ABOUT HO HODOS WORSHIP ARTS
Ho Hodos is a way for individuals, families or groups to discover and grow in their God-given gifts, through creative art. In the process, we learn to yield to the Holy Spirit, allowing Him to sculpt our lives. Who we are begins to take form, and our purpose and function in the kingdom of God is revealed!
In the beginning, each person creates simple, pre-planned projects in all seven categories of Ho Hodos Worship Arts. As you spend time exploring these categories, you have opportunity to identify the areas of art you like most, which highlights your gifts. This in turn can lead to a discovery of your calling--your purpose--in life.
Kids are naturally drawn to the supernatural. If they are allowed, and encouraged, to explore this way, they may discover their gifts and call, even an occupation, at a young age! Providing an opportunity to get a head start on developing skill and gaining an education in their gifted area.
Yet, Ho Hodos is for adults too, we are never too old to discover, or grow in, our purpose for living!
Bible study, meditation on the Word, and some practical healthy living instruction is also included. Christian parents, teachers or small group leaders who are looking for a way to bring both worship, fellowship, and discovery to their group may want to consider Ho Hodos. By purchasing the optional meeds packet, there are opportunities to plan events together and work as a team to make plans become a reality.

GroupIndividualKids & AdultsGroup Practice Worship art groups are simply a group of people who meet together for Ho Hodos sessions and events. They may be people of all ages and art preferences who come together to grow, worship and develop relationships in Christ. These groups may be based in various places including homes, neighborhoods or churches. Individual Practice The individual practice is for those who want to work on their own and not in a group. This means you are not meeting with others for sessions or events.Children & Adults The Ho Hodos practice is designed for children and adults. There is both a child and adult workbook for each level which are coordinated so you can work together. The children's practice, in most cases, works best with ages 7-15. A child requires a mentor, a parent or group leader, to guide him or her through the sessions and provide art materials.
Lessons, Meeds, Events
LessonsOptional MeedsCore MeedsWritten Lessons At the Follower and Disciple levels, written lessons are either biblical or practical living type lessons. Scripture meditation is a precursor to the art projects. The Bible study beads replace written lessons at the Servant level.These optional beads are purchased separately as a packet at any level. They are for activities done outside of your session times. They are optional, however, one set of these beads is required for the Servant Knight designation. Bible Study A Bible study lesson is included in the workbooks for Follower and Disciple for you to complete if you have purchased the optional bead packet. As a Servant, you may also earn Bible Study beads. Events There are three different types of events you may earn as an optional bead. Outside Events are outreaches to your community. They may be private, more subtle events (like prayer walks) or public. The Yearly Feast is an event held in the fall and a fun time of celebrating God's goodness and provision. It may be as simple or elaborate as you wish. The Yearly Fast in the spring is a time to reign in the appetites, pray, seek the Lord and maybe even detox. Personal BreakthroughThere are two different personal breakthrough beads. One is for being at a healthy weight, the other is a financial bead. Only one of these is required for the Servant Knight designation. Meeds & Beads At each level, you earn meeds--mostly beads--for the various tasks you complete. The beads are worn on wrist or neck bands depending on which level you are in. All of the material for the bands are included with your workbook so you may assemble your bands yourself, with whatever beads you earn at that level. The core beads are the beads you earn to complete each level. By earning them, you will stay on track for the Servant Knight designation at the Servant level. There is also an optional bead packet you may choose to earn at any level, which are for activities held outside of sessions.
