Andy Gray is creating ...helping people tell the story of their faith
10

patrons


Hi my name is Andy Gray,   Onegraydot,
I am an illustrator, I tell people about Jesus, and I work (from end of September 2018) as a faith sharing enabler for the church of England for part of the week.
THE HEART IS STILL THE SAME. ITS TO SUPPORT MISSION. IN REAL TERMS, AND THEN SHARE WHAT I HAVE DISCOVERED WITH OTHERS THROUGH YOUR SUPPORT
As a faith sharing enabler I help people to look at their own life story with Jesus and be able to tell that story to help inspire faith in others. That story can be their big story of how they came to know Jesus, but what happened these last few weeks is just as, if not more, important. Every day testimony shows the reality of who Jesus is. How he is faithful to us each and every day.
As such I live by faith too, with the support of others.  And I see God deliver time after time because he is awesome.
By living by faith this sometimes means paid employment, and sometimes to support me and my family, as an illustrator, DJ, magician...tent making, as St Paul calls it.
I have been a paid artist and illustrator since I was 14 years old when a girl gave me £10 to draw a picture for her, which was a good deal in 1984. I’ve illustrated and cartooned my way through industry to book publishing, the internet to art galleries...even a certain museum in Paris a couple of years back. 

Alongside the pens, ink, paints and pencils I use medium to high-end technology, cheap iPad apps to industrial strength programs just to get the best results. These pictures are now being animated and together with story telling and Christian witness to help people tell their reason for hope. Patreon will help fund me to do that so that we can together help you and those who don't even know us to tell their testimony. All the videos can be uploaded to social media or youtube channels!

Rewards for your pledge

You get updates as to how the ministry and art side of life are going. But as i work in my new Job i am also going to be updating you with my discoveries of what people find hard in telling their faith story and ways of helping...so I will write some resources, and connect other resources. Hopefully this will provide a growing reource you can share.

What is Patreon?

You may have heard of Kickstarter crowd funding or in the UK  Just Giving, a way of raising funds for one-off projects. This is a mixture of both of those but picking up the old idea of having a patron. You support by funding regularly rather than just a one-off but for a lower amount, which makes living as an artist anmd creator  far more realistic. As my patron, you will be someone who believes in what I am trying to achieve and would like to support me to pursue my art and vision to help others tell their story.  Just click the level of support you would like to become my patron at for the price of a coffee or a pizza once a month and choose a payment method. 
Make sure you check out my funding 'goals' too...it'll give you a flavour of the vision I have for the future.

OK, I'm in! How do I become your Patron?

  1. Click the level of support you want - its like taking me out for a coffee (or a pizza) once a month
  2. Click the PayPal button!  That’s it.*  And thank you!
I will get your support through the Patreon system and tax is all sorted out for me before I receive it making life easier for me. Talking of tax, in the UK you will also need to pay an extra 20%...all taken care of on the next page. So yeah, at the $1 level it’s $1.20 and so on. 


*oh, you don’t have Paypal? No worries...just click the big orange confirm and pledge button on the next page after selecting your support amount and you enter your card number instead.


FAQ


Q: How often will I hear from you?
A:  I may post up other work in progress posts along the way as public stuff. Some time between the 10th and 20th of the month is normal.
Q: When do I pay my pledge?
It's all automatic once you have pledged, and processing payments begins on the 1st of the month for pledges made at any point, or continuing on, from the previous month. It can take up to 72 hours for the the process to complete.  After that you will get an email to say your rewards are available, and I will try to make sure that they are available within the week after the process date.  If you get a problem, contact me via the Patreon page.
Q: How do I get in touch with you?
A: Once you are a patron, you can message me through the Patreon system
or just email [email protected] .
Q: I've got a question about...
A: Here's a page that Patreon answers all those questions on, and more


1 Thessalonians chapter 2, verse 8-12 and you’ll get the idea. Hey, you might want to choose to support me even though you aren’t interested in the creative side of things. That’s cool too! Just choose your level, and let me know who you are and why you are supporting me. That's why I have added the crazy $200 funding amount, because you might just want to do that. Like I said, check out the goals I have to see what my vision is to help me give back to the community. And if the thought of supporting a minister turns you off then no worries.  You’re awesome anyway! Let’s stay friends - find me on social media.
At first my aim was to have supporters pay me to create images which I thought they would like so that I could complement other income through the book illustrations that I was hoping to do. Well the illustration business has grown, but I don't want to give up on ministry. 
My new role of faith sharing enabler for bath and wells diocese means that i am paid for 24 hours a week. But the art enabled me to apply for and accept that ministry.
