Worship through music has been a passion of mine for much of my life. When I was 12, I started playing guitar and piano in church as well as writing my own worship music. Now as a worship leader here in Southern California, I have the privilege of leading in worship each week. There is truly no greater joy than being in God's presence both together as the body of Christ and individually in daily communion with him.
Heaven's Harbor is a collection of songs written over several years that seeks to lift high the name of Jesus in our lives. Through the support and encouragement of the local body and the prompting of the Holy Spirit, I've felt lead to release this full length album of original songs. In addition to this album, I wanted to give you an exclusive EP of hymn arrangements as a way of saying thank you for your support. This EP will not be publicly released and will only be available to those who support this Kickstarter at a $25 level or more.
One of my favorite Bible verses is Colossians 3:23 "Whatever you do, do it heartily as unto the Lord and not unto men." Above all else, my desire is that God would be glorified through this album. I want to give God the very best that I have, recognizing that everything is a gift from Him. That is why I am seeking your support. I realize that I can't do this on my own, but with your help and through the power of the Holy Spirit, I know we can make this project a reality.
In order to make Heaven's Harbor a reality, we need to raise the achievable goal of $4,000. Here is what that money will go towards.
Engineering and Mixing: I have the privilege of working with several amazing people including, Brian Doyle and David Koenig who will be helping record and mix this album.
Equipment Rental: Part of having a great sounding album is using top of the line studio equipment.
Musicians: We will be working with some incredibly talented musicians on this project.
Mastering: Basically, this is what you do to make an album sound good.
Album Artwork and Video Production: I'm lucky to have the incredible Bobby Rognlien doing all of the design and video production on this project.
Duplication: This will go towards the production and printing of CDs as well as other materials.

Risks and challenges
Embarking on this project is an act of faith for everyone involved. I have faith in you to not only achieve this goal but surpass it. In return, you are trusting me and the entire team to put our hearts and souls into this project and to see it through to completion. Ultimately, we are all trusting in God and his provision and favor. With that in mind, we are setting a goal of completing the album by April of 2015. I am confident that we will be able to meet that goal, but there is a small chance that production could be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you in advance for your patience and your prayers as we move forward in God's calling together.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
