We had an incredible time with Rush of Fools last night at the University of Montevallo’s Palmer Auditorium. We’ve been planning this for nearly a year it was a huge success! I am so grateful for Lance’s hard work in pulling everything together. It would not have gotten done without him. I’m also grateful for the hard working volunteers from Mountain Valley and Baptist Campus Ministries who did everything from selling tickets to tearing down equipment.
We enjoyed nearly two hours of worship and heard songs from ROF’s first album and songs from their upcoming album “Wonder of the World.” The CD is coming out September 19th. I highly recommend you pick up a copy. I really enjoyed “Undo”, “We All”, and “Can’t Get Away”, “All We Ever Needed”, and their new song “Freedom.”
These guys are so talented, but I think I was more impressed with their humble, enthusiastic spirit. They weren’t concerned with accolades during their introduction, but said they wanted to serve our church and worship God. We had church at Palmer Auditorium and lives were touched. We had the privilege of praying with several people about issues they were facing in their life.
I really enjoyed talking to Wes and Kevin about their passion for addressing the terrible problem of pornography and sexual addiction. They are incredibly bold about a topic that most people shy away from. Their partnership with Freedom Begins Here is exposing a problem that is rampant inside the church. Statistics say that 50% of Christian men and 20% of Christian women are struggling with pornography and sexual addiction. Please join me in praying that these young men will have a powerful impact on the lives of the many people who listen to their music.
Most importantly, I believe we made many connections with students on campus. Our church has a huge burden for these young men and women. I pray that we can impact them in a positive way during one of the most critical times of their life. Please pray for our church as we follow up with contacts and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I’m grateful for Wes, JD, Jamie, Kevin, and Jacob and pray that God will continue to bless their ministry. Keep up the good work guys!
