-our spark & start-  

Backstory: As a teen, Lorenda Harder heard the likes of Francis Schaeffer and read Narnia on Waikiki Beach:


...But I often wondered why I felt my expressive art and creativity still felt so cut off from my more conservative Christian worldview. I began dreaming of integrating my art with my life in Christ and to care for my culture with the support of fellow artists and believers.

Finally, in 2018, Lorenda and fellow artist, Josh Tiessen, co-founded and established inTACT (in the Arts & Christian Thought): a growing, like-minded handful of poets, painters, writers, actors, and a photographer began meeting up in Niagara, Canada.

Rebranding and expanding in 2022, Lorenda and her vision team launched Faith Arts to encourage both local and virtual meet-ups, exhibits and performances anywhere.  


“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” 

Pablo Picasso
