We have called St Louis home for the last 4.5 years. It has been an amazing home. We love the people. We love our church. Cardinals Baseball. The architecture. Autumn. Movies on Art Hill. 75 degree weather in July. Snow on Christmas Eve. Dewey’s Pizza. We love this city. We have grown so much here as a family, both literally (going from 2 little girls to 5 kids!) and spiritually. God has done so much in our lives and we couldn’t be more grateful for our time at The Journey. Yet over the past... [read more]

Why Give Away Worship Music?

It was a great year for music, especially for corporate worship music. So many great worship albums came out that pushed the musical envelope of creativity both sonically and lyrically, without alienating the church from congregational participation. I am grateful beyond words. The church really was the winner this year. From the pop side of things, it seemed that so much just sounded like the exact same dance club remix with a different voice on it. Yet a few artists really stood out and made s... [read more]

Humble Guitarists?

I recently went to a conference for worship leaders and attended a breakout group designed for electric guitar players. As we crowded together for the session, the leader made a comment that this room had just become the most opinionated room in the whole conference. It’s funny, because it’s true. It’s sad, because it’s too true. Electric guitar players seem to have a special proclivity to strong opinions. We love to think that our way is THE way. Over my years of playing electric guitar...
