About the presenter

Matthew Moore is an educator and artist, having taught Speech and Theater for 23 years at Cedarville University and Moody Bible Institute. He is also the founder of Lamp and Light Productions <>. He is beyond excited to serve SEA part-time as the Relationships Manager. May God bless His Word and the compelling art that helps illuminate it!


The Spark + Echo Mission and Opportunity


          Because the Bible is relevant to all people in all places...
          Because all artists in all places are image bearers of God...
          Because artists have a pervasive impact in forming culture...

Spark+Echo Arts forms communities of artists who engage with, and create in response to, the Bible.

If we are successful...

          Artists are affirmed in their calling.
          Artists connect deeply to God and one another.
          Artists from diverse spiritual and cultural backgrounds work with each other.
          The Bible is recovered as a common subject of artistic conversation and creation.
          Artists provide the curious with new forms of engagement with Scripture.

Every verse of the Bible will be illuminated with art, music, theatre, poetry, dance, or film by Christian and non-Christian artists from every nation across the world.

View here what has been accomplished so far.

Visitors, please do check in to look at the S+E website. Not only are the artworks fantastic (plan to spend a while there), but the web design to display them is an artwork in itself.
