to strengthen, collaborate and encourage each other in Him. Through this synergistic and spiritual journey, our lives as artist and those who appreciate and support artists, will see an expansive and spiritually enhanced creativity and harmony.”
