-our spark & start-  

WELCOME! Let me tell you our Backstory 

Faith Arts' creator describes her spark:


As a teen, I heard the likes of Francis Schaeffer and read Narnia on Waikiki Beach and began wondering why I felt my expressive art and my creativity still felt so cut off from my Christian worldview and even from the world in general. I began dreaming of integrating my art with my life in Christ and to care for my culture - and to do so with the support of fellow artists and believers.

Lorenda Harder, BFA, BEd Honours. 

Finally, in 2018, Lorenda and a fellow artist friend co-founded and established a Niagara-based meeting place to nurture a like-minded handful of poets, painters, writers, actors, and a photographer- seeking to make connections between our faith and art.

Re-envisioning as an inter-church group and expanding in 2022, Lorenda and her vision team launched Faith Arts (FA), encouraging small local and virtual meet-ups, exhibits and performances. In 2023, a world network map was set up for small in-person groups to begin sprouting up anywhere! It is as simple and significant as meeting a fellow Christian artist for coffee.

Faith Arts is dedicated to stay FREE of membership dues or fees as a step of faith, knowing as people are impacted they will give accordingly. Therefore, we welcome cheerful heart donations  (not receipted at this time) to help cover operating costs. Subsequent network groups also agree to be fully self-supporting as well.

We are grateful for EACH visitor, member, and volunteer for sharing their time, knowledge, prayers, financial resources, participation, and encouragement - which accumulatively - is Faith Arts.
