**WINNERS: (Blog) Michael Bryce Jr., Troy Grover & Javier Rodriguez (Twitter) @r8chelliz & @adamwaynewhite
I’m VERY excited about this new record! John Mark McMillan is one of the more poetic songwriters I’ve heard in the Christian music world. You may not think you know him, but there is a good chance you do. John Mark wrote the brilliantly crafted song ‘How He Loves’ that the David Crowder Band recently covered. Crowder’s version of the song has been all over the radio as of late and churches around the globe are singing the song regularly in their gatherings. Make no mistake that’s a great song but it’s only one of MANY that this guy has written. This record will prove that to you, I’m convinced!
His label, Integrity Record, has given me 5 copies of his brand new record, just released today, to give-away to YOU! I’ll be giving 3 of them away right here on my Blog and 2 of them through Twitter.
It’s pretty simple to ENTER TO WIN! Here’s what you need to do:
Comment: Simply leave a comment on this blog post with your Name, City and State and something random about yourself. Also, make sure to put in the best email for me to reach you as you fill out the comment field. I’ll need to email you if you win.

I just wanted to take a second to remind you how blessed I am to have Ryan & Danielle Axtell as friends of mine. I’ve been so honored to have been able to walk alongside Ryan during these past months as God has given and taken away with the loss of their first child. Ryan has never ceased to amaze me with his capacity to follow Jesus into ‘This Valley’. He has been relentless to dig in to find out how God could use this tragedy for His glory. Ryan and Danielle have traversed this trial with honor, integrity, humility, authenticity and yet anchored in the hope we have in Jesus. I only hope I can do my ‘valley’ with that level of respect and honor!
That being said, I could think of no greater thing than for all of us to come out Thursday night, April 15th 2010, to support Ryan and Danielle with the release of ‘This Valley’ his brand new CD. Out of ‘This Valley’ birthed songs rooted in the word and telling the God story in their lives. Ryan has worked vigorously on this project and the album sounds AWESOME!! The release is tomorrow night at 7pm in the auditorium at Cornerstone Chandler. Nyke our Camber Pastor will be interviewing Ryan about the still birth of their first child and all that has come with this hard season for he and Danielle. It will be a powerful time to share in music, story and community. Bring your family and friends to come enjoy this night!
If you can’t make it out to Arizona for the show, but, want to purchase his new Album CLICK HERE!!
My amazing Promise designed all the artwork for Ryan. I think she did a KILLER job and, yes, I am totally biased! 🙂

I’ve recently come to love a song called Your Love Never Fails. It’s such a solid reminder of what the Bible proclaims to us about Gods love. These are some of they lyrics I’m just loving to lead right now. You can catch a great version of this song on Jesus Cultures worship album called Your Love Never Fails.
This video has a sweet little part in it from this past weekend. I got in a pinch over the weekend and called in a favor from an old friend to come play guitar. My friend Mike Eldred is a blues king and can shred him some leads. He’s also the Director of Custom Guitars at Fender, small fish. HA. This past weekend was no exception to his shredding and at the 3rd service during Your Love Never Fails I couldn’t hold back the WOW. HAHA. The guy can just shred and we got lost in it for a minute. We’ve got some AMAZING players here at Cornerstone and they bring exactly what we need every week, but Mike just has this Blues shredding capacity that we really don’t use week to week. So…enjoy his serious shredding and this awesome tune.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the song too!!! Have you heard this tune? Do you like it? Not?

Today, my good friend Carlos Whittaker’s EP is available for your download and listening pleasure. Carlos, Heather and their family have quickly become some great friends of mine and Promise. We are so excited for Carlos in this new adventure of taking his music to the streets. He’s got an amazing heart for God and people. I think you’re really going to enjoy this worship project. The songs have singable melodies and remind us of Gods love for us and propel the listener to love God more!
At the end of the day when you meet Lil’ Los (Losiah) you won’t be able to resist dowloading Carlos’ new EP. Knowing he’s training this little guy up to know and follow Jesus…well…it’s worth every dollar of the download! Go get the EP on iTunes or wherever and support this amazing new artist and a friend of mine!
