Third Chair . . . the expression of LOVE overflowing the hearts of Roy & Christine Cochran

In a culture that can be preoccupied with NEW and YOUNG, who would believe that we are experiencing our BEST, most FULLY-ALIVE and ENJOYABLE season in ministry EVER in our 50's? What if EVERYONE could continually be experiencing the LOVE of their heavenly Father? 

I'd love to INVITE you to our next gathering called LIVING LOVED - Experiencing Father's Love, to communicate with you a little bit of the "WHY" behind the "WHAT" we at Third Chair are up to with Party for the SoulArtist Table and Living Loved 2 Day Encounters and to invite YOU to join together with us. What Father has invited us into is SO MUCH BIGGER than the two of us.

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.
