Eikon worship leader Dustin Hecocks records his full length debut album this Summer, comprised of powerful music and worshipful lyrics.
After four years of writing, arranging, and laboring over these songs, it is finally time to begin the recording of our first full length album!
We believe that the Lord is moving through us and with us; that He has inspired us creatively, that He is equipping us spiritually, and we are trusting that He will provide for us financially, through you! With a collection of songs inspired by the last four years of grace and trial, joy and suffering, and success and failure, we find ourselves in a place ready and confident that this project is what the Lord has called us to do. We are confident that the Lord's timing is perfect, and that time is NOW.
This is a project with one goal and one mission: to lift and glorify the name of The Lord, and to preach Christ and Him crucified. These songs are meant not only to be highly energetic and fun to listen to, but meant to primarily glorify the greatness of our God, reflect upon Christ's grace and mercy, and even dig deep into the ugly parts of the struggles of man. My hope is that each and every one of these songs would reach people where they are at, and lead them to their maker and savior, Jesus Christ.
This project and these songs were birthed from the last four years spent leading worship for a ministry of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale called EIKON. Eikon is a group of over 700 young adults; a group passionate for and in love with Christ. After spending four years in community with this group, many of these songs reflect the struggles we have walked through, as well as the many amazing things God has done through this community. My hope is to see this record be a reflection of this ministry, and that everyone that I've spent these last four years with would be able to receive a copy of this CD regardless of whether or not they can pay for it.
And now for some of the gritty details. This record is going to cost $12,000 in total from start to finish. And we are starting from zero. My goal is to raise all $12,000. But I have set the kickstarter goal at $6,000, because that is the minimum amount that will enable us to begin recording and get the project started. This will also buy us some time to figure out the rest of the financing if need be. My hope for this record is that it can be a tool used for ministry, to reach people and lead them to Christ. And being able to fully fund the record, all $12,000 of it, without taking out loans or going into debt will go a long way in making that hope a reality.
That is our mission: to get this CD into as many people's hands as possible and to point them to Christ through the music that we've made. And so I humbly ask that you would consider joining us in this project, and being a part of what I firmly believe is something that the Lord is moving in and through. Thank you for your love and support; it is worth more than you know!
