We are a ministry first and a band second. We strive to make music that challenges people and opens up doors for us to truly reach others with the message of hope our music expresses.

In order to reach people we've never met, we need to reach a new platform, take risks, make sacrifices, and continue to walk through the doors that God opens for us.

With that said, through all the prayers, an amazing opportunity has been presented to us. We will be going to Nashville this summer to work with the super-talented and creative, Jon Steingard, lead singer and guitarist of Hawk Nelson to record a 5-song EP.

This will be ALL NEW music, which we are very excited about! We've worked hard to continue to make it even better than albums past. We will always strive to make music that is interesting to listen to vocally, instrumentally, and lyrically.

We've always supported ourselves financially as much as possible. Unfortunately, with an opportunity of this magnitude and the amount of professional musicians and production artists involved in this high quality of work, compensating them for their services is something we cannot do on our own.

This is where we need your help, both in prayer and financially. We'd ask that you pray about this and if you believe our ministry is something valuable and can support, that you would consider giving financially to this EP. We would be so honored and grateful for your help in this ministry. We could not have made it this far without the generous support we've already had from our family, friends, and of course, our amazing fans!

We have only 30 days to reach our financial goal! But we feel that with the wonderful support-team of fans, friends, and family alike, God will provide a way for this to happen.

Thank you for your continued support! We offer all kinds of rewards to those who give financially and will keep everyone updated on our progress! We may have some other surprises along the way that we'll share with you when the time comes! 

In Him,

Bayless

Risks and challenges

Every project comes with risks and challenges. We will have only 5-6 days to complete this project while in Nashville, but we are confident we will do so and will take every step to finish it, even if we must push past that timeline.

Above the amount needed to be raised, we intentionally left out the cost of lodging, food, and transportation. Our goal of $5,250 is the exact amount needed to fund the EP production alone. If we raise more than our goal amount, those funds will go towards lodging, food, and transportation.

It will be a challenge to pull together all the funds needed for this project as well as extra expenditures, but we are confident that God will provide, regardless if it is in the money raised with the Kickstarter, or through working hard and using our own funds.

We would ask that you still pray for us in this journey. We're excited, nervous, and anxious. This is a new adventure into uncharted territory, but with the chance to radically see this ministry move in a way it never has before. There will be challenges, but as with everything in life, you have to work hard and push through the challenges in order to grow and to see the blessings on the other side.

If for some reason we do not raise this money, we will still look at ways to be able to fund this and pray about how God might use us in a different avenue to achieve this goal. We feel strongly about this opportunity and know that God will provide and we'll see some amazing things happen along the way as you follow along with us.

Thank you for your prayers, your support, and your friendships. They mean more to us than you'll ever know.
