Our Story . . . so far
A little over 30 years ago, I walked into a gathering in San Diego that would forever change my life. The artists who were playing were really good, but in the midst of those songs being sung, I was experiencing something so much bigger than just the music.
It was living there in the music. In the midst of that crowd I was connecting with something or someone I was searching for my entire life . . . the love of God.

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.
