some unlikely press for The Gap Theory…

artistry and excellence
The Gap Theory, the band I tour the world with occasionally, just got some unexpected love from WordPress.COM and WordPress.ORG. Wordpress is a pretty major web hosting platform, and thousands of blogs and websites are hosted on it. They are showcasing our website as an example of an artists' page that uses their services. Check out WordPress.COM's feature here. (Scroll down to see where we're showcased.) I have no idea why they put us in the company of hip-hop artists like Snoop and XZibit, since we're sort of a rock band, but hey - we'll take whatever attention we can get!

The Gap Theory – Indian Tour Recap

artistry and excellence, missions and ministry
Well, The Gap Theory's 2012 India tour is in the books. Pretty sure none of us are operating on the proper time zone yet... but here's the recap: What we did: 15 full-length concerts where we shared the gospel clearly (and, of course, rocked like a proverbial hurricane) 1 all-day music and ministry training seminar 6 ‘drop-in’ partial performance appearances (anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour) 1 outreach concert started, but cancelled after 2 songs due to rain (had to strike the stage in a downpour) What it did to us: Miles travelled = ~20000 (includes air and road miles in-country) Kilometers travelled (since India is all metric and stuff): ~32000 % of those miles / kilometers that were bumpy, cramped, and hot: 100 Nights spent sleeping in airports:…

The Gap Theory – 2012 India Tour

artistry and excellence, missions and ministry
For September, I'm out on tour with The Gap Theory. We're currently in Chennai, India and we'll be here pretty much all month. Check the link above for our website for updates. So far, we've already played a full show at a college, and seen 80 or so people make decisions to start a relationship with Christ. We also did a 1-day training seminar about using music in ministry. We led classes on our philosophy of ministry, using music to share the gospel, personal stories, and what means to pursue excellence as an artist for God's glory. We're still trying to get on the right time zone... we're all really tired, but grateful for safe travel and for how well our hosts are taking care of us. We have 13…

How do you eat an (Indian) elephant?

missions and ministry
One bite at a time, or so the parable goes - but you have to get yourself to India to do it. Last fall, I went on tour in India with a rock band called The Gap Theory. We performed for thousands of people and shared the gospel, and several hundred indicated that they began a relationship with Christ. India is 80% Hindu, 15% Muslim, and maybe 3% Christian, so there is a never-ending need for sharing the gospel. The ministries in India were so happy with our work that they have asked us to do it again - so we're going back this September! [singlepic id=42 w=208 h=168 float=right] We are excited to go, but there is a TON to do. There are Visas to apply for. Rehearsal plans to…
