Lead Like Jesus Art Contest

God is the greatest Creator of all time. 

He created you to be a creator too. 

Your art is needed! 

Lead Like Jesus is calling artists of all types and ages from around the world to submit and donate a 6”x9” (152x229mm or 1800×2700 pixels) piece of original artwork.  Your creation should express your best artistic representation of one of the four domains of Jesus’ leadership: Heart, Head, Hands, OR Habits.

Four All-Ages Winners

One piece for each domain will be selected as the winner.  Winners will receive an honorarium of $250 and a 12 month subscription to the Lead Like Jesus Leadership Academy.  Winning pieces will be used for a Lead Like Jesus Greeting Card set sold to support the ministry.

Two Youth Winners
