Friends, we are so excited to introduce you to our Next Step . . .

What is ThirdChair ministries?

ThirdChair ministries is the brand new ministry Roy & Christine Cochran have just started. We believe God has invited us to take this next step with Him in loving people, in helping them discover and deepen their personal relationship with God, to gain an identity as sons & daughters being loved by a heavenly Father and to manifest that love to their world. The specific people group of our focus is and has been the creative community of people known as artists. We believe that through ThirdChair, God desires to encourage artists to make room for the reality of His presence. ThirdChair will be active in setting a table and opening doors for artists, that through their artistic expression, each manifestation of the love of God that pours out of their hearts will bring light, beauty, hope, healing and love into our world, into our communities, into our churches and into our hearts.

Meet with Roy

Most days, Roy can be found speaking with a musician, a worship leader, a visual artist, tech director, an author or writer in a coffee house in Southern California about their life, their art and their relationship with God. Many or most have devoted their full time hours vocationally as an artist. Many serve in churches. Many do not. They all have three things in common. First, they are all gifted artists in their area of creativity. Second, they all desire to connect their life and art more with God. Third, someone introduced them to Roy. 

Roy believes God deeply loves artists. Not more than any other people but uniquely because of the intentional way He fashioned and created them to be ministers of beauty.
