My Favourite Things: Worship Edition VOLUME II

This Sunday, Rob is bringing a message about one of his favourite things from scripture - the story of Abraham. With that in mind, I thought it would be very appropriate to have Rob curate his personal Top 10 list of influential Christian music through his life. He is, after all, our Creative Ministries Director so what could be more appropriate?

This is a great list... other than maybe Stryper. LOL! I'll admit they were influential but that's as far as I'll go with that. Enjoy this list - be inspired - revisit some great music that has shaped our faith. What are you listening to that builds you up and points you to Christ? We'd love to hear about it!

Rob's Top 10 Most Influential Albums:

  1. Michale W. Smith - "Big Picture"

  2. Carman - "Radically Saved"

  3. Stryper - "In God We Trust"

  4. Steven Curtis Chapman - "The Great Adventure"

  5. DC Talk - "Jesus Freak"

  6. Delirious - "Glo"

  7. David Crowder Band - "Illuminate"

  8. Lincoln Brewster - "Amazed"

  9. Robbie Seay Band - "Give Yourself Away"

  10. NEEDTOBREATHE - "The Outsiders"

You're welcome for the new playlists. :)

See you Sunday,
Pastor Tracy

My Favourite Things: Worship Edition (you're welcome)

As you likely know, music is a pretty important part of my life. Growing up my family was always listening to and singing along to something. And as much as I loved the stuff on the radio (New Kids on the Block, MC Hammer, C&C Music Factory), I always connected so deeply with music that talked about Jesus. It wasn't as cool as the stuff on the radio ('Everybody dance now!") but even as a small kid I could tell that songs about God were something entirely different and they got into my soul.

These days there is so much great Jesus-focused music out there so no matter whether you're a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll you can find something you'll like. But, since this summer is all about sharing some of our favourite things, here are some of the albums that have had a huge impact on my spiritual life through the years.

By the way, this list was painful to curate. I feel guilty about all that I've left out. If you're reading this on our blog or FB page, leave a comment with your favourites and maybe more of the worthy songs will have a chance to get an honourable mention.

  1. Fred Hammond - "Pages of Life - Chapter II (Live)"

  2. DC Talk - "Free At Last"

  3. Gaither Vocal Band - "A Few Good Men"

  4. Lakewood Live - "We Speak to Nations"

  5. Hillsong Music - "Shout to the Lord"

  6. Elevation Worship - "Here as in Heaven"

  7. Bryan & Katie Torwalt - "Champion"

  8. Charity Gayle - "Lord You Are My Song"

  9. Ron Kenoly - "Lift Him Up (Live)"

  10. Chris McClarney - "Everything and Nothing Less"

I encourage you to find music that encourages your soul and speaks the Word. I can't tell you how many times God has spoken to my heart as I've listened to music that honours Him. Try out something new this summer!

PS - Rob and I were a part of making an album 12 years ago. We had a hand in writing a bunch of these tracks. Check it out if you're interested.
