The WHY realization of the calling 

For my entire life, music has been casually cast as a hobby, an aside to the many tasks that have made up my daily routine. Now, I have finally reached a point where my artistic expression is no longer an option to pursue, but rather a calling that I must answer to; a calling that you are crucial to helping me fulfill.

For nearly a decade, God has revealed my gift to cultivate worship through composition. In the midst of this revelation, I discovered my desire to highlight others’ worship leading gifts. In line with that, for the past 3 years, I have been working on recording the Thirst for You LP, a compilation of worship songs that I wrote during intimate times with God at my kitchen table.

Along this journey of completing the project, I have had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with the Worship Project Collective, a talented group of worship leaders and songwriters in their own right. Now, even though the entire project has been recorded, it is far from complete.

The WHAT the budget, rewards, and challenges 

In order to complete this project, I need your help to make the music sound as best as it possibly can. This process involves the following tasks:

  • Album Duplication: $750
  • Videography/Photography: $750
  • Design/Artwork/Printwork: $750
  • Merchandise: $500
  • Copyright/Licensing Fees: $250
  • Software/Equipment: $1000
  • Editing/Mixing/Mastering: $1000

  • The mixing allows people to hear all the different parts clearly & in proper balance, and the mastering provides a consistent sound across different platforms, whether it be your car stereo or your headphones. You can hear the effect of these elements on the single, All The Glory, by clicking below (or by searching for it on Spotify).

The WHEN 30 days

We have just 30 days to do this, but I am confident that we can make this come into fruition. So excited to make this happen with you - looking forward to what is to come!

The FRUIT the gift that keeps on giving

Upon completion of the successful Kickstarter campaign, once a month, I will release a track from the full-length Thirst for You LP. With this completed product in hand, together, we will be able to share the gospel all over the world. Join me in building the kingdom of God!

The REWARDS a token of my appreciation

For every contributing gift, I will honor you with a specific reward. For more details, please view them on the right side of the page.

Risks and challenges

Again, as stated in the WHEN section, we have just 30 days to make this happen. If we fall short of the $5,000 goal, I will not be able to redeem any of the funds. I don't doubt that we can do it though - let's make it happen!
