IMAGE Speaker Replacement Project Update
Friday, 27 March 2015 - Chris Reed

We've received over $6,300 towards our speaker replacement project so far, which is enough to complete the first phase of the project!With these funds, we've purchased 2 subwoofers and 4 main speakers.  Each of our fulltime teams will begin using 2 of the new mains and 1 subwoofer starting with their upcoming Spring tour.  Audiences can look forward to a much gentler / less "harsh" sound, broader frequency spectrum, and lower visual...

Tuesday, 24 March 2015 - Patty Lin

It's been a joy to tour the last few months and meet so many people with whom we've had the opportunity to fellowship!As we each head our separate ways for a season of rest and rejuvenation, our most popular question will certainly be "how was Winter Tour?"It can be overwhelming to convey all we've experienced with people who weren't with us each step of the way, so at our last team meeting we worked through a few initial processing...

IMAGE The Last Days
Monday, 23 March 2015 - Holly Hassman

As we near the end of Winter Tour, I’ve been thinking back on all that has happened in the past 10 weeks. It’s overwhelming to try to process all the experiences we’ve had and the things God has been teaching me through them all.   I’m looking forward to break in hopes of having some time to seclude myself and do some writing/processing in an attempt to make sense of it all. It’s tempting to want to spend all of my Easter break...

Friday, 20 March 2015 - Matt Kelley

Hey everyone!We are down to our last few days of winter tour.  It has been a fantastic tour, but looking back, I noticed that there were a few times when I felt that tour was getting quite monotonous.  I remember thinking, “Oh, I’ve been in similar situations as this.  I’ve been there and done that.  I don’t have to try as hard.”This, my friends, is what our team calls “coasting.”  It’s not necessarily...

The End of Ourselves
Thursday, 19 March 2015 - Keilah Quimby

This past Monday marked the beginning of our final week of tour, and a part of me simply can’t believe it. It feels like just yesterday that we all arrived at the ministry as full-timers, ready for training, but maybe not completely ready to brave the road and tour life. Yet here we are, on the final leg of our longest tour; the adventures we’ve had are countless, and along the way I’ve learned an incredible amount of things about my...

Responding to a Heavy Reality
Monday, 16 March 2015 - Hannah Olson

Today we had a team devo that I was pretty convicted by. I was overwhelmed by the relevance it had in this last week of touring arriving. I'm tired and pretty exhausted. I was praying that the Lord would send me some restoration and it seemed to come in the form of conviction. We talked through Proverbs 29 and I want to share the pieces that struck me.   Proverbs 29:25 "The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from...

The Day of Atonement
Monday, 16 March 2015 - Wesley Lin

Hello from Elizabeth, Colorado! This past tour, our team has met incredible people, interacted with great ministries, and had unforgettable experiences and adventures overall. Despite all this, diligently reading through the Bible (well, half of it so far) has been my biggest personal highlight of Winter Tour. I cannot thank my teammates enough for keeping me accountable for this practice - it has been a invaluable blessing to my life and to my...

Saturday, 14 March 2015 - Lena Kvigne

     Hi from the road. It has been a long couple of weeks but as I look back on them I realize the diversity of the people we have met. Last week we played at a school in Idaho with elementary and high school students. They were amazing; children full of faith and freedom to worship. We had a great time dancing and singing with them. After three days at that small Christian school we played at the largest prison in Oregon. This...

Hey everyone! We're officially back in the US after an awesome two weeks or so in Canada. We've been with Matt's family in Wilmington, Delaware, playing at a Sunday Breakfast Mission, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Brandywine Valley Baptist Church, and we're partnered with Wilmington Christian School for the whole week! It's been busy, but a huge blessing for us to be in one spot for such an extended period of time and get to build...

IMAGE Sharing the Gospel Everyday
Wednesday, 11 March 2015 - Kelvin Woo

This past week, I got to sit in on a small group and were discussing how to intentionally live their lives for the sake of the gospel everywhere they were. It pulled me into the days that I was working before I joined CTI and was reminded of the challenges of sharing the gospel in the work place.  I realized that a lot of the stuff our team has been doing on the road has made it easy for us as a team to share the gospel. I mean, everything...

Nothing to do with us, everything to do with Christ
Monday, 09 March 2015 - Joey Nutting

I recently read a section from Oswald Chamber’s devotional My Utmost for His Highest. The main idea was centered around this question, “Am I of any use to God?”    I’ve caught myself asking this question several times this tour. I look inwardly at my abilities and gifts or lack thereof and compare them to others, and then get discouraged and insecure or prideful. I then think to myself, “oh, look at my ability to do this or...

Thursday, 05 March 2015 - Kasey Manning

Hey-Ho, we're in Idaho! This week we are working with Greenleaf Christian Academy and playing for their Elementary, Middle School, and High School chapels. I've personally been encouraged by our time with the elementary school kids. They are SO cute! This morning, Kelvin gave a message on 2 Corinthians 4:7; "But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us." He spoke to the kids about how...

Tuesday, 03 March 2015 - Holly Hassman

Our team has spent the past ten days in the Greater Toronto Area playing for churches and schools and meeting so many fabulous hosts. We recently had the privilege to lead a worship seminar at Toronto Jaffray Alliance Church in Scarborough, ON, for current and future church worship team members.    I was tasked with leading an opening discussion of some of the underlying questions about worship that our ministry staff have challenged...
