Vision & Mission


At 567 Ministries, we realize that less than 10% of parents share their faith with their kids, and we want to equip families to combat that stat! In short, we believe that passing down faith to our kids, matters. We are here to provide parents with innovative tools that will help them have catalytic faith conversations with their children. As parents ourselves, we know that the most influential faith conversations begin organically with our kids, not the other way around. Therefore, we have thoughtfully created high-quality scripture-based artwork that will inspire curiosity in your kids, and most importantly, lead parents to opportunities to share their faith. Each illustration will also include a parent resource that will prepare parents to share their faith engagingly with their kids! We desire to help empower the most significant spiritual influence in the lives of young people: their parents. We look forward to helping you engage your kids in meaningful conversations that will result in a faith that takes root deeply in their hearts and minds!

Jago Silver


Some time ago, a boy called Jago arrived here on Earth with a burning ambition to be .... Superman, Indiana Jones, or quite possibly King Arthur. After a little hard work and an awful lot of drawing he settled on my fourth choice of career, illustrating children's books, something he reckons he could be quite good at one day. Jago lives in a slightly damp wetsuit in Cornwall with his fantastically lovely wife Alex, beautiful daughter Lily Peach and small round son, Rudy. Jago works almost entirely digitally, using a couple of Macs and an iPad in a secret blend of the finest textures, papers and digital paints. He enjoys working on children's books and is drawn to projects with a hint of eccentricity. Jago is represented by the wonderful Ronnie Herman at The Herman Agency in New York. He has produced illustrations for over 40 children’s books as well as handful of magazines and album covers, with clients in the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia, South Korea and South Africa. If he's not drawing, he's probably at the beach….
