2019 Spring Update - part 5 Life, family, ministry Third Chair

It’s Tax Time: Consider investing in us

Many of us “invest” a portion of what God brings into our lives. We would so welcome any gifts you would make at this time. We are experiencing a season described in John 4:35.

John 4:35-37 The Passion Translation (TPT)

35 As the crowds emerged from the village, Jesus said to his disciples, “Why would you say, ‘The harvest is another four months away’? Look at all the people coming—now is harvest time! For their hearts are like vast fields of ripened grain—ready for a spiritual harvest. 36 And everyone who reaps these souls for eternal life will receive a reward. And those who plant spiritual seeds and those who reap the harvest will celebrate together with great joy! 37 And this confirms the saying, ‘One sows the seed and another reaps the harvest.’


Our Invitation to YOU

More and more people are coming to our gatherings and inviting others who they believe NEED to come and connect. We are sowing good seed. We are seeing and experiencing fruit. We would love to invite you to join us in setting a table for these sons & daughters who are creatively & spiritually alive. As you can imagine, setting a table for anywhere from 50 to 150 people has it’s expenses. We have found that CONNECTIONS and CREATIVITY help keep these expenses to an “loaves & fishes” minimum. We would love to invite you to pray about helping us set a table for these artists to have an encounter with the love of God.

Here are some ways you can invest in us

with either a single investment or a monthly investment.


Underwrite a Gathering:

This gift covers everything at an Artist Guild Gathering - food & beverages & all the additional “stuff” for 50 people! An artfully prepared meal by our in-house chef! Please keep in mind that many from the ARTIST community are not necessarily financially “happening” yet. Your gift allows everyone a place at the table, including YOU!

Cover Coffee for One-on-One Mentoring meetings

This gift sets the table for a one-on-one conversation with Roy and an artist. THESE conversations are powerful! These conversations are regular.

Pray about investing with us monthly.

Let’s face it, living by faith can be tough for us all. Whether you are a teacher or in construction, a doctor or in law enforcement, any vocation we step into is because we believe God will join us there and we will become a point where our co-workers can become exposed to the overflow of God loving us. We look at our work the same way - that all of us are involved in “sacred work”. All of us have opportunities to RESPOND or WORSHIP God in our own unique way. Giving is one of those ways we can worship. We are honored to steward every offering that comes in top fuel our efforts. Doors that continue to open to us need finances to step through them. We trust that God stirs the hearts of His people and provides for us all. Pray about investing into Christine & I through Third Chair and the hundreds of lives God touches through our ministry. THANK YOU !!!

To all of you who are supporting Third Chair with your monthly financial gifts. Every dollar we receive seems to go SO FAR. God is encouraging us through you. It’s nothing short of miraculous how we can follow Father where He leads us, all He invites us into and how He provides through you, His kids who pass along His provision where He directs. It’s not a small thing He is doing - teaching us all how to follow Him into areas larger than we believe we are capable of entering into. We are simply and truly grateful.

Thank you! Your investment financially allows us to invest our lives totally to this work of sowing into the lives of people.
