This is your chance to be a part of what I think is going to be a fantastic worship album! Come be even a small part of it with me!
Thank you for taking a minute to check out this project!
I am so excited to be about 3/4 of the way done my new full-length worship album I'm calling "From You For You". Everything we have is FROM HIM and ought to be used FOR HIM and His Kingdom and His glory. That's what I'm trying to do with what God has given me.
I am so blessed to hear great reports back all the time from people telling me that my songs have blessed them and impacted their lives and their walk with God. What an honor to be allowed into people's lives like that.
What I'm trying to do here is more of that. Create music that makes a difference in people's pursuit and relationship with God. Music that can become a background within which people find expression to God and can hear His voice speaking back to them. Just using what He's given me to make a difference to someone.
What I'm hoping you'll do is use whatever God has given you to help me accomplish this goal. You'll be sowing a seed into my ministry as well as into the lives of those I'll soon have the opportunity to touch through this album!
Please consider being a part! We'll have some fun in the process and once you're in the system here as a "backer" I'll be giving you lots of updates on the project's progress as we go! (+ your reward once we're funded!) ;)
Thanks and God bless you!
No one is charged ANY money right away. These are pledges. Only IF we meet our goal of $10,000 on June 12th will any transactions take place. If together we've raised the goal amount (or more) by that date THEN your pledge amount will be charged to your card on June 12th! ;)
Kickstarter allows projects to raise as much money as they can. Some projects raise 200% or even 300% of their initial goals!
Any money above the goal amount on this project will go directly to marketing and releasing this album as well as we possibly can. We want to GET THE WORD OUT THERE and let new people discover this music. That costs money - and the more that comes in the more we'll be able to spread the word!
YES! You can at any time before June 12th come back and add money to your pledge amount. When your total reaches a new rewards-level you can upgrade to the higher reward!
Yes. You can pick any reward level you want from your dollar amount pledged on down. You can also opt out of even receiving a reward if you're not into being rewarded!
