Producing “Prepare! For The End-Time Harvest”

Why You Must Listen to Don Finto's New Audio Book!

Prepare! For The End Time Harvest

A few months ago, I had the honor of producing the audio book version of Don Finto’s latest book “Prepare! For The End-Time Harvest”. 

“Pappa Don” has been one of the most influential spiritual leaders in my life, as he has been for countless others in Nashville and around the world.

Recording “Prepare!” audio book with Pappa Don Finto.

I knew “Prepare!” was an important work when we were recording it. Don Finto, at age 87, is a modern day Caleb,  vigorous and strong in the Lord. His keen insight on the times in which we live, delivered powerfully through his extensive lens of a lifetime of Biblical wisdom, make this a “must listen” audio book.

REPORT: Our Epic Eastern Europe Missions Trip – Spring 2017

Worship Discipleship Ministry in Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Hungary

Hi Friends! Here is our most recent missions report loaded with pics and details. During the month of May 2017, Ivalene and I embarked on an epic worship discipleship trip teaching and doing worship ministry in Ukraine, Bulgaria, and Hungary.

God is on the move!

  • We saw the Lord move powerfully through answered prayer in our times of ministry throughout the entire time we were overseas.
  • This trip affirmed there seems to be an on-going need need for Biblical discipleship – teaching, encouraging and  impartation – in the areas of worship ministry. We were able to meet this need in our own unique way. People were hungry, receptive and appreciative. This was a great blessing!
  • The Holy Spirit truly helped us teach and communicate effectively. We were very encouraged by the feedback from those we were serving.
  • Angels were working overtime to keep us healthy and safe in travel. We faced some challenges and difficulties, but the Lord saw us through every one.
  • The Lord proved himself to be very good!

Nashville Alive TV Appearance

Sharing My Story & A Song of Hope

I recently was able to share my story and songs on the Nashville Alive TV show.

We talk about my background in the jingle biz, how I got into worship, A New Anointing and No Easy Answers. It was a lot of fun!

Check it out, I’m the second guest at 12:53 into the show,  my segment is about 13 minutes long.

A Hilarious Moment

After singing No Easy Answers, the host Galen Davis (also Pastor at Cornerstone Church, Madison, TN) says:

“You know, i like, I love you in Jesus, but hate you in the flesh …”

This cracked me up.

“You said better in 3 minutes what we as pastors try to say in 45 minutes…”

That’s the power of a song to minister the good news of the gospel. I hope that is encouraging to you too!

God is good all the time!

Do You Know These 10 Amazing Reasons Why We Worship ?

Biblical Essentials for Everyone

Why do Christians worship? Why should we sing and praise and worship God?

Matt Redman has a wonderful song entitled “10,000 Reasons” that offers many affirmations for praising God. But there are far more than just 10,000 reasons to bless and worship the Lord.

Here are what I consider to be 10 amazing reasons “why we worship”. These are at the top of my list. What would you add?

1. We worship because God is worthy.

Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom. Psalm 145:3

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies. Psalm 18:3

The truth is, the one true God is the only being worthy of worship. Worship directed anywhere else is not only unfulfilling, it is vain idolatry. God alone is worthy of all of our praise.

A Day Worth Remembering & Celebrating!

Had a wonderful Resurrection Sunday service at Christ Community Church in McMinnville. Jesus is the game changer!

The backdrop in this Instagram graphic was a painting that was created live and upside down during the worship! Amazing!

The painting coincided with pastor Paul’s message on things being turned upside down.

The church was packed and we were blessed to play with a great team of musicians.
