And Can it Be That I Should Gain?

"If we seem out of control or act like fanatics, it is for God. But if we act in a coherent and reasonable way, it is for you.
You see, the controlling Force in our lives is the Love of Christ - and our confession is this:
One died for all - therefore, all have died. He died for us so that we will all Live, not for ourselves, but for Him who died and rose from the dead.
Because of all that God has done, we now have a new perspective. We used to show regard for people based on worldly standards and interests.
No longer.
We used to think of Christ the same way.
No longer.
Therefore, if anyone is united with Christ, that person is a new creation. The old life is gone - and see - a new Life has begun!
All of this is a gift from our Creator God, who has pursued us and brought us into a restored and healthy relationship with Him through Christ. And He has given us the same mission - the ministry of reconciliation, to bring others back to Him.
It is central to our Gospel that God was in Christ making things right between Himself and the world. This means He does not hold their sins against them. But it also means He charges us to proclaim the Message that heals and restores our broken relationships with God and each other." ~ 2 Corinthians 5:13-19

History

Born into a family of Gospel singers & musicians in South Bend, Indiana, David began singing & playing the piano as a small child.
In the 1970's, his musical style was shaped by the acoustic rock artists of the time - and in the 1980's David played the local nightclub circuit as keyboardist/singer with the band Justus.
But God comes in places unlooked for - unexpectedly.
After committing himself to the work of the Gospel, he served for three years as Praise & Worship Leader at a local church.
Now, David & his wife Debbie have committed themselves to sharing the Gospel of the life changing Power & Love of Jesus Christ, through this music ministry, based in Elkhart, Indiana.
