The Discombobulated Church

A Humorous and Challenging Art Exhibit on the Contemporary Church

This insightful art exhibit consists of 14 pen and ink images by Trey Everett of what the Church is and can be. The exhibit is designed to be thoughtful, introspective, and motivating to parishioners and the church body as a whole. Displayed next to each image is a short commentary with questions to ponder and discuss. The hope is that this unique exhibit will be a spring board for your church to contemplate, discuss, and make choices that reflect what a healthy spiritual community truly is.

What People Are Saying:

“This art exhibit is great! For us, it was wonderful to have our sanctuary space serve also as an art gallery. Lots of church folks viewed the art before and after worship and during the week. People are hungry not just for good words, but also good images, so this struck a chord. As a preacher, I benefited, as I used some images and ideas from the art for my Christmas Eve sermon, and the message got people thinking.”

“Great talking points. Creative. Missional in nature. Invites faith communities to rediscover who God has called them to be.”

“Trey is a real theologian.”

“Fabulous creative way to look at and to love the church.”

“It’s really changed us as a church to focus on what we do and how we can re-energize.”

“Our congregation and visitors enjoyed and found Trey’s work inspiring and encouraging to our current society around us.”
