“Young artists do not often fit in well with church sponsored youth programs that emphasize physical recreation. To close the gap, Masterpiece Ministries was founded in 1995 to help young people identify and develop their gifts in the arts and to encourage them to become whole hearted followers of Jesus Christ”. This is the mission and vision of this wonderful visual arts ministry.

Basically if you are a visual artist and would like to develop or host a program for young talented artists at your church you can contact them on ideas to get started.

They also need creative visual artists (drawing, painting, sculpture etc) with a strong commitment to Christ to teach young people about Christ and the arts. If you have a heart for sharing Christ and art with youth, this is a good program to get involved in!
