A little over ten years ago I was in a time of worship at the Way Inn, in Paia, Maui. As I was singing along with around 100 other ywammers ( missionaries) I felt God clearly prompt and whisper in my ear something completely unexpected. I was a senior in High School at the time and thought I had it pretty much figured out as far as what I would do with my life; where I'd go, who I'd go with, what I would do along the way. This still small voice suggested something that at the time, was completely out of the box for me. I felt the Father say that he had called me to be a worshipper and someone that would lead 1,000's to him in worship. I remember not completely believing him.
"You got the wrong guy!"
But he persisted and over that year I opened my heart and allowed this new adventure to unfold. It's now well over 10 years since that initial encounter and God truly knew what was best. I have no greater joy than being used by God in this way. Someone who worships wholeheartedly and leads other into that pursuit.
My prayer and hope is that this album will capture the journey I have been on with Jesus the past decade or so. That it would compel everyone who listens to embark on their own journey of discovering who he really is. That they would be compelled by the content as well as the melody, rhythm and rhyme. My heart is to make this as accessible to as many people as possible, therefore I'm starting with the intention to give this album away for free as a gift to anyone who would want it. This will not be possible without my friends, family and even people who stumble along this project along the way investing and releasing it to be a blessing to many.
