Prophetic Creativity Retreat


Come join us for an intimate weekend retreat with Ray Hughes, Matt Tommey, Brian and Ramey Whalen and Pattie Ann Hale which will include sharing meals together, informal worship with interactive discussion and personal ministry.  During the weekend, our goal is to really get to know you, understand your creative passion and help you find ways to express your authentic prophetic voice. In order to do that, we are limiting the weekend to only 33 participants - 12 painters and 21 musicians.

This retreat for painters and musicians is designed to help you:
  • Connect creatively with the heart of the Father
  • Hear and see in the Heavenly Realm
  • Walk in your unique creative authority
  • Release God-breathed expression
  • Shift the spiritual atmosphere
Ray Hughes will be our featured speaker during each evening session.  Participants are encouraged to bring their own instruments and creative tools, canvases, etc. to worship with during the weekend.  On Saturday, Matt Tommey will facilitate a creative collaboration session with all participants where we will play paintings, paint music and creatively interpret poetry and new songs.  The weekend will end with a Saturday evening “show and tell” time and special individual impartation and blessing for each participant.

 

Prophetic artist, Linnette Penney-Gainham from Scotland will be our guest artist during the retreat. She will join our team for prophetic painting and worship throughout the weekend.

Workshops for Musicians

Tabernacle of David
Brian and Ramey Whalen, Ray Hughes

Many biblical expressions of the Tabernacle of David are being overlooked in the church today.  This workshop will deal with numerous examples of creative avenues for biblical worship, including the selah ministry and the 7 Hebrew words for praise, one of which is the practical activation of spontaneous prophetic singing. We will explore many examples of Tabernacle of David worship and its impact in the church and in secular society.                                       

Creativity and the Creative Anointing
Brian and Ramey Whalen

Receive biblical and kingdom principles that will release you into greater realms of Holy Spirit creativity and innovation in your own personal calling and sphere of influence. We’ll be discussing why manifesting high-level creativity is vitally important to the heart of God for all believers and not just for the artistically inclined.

Songwriting
Brian and Ramey Whalen

Learn why it’s important to find your own voice, how to find your voice and to express worship through your own original songs. We will discuss how to develop some beginner and advanced songwriting skills.

Releasing Heaven through Expression
Pattie Ann Hale with Ray Hughes

This workshop will be a continuation of the journey. As creative portals are made clear, the connection with and response to Holy Spirit is a place of free expression. In this workshop, we will focus on Godʼs gift of creativity and how He longs to release visual messages to His artists. Ray Hughes will give a brief lecture about the visual connection between heaven and earth and how heavenly imagery is released in the earth through art. There will be a time of question and answer and impartation with Ray during the workshop. Pattie will lead you in experiential exercises which will help you find and release your unique prophetic expression. You will learn through specific painting and prophetic processing methods, how to release heaven through visual art. Your canvas will be an explosion of expression.

• Mapping – Finding spaces with God
• Exploring spaces, textures, and atmospheres in the Spirit
• Expressing Heavenly expression through color, form, line, composition, and mood.

The Story of Jesus
Pattie Ann Hale with Matt Tommey

The nature of the prophetic is to testify of Jesus. In this workshop, we will explore how the nature of Jesus comes through our prophetic art. You will learn the nuances of prophetic art – how sometimes it is intercessory or worship or devotional. We will look at a number of artists and their work and discuss the power of prophetic art in itʼs variety. Matt Tommey will join us for a discussion about the prophetic nature of his basketry. We will specifically work on developing and finishing our art pieces by focusing on the unique story that is forming on the canvas.
