Over the last 3 years, I've been passionately writing songs for my little Calvary Chapel Church in Sequim. With Your help, we'd like to share 5 of these treasured songs with you. 

Inspired by the poetry of the old Hymns, & the beautiful melodies of folk tradition, I've been combining the two into something truly unique, yet familiar. All the songs are centered on the the Gospel & Jesus Christ, and speak of His life, death, resurrection, and Love for humanity. 

We have a fantastic team friends who are musicians, engineers, & artists who are poised ready to dive into making these songs come to life, ALL WE NEED IS YOUR HELP!!!


Here's the Rundown on the Cost:

  • 3 Weeks of Recording & Engineering: $3,500
  • Mastering at RFI $750
  • CD Duplication: $1,092
  • Album Design & Photography: $658

        GRAND TOTAL: $6,000

Please, donate to help our little church record these songs and share them with you, and afterward spread the news to your friends & other churches!

Thanks again so much for supporting us, we're incredibly grateful!

Shalom,

David Isaac Rivers

Risks and challenges

For this production, we have our team assembled. We have a solid studio we trust, a brilliant engineer, we have producers we've worked well with before. Our primary challenge is gaining exposure for our Kickstarter campaign. Everyone in a leadership roll on this production has done this a lot before and my confidence in them is deep. Being as far from the city as we are, our primary roadblocks generally deal with our capacity for exposure.

However, on this project we have the loving support of our home church and a network of Calvary Chapels around the world to look to for help with funding and with getting the word out. We're truly passionate about this project and getting our new Christ-centered songs into the ears and hearts of people. We have passion, we have a disciplined plan, and we have faith. For all of these reasons, we have faith in our success.
