The idea for our organization began amongst a few friends on Google Plus. Through our spirited conversations, we discussed the needs of the community and how we could assist in fulfilling that need. As a result we came up with combining the arts and helping the community. The vehicle of this idea became known as "The Poetic Soul Festival." 


As time has passed we named ourselves "Agape1969," and changed "The Poetic Soul Festival" to its staple event. Through fundraising and growing ideas it was inevitable that this nonprofit was born.

Our mission is to bring opportunities to the community by way of the arts. We will be doing this through events, fundraising, conferences and more. We hope to be able to support the community through scholarship programs, mentorship, helping other active charities with their emergent needs, to make sure our communities are growing and becoming self-sufficient.

First I would like to say that I am honored to be able to donate for such a good cause. I am not always able, none the less I am more fortunate than others. I want to commend K.Barnes and the others for their efforts and kind hearts. We need more like you guys. I think feeding the less fortunate is a wonderful thing. Keep up the good work! Respectfully Yours.

When my brothers and I were young we lost our home to a terrible fire. So local charities and friends came together to help my mom. Thank God that today I am able to always give back and bless others because I am blessed.. Keep up the good work and God Bless each soul that is involved in this project!

I'm making this donation in honor of my late sister, "Mike", because helping others is what she always did. I want to bless someone by blessing her memory.
