This is miore under creative than ministry but I've been having some fun lately. I hear it's called Lowbrow art but I love it. It's art by guys like Ed Big Daddy Roth, Von Dutch, Von Franco and on and on. 60s and 70s car art. Here are a few pieces I've done recently. What do you think?

Hi Melissa, Thanks for checking the new site out. One of the things that is important to me in that is getting my wife's work out to the world. She is also a very gifted creative in her own right. One of the things I have become convicted of is I travel the country trying to encourage everyone to use their gifts to serve the Lord in the church and marketplace but I wasn't going that for the ones closest to me. I too am really excited to see this community picking up and building. I am grateful to Dan for setting up this 48 days . net. What a great place to give and receive encouragement.

Hi Christina, My experience has been this works with all ages. People get engaged with the painting, especially in the early stages when they are trying to decide what it is that I am making. By the time the piece is finished, the people are wondering what I am going to say about it and they are hooked. It's a big part of why I love what I do. It opens the door for the message. Give it a shot if you feel led to do that, but remember the stuff you're already doing has power too. Do what feels right and follow God's leading and I believe He will bring you to the expression that is right for you.

David, your website with your new products is great- thanks for the link to it. It reminds me of Nick Loper's website (Side Hustle Nation.com) except for artists!  I've not been on the 48 days site in a bit but I see all the comments through the emails- it's great to see the community building on here :)

David, yes, it's me performing an original song. I am more comfortable performing music live than art. I have done live cartoon worship at my home church's kids church and at one other church. I will be looking for more opportunities to do it in the near future. I want to see if the idea of "family worship" works rather than just kids' worship because I think there is also something for grownups in the songs and images. It will be interesting to see if the concept of a blended audience works because so far I've only tried it with kids. :)

Hi Christina,

I understand about live art. It can be messy, but the impact can be really great. But that's what I do. I really like what you do. Is that you performing that song? Is it original?

Keep me posted.

Thanks,

Dave

Welcome aboard Brad. I could surely use some of what you do. I am in itinerant ministry combining speaking and speed painting to communicate the Gospel. I have been pretty active, having been in over 100 churches in the last three years. The issue is I have to monetize a bit more to go much further.
Comment by Brad Voigt on January 12, 2015 at 10:14am

Super excited to learn about this group, also very excited to learn from you all.

I work for a ministry called Young Life.  I have been an Area Director in the Kansas City area for 15 years and this year began a new part-time role of Regional Innovation Director.  After I started to listen to Dan about five years ago I decided to start my own business on the side two years ago.  We do a multitude of things from social media training, website development, and VA work for clients. My wife and very much enjoy doing this together!

Our heart is to help people in ministry lean into a gifting or passion and monetize it so they have more freedom to do what they really are passionate about in ministry. All our clients are in some form of ministry and growing a platform.

So, I am super interested in what you all are doing creatively and how you're growing!  Looking forward to the community here.
