We have arrived in Washington DC, VA. After much time on the road, meeting a lot of awesome people and having a crazy schedule, I am able to write a blog about the past week. But first things first, Michael Gungor and his wife are incredible musicians. So inspiring, and if you haven’t checked them out we highly recommend it. I will get to that in a little bit, but here is our update!
Last week we left NC, drove a few hours and arrived at Liberty University. We gave ourselves a small tour upon arrival. Will Mikkelson, a former Oceans Edge alumni and lead electric guitarist in the band 71 at Liberty, was playing that night, so we visited him and were able to see how they lead worship and worship with them, which was a blessing.
Anyways, on to the good stuff. The next morning which was friday we loaded up and drove over to Liberty from the hotel, we showed up as the campus band was setting up. After they they sound checked, it was our turn. There we are in the Vines Center at Liberty about to play for 15,000 plus people. After the campus band led their set, we jumped in our places on stage. Check out the video!
Needless to say, we were able to play an original at Liberty’s convocation. It’s amazing what God can do in a your life, never did we think we could do something like that and yet God proves us wrong again. Pastor Bob Coy, our pastor from Ft. Lauderdale spoke after us. It was a genuinely great day.
That same night we scored tickets to see David Crowder band, Gungor, John Mark McMillan and a couple others. Gungor came out and did an acoustic set, with a cello player who beat-boxed. It was indescribable, just check it out on youtube if you get a chance! They played a great set, and just kept you mesmerized in the whole time. Their music is not only different from anything we have ever heard, but different from any kind of worship that we are used to. Its incredible.
We also were able to play and worship with Calvary Chapel Lynchburg, and hangout with a great host home and worship with some incredible people. We had a great time there and we’re excited to see what God is doing in that church. The vision of the church is so clear, and the out reach ministries are on a great track to furthering the Kingdom of God! We have learned so much in the past few weeks that no matter where we end up and what the church is doing, we have Christ together. We are all truly one family, and people always treat us that way. Its such an incredible thought to know that God is the center of everything we do and the center of every church we visit.
Also, Will Mikkelson who I had mentioned earlier let Mike use his amp, here is the result.
Well, tonight we are off to play and worship with some Park Valley Youth! Excited to head to Morgantown, West Virginia tomorrow! And excited for what God is not only doing with us, but with you, your friends and the world!
