So I was planning on sticking with the plan to only post about my forgotten experiences at Catalyst West, but I woke up early today and have been listening to an old CD that we made when i was at Life Church in ’02. For those of you who don’t know, we moved to the Temecula Valley in ’02 to start a Church that we named Life Church (not affiliated with the Oklahoma Church).
When we began the Church I had never really lead worship with a band before. And as I sit here listening to this CD from that first year my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. So I thought I’d take some time to say some “Thank Yous”…
Thank you John Ruhlman for your leadership in those early years and for taking a chance on me and our team.
Thank you band for truly carrying me through the huge learning curve. I don’t think I ever realized how talented you all really were! Man, what I could do with a band like that today… 😉
Mike Meyerpeter – Bass
Dan Verkade – Keys
Rich Kettner – Egtr
Mike Huffman – Egtr
Brian McNeil – Drums (all the best drummers I’ve played with say they’re not drummers)
Amanda Smith – Vox
Crystal Johnson – Vox
John Matthews – Sound
Thank you to my wife for embarking on this crazy adventure that we call “Church Planting”!
Thank you to the C&MA & Don Brust for believing in and supporting us.
Thank you God for not striking us down with lightening when we messed up and wounded your people because of our arrogance!
