Refresh Outreach Proxe (in-person) 

This art display outreach (proxe) features a Native-influenced gospel allegory which engages both Christians and non-Christians with the brokenness of our world and Creator's restorative beauty. Students have been stunned to see Creator Sets Free (Jesus), who meets them in life's deserts and offers to transform all things.

What is a proxe? 

A proxe is a set of large, interactive visual displays meant to start spiritual conversations on campus (with passers-by, both strangers and friends). The term proxe is a made-up word that we use for interactive art displays that lead to the Gospel. Learn more about running a proxe station. 

How do I print a proxe? 

Download the Proxe PDF and save to a flash drive. Take to your favorite print shop and ask them to print a “lightweight banner 30x48.” Do not use online ordering; the uploading process downgrades the image quality.

When do you use a “pocket proxe”? 

There are two main ways: 

  1. In partnership with the large proxe. You send out a team of students to engage with people who are at a distance from the physical proxe. You use the pocket proxe to pique their interest and move these people toward the main proxe. 
  2. You can use the pocket proxe all by itself. This mobile version allows you to have spiritual conversations anywhere: cafe, after class, in the dorm, at work, your small group, you name it.
