Here are a few images from Encounter last night at Auburn University. Most of the staff for Grace Campus Ministries is in Hong Kong right now for Passion so lighting was a little different but it was a great worship time and my good friend Brian Johnson from Cornerstone lead with a great message straight from the heart. It was quite intense and I know Brian spoke to the students last night from the depths of his heart, it was great… something I wish I could get in the habit of doing on this blog a little more. The blogs I enjoy reading the most are ones that share with their readers, where they are walking, how they got there, and often how or what makes them stumble. Something I am going to try to do here but I have 37 years of ingrained restraint to overcome. Thanks Brian for a great message on Thursday.
Leading worship this year is Daniel Bashta from Birmingham and I have really enjoyed getting to know Daniel and the rest of the Encounter band. Daniel released his first full album last year called My Worship in Motion which is actually available for download, for free, on his website. I am old fashion as far as CD’s go I guess, I still like to have the physical disc and I would recommend getting this one if you are so inclined. If not, check out the second track called With Everything on Daniel’s site, pretty cool. One thing that engages me as a person is Daniels intensity. It’s authentic, real, and emotional, and it makes for a time of worship that is alive. If not to anyone else, it is to him. Here are a few of Daniel from last night.
Tonight I will be doing a live shoot with Martha’s Trouble at Eighth & Rail in Opelika (see Coming up this weekend) and then another debute on Saturday so watch for some images from those two coming up. I also still have several posts on Catalyst from Atlanta last week coming soon.
