YOU ARE EXALTED on ITUNES: Please Help!!!!

We are finally putting the whole project on Itunes! (RE-MASTERED; which means even better sound quality for the casual listener) But before we put the whole project out (cause it’s not all finished yet) we thought we would start with just “You Are Exalted” since it is being marketed through the Worship Leader Magazine Song Discovery Disc.

SO Can you PLEASE help us and support this by doing 1 or all of these?:

1- Support by buying the song You Are Exalted on Itunes…only .99:)
2- give it a 5 star rating (if you like it) NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
3-Write a pleasant review (again, if you like it) NO PURCHASE NECESSARY
4-Help spread the word to your friends, churches, worship leaders, etc.
5-Help spread it through the web via, facebook, email, websites, etc

we so appreciate your support! and please let us know how we can support you in your ministries and your personal efforts. That is kingdom…helping each other to accomplish and reach the God-given goals in our lives.

Love you all!



“The Question” appears on TBN Praise the Lord show.

Yes, “The Question” from the Third Culture Worship Project made it’s debut on TBN Praise the Lord Show last night (4/25/11). Stephen and Lori Ward who are worship pastors at RWOC in South Carolina sang it wonderfully! They are also some great folks that you can check out and support as well with some great CD’s and projects out. Their church is about 16,000 folks i think and pastored by Ron Carpenter.

Worship Leader Magazine MAY 2011

Check out this May’s edition of Worship Leader Magazine. I am featured in the section called “Worship Radar” on page 58. It is a very nice write up. It’s a great honor to be there!!! Also if you look on the CD called “Song Discovery” you will see that “You Are Exalted” is on their 92 edition of song discovery which is a nationally released CD to be a resource of new songs that they recommend for worship leaders and churches to use in their worship service. This is huge honor as well and we are so grateful to the Lord for opening up some of these avenues.

They also did a great review on the “Third Culture Worship” project. here is the link so you can check it out and spread the word. I was extremely grateful for this review! I felt so honored that Israel Houghton would be mentioned anywhere near my name for any reason at all..hahaha..:)

Please help us get the word out! 🙂 CLICK THE PIC BELOW TO READ THE REVIEW!!!

Just wanted to give you all an update!

love you all!


Hello 2011 and San Jose!!!

Well…it has been a crazy turn of the new year(2011) for us. We have been so busy we haven’t been able to get caught up with updates and such. It took everything we had just to get familiar with the new area, new jobs, new home, new church, and a new community. But we have fully transitioned from SoCal to NorCal now and can finally take a little breath. My wife and I miss family, friends, and church but we are assured that this is where God wants us right now. We have begun serving Cathedral of Faith as the worship pastors here in San Jose, CA. And we couldn’t feel more blessed and favored as we do right now. God’s blessings and approval are all around us and we are eternally grateful! We are looking forward to great things here in the near future.

Some great things happening now and in the near future:

1) The Cathedral of Faith School of Worship is up and running! We have already begun training your worship leaders to help raise up a new generation of Kingdom movers for the Bay area. Praise God!!! We are believing God for great things as we pour into the next generation. I believe strongly that we as leaders, need to be about SOWing seeds for the next generation so they can be empowered to do the same!.

2) The Third Culture Worship Project is being Re-released, Re-designed, and Re-mastered. And this time it will hit the digital word on itunes in June 2011. We have also added an extra track with Gospel legend Keith Staten (formally of Commissioned) making an appearance! I’m super excited about this one. Keith has been a HUGE influence on my life and journey of leading worship. This was a dream come true to me.Hope you all enjoy at as well:)

3) Also, the NEW Third Culture Worship album is about half way finished and we look to have it done and ready for release by the new year! Excited about some of these new songs too.

4) Also, I will write about this in a later post but, Worship Leader Magazine has selected “You Are Exalted” to be included in the 92 edition of Song Discovery!!! What an unexpected blessing and huge honor this is for someone like me:) Never thought something like this would happen but man am I extremely grateful and humbled by this. I think they are also planning to do a feature in the section called “Worship Radar” on us too. I will fill you all in more when I know.

So…that’s a quick update on things after a long silence for a while. Our life has been a whirlwind since late October of 2010. But now I hope to be back with regular updates and blogs.

SO grateful for all of you and your continued love and support of us and the project.
