The Fall Album Art

I am excited to announce the release of “The Fall – EP”!!!

For those of you who are just tuning in, “The Fall – EP” is part 2 of a two EP worship project titled “The Rise & The Fall”. On January 1, 2014 (our anniversary) my wife and I took a HUGE leap and launched a Kickstarter campaign that would fund this worship project and with the prayers and backing of over 250 amazing people we exceeded our goal and have been able to go on the most incredible journey to bring these songs to you. 

“The Fall – EP” particularly comes from a very deep place in Kelley and I. The song “Hold Me Still” was the very first song we wrote after our precious daughter Aria Joy went to be with the Lord. “All of You” was such a personal reminder of ALL that Christ had given us in the midst of what felt like the greatest loss we’d ever experienced. “Burn Afresh” is a declaration and a prayer boasting in the relentless love of God and requesting that we be compelled by that love, especially on the days when we don’t “feel” like it. “Lay it Down” is an anthem of surrender and trusting God beyond what we can understand or control. This EP also features a spoken word piece written by Kelley that may easily be one of the best messages I’ve heard when it comes to grief and suffering. I believe this EP is full of honest confessions and hope-filled declarations that every believer can connect to in the various places of life. Continue Reading…

WHY “THE RISE”?

20140130-150853.jpgWhat’s good?! We are so thrilled to see how many amazing people have backed our worship project!!! A couple weeks ago we got to introduce one of the new songs from “The Fall” EP at church and the response was incredible! We are convinced more than ever that God is going to use these songs in an amazing way!

As we move closer to our KICKSTARTER deadline I wanted to communicate more of the vision and expectation behind “The Rise” & “The Fall”. The video below offers a look into part 1 of the 2 EP project, “The Rise”.

Please check it out and join us in making this project a reality!

THE GIVING AWAY

THE DREAM Aria Joy

I had pictured it in my mind a thousand times.

I would wake with a lump in my throat, happy that she had finally found “the one”, and broken hearted that my little redheaded angel, lovingly known as “sister”, would no longer be found in the crib but all grow’d up, in the arms of her love.

I would spend the day reminiscing of times when she was a baby. I would think about when we brought her home, the look on her brothers faces when they first laid eyes on her, and the many family trips we took together. I would be overwhelmed with emotion and probably be a crying mess, because that’s what having a little girl had done to me.

I would shake a little as I put on my tuxedo. I would rehearse the steps for the father/daughter dance in my mind. I would be left breathless when seeing her in her wedding gown for the first time. I would savor every measured step, with her hand in mine, as we walked down the aisle.

Her groom had come; it would be time to give her away.

GO CON

 

For the last several months I’ve been a part of an amazing team dreaming, planning, and executing Every Nation’s World Conference, themed GO! After many meetings, conference calls, songs selections, and more song selections, it’s finally GO time! The GO Conference marks the ceremonial 20th anniversary celebration of Every Nation Ministries.  An EN World Con only comes around every 3 years, but when it does there is nothing quite like it!

For the first time ever, Campus Harvest is coming to Jacksonville, FL…THIS WEEKEND!!! Students from all over the Southeast region will be gathering at Southpoint Community Church to encounter God and be forever changed. For over 20yrs Campus Harvest has served as a catalyst for transformation in the hearts of students all over the world and this year will be no exception! Already this year Campus Harvest has hosted student conferences in Calgary, Los Angeles, and Durham, NC.

I’ve had the joy of being a part of the Campus Harvest team for the last 12yrs, but every year I am reminded about the first time I attended. In 2001, I was invited to attended Campus Harvest by a friend of mine from our local church dance team who refused to take no for an answer. I was reluctant to come because I knew God was drawing me in and wanting to speak to me, but I had become quite comfortable playing the role of Jonah and pretending not to care.

I boarded the white 15 passenger van intentionally sitting shotgun because I didn’t want to have to talk to the “happy christian white kids in the back”. I now realize that the opposition and resistance I was feeling was the reeling of every oppressive circumstance and influencing lie that knew the end was coming for them.
