After years of prep, I'm ready to produce my first full-length worship album, packed with songs that move me to a posture of praise.

Worship comes from the old English word weorthship. "Weorth" meaning worth, and "ship" meaning quality or condition.  We see "ship" used today in words like friendship, leadership, and sponsorship.  Possessing the quality or condition of a friend, leader, sponsor... or worth.

God has the quality of worth and worthiness. It's a simple idea that has a profound impact on how we live, serve, and respond.  If the Bible is true, and God is worthy of all "power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing", then He is worthy of all our praise, and worth all our life.

And that is what worship is about.  My hope is that this album will help the Church worship the Lord with all of her heart, mind, soul, and strength.

Kickstarter is an "all-or-nothing" crowdfunding site.  If I don't reach my goal of $3,403, no pledges will be charged and no funding will be issued.  Please pray with me for cheerful givers, and share this campaign with your friends and family.  The more people that know the better!

These Kickstarter funds will help pay for...

  • Recording Software
  • Studio Microphones
  • Audio Interface
  • Mixing Monitors
  • Licensing
  • Mastering
  • CD Artwork and Layout Design
  • CD Duplication and Digital Distribution

My goal is to record over the summer months for a mid-October release. Reward packages will be issued starting with the release of the new album.

Risks and challenges

As with any creative endeavor, there are risks and challenges that must be faced. Over the years, through school and real world experience, I believe I have acquired the skills to overcome any obstacles that may arise in the recording process. But, if not, I have a network of people I can call on for advice and help. Most importantly, I have tried to live my life by a code: "Where You don't go, I don't go." And I wouldn't be launching this campaign if I wasn't 100% sure that this is the direction the Lord is leading me in.

"Thank you" doesn't come close to letting you all know how much your help means. Nevertheless, thank you.
Thank you for praying.
Thank you for sharing.
And thank you for giving.
To Him be the glory.

"Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt His name together." - Psalm 34:03
