FBC Woodstock- Atlanta Christmas Musical 2016

Awesome time last weekend with great friends Scott and Millie White and Pastor Johnny Hunt at FBC Woodstock for their Atlanta Christmas Musical! Great job to all!






Songwriting with Rebecca Peck and Dr. Randy Lind!

Great time writing last week with the awesome Rebecca Peck and Dr. Randy Lind, Conductor of the Singing Churchmen and Singing ChurchWomen of Oklahoma! We wrote a song titled A Legacy of Faith in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Falls Creek Conference Center in Oklahoma. This great choir will record it and the anthem will be released from LifeWay Worship in September!


6th Annual Christmas in New York featuring Denver and the Mile High Orchestra, Travis Cottrell, and Marcia Ware

One of the things I love the most about Christmas in New York is the fact that each minister of music has the opportunity to conduct on the podium at Carnegie Hall! Or… in my case, try out some new disco moves.




Just wrapped up the two final days of The Sixth Annual Christmas in New York Ministry Trip (except for those staying for the extension through Friday)! Special thanks to each minister of music and participant that came on this trip! Thanks also to the great CCT Staff for their incredible hospitality to one and all! See you next year… with Point of Grace and Charles Billingsley!
















Two extraordinary days this weekend on the Christmas in New York trip! An incredible, anointed rehearsal yesterday with 350 awesome folks, dinner cruise last night, Brooklyn Tab this morning, dinner with the Ministers of Music tonight, Carnegie Hall tomorrow night to a packed house! Appreciate your prayers!













Our incredible Celebration Concert Tours staff just finished our final detail meeting with the awesome staff of the Crowne Plaza Times Square! Ready to welcome 350 of our best friends tomorrow from all across America- 16 choirs from 9 states for the Sixth Annual Christmas in New York! Merry Christmas, everyone!!!
