Kingdom Class Artists Retreat

For those who have ever wondered if God could use their trials and talents for His glory,  I will be leading an artists’ retreat at the Neues Leben Zentrum in Woelmersen, Germany from Nov. 2-9, 2025.  Over the week, we will discuss what it means to be an evangelistic artist, how our life experiences are exactly what qualifies us to be our Lord’s ambassadors of His grace, power, light and hope to a world aching to be seen, to be known, to be accepted and encouraged to be all their loving Father created them to be.

Using music, dance, painting, poetry, acting – indeed all art forms – we can present the beauty of Jesus and what He can do, through our testimonies.  There will be an opportunity to participate in a testimony concert before your classmates or in a local church for those who wish to participate in such an event.

This international retreat will be conducted in English.  Practice rooms will be available for artists.  In preparation for our week together, we will have regular Zoom meetings to get to know each other, learn about evangelism and to pray.  Rooms before or after the retreat will be available on a first come, first serve basis for those wanting to extend their stay at additional cost.

If you wish to be considered as a short term missionary, Kontakt Canada Missionary Association, Kontakt Mission USA, Kontakt International and Neues Leben may be able to help by issuing tax receipts to those wanting to support you on this retreat.

Please contact me if you are interested or would like further details:

I am praying for your decision to join us for what will surely be a blessed event for all.  Hope to see you in 2025!!

Together in Christ,
