James and Bhari Long
Known for their prophetic art across the UK and overseas, prophetic artists, James and Bhari paint live at Christian conferences and events, expressing the heart of God and the revelation of the Holy Spirit. They especially love painting during worship and times of intercession. Together they run prophetic art workshops, courses, retreats and events. They met whilst serving on Community at Lee Abbey Christian conference and retreat centre in Devon.
Their prophetic paintings, commissions, prints and cards have gone world-wide. Members of Bath City Church, Bath in England, they have been trained and equipped in prayer ministry and prophetic encouragement. Bhari served on the prophetic core team and led the prophetic encouragement team for over three years. Together they have served on the ministry team for over 10 years. James is currently serving on the operations team at Bath Abbey.
Bhari has painted throughout her life but it wasn’t until 2005 that she was able to devote more of her time to it. Bhari is an artist, author, poet, mentor and trainer. With over 20 years in sales, marketing, training, management and business development, she also has a wealth of experience to offer on their 1 to 1 development workshops.
James has been a professional artist since 1993 and initially painted wildlife and portraits before Christian art. James is also an art tutor giving both individual tuition and group demonstrations, and has over 25 years of artistic experience to offer across their range of art workshops.
James and Bhari live in Bath, UK with their daughter, Rachel Jane, who is a worship leader at Bath City Church, and a singer, songwriter and producer. Rachel Jane’s music CDs are also available here. www.racheljanemusic.com
“I get great joy when a painting ministers to people. God is pouring out His Holy Spirit on the body of Christ and releasing the prophetic across His Church, giving so many people dreams, visions and pictures and these are the pictures I want to paint for His glory.”James Long
“We delight in seeing the Lord release people, watching them experience their ‘breakthrough’ in art right before our eyes, rejoicing as they spread their wings and fly creatively with ever-increasing freedom and confidence.”Bhari Long
To see God’s people released, equipped and activated to express His heart through prophetic art, both receiving and ministering God’s love, encouragement and healing, throughout the Church and across the world.
To encourage everyone to use their God-given creative gifts and talents, especially for God’s glory.
To see the glory of God restored to the creative arts, and the creative arts restored to the Church.
