Kingdom Man Round 2

I'm reading Kingdom Man by Tony Evans for the second time this year. This is nothing I typically do, but the book has already had a profound impact on my life and walk with the Lord that I chose to give it a rare Round 2 for the year.

Kingdom Man is not an average read, it is a call to action.

Looking to God's Word, Kingdom Man ignites a response to be more responsible, more courageous, more accountable, more loving, more watchful, and wholeheartedly dedicated to Christ.

The book builds on Scriptures to show what a Kingdom Man looks like, how he conducts himself, what God says about men, and why biblical manhood is in dire necessity today.

Evans consistently writes about rightful alignment in God's Word throughout the book. This passage struck a chord in me and I hope it does the same for you, especially for the fellas:

"Men, we serve in a kingdom. God is our King. Christ is our head, our leader. And He has asked us to stand fast. He has asked us to give our undivided allegiance to Christ's command through His headship over our lives, regardless of the cost. It is our responsibility as men to see to it that those under our care- those who depend on us and those within our realm of influence- have every opportunity possible for protection, provision, and safety. If we don't give that to them, not only will they end up suffering, but others will suffer, too."

Men, it's time we step up and fulfill our calling to protect, serve, and be responsible for what happens in our communities, families, churches, and everywhere else where we have impact.

As a musician, everything equals a song.

In that respect, two songs come to mind as I go through Round 2 of Kingdom Man. I hope they are a blessing to you.

The Synth Sounds

I am excited to share that my first jazz project is nearing completion. (Also why this is my first post this month).

Other than piano, you can definitely expect to hear sounds of 1980's and 1990's-era synthesizers filtered throughout the upcoming album.

I admire the newer sounds we have today, but none of them quite replicate the original, synth-led sounds of 80's and 90's music.

In my opinion, 80's and 90's sounds present the perfect crossover of analog and digital mixes that were limitless in use and expression.

It is no wonder that modern synthesizers today still draw inspiration from 80's and 90's technology. It was simply some of the most innovative audio machinery ever created.

No shame here. Expect 80's and 90's vibes to come your way in my upcoming project.

Stay Tuned!!!

CFC Youth Day

CFC Youth Day was nothing short of remarkable.

Children, teenagers, young adults (my generation) sang, danced, praised, and worshiped God with passion, love, joy, energy, and sincerity.

We led, both, the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services and the LORD ministered through us in His own powerful way.

I am very grateful to have preached at the 10:00 AM service. (Came from 2 Timothy 1:7).

Something amazing happens when we move ourselves out of the way and allow the LORD to communicate His Word through us. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And when you summarize the meaning He brings to life, you realize that all the of the glory belongs to Him.

The reality of God's presence gives life, and everything we involve ourselves in, brand new meaning.

God's awesomeness was displayed in a monumental way today. A flame was kindled in our youth and the church as a whole.

Today was special.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make today such a great success, you know who you are!



Last night, the very last night of our NYC vacation, my parents and I attended a jazz show at the legendary Birdland.

GRAMMY nominated jazz vocalist Karrin Allyson was in the house.

Before I go any further, I must give kudos to Allyson and her band consisting of Miro Sprague (piano & Rhodes), Jeff Johnson (upright & electric bass), and Jerome Jennings (drums). They were great!

Allyson's clear voice and the band's musical prowess made for a top-quality performance. There is no room to doubt: everyone on the stage last night were professionals.

Being at Birdland is an experience, if anything, because of its rich history in providing a venue in entertainment-rich Manhattan for jazz artists and musicians.

This is the same Birdland that George Shearing wrote "Lullabye of Birdland" about and artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Dexter Gordon, Lionel Hampton, Sarah Vaughan, Quincy Jones, Chaka Khan, Amy Winehouse, Mel Torme, Erroll Garner, and Nikki Yanofsky later sang …
