Cultivating the Spiritual Life and Creative Work of Artists
September / October 2014 News
Roy went to England! Thank you to those of you from The Grove Community who have sent me to England. I was able to meet and minister to many artists at an event called David's Tent. It truly was a dream of mine to travel to England. While I was there I believe the Lord shared some of His heart for the UK with me as I fell in love with the people, the history and the music. I visited Kingdom Faith Church, hung out with Joe Urquhart's family in Horsham, visited with the "Brilliant Blake" family in Cambridge, stayed in London with Matthew & Sarah Taylor & went to an amazing evening of music at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club in London. At David's Tent, over 3500 worshippers gathered together to lavish their praise and worship upon the Lord for 3 days! John Mark McMillan, Jonathan & Melissa Helser, Jason Upton, Loud Harp, Danny O'Callaghan & Sean Feucht were a few of the artists serving at David's Tent.

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.
