to see this creative generation living in freedom through Jesus Christ.
“House of the Creative One”
The creative world has an ever-increasing influence on young people, and the emerging generation seems to have creativity embedded in its genes. We recognise this as a tremendous gift and that it was given to us in this time for a purpose.
Beth-Biri, meaning ‘House of the Creative One’, is a vision that the Lord gave us in 2015. It is a family and a home where young people can discover their identity through the arts. Beth-Biri is a safe place, physically and spiritually, for young people from all backgrounds to come to, to create freely and connect deeply with community, with God and with their hearts. We will be hosting creative workshops, events and lessons for improving skills, being introduced to new art forms, and to encourage others in their creative journey.
Ultimately, this will be a platform for discipleship; for all to grow in their understanding of truth and their identity as children of God. In the future, we will have a drop-in centre for assisting in meeting the practical needs of the young people we are engaging through the centre.
As we grow, we will start up new spaces and ministries around Brisbane, and in the years to come, we will take Beth-Biri to the nations. We will carry the vision and blueprint of Beth-Biri Brisbane with us, adapt it to new cultures, plant it and release it to flourish uniquely. It is our desire that our fruit would not be a list of locations and services, but many young people walking in love, freedom, boldness and assuredness in their new identity.
