Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to be an authentic community of artists and musicians who create out of wholeness and inspire the world into connection with God.

Who We Are

We are a collective of songwriters, visual artists, craftsmen, musicians and passionate lovers of Jesus. We are close friends who live and work in community in Sophia, NC.  Our entire team hosts our 6 month school for the heart called, The 18 Inch Journey. There we impart the power of living a whole-hearted life, rooted in Jesus Christ with a strong emphasis on creativity.

Our Story

In 2010, we established our artist collective called Cageless Birds to create a space for our staff to use their giftings and talents year-round to generate income for our ministry, A Place for the Heart and school, The 18 Inch Journey.
