Project Goal
The Gideon 300
Become a Torch Bearer And Sponsor an exhibit
torch bearer
We’re so grateful for growing  number of individuals transforming the culture of the arts and visually communicating Christ through exhibits & events sponsored by MCFAF.    Torch Bearers are those who commit to give $25 or more each time we launch an exhibit into a new city, two  or three times a year.  Like Gideon with a small band of God-directed individuals who held their torches high, they accomplished their God-given mission together.  Gideon couldn’t do it alone and neither can we.  If you’d like to become a torch bearer and help to sponsor our next exhibit

Masterpiece dinner club logo

Join or start a Dinner Club and help to share Christ visually through the arts internationally.   Clubs meeting now in Canada, Versailles, France and here in the U.S.

          Great food, great friends and a great cause….a combination that everyone enjoys! Thus the Masterpiece Dinner Clubs were born out of a creative solution for funding the projects of the foundation while doing something everyone enjoys.

           Dinner clubs meet in private homes or creative locations with the participation of volunteer hosts and hostesses (or co-hostesses), who invite a group of six to eight people to enjoy fine dining, great fellowship and discussions, and exposure to great Biblical art, both historic and present day, and a brief update on the current projects of the foundation.

       We  welcome new Versailles club hosts Daniele and Maria Christina Gonano and their many guests.  To them we say, “Mille mercis!”

Volunteer coordinator Julie Ballon can help hosts or hostesses, if desired, to plan the event with suggested menus, the “content” of the evening (the featured work of art, a Bible verse or prayer, suggested music, etc.) and follow up on financial details, making each dinner a very easy format to follow.For information about either hosting a dinner club or being a participant in a club in your area call 541-601-7496 or email: [email protected]. or
