The Praise Factory Music

Words set to music have an amazing way of sticking with us. And what better use for music than as a vehicle of remembering and reciting great truths about God!

For this reason, two friends and I set out on the great task of putting the sixteen Praise Factory Big Questions and over 150 Scripture Verses to music, to go with the curriculum hymns and praise songs. I was hoping for something catchy, yet appropriate (if you remember the old GT and the Halo Express Scripture CDs, you will know what I had in mind.)…and something free to reproduce (for non-commercial, educational purposes) so that it could be freely shared with the curriculum—no royalties or licenses attached!

God kindly gave me grace to adapt the words and write the new music. God kindly gave two members of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Diane Davis (vocalist) and Jennifer Jackson (pianist), the talent to take my musical beginnings and transform them into something special. What a feast of Scripture we had on various Saturdays from September, 2008 to February, 2009 in the worship hall of Capitol Hill Baptist Church, with Greg Brown, one of our Deacons of Sound, patiently and cheerfully helping us record! A lot of Scripture, a lot of worship and a lot of fun!

Yes, that’s right, these are not studio recordings. You’ll notice that. This was the best the budget and our fledging attempts could afford. We are looking forward to “Take 2” of studio standard recordings and making them available to you in the future.

Nonetheless, I think you will find the songs useful and enjoyable--though humble--for use with the curriculum and with families at home. We know our teachers and families have here at CHBC.

Soli Deo Gloria!
