Music and pondering have always come fairly easily to me. And isn’t ‘ponderer’ just a nice way of saying ‘insufferably short attention span with tendencies towards daydreaming‘? I think so.
Here’s the ‘missionary’ part. I work with a global missions organization called Cru, where I lead a very specific team of performing artists whose vision is to see Christ exalted on every stage. Artists by design and missionaries by calling, our team carries forward a 50-year legacy of mobilizing musicians, songwriters and other performing artists to proclaim Christ to the nations.
I’ve travelled the world several times over as a performing musician, trainer, and raconteur. We have shared the gospel with hundreds of thousands of people in concert outreaches, and have led worship for believers and missionaries serving in the U.S. and in many countries in Asia, Europe and the Middle East where our friends and hosts risk their lives daily to proclaim the Gospel. Some of those places, I’m still surprised we got into (and out of).
None of this, though, is really about me or even about music. It’s about using whatever gifts and talents we’ve been given to make Jesus known, and to make disciples of all the nations.
All of them.
In this generation.
What you have stumbled onto here is the place where I tell stories and keep people updated about the stuff we do. And I’m glad you did, because we need your help to keep doing it!
Our work with Cru is 100% supported by our team of ministry partners – people who give financially to make our work possible. We love seeing lives changed for eternity, but we simply can’t do it without our partners in finances and prayer.
