Fuel Last Night


So last night was our first ever, for our Student Ministries, to attempt to record and film a live worship experience, of what we do here at Saddleback Church. Our 1st goal in this was just to HONOR God, in worship, through music and art with our Hearts!!! Our 2nd goal in all this, was hopefully to encourage our community in how students can lead worship, if they have the right heart for it. 3rd was just to celebrate how awesome God was/is and to celebrate how He has created "Purpose" in our lives.

We are hoping sometime in February for the CD to come out, and for the DVD to be released in May or something like that, we are not sure on that. Matty of whooinstenthemoose films, is a student, who is a genius for only being 15, will be making the DVD. You should check out some of the videos he has created as a 14-15 year old.

Can i be honest about something. Its funny to look at the picture and to think about this night, because its so easy to want to compare it to other worship leading churches around the world. Here is the thing, i don't care, i think what we do with our students, in allowing them to lead, sing, and just worship, GOD loves it, why because it Honors Him. Not everyone can make a CD or DVD, who cares, that ain't the end result, bringing worship and honor to God is what the end result is, however, and in essence should never end. Some friends were asking, is it going to be like HILLSONG United? NO!!! They have been doing it for way longer then we have in this realm and we shouldn't be HILLSONG UNITED, we should be us, student ministries of Saddleback. Its the best that we can do with what God has entrusted with. Don't get me wrong, we love Hillsong United, i mean 4 of the songs were Hillsong United songs, why because they are awesome and they lead in the way of encouraging writing songs, expressing with passion through song, being undignified, making DVD's, and so on.

Anyways, i feel like an older brother, who is just proud of all my little brothers and sisters who participated in FUEL!!! It was awesome and encouraging. I love our students, awesome hearts!!!!

Taff...our students wouldn't have been there, and wouldn't have been prepaired if it wasn't for your incredible leadership and encouragment. Thank you for breathing new life into the worship for students at Saddleback. Love you and I'm so proud of you and this generation of kids you've helped grow.
