GREENSBORO, N.C., ( -- Brian Hibbard and Scott Harris have donated seven original paintings, created exclusively to celebrate the 25th anniversary of International Cooperating Ministries (ICM), as part of a nationwide silent auction to raise funds for ICM church-building projects.

Brian Hibbard is a professional painter and sculptor who is part of the growing art scene in North Carolina.

Scott Harris is an aluminum artist and sculptor rapidly gaining popularity throughout the Southeast. Born in Fargo, ND, Scott relocated to the mountains of North Carolina in 1996. He completed his BA in Visual Arts from Brevard College, where he first experimented with paint on aluminum due to its flexible surface. As the process evolved, he discovered the reflective quality of the material added depth and movement to his art. For more information, visit

ICM, founded by businessman Dois Rosser, has more than 3,800 churches built or under construction in 59 countries and uses the Mini Bible College, written by Pastor Dick Woodward, as its curriculum to nurture believers. This practical Bible survey is available in 26 languages through radio, Internet, audio players and printed study materials. More than 22,000 daughter congregations have been planted, and more than 28,000 small group Bible studies around the world use the Mini Bible College.

Leighton Ford, Leighton Ford Ministries: "Twenty-five years ago, at a meeting of global leaders in Germany, God planted in the heart of a layman, a businessman and servant of Christ, the vision of North American Christians partnering with Third World believers to plant new churches to reach the unreached. The result is evident in the thousands of churches planted and built to reach so many in the global south."

International Cooperating Ministries, a ministry of the Rosser Foundation, is a public charity tax-exempt 501(c)(3) headquartered in Hampton, Va.
