We work with Leaders, Communities, Schools, Businesses, Agencies, Churches, Artists, and Philanthropists to Increase the potential of Individuals & Families. We take the Lead in bringing practical, life altering education, information, support, and change to communities (both live, and via social media), with the goal of impacting the lives of thousands. We Connect closely with other Soul Winners from various Christ Centered Denominations and Non-Denominations, and we do so intentionally in these final hours, to deliver creative, evangelistic events, and experiences.
"He that winneth souls is wise." (Proverbs 11:30b)
We increase the capacity of Individuals, Employees, Leaders and Students through value added education well suited for the workplace, churches, schools, and communities.
Arts Development & Ministry
We offer opportunities for artists development, collaborative ministry, arts missions, outreaches and more through META, AMERICA PROCLAIMS, and Seasons Change International.
Through CITIZEN 2CITIZEN, The Coalition To Impact Communities, Jasper Ladies International, AMERICA PROCLAIMS and other of our ministries we bring the Body of Christ together beyond our Christ Centered Denominations (and Non-Denominations), well below the surface, to work together as One. We take John Chapter 17 quite seriously and run with diligence to love & embrace Brothers and Sisters in Christ from all Cultures, Colors and Ethnic Backgrounds in our intentional work to win the lost and to make disciples of all mankind.
Started in 2017, Arts & Culture Connect has become the ministry bowl from which more than 35 years of ministry is now served. Selia Darlene Bervine has given birth to many educational, ministry, arts components and outreaches to minister to people on a national and international level.
Each ministry or educational program that Selia, (or "Rev. Selia" as she is often called,) creates, always gives way for the Arts to be part of its expression in an effort to deliver truth, comfort, support or education to people of all ages.
The creation of Arts & Culture Connect seemed inevitable when as you know, artistic expressions, education, and media took a more visible and heightened lead in establishing value systems and standards for living, for all of society - including our families - to follow.
Our prayer is that you will find in Arts & Culture Connect - some ministry, tools, outreach, arts missions opportunity or training that you would want to be a part of. We are Intentional in our approach to seek Christ Centered collaborations with those of like mind and heart. We hope that you are one of them. We look forward to worshipping God, serving Others and Fellowshipping with You...soon.
What We Believe
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of the living God; that it is the final authority on all matters, and is relevant to all matters of life and life principles and practices.
We believe there to be no higher written authority given to man but the Bible to instruct in love, eternal life, compassion, trust, work, equity, unity of the Body of Christ, relationships, worship, and lifestyle; thus, we commit to living out the principles of the Bible in liberty and in truth.
We believe that there is only one God, that he exists in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His miracles, His sinless blood, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His physical resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God - the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that salvation is an act of God’s saving grace initiated by the Holy Spirit who regenerates and converts the hearts of people of all ages by His free gift of saving faith.
We believe that Jesus Christ himself will return, that there will be everlasting life with God for the righteous, and that there is an eternal damnation in hell for the wicked.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the sole head of the Church, that the Church - the Body of Christ and its institutions - have the responsibility to maintain His lordship over their activities; that right is not to be given to any individual; We respect and honor godly laws created by governmental authority, and we offer prayers for direction, peace and safety for those in governmental office, and seek authentic community relationships with them for the rebuilding of cities, states and regions.
We believe that we are to follow the example of Jesus Christ in lifestyle, that we are to be true worshippers of God, that we are to love life and occupy until He returns for us.
We believe that all the people of the earth were given by God a measure of faith, that this faith works by love, that this faith can be developed and increased by salvation, the continuous hearing of the Bible and its principles, and that this faith can change and heal lives.
