Matthew 28:19  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations. 

That is the mission...that is the cause... 

We've been blessed to be joined by many artists along the way in our music ministry.  Artists/musicians who have come forward and used their talents to help spread the gospel through the music that we have written.  We are forever grateful. You can meet them in our 'Photo Gallery'!
