Photographs, Clip Art, and other mission-oriented graphics sources

We've run this around the misionmobilizers conference and the Brigada Today conference last year and came up with next to nothing. Kingdom Graphics has some clipart, but I didn't find much of it to be very useful to me, since little of it was missions-focused or modern-looking. What I found useful was a couple of globe graphics and a few collages of people-drawings. I think it's somewhere around $10. Call 215-657-5888. Caleb Project's website also has some clipart, but again, not very impressive. http://www.goshen.net/calebproject. In addition, I think most graphics programs that contain clipart will have maps, globe graphics, and graphics of different ethnic people.--Nate Wilson <email@example.com>

I know that the SBC Foreign Mission Board has clip art sheets available --some of which are not denominationally specific. Besides individual agencies, The Church Art Works provides commercial clip art for the church -- some of which would be missions related. I know that they can provide clip art in books or on diskette, though I don't have an address handy right now. --John Lochridge <John@XC.org>
There is a great clipart site at <http://www.barrysclipart.com> There is a section of Christian clipart, though I don't know that there is anything specifically oriented towards missions.--Larry Wilson - <LWilson@xc.org>
You might try the following address. I have found some real decent clipart, and there are several pages to link to after.....http://ns2.clever.net/~graphics/clip_art/relg/relg.html --David - <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I (Dave Nesmith) have an ad for Kingdom Graphics from EMQ. The ad specifically mentions "Mission Clip-Art." They may have expanded their inventory since Nate's experience...or...maybe not. Give them a look. Kingdom Graphics Phone: 215-657-5888 2713 Mount Vernon Avenue Fax: 215-657-4847 Willow Grove, PA 19090 CompuServe: 103210.2503
