First off, I would like to thank GOD for blessing me with some real amazing friends. I have had more conversations about this project over the course of the past year (June 2013 – June 2014) than I have ever had, mainly because this project isn’t just an album. The concept was fabricated over night when I heard someone (whom I forget now) mention the Romans Road. Quickly interested, I did a search online and found an overwhelming amount of resources on the subject matter. Too many to choose from and so many were not the same, most were slightly different. I wanted to change this. I wanted to create five basic steps using just scripture in Romans, and create an EP for my toddler to learn the basics of salvation and Christianity.
So Jayden, I dedicate this album to you. Clara, you were my other inspiration. I know how much you all love music and this was my opportunity to create something you can dance and sing to and learn and grow with it. A special thanks to my wife Courtney for allowing me to dedicate many conversations, a ton of time, and plenty of nights to this project.
Thank you Pastor Kevin Lane for your hospitality and your continued investment in my planning for this project. You gave me a lot of great ideas and allowed me to think and talk it through and through. Thank you Pastor Anthony for your interest in my process and for allowing me to use your sermon as the introduction to Romans. Thank you Reggie, Ryan, & Josh for actually wanting to hear my finished product.
A huge shout out and thank you to Philip McDaniel for being my paradigm partner and creative partner for every thing behind the scenes of this project. I greatly appreciate your help and assistance in creating the look of the website and business card. Our thousands of messages back and forth and image sharing made the project that much greater. I am so thankful to have a friend like you willing to poor into my passion and creativity. Thank you so much for being there for me when I needed help push this thing forward.
To all my local AnchorMEN holding it down, leading their families, keep up the hard work. Let’s keep sharing the Good News like we are called to do.
To all the leaders out there. I pray you are encouraged and blessed by this mission. Use it and share it. Let’s teach discipline and disciple disciples.
Thank you for traveling this journey with me down the path of righteousness to The Romans Road To Salvation.
