Bartimaeus, a blind man, said to Jesus, “My teacher, let me see again.” Jesus said to him, “Go, your faith has made you well.” Immediately he gained his sight and followed him on the way. -Mark 10:51b-52

The Bartimaeus Project seeks to nurture faith in God through the visual arts in the worship area and the adjacent spaces. It also seeks to encourage and celebrate creativity in individuals as well as in the larger faith community.

Call of the Ministry Team: God calls members to the Baritmaeus Project who are interested in the visual arts and how it relates to faith: artists of all levels and disciplines, art appreciators, and anyone who says, “I don’t have any talent but I love art.”
