making room in the hearts & imaginations of the Artist community to be experiencing the love of God and to have that love seen, heard and experienced by people in the church and outside the church through the expression of these Artists . . . that's what happens at our Gatherings
Why care for ARTISTS? We believe God has ordained the Arts, and because He uses people, we believe God designed the Artist to play a central role in sharing the Good News of the love of Jesus to every tribe, every tongue, to every nation. Artisans tell the story of God's beauty, truth and goodness in the most compelling way imaginable.
The Artist's Table Gatherings - I love the way God invites us to His table. Jesus seemed to always share life changing truths around a meal. At the Artist's Table Gatherings, we hope to take all we learned from hosting Grove Gatherings for 3 years and curate a new experience, develop a new community together around the Table.
Roy has been curating Artists Gatherings on a local & national level for the last 8 years. A new season of Gatherings are currently being curated for Southern California called The Artist Table. Artists are invited to come together to share a meal and feed each other's souls. These unique times together are filled with inspiration, love, space and the gift of BEING with others like you . . . with artists who are "all in" with the calling God has given them. These Gatherings have proved to be SO vital to the transformational work God does in our hearts as artists, who so often work in isolation and tend to be introverts. To hear and share each others stories, to be encouraged by another artist, to be mentored, pastored, loved & inspired is not normal for most artists, including those who serve at most churches.
Here are a few photos from some of our Gatherings
