Art Story Mission is a new podcast from Ecclesia Clear Lake, hosted by John Hatfield and featuring various voices from the ECL community. This podcast is an ongoing conversation about the journey of following Jesus as we explore themes of beauty, mission, and the stories that are unfolding in and around our faith community. We hope this show encourages you to dive deeper into the life that God offers in Jesus Christ.

Like many of the things we do at Ecclesia Clear Lake, Art Story Mission follows the church calendar as a backdrop for our conversations. Each new season on the church calendar will bring fresh voices, new stories, and evolving discussions on art, beauty, and the mission of the Church.
