Mike Card's new album 'LUKE- A World Turned Upside Down'

I am excited to announce the release of Mike Card's new album 'LUKE- A World Turned Upside Down'... I'm blessed to have two of my songs on the recording which were written this fall with Mike. 'A Breath of a Prayer' was recorded with three voices, Mike, myself and Matthew Ward from 2nd Chapter of Acts fame... 'How Much... More a Servant Could He Be?' is a duet with Mike... I hope you enjoy!

Dear Beloved Family


Dear Beloved Community

Recently the Census Bureau published findings on Middle Tennessee that reveal our income gaps continuing to widen. Nashville’s worst neighborhood for median income is today twenty times lower than the median income of our richest neighborhood — a statistic which was fifteen times lower only ten years ago. That is an alarming increase over a very short period of time depicting our region as one where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer.

Dear Beloved Community,

Together, we will face some serious challenges as we enter 2011.  The world seems to be speeding up and shrinking every minute and with our social network hormones on full we experience emotional ups and downs almost simultaneously.  There is an awareness of more information coupled with an extreme sensitivity to those demands like never before.  Just the lists of what happened to each of us from this past year would be overwhelming to most of our ancestors not for one year but for the entire course of their lives!  We seem to live more life in one day than our parents did over several year

Beloved Community,

We are facing difficult times as the weather changes and the extreme cold moves in… maybe it is a signal for us to re-evaluate our commitment to speak up for those who cannot speak.  The recent Middle Tennessee Flood has left families who still need serious help and this winter’s forecasted difficult economic climate will make it impossible for many of our citizens to make it through financially.  This is a concern for those who follow Jesus. 


"A prison cell, in which one waits, hopes - and is completely dependent on the fact that the door of freedom has to be opened from the outside, is not a bad picture of Advent"  Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Join us for the Spring 2011 Grace & Men Conferences

What is the purpose of The Gospel Man Initiative and Conference?

May the blessings of Advent be yours.

Martin Luther once remarked,somewhat lightly, that the Incarnation consists of three miracles: "The first, that God became man; the second, that a virgin was a mother; and the third, that the heart of man should believe this." Believe and be set free...

As Christmas approaches...

I’m sure you are like me in that the coming season brings both joy and sadness.  We can be joyful because if we believe the Gospel is true we celebrate the greatness of His coming. But, we can also be sad because our unbelief sometimes robs us of the peace His Story brings.  So, I decided to send you a brief understanding of what it is we truly believe hoping it brings Grace and Peace to your life.
