Cultivating the Spiritual Growth and Creative Work of Artists
May 2013 News
Thought I’d drop you a quick note this afternoon. Tomorrow morning I get on a plane bound for Nashville for 9 days of ministry AND I have a NEW website I want to share with you here in the newsletter.
thoughts • My son Trevor and his band just played their first live gig outside of the garage at his high school’s Battle of the Bands. I was so happy for him on a number of levels. First of all, he and his band mates have been woodshedding and putting in the hours rehearsing and writing music in the garage. To see the fruit of their investment into what they are passionate about was so cool to witness. Better yet, I really like their music! As his Father, there are some things I am excited about for him. First, my son is an artist. He is gifted in film, photography & music. To see him stepping more into his giftedness and seeing the fruit of his investment into his art is a thrill for dad. Mostly because Trevor seems most fulfilled and happy, most ALIVE when he’s growing in his gifting.

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.
