Being raised as a pastor's kid, my heart goes out to the local church. I believe God has given each and every one of us a special gift’s and talent to further God's kingdom. I feel it's important to encourage God's people the importance of having a personal relationship with God, and to be connected to a local church, especially in today's society. The majority of church growth is transient growth, people jumping from one church to another. The music I share is a mix between "Traditional to Contemporary Christian."(Chris Tomlin, Mercy Me, Matt Redmond, etc...)
