At the time of this recording, I was working cross-culturally on the Fort Apache Reservation in Arizona, while writing music, and leading worship in different settings.
I had been leading worship for over 12 years, and writing music since I first picked up a guitar in my teens. Previously, I had ministered on staff at the International House of Prayer in Atlanta, GA, (with my awesome wife) for three years and was absolutely gripped with by the fact that God not only takes interest in little ol’ me, but delights in me and desires for me to co-labor with Him in loving the world. For me, that’s a large part of what this project is about.
Bob Mabry and Bruce Goode have been friends and mentors to me for years, and I have always been encouraged by their humble example, both in their personal lives and on stage leading worship. Not only that, but I also feel that their song lyrics and worship leading styles are reflective of their personalities and passion for the Lord. While this project was a year’s journey (being pieced together here and there), it was a labor of love for me to be able to spend time with Bob and Bruce (as well as an awesome crew of musician friends) and to work on their music – which are really reflections of the messages that God is speaking in and through their lives.
