One of the sessions was a speaker and artist, Jim Hicks from Grace C&MA Church in Middleburg Heights, Ohio. The portrait was done all in chalk in a matter of 20 minutes while background music was playing. Jim then tells the story of the 3 trees and then presents the portrait to whoevers birthday is closet to the current date. The message here was," Did you know visual arts, dance and music are tools for missions"? There are so many ways of presenting the Gospel of Jesus Christ across the globe.
