What’s a Bible Cluster? A Bible Cluster is simple: we gather together (virtually in this case!) to read Scripture, discuss Scripture, and pray together with artists and art appreciators around the world.Here at Engage Art we are passionate about Engaging Scripture. A Bible Cluster is a way to deepen Scripture engagement in a small group of peers.
Read. Talk. Pray. That’s all there is to it. Here at Engage Art we are passionate about Engaging Scripture. A Bible Cluster is a way to deepen Scripture engagement in a small group of peers.
A Bible Cluster follows a simple flow: read ~ talk ~ pray.
A Bible Cluster is not:
Yes! Engage Art hosts an open Bible Cluster the last Tuesday of every month at 9pm ET in our EAC Artist Community facebook group HERE. Every month, in addition to a respectful, uplifting conversation about Scripture, we also feature original artwork inspired by the passage that we will be discussing. This artwork might be visual art, a live performance, or in video form. The artists join the call and present their work to everyone who has gathered. We would love for you to join in!
Yes! We have found Bible Clusters to be very powerful, and we want to equip you to start your own Bible Cluster right in your community. Anyone can start a Bible Cluster. All it takes is a facilitator and a few friends who want to gather together to read Scripture, talk about it, and pray. See below for how to do it!
We highly recommend that you watch the simple step-by-step videos about how to start your own Bible Cluster here. These videos were produced by Pastor David Ingrassia (the creator of Bible Clusters) and his team at Charlotte Awake.
Depending on where you live, how dispersed your group is, or how comfortable you feel with technology, having a virtual Bible Cluster may be a more practical option for your group. If so, there are many video web conferencing platforms available so your group can see each other face-to-face.
Do you want to start your own Bible Cluster? Have you already started? Do you need help starting your own Bible Cluster? We’d love to hear from you! Email our Engagement Manager, Ranika Chaney at firstname.lastname@example.org with your Bible Cluster information or questions.
