About this project
I've recorded 7 albums over the past few years, but I've never done a corporate / traditional worship album. It's become my heart's desire to write and sing songs that we can sing together -- songs that reflect God's character, His heart toward us, and our response to Him.
This desire intensified after I visited Israel for the first time in April. I wrote a piece on my blog about what that trip did to my heart -- you can read it here. In short, that trip left me longing for the return of Christ. That's why I'm calling this album Come Back Soon. It's a plea for His return.
One of my favorite lyrics from the songs we've written for this album says:
Would You bend a holy ear / to hear a sinner's tune?
Every heart is singing / Would You come back soon?
Come back soon.
Whether your life is filled with pain or joy, whether your body is broken or healthy, all God's children can rest in the truth that our joy will be full after He returns.
"I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am, you may be also." - John 14:3
Risks and challenges
This album only happens if we reach the entire $8,000 goal. If we're even $1 short of that, Kickstarter doesn't draft the funds from your bank account. It's kind of like the process of commissioning an artist to create a piece.
Over the years, I've seen how much people love being a part of the process, not just the recipients of the art. People who funded my last album and my book (via Kickstarter), still come up to me at concerts and say, "I Kickstarted you!" It's such a great way to build community and for me to be able to personally thank those involved.
Without your support, this project doesn't happen. But with your prayer and financial support, we can move forward together to create this worship album!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
