Sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to the millennial generation through creativity and social media.
In an episode of A Life You Love with host Renee Evans, Jenessa Wait shares how God called her to do missions through social media and her gift of creativity. Jenessa began her hand-lettering journey in 2015 when she heard the voice of the Lord whispering to her to try that form of art. What started as a hobby quickly became a successful online business and a platform for missions.
With the success of her art business, the young pastor in Austin, Texas, also began to use her art to share hope and the Gospel to this generation.
“I know my generation, the millennial generation, is so hungry for truth and for people to share the good news of Jesus. And they’re just hungry for identity,” Jenessa said. “So being able to use that platform [Social Media] to really speak into that and through creativity, which I love so much, has been such a fun process for me.”
Creativity & Social Media
The young mom also encouraged other artists to keep on creating art out of who they are in Christ. A lot of artists struggled to create arts according to the liking of the people, however, God doesn’t want you to create art for people. God wants you to create art for His glory.
“I never ask you to create for people, for the purpose of filling their need. I’ve asked you to create out of the overflow of who you are. Just like the boy who gave the fish and the loaves and Jesus took that and He multiplied it and He said, ‘Just give me what you have, just give what you have and I will multiply it and I will take it further than you could ever have thought possible.”
