The Engage Art Contest Carolinas KICKOFF Event will feature a performing arts stage with top notch talent in a broad range of styles from around the Carolinas!

The event will take place Saturday, July 14th from 1-5PM at Spirit Square Plaza (345 N College St, Charlotte, NC 28202  |  Parking Help). It’s free and family friendly, featuring top 10 Charlotte food truck Roaming Fork and Rita’s Italian Ice.

Our free workshops will cover improv, songwriting, storytelling, the Spiritual Battle between good and evil, music production and more.

Come celebrate, learn and prepare to enter the Engage Art Contest!

The Engage Art Contest asks musicians, visual artists and videographers to create original work inspired by Ephesians 6:10-20. This is often called the “Spiritual Battle” passage. When taken together, these passages discuss the broad and evergreen theme of good vs. evil. When you read the verses more closely, you’ll notice that it includes details as diverse as standing your ground, the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and the shoes of peace. Artwork for the contest can be inspired by any part of these verses, and entrants will explain that inspiration or how their artwork reflects the verses in their submission.

Charlotte Revealed: An Inside Look at Scripture Engagement Trends

Hello Charlotte Leaders!

I hope that you are doing well and preparing for a wonderful New Year!

I am personally inviting you to attend a special gathering that can position us to further transform our city.  You are someone who is invested in the welfare of our city and has an interest in data that can take us there.  

American Bible Society has partnered with the Center for Bible Engagement, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a generous donor to research scripture engagement trends in the Queen City. 

On Thursday, January 18th from 8:30am to noon, we will gather to reveal highlights of this data and discuss ways to maximize the information for God’s glory and our good.
