"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer." 
~ Matt. 21:22

He Calls Us 

"And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified."

~ Romans 8:30
Have you ever sat back and looked at your life and thought to yourself "Lord, how did I get here"?  It seems that Zach and I have been having a lot of those days lately, unsure how God could have chosen us for the work that He allows us to do within this ministry.  Not all of you know our testimonies, so we invite you to read them. However, this is no longer who we are, but only the starting point, the lump of clay that God started with to mold us into all He wants us to be.  I am sure that many of you have similar stories of how God redeemed you from the pit and you too understand this Scripture in Romans as intimately as we do.  We didn't do anything special, we just allowed God to do the work and continue doing the work.  

And what is that work? We believe for us it is unite the Body of Christ within the local artist community. He has provided us so many amazing connections to fellow servants and ministries that seek to do the same. For each of us, it is personal, a calling by God. He has equipped (or justified) us to do the work and now he is starting to glorify us through His Son Jesus Christ to allow us to do event more for His People.  We are honored and we seek to live out our days remembering where we came from and exactly why we are doing what we do.

Uniting the Body

"Thrilled" is not a strong enough word to share the excitement that is in our heart at what God is doing to bring together local art ministry leadership here in the local community. We are so humbled that God has put this mission on our heart and seek Him for every step of the way. For many years, it has been a cry of our hearts through prayer and now that we have begun to see it happen before our eyes, we are just overjoyed at how He has made it possible! 

Thursday, January 24th at 7pm, God gathered over a dozen of His arts leaders at the FHL office in Castleton to meet each other.  Each shared their passion for the call that God had placed on their heart to serve him in the local arts community. One in attendance was dance ministry leader, Tiffany Johnson who founded Sacred Dance Institute, a ministry that allows the talent of dance to usher in the Holy Spirit and bring about restoration and healing...they call it "deliverance through dance".  (Continue reading by clicking here)

A Call Out to Arts Leadership

Jerry Twombly has over 40 years of experience in working with non-profits throughout the world, assisting over 3.500 ministries.  He has a passionate heart to forward the Kingdom of God through his mission of "Funding Your God-Given Vision Through Rational Development".  Sound like someone you would like to meet? Well, it just so happens that the Lord has turned Jerry's heart to specifically working within the arts community right here in Indianapolis.  Zach and I have had the great pleasure of sitting and talking to this man of God about our vision to see the Indianapolis artist community unite.  We have some very specific directives from God on how we are to be a part of this, some are starting to surface even now, such as bringing the local arts ministry leadership together.  Other strategies include a very clear vision for an arts community center. God is able! We invite you to watch this video that Jerry has prepared especially for us as leaders of the local arts community. (Video begins at sec. 58)

We now ask you..."Are you one that is called to be a part of this movement?" If so, we would love to meet and pray with you about what God is putting in your heart and mind - contact us. We also invite you to join our next Arts Ministry Leadership Gathering in May. You can read all about it here.  And if the Lord is leading you to contact Jerry, please do that as well. We each have a part to play - "Now you are the body of Christ, and each of is a part of it" ~ 1 Cor. 12:27.

Film Blog - A New Profile of Self-Harm

Matthew 28 commands us to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” But how do we reach people for Christ? In Haiti, it would be very difficult to preach the gospel as a woman if you were wearing shorts because Christian women in Haiti always wear skirts. In some parts of Africa, many preach the gospel by telling picture stories because that is what resonates with them. (Continue reading by clicking here)
