The Power of Artists in Community

We have a firm conviction that the future of Christianity looks to be increasingly influenced by Artists. Creatives who are experiencing the transforming love of God in their hearts and Artists whose expressions in music, art, film, theater, dance, communications will carry truth, beauty, love, hope, and faith into culture. 

We create and promote conversations about the power of what YOU, as a Creative, can do especially in collaboration with other Artists. The impact these Artists have in our culture, as they love one another, has the opportunity to be wildly immense and widespread. We believe in opening these doors and encouraging one another in these giftings.

Why be a part of the Artist Guild?

Because YOU—your creative expression, your relationships, the world around you . . . all get upgraded when you are living loved. As a son or daughter, you are loved directly by Him and through others being loved by Him.
You were DESIGNED to live loved.

A table is being set for a Southern California Community of Artists, Creatives, Storytellers and Make-Believers coming together around a beautifully prepared meal; creative inspiration; spiritual identity; and a powerful love for God, one another, and our neighbor. 

An awakening is happening in the hearts and imaginations of creative sons & daughters who are ALL IN around the world, especially in our region of Southern California. Third Chair is setting a place at the table for you if this resonates with your heart.

Won't you join us?
