Visiting nursing homes, volunteering at shelters, and working on community service projects are all common ministries for church youth groups. However, at one Cullman County church, the students have found a unique way to spread the word. They call it Paint 4 Jesus.
The youth minister at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Vinemont says they got the idea after seeing Mike Lewis, also known as "The Jesus Painter," perform during a Christian conference in Pigeon Forge. Lewis uses his skills as a visual artist to inspire others.
That's exactly what happened in the case of the Ebenezer Baptist group. Taylor Quick says, "It's not necessarily that we're just awesome artists. It's just that we are willing to try things to spread the word and just do the best we can."
