Reclaiming God’s voice in art

to transform and renew minds, Romans 12:2

by cultivating God given gifts

and sharing them with the world

as faithful stewards of God’s Grace. 1 Peter 4:10-11

Who we are:

Christos Collective is a group of artists of Christian faith offering their talents to the public in exhibition, educational panel discussions, and community outreach projects as a means to share their faith.

Mission:

Christos Collective believes that a supportive and active body of artists of Christian faith can be an influential, educational, and charitable resource serving the public well-being through a Christian worldview.

Goal: 

Providing resources and education for the Christian artist and the community at large.

Objective: 

Cultivating and harvesting Christian faith through the arts with educational programs, outreach, exhibition and community engagement.

Our Story:

Christos Collective is a nonprofit organization that supports artists of Christian faith to use their artistic gifts for God’s Glory. The development and growth of the collective is an answer to a call to reclaim God’s voice in the arts. Artist members of Christos Collective are empowered to reach excellence in their art, and to share a Christian worldview in their process and content. This can take many forms in the contemporary world of art.

To assist this development, the collective offers programming to churches and universities that include exhibition of art, artist talks and panels, and a community outreach component. It is our intention to develop patronage and donors from this home base. Christos Collective believes that this way of connecting provides the artists with opportunities to share their gifts in a safe environment as they grow towards independence in presenting their gifts to the world at large, to include galleries and other venues.

Our vision is to eventually own realestate, establishing a cornerstone in the art community, which would allow us to offer exhibitions, studio work space, workshops, lectures, and community events that share God’s love through the arts. 

Faith Statement:

We believe that God created the world and sent His one and only son, Jesus Christ to earth, to die on a cross for our sins, so we may live in eternity with Him.
