about

the Scripture project started as a way to encourage the memorization of Scripture at Pathfinder Church. It was simple: a pastor would choose a verse, and I would write a little tune for the church to sing, with the goal of it being catchy, and sometimes even a little annoying. Something that would get stuck in your head for hours. The end result? Getting the Word of God into peoples' heads and hearts. All of these songs are taken directly from Scripture, staying faithful to the text as much as possible. The translations used are the New International Version and the New Living Translation.

The one song on this album that is not taken from Scripture is 'pray the day.' These words were penned by Pathfinder Church's senior pastor, Greg Wood. These words are a short prayer, a great way to begin each day, by reminding ourselves that there's a bigger purpose for our lives than our own selfish desires.

This album is a product of 2014, of my life, my spiritual journey, and my artistic ideas of 2014. The compositional style, arrangements, and production may or may not fit the commercial music industry's trends for 2014, and that's fine with me.
