There are many different ministries in our area, our goal is to not do the same thing as everyone else but, to come alongside those ministries and support or fill in the gaps. While we minister primarily with the arts, we listen to the needs of the community and our ministry reflects that. Because we are a small ministry, and we have a very supportive board of directors, we are able to be flexible. That flexibility makes us able to effectively make a difference in peoples lives. Sometimes it may be small like discipleship or bringing food to a rehab or giving a necessities bag to someone on the street. Other times it might be bigger like bringing the community together though performances or playing music for a crowd. Below is a list of some of the ministries that we support and that support us and some that we just love. Click on any of the pictures to go to their web sites.
