“Seeding Prophetic Recordings Into Generations.” That’s the heart behind the new record company. And to pull off something that big, it requires a number of things:
A church-based business model that values lives as a return, not necessarily money (though we believe things should should run in the black).
A dedicated staff who believes in pastoring musical artists in their stewardship of time, talent, and treasure.
And – to make those musical recordings come to life – a recording studio.
From the very first day New Life Christian Church moved into her present home in the old movie house in Watertown, NY the Board was very clear that one of the theaters would be dedicated to this venture. And for that – and them holding to their word for over 2 years – I am extremely grateful.
Today, that recording studio is becoming a reality; we officially “broke ground” by setting the first walls this past Wednesday. And my, what a feeling. But planning obviously started over two years ago, leading to the serious design-phase beginning in March 2011.
