Michael Jr. – Laughing on Purpose

Michael-jr-laughing-on-purpose

  In his own words, Michael Jr. likes to “bring the funny” in his stand up comedy, skits, short films and various YouTube videos.  While he does perform for secular audiences, he is commonly performing in front of church crowds and as a Christian, there is always a good message woven into his comedy routine. Sit back, relax and enjoy Michael Jr. bring the funny!

Worship Wednesday: Zauntee | God Taught Me

Zauntee – God Taught Me Don’t like rap?  Wait!  Don’t leave yet!  While this song certainly isn’t the typical worship song you would sing in church, it has a catchy beat and a great theme running through the lyrics.  “When they ask me why I’m different I say, God Taught Me”. And for those who like a heavy bass line, your subs will get the work out they crave during the chorus! With Christian Rap artists like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, NF, Trip Lee and Tedashii releasing popular songs that are even gaining traction from audiences that typically do not explore the Christian genres, […]

NEW RELEASE: Elevation Worship – There Is a Cloud

There_Is_a_Cloud_by_Elevation_Worship

Elevation Worship – There Is a Cloud The new album from Elevation Worship titled “There Is a Cloud” is set to release on March 17th, 2017.  Several of the tracks have already been made available in digital formats so we already have a good feel for the album.  In the past, Elevation Worship has released live albums from concerts performed the prior summer.  This album breaks that tradition (sort of) by releasing an album recorded during the Code Orange Revival that was held at Elevation Church Ballantyne campus, from September 9th-21st, 2016.  Despite the different atmosphere, Elevation Worship brings another powerful performance […]

Elevation Worship – Here as in Heaven The latest work from Elevation Worship is set to release today, February 5th, 2016.  This is a live recording from their concert in Charlotte, NC on July 31st, 2015.  I was fortunate enough to have my travel plans allow me to be in Charlotte for this show and it was truly phenomenal.  I had attended the live show the prior summer for “Wake Up the Wonder” so I knew this was one of the shows I didn’t want to miss.  As they had the prior year, they packed the house with people eager […]

God’s Love Brought Us To Another Year

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22, 23 As we embark on a new year filled with endless possibilities, it is imperative that we remember who we owe it all too… Moses reminds us today that we have been offered a chance to see the year 2016 because of the love of God and not the alarm clock or loved one who woke us up this morning… You have a chance to right your wrongs today, a chance to write a […]

Worship Wednesday: Elevation Worship – Resurrecting Performed by Mack Brock

Elevation Worship – Resurrecting Typically we post videos on “Worship Wednesday” that have been officially released by the artist on Youtube.com.  Unfortunately for this song by Elevation Worship, I have not been able to locate an “official” version, but I really want to share this song’s message with all our readers.  That said, please forgive the video quality.  🙂 According to Pastor Steven Furtick, of Elevation Church, this song almost was thrown away because they just couldn’t quite get the lyrics right.  Now satisfied, they sing it during praise and worship time at the church.  And they also performed it […]

Judah Smith – Jesus Is_____. Find A New Way To Be Human

Judah Smith has a great book that’s worth checking out that defines what Jesus can, and should mean to us based on how we fill in that last word of the sentence.  Personally, I would prefer to say “Jesus Is.”  He just…”Is”.  Just as we say that God is the Great “I Am”.  But then we get into semantics.  We understand the intention of this question. I first stumbled across Judah Smith via a YouTube video from a conference.  It’s amazing the treasures you can find while intending to view another video.  You go online to find a video about […]
