Missional Artists

"Our ministry is combined with being professional artists and working with church planting/church leadership development. Dave is a skilled potter and photographer. Rachel is a dancer, singer and mother of three active young children. Dave operates a traditional pottery studio, where he creates pottery and ceramic art from behind a well-trafficked storefront window. Passersby can see him working and have an opportunity to come inside and talk directly with the artist. He also teaches private classes to better develop connections with people and open their eyes to a God who restores through the clay-making process. In addition to the studio, Dave teaches and shepherds young men in the local church he helped plant."
