About this project
Hello! Thanks for checking out our kickstarter page.
We’re musicians from Christ Community Church in Athens, GA, and we’re trying to make a record in March.
Why are we doing that, you ask? Well, God is doing something unique in the lives of our musicians and our church, and we want to share it. Maybe it’s not unique to the whole world, but it’s unique for us. As musicians, we love to make much of Jesus through our songs, and we love doing it together. As our worship leader Aaron Slaten likes to say, “Making music is just better with your friends.” We have been blessed with incredible friendships inside of our band. That makes leading music together that much more worshipful to us. As a church, we are watching our family grow and learn to be missionaries in our city. Our gatherings on Sundays push us towards the goal of knowing and following Jesus more.
The music you will hear on our upcoming record are most likely all songs you have heard before, but hopefully you will hear them in a fresh way. We want to record songs you know with a different style. We love to be creative with rhythm and melodies. We love to add tag-lines to old hymns. That’s what you will get with our recordings.
So what is this kickstarter page? It’s a way for you to support us in making this project happen. We literally can’t do it without you! We need to raise $7,500 by February 9th to ensure we can record in March. Those costs will cover studio time, mixing, mastering, printing copies of the CD, and all the other little details that go into a project like this. We know it is a lot of money, but we believe it is worth it. If you do, too, would you considering partnering with us to make this record happen?
Here’s how partnering with us works -
If you look to your right, you will see different gifts you can pledge to give ... and then gifts you will receive in-turn! We’re giving away things like b-side recordings, copies of the record early, an offer to join us in the studio, and even a live concert at a place of your choosing.
This part is important ... if we don’t reach our goal of $7,500 by February 9th, we won’t get any of the money pledged to us. We’re really hoping you will join us in making this record, and we hope you are blessed by the final product.

Your account will not be debited until February 9th, and only if we have received all $7,500! If we come short of our goal, no money will be debited from your account.
Please give now! That will give us a better idea as we get closer to the deadline of February 9th how much we will still need to reach our goal.
First of all, come join us on a Sunday morning in Athens, Georgia. If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you will see our church website linked - http://www.missionathens.com . From there you can find out where & when we gather, read more about our church and more about our music!
