About Me:
40-something-year-old married father of 3, have been writing and recording my own music since the mid '80s. Currently building a more complete Project Studio for my own projects, as beginning to Produce for other artists. This may develop into a humble "Indie" label, of sorts. Also just recently received approval to start a new Alternative Worship Team to introduce a new Alternative Worship Service at my church! This will be a whole new thing for me, I'm excited and nervous all at the same time!!
Enjoy not only music, but also cars, autocross competition and road racing, graphic design, web development, photography, videography, target shooting and really too much more to list.
Favorite Music:
I'm a child of the '80s, and was always into the Alternative stuff, so I still love listening to iDEoLA (Mark Heard), Steve Taylor, Daniel Amos, LSU, Mad At the World and more.
More recently I really enjoy Kutless, Lifehouse, Switchfoot, Third Day and a lot more.
Favorite Bible Verses / Passages:
Never really had a favorite, I'll work on that for you.

New Alternative Worship Team / Service (First service date confirmed!)

Posted on May 27, 2009 at 4:00pm 0 Comments

Hi all!



As many of you know, I'm finally stepping out an putting together my own team. Of course, I had to reinvent the whole thing as I always do, so we're introducing a whole new Alternative Worship Service at our church, the first service has been confirmed for May 29, 2009.



Essentially these are going to be something of a combination of a "worship concert" and some pretty serious ministry time. The music will be loud enough that visitors can worship freely… Continue

Mightily used, mightily abused?

Mightily used, mightily abused?



Every now and again, we have the opportunity to step out of our comfort zone and do something really useful. Maybe it’s something at church; helping out in the nursery or food pantry, playing or singing on a worship team, ministering to someone who today just really needs to hear how much God loves them. Maybe it’s something in our every day lives; helping rake leaves or mow the yard of an elderly widow, offering our personal gifts for… Continue

So you want to make a CD?

We're all here because we enjoy music with a message, and many of us are here because we feel something of a calling on our lives in this respect. Whether it is it lead a simple acoustic worship set with a small group once a week, to lead congregational worship on Sunday mornings, or to become the next Chris Tomlin, these callings are no more or less important than one another. For most of us the hard part is; how do we achieve the goals we feel God placing in our hearts?

Winds of Change

The weather last few days here in Central Illinois have been much like the economic and political climate last several months throughout the world. Sunday in particular was one of the more interesting weather days here in several years. All night it had been raining with occasional thunderstorms, and Sunday morning was much the same. Even the visiting Pastor that spoke at our church used a close lightning strike and the imminent thunderous "boom" as an opportunity to make a point from the… Continue

Looking for a few good...Musicians?

Hey all!



Recently it was heavily laid on my heart to begin an Alternative Worship Service, run by a new Alternative Worship Team. Now, my church has always tried to be in tune with the leading edge of what Spirit is doing "now", so the Service was an easy sell...But also being a smallish church with a real strain on the small Worship Community, finding "band members" was going to be a real challenge.



Working up song lists, I'm finding useful music by all sorts of bands not… Continue

Hi Mikey!!  It has been way too long since I was here at WTR.  My wife got cancer and the Lord took her home in Sept.  So I decided I had better get back into my music.  Just playing my guitar again is so nice.  Take care Joe Roth

Hi Michael! Thanks for the advice, I think tho that I'll be going with the Alesis sr 16 for now at least, and Band in a Box. Temporarily, due to my finacial situation. If I can't get what I'm looking for I will probably be taking the services that you suggested.

Ya know, I do have a question regarding sleeplessness in young children. Be looking for a note from me. It's about my foster daughter. :)

Tingly Breath E. Piano... very impressive sound. It's inspired me to do some sound design on my synths. You must be spending every spare moment fiddling with your Oasys.

Hey man, thanks for joining the group and for starting that discussion. Like I said, very good questions. Anyway, welcome to the group and I hope you find it helpful.
Blessings,
Chris
