In a career that spans 30 years, Michael Card has recorded over 31 albums, authored or co-authored over 24 books, hosted a radio program, and written for a wide range of magazines. While he has penned such favorites as “El Shaddai”, “Love Crucified Arose”, and “Emmanuel,” He never imagined selling more than 4 million albums or writing over 19 #1 hits. The popularity of his work seemed a stark contrast to his goal in life, to simply and quietly teach the Bible.
Although music provided him the opportunity to share insight gained through extensive research, writing songs alone limited what he felt called to share. Card would frequently agonize over having to condense the vast depth and richness of scripture into a three-minute song. And so he fell, quite naturally, into the field of book writing where he has garnered numerous awards.
Korean Children's Choir (with evangelist Billy Kim)
Sunday, August 4 / 7pm - FREE ADMISSION
In 1950, after traveling extensively in China and Korea as an evangelist, Dr. Bob Pierce started World Vision as a way for Americans to respond to the needs of countless widows, orphans and vulnerable children. In 1960, in the aftermath of the Korean War, Dr. Pierce brought a group of Korean orphans to the United States to sing in churches and public venues in order to raise awareness to the plight of children. World Vision’s Korea Children’s Choir was the voice for thousands of neglected children who were served through the ministry of World Vision in those early years. The choir toured the U.S. on numerous occasions from 1960 to the 1980s, appearing at Carnegie Hall, the White House and The Ed Sullivan Show. Today choir members are no longer selected from orphanages but among mainstream, talented youth who continue to carry on the choir’s original mission: to be a voice for the voiceless.

Andrew Peterson has earned a place as one of Christian music’s most respected singer/songwriters, crafting music that splits the difference between groundbreaking folk-rock band Caedmon’s Call and the late, great Rich Mullins. His string of artistically excellent records began with the top 10 radio single “Nothing To Say,” and includes the lush Love & Thunder, Easter-themed Resurrection Letters, Vol. 2, and his newest masterwork Counting Stars, which took the number one spot on the iTunes Christian chart on its release. He tours the globe with his musical cohorts the Captains Courageous, a.k.a. pianist/producer Ben Shive and guitarist Andy Gullahorn. But music is only part of Peterson’s artistry: he’s published three books, most recently launching a Christy Award-winning series of young adult fantasy novels called The Wingfeather Saga, inspired by Tolkien, Lewis, and Peterson’s own three children. Peterson’s artistic successes may be surpassed by his skill in connecting people, embodied in the Rabbit Room online community (RabbitRoom.com), which gathers contributions from authors, songwriters, and pastors, encouraging creativity and referencing its ultimate source. The thread of community, also a theme of Counting Stars, imbues his beloved annual Christmas show, Behold The Lamb Of God, a long-running multi-artist tour based on Peterson’s original Christmas album of the same name.

Tyler, TX, native Shaun Groves began his relationship with Christ during the sixth grade. His new-found faith led Groves to pursue music with passion and excellency. The drive and intensity he devoted reaped immediate results, with saxophone-playing Groves moving from the last chair to the first chair in the school band in merely a few months time. When college rolled around, Groves attended Baylor University on a full private music scholarship. It was during college that Groves met his wife, whom he credits for educating him on popular music. After graduating with a bachelor's degree in music composition, he moved to Nashville, TN, hoping to make his mark as a songwriter. Groves soon found a job as what he dubs "a tape copy guy" at Brentwood/Benson Publishing. The short-lived career move landed him a development deal with the publishing company and a recording contract with Rocketown Records in 2000. Groves' debut album, Invitation to Eavesdrop, was released in the summer of 2001.
