Purpose

PURPOSE events were created to inspire Christians to do something they love and glorify God instead of themselves. They introduce unique works by established and up-and- coming Christian artists to tell the story of living in God’s grace and mercy, and encourage Christians to combine their individual passions with their desire to serve God and do his work.

These events aspire to break stereotypes and show that being a Christian is about more than conforming to a certain set of rules. They show that worship and praise are important elements of expressing faith, and that Christians should feel free to do this through any medium; from song to dance to fashion. Christians are given a platform to show their creativity ‘Live Outside the Box’ – because being a Christian may now mean so much more than ever before.
