About Elizabeth

Elizabeth became obsessed with mosaic art during a trip to Europe in her early twenties. Her Grandmother had taught me how to cut glass at a young age, and she loved making stained glass pieces with her. When she inherited her stained glass collection and equipment, she started using the glass to create mosaic art. She now shares her passion with others by conducting workshops to teach others this art at Crazy Horse Art Studio ~ Mosaics & More, located in Grapevine, Texas.

Rev. Aimee Copley Mulder

Church of the Nazarene

Muskegon, MI

"Imago Dei: Preaching a Dynamic Picture of God"

About the Workshop: We have a tremendous opportunity when we preach to paint a picture of God and proclaim who God is. In this current day when daughters prophesy, we need to know what image of God informs our faith and the proclaimed Word. Who we think God is effects how we walk in faith and who we become in Christ. This workshop will ask preachers to examine the language they use for God and the dangers of having a static picture of God. We will also delve into different preaching forms and how those structures effect the preached imago Dei.

About Rev. Mulder

Aimee Copley Mulder is a passionate Christian who is in the middle of her 18th year of co-pastoring a local church. Devin and Aimee have pastored two churches that were each more than 100 years old and long to be incarnational in their community. Aimee is pursuing her Doctorate of Ministry in Spiritual Formation from Nazarene Theological Seminary to graduate in May of 2024. Her dissertation is tentatively entitled: Imago Dei: Examining the Image of God Preachers Proclaim.

Ford (16), Cooper (14), and Tucker (12) are the joys of Aimee’s life and she can be seen on the sidelines of the football and soccer fields losing her preaching voice. The churches Aimee pastors have sometimes had to decide which bill they can pay and she has always had to double as a church janitor. Aimee is fueled by her daily 4 shots of espresso and the Holy Spirit.
