• How to pray for your full time workers

    This post is from Debbie Przybylski at Intercessors Arise International.

    “The supreme question of foreign [workers] is how to multiply the number of Christians who will individually and collectively exert this force of intercession for the conversion and transformation of men.

  • Artists' Gallery an inspiring place of restoration and hope

     "Wow!" exclaimed Fetiha, as she stepped into the door with two other North African friends. She walked around, a hot glass of mint tea in her hand, and took in the transformation of the warehouse-turned-art-studio.  Artwork from a mixture of local artists and immigrants graced the walls of the lively-colored space. Some sat on modern couches and talked about the work while others milled about and chatted with artists. Several children, paint brushes in hand, added their personal touches to

  • Connecting to a community through art, one life at a time

    An OM Arts International team touched people's hearts with their art forms this past summer on a short-term missions trip to Belgium. On one particular day, the team used various art forms to reach people in a park with the Gospel. A homeless man listened to the worship music and heard some of God's word.

    We are currently experiencing God's blessing in a wonderful way here at Incarnate.  Here's what happened this past week:

    A woman in North Africa has been praying for us on a regular basis.  Last Monday, she got a "download" from God to intercede for us around the concept of God as "Father". She sent us an email, part of which is copied below:

    "A sense of many students needing to dig deep into the Father himself - not to focus on their skills

  • Living For God's Glory

    If I thought of 'glory' I'd think first of kings or mountains; splendid things, things which are edged in gold, and distant and massive and ancient. 

    And if I was thinking of God's glory I could very well stare at mountains- they're His after all- their beauty suggests His and their majesty suggests His. I can look at mountains and remember that God's glory is a powerful thing (so powerful, that when

    When I was a little kid, God spoke to my mom’s friend He told her that I am a ‘dance warrior.’ I didn’t know what that meant, and to be quite honest I thought it was strange. I hadn’t even started dancing yet. During the first week of Incarnate, OM Arts Director Bill Drake told me I am a ‘dance
