“I saw the Angel in the marble and I carved until I set him free.”
God is looking for the artist who is willing to carve pathways that lead others to His heart. He is looking for those who want to impact the earth with the glory art of Heaven, regardless of fame and fortune. To dream, create and change culture through songs, stories, art, dance.
God wants us to have our identity so deeply rooted in Him that we will take risks that take us beyond the desire for importance or reputation; to unlock doors that take us and others into realms of encounter through our art.
Unlocking Creative Identity is about uncovering what it really means to be the artist God wants you to be. One that sees the angel in the marble and will chip away piece by piece until what is seen in the mind’s eye can be seen by many.
