SHREDDING GUITAR RIFFS


What an exciting weekend we have had. My husband and I were able to be team leads for the powerful music conference at our home church called the Thriving Musician Summit. Over 800 musicians and technical persons from both the front and back of the house were there to learn the how to's of their craft, as they become better church leaders.
The picture is of our main worship leader at our church. Lincoln Brewster used to be a guitarist with the mainstream rocker Steve Perry of Journey fame, and now is working at Bayside and doing many tours especially for our youth. He has a wonderful testimony to share.
Lincoln did a prerelease of his newest CD Today is the Day. The CD will be released to the public Tuesday Sept. 23. As a young college friend of mine said...This guys guitar rifts are shredding.....????I don't speak rock talk too well, but I know this means really good!!
Others appearing and giving in-depth workshops were Paul Baloche, Phil Wickham, Joel Auge' and Mia Fields from Hillsong. There were 40 more there as presenters.
It was an amazing time for all of us.

Fabulous! I used to listen to Journey all the time, and of course know of Lincoln Brewster's music. He sang at a conference I attended several years ago. LUCKY you :)!

Like Ruth, I can relate for the same reason. My son's online nickname is Shredder. And yes, he plays a mean guitar! ;)
