“GOD, I JUST FEEL LIKE SUCH AN AMATEUR.”
“That’s exactly what you are.”
The heartbeat of amateurs is simply this: To be lovers. Let love inspire. Let love lead. Let love be the driving force of our lives. Be in love. Do from love. Act in love.
As modern day amateurs, we are following the call to return to the simple, the pure, the fun, the greatest of all; to love the Lord.
It’s not about loving music. It’s not about loving travel. It’s not about loving art or design or songwriting. It’s about loving the Lord, loving people & out of our love for Him & our neighbors we are moved to create, to write, to design, to build, to act, to serve, to obey.
Seeing Jesus rightly requires a response, & our creating is simply our response to His great love & worth. Love simply cannot stay silent. It must be expressed.
Amateurs is our love expressed.
WE ARE A LABEL, A MINISTRY, A MOVEMENT, A COLLECTIVE, A RESOURCE, AN OUTREACH…
Call us what you want, but at the end of the day we’re just a bunch of amateurs.
There was a day & time when being an amateur was not considered a weakness. It’s a word that came from the Latin word meaning, “lover of,” or “one who is motivated by love.” It was not a word that was associated with incompetence or naivety, but with love; unashamed, unconfined, all-consuming love.
These days, no one wants to be considered an amateur. It’s considered an insult. It’s seen as a negative. Instead, we want to be known as professionals, specialists & powerhouses. But we’re here to redeem the word, to restore it’s meaning.
In a world of self-proclaimed experts, we’re just a bunch of amateurs.
