While participating in my last Bethel D.Min. course (now just proposals, projects, and dissertation to be completed), we have had the opportunity to meet up with some fascinating and innovative people.
Dean Sharp operates Vox Studios and The Underground in Thousand Oaks, CA. This community seeks to do as much good for the planet as possible. They develop relationships through events which promote local artists and local business in the context of raising awareness and funds for social causes.
Heath Dalrymple from Vox Sacramento shared about their efforts in serving their city, developing relationships, and starting a community of Christ-followers.
Octavio Martinez and his team created a Culture Pub at the Blue Bird Art House in Whittier, CA on Friday night, July 6th.
I am enjoying hearing about the experimental efforts of others with a heart for the disconnected and overlooked.
