Mary Stewart is a delight to anyone she comes in contact with. She has a heart attitude that has allowed her to create a tremendous amount of contagious joy in the arts. She has been a loyal participant in the Ben Lippen Fine Arts program these past few years and has demonstrated an exciting amount of growth in her walk with the Lord and the arts. She played an important role in The Importance of Being Earnest and plans to participate in future theatre productions. Mary Stewart has also dedicated much of her time and energy to leading others in worship. As a result of taking the Worship Arts class this year, she is now involved in her worship team at Shandon Baptist Church. Mary Stewart is always willing to learn and demonstrates exciting potential in Kingdom-advancing arts!

Tori has spent much of her life pursuing the art of Dance. Her desire to pursue excellence and steward her gifts is an example of her dedication to the arts. For Tori though, it doesn’t stop here. It is evident that through her gifting, she has continually sought out ways to use her gifts for the Kingdom. In addition to her hours dedicated to dance at the Christian Dance Studio, she also finds ways to be a leader amongst her peers at school and church. She interns at the World Mission Center and last summer traveled to Bulgaria to minister to others on how to worship God through dance. She will be traveling this summer to do the same in South Africa and Mozambique.

Congratulations Tori and Mary Stewart! We are so proud of the example that you have set, and we pray that you continue to grow in advancing the arts for His glory!
