For the first time ever, missionaries will share their stories through music, visual art and videos at the Tri-Lakes Center for the Arts.
TLCA in collaboration with the Little Log Church in Palmer Lake and the Church at Woodmoor will co-sponsor Artists and Missions. For one night only the community can see the art work of Marianne Millar, photography by Jennifer Bullock and hear the sounds of Karen Lafferty.
Artists and Missions is presented by Youth with a Mission Santa Fe along with Corazon de Dios de Honduras.
Lafferty is a well-known Christian musician and is best known for composing the song “Seek Ye First.” It was during a tour of Europe that Lafferty felt a calling to use her music in the mission field. She eventually joined YWAM Holland and founded Musicians for Missions. She now directs YWAM Santa Fe.
Millar has a passion for the visual arts and studied art training at the University of California, Davis. Over the years she has focused her paintings on Native Americans and Southwestern landscapes. Millar developed a love and passion to minister God's love to the Native Americans. She joined YWAM in 2006 and went to Antigua, Guatemala where she ministered to children and the Mayan Indians. She eventually joined YWAM Santa Fe where she blends her artistic talent with ministry.
Bullock is a full-time missionary in Honduras where she started Corazon, a ministry that educates Hondurans in nutrition and hygiene. She felt called to missions as a young girl and received missions training from YWAM. Bullock's photos and videos tell the stories of those she has ministered to over the years.
“As we share our own journeys as full-time missionaries through music, visual art, videos and stories we seek to inspire vision for the use of various art forms in the life of the local church, foreign missions and outreach to the lost,” Lafferty said in a statement.
Artists and Missions will take place at 7 p.m. Oct. 28 at TLCA. There is no charge however an offering will be taken that will benefit YWAM's work in Honduras.
TLCA executive director Dr. Michael Maddox said the center and churches are very excited to bring this program to the community.
