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:

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!

“If we can change the way that the church understands music and worship, we will change the way the world encounters God.”  – Ray Hughes

This is a big idea, and quite profound if you’re serious about exploring and applying the answers. This is important because, in many areas, the “world” is rejecting God as represented today by the church. Many, many churches are struggling and in decline.
