He is the artist, we are the brush. We exist to make Jesus famous.
What do we do?
We bring faith to life in living color through live painting performances, artistic workshops and training the next generation of artists. We offer live painting performances for ministry and fundraising events, artistic workshops for groups of all skill levels, original canvas paintings and prints. To learn more about our live events, please visit JesusPainter.com.
How do we serve our purpose?
In becoming a vessel for God we allow Him to use our passions and abilities to bring more people into a growing personal relationship with their savior, Jesus Christ. For JesusPainter, our gift and our passion is art. Therefore, we strive to use our artistic abilities to glorify God and advance His Kingdom. As artists, our abilities lie in our talent for sharing the Gospel through art and embodying the love of Christ in every interaction. Romans 12:6-9 calls all Christians to do whatever it is they were made to do. If it is teaching, let them teach. Serving, let them serve. Encouraging, let them encourage, and so on. Since our abilities lie in the realm of art we have formed a collective of artists to visually present the gospel at events worldwide. This is how we have become the brush in the hands of our God, the supreme Artist.
Guiding Principles of JesusPainter
Be the face of Jesus
Jesus is our standard for every interaction with event sponsors, attendees, partners, and all who work with us. Foster trust and genuine mutual care in every relationship.
Train for excellence and attitude
Train all artists to be both excellent in their work to the Lord and Christ-like in their actions and attitudes.
Do everything as unto the Lord – Colossians 3:23-24 – “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
Proclaim Truth and Preserve Peace
Boldly proclaim the Good News in word and work while maintaining a biblical commitment to living at peace with everyone as far as it depends on us (Romans 12:18).
Seek first the Kingdom of God
Our first priority should always be advancing God’s Kingdom, never our own. When we seek His Kingdom first our other needs will be met according to His will. Always begin with the primary decision-making filter: Does this bring glory to God?
Maintain an attitude of thankfulness
Give thanks to the Lord for all things in all situations, good or bad.
Plan with Prayer
Practice responsible stewardship of time and resources while always accounting for prayer.
