On Friday night, we released Molly Kate Skaggs’ debut album, Overtaken, and celebrated the release of Jonathan and Melissa Helser’s album, Beautiful Surrender.  We were joined by 1,200 people from all over the country at the Carolina Theatre in downtown Greensboro, NC to worship the Father and celebrate these albums.  As a community, our heart was to bless the city of Greensboro and to partner with the Father to see His dream become a reality.  It was an incredible evening and we are so grateful to have been a part of it!  

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to worship with us! Check out the video for a recap of the evening with Allie Sampson of the Cageless Birds.

The 2016 18 Inch Journey has come to a close.  The last week of the school was filled with celebration, testimony and family.  We were blown away as the students shared their stories of how the Journey changed their lives and what it has meant to them.  We are so proud of the 32 hearts that chose to let themselves be impacted by Jesus over these 60 days.  Yet again, we are moved by how much the Father can do in such a short window of time.  

As we close our discipleship season we find our hearts filled with wonder and gratitude.  We look forward to updating you on what the Father is doing here in the months ahead. Thank you for your support and for following the 2016 18 Inch Journey.  It has been a joy to share what the Father is doing on this land with you! 

 

Collective Presentations

Our community loves celebrating creativity.  We believe that opening ourselves up to be seen, especially in our craft, is essential to inspiration and growth.  There is something powerful in valuing your work, taking ownership over what you’ve produced and boldly declaring, “I am worth being seen.”  We have found that letting ourselves be celebrated makes space in our hearts to celebrate others and cancels the need for competition or comparison.

During the 18 Inch Journey, our students have several opportunities to be seen and heard, but one of the most anticipated evenings of celebration is our Final Collective Presentations.  Collectives are the creative class that students choose to participate in before coming to the school.  Over the sixty days, the collectives are taught by our Cageless Birds staff who have cultivated the specific craft the students are studying.  Under teaching from our staff, students are taught new techniques and given specific prompts and assignments to help them grow in their understanding and inspiration.  During the last week of the school, each collective presents their final presentations to the entire school and showcases what they have been cultivating over the sixty days.  Collective Presentations are different from an Open Mic Night in that students get to share a larger body of work and expound on what they have experienced and learned through their collective.  These presentations are more of an art gallery style celebration and the students get to experience what it is like to be seen and celebrated in their work from beginning to end.
