    EDIT2: The .psd (along with other attachments) arent uploading on iptf right now, I will try tomorrow
    EDIT3: What should I put in the top/bottom right corner?

    I'm Christian myself, but don't understand the meaning of the circles in the background. All other aspects are good.

    Nice, everything looks good except that background purple target looks out of place, does it have any meaning?

    Plain, or something abstract like a small brush or vector.

    The circles help to break up a somewhat boring background. Don't take them out.

    I really can't explain it, it's something sort of abstract, if not then keep the circles.

    Give the PSD and I'll whip something up.
