September Music Test Active

A new Music Team Survey is open and ready for your opinion on the new music we are playing on The Journey.  Songs like Overwhelmed by Big Daddy Weave, Do Something from Matthew West and I Am from David Crowder, as well as some of our older favorites, 40 songs in all.

Click here to take the survey.

Thanks for taking the time and sharing your opinions on the music we play.  For the prize drawings this month, we've got one family four-pack of tickets to the Pirate's Cove Water Park, south of Burleson.  We'll do a random drawing from everyone who completes the survey by Monday morning, Sept. 8th at 10:00 a.m.

A Different Perspective

I was reminded again recently about how important perspective can be.  Wanda and I just returned from a couple of weeks and 5200 miles on the road, much of it driving to and from the Oregon Coast to spend time with our sons and visit friends and beautiful spots along the way. We wanted to drive through the mountains with the windows open.

When we arrived on the Oregon Coast, Wanda and I breathed deep the sixty-degree air, walked on the beach holding hands and marveled at how beautiful and tranquil it was as the fog rolled onto the beach. Our sons, who have lived there for a couple of years now, talked about the congestion from gawking tourists, high prices for food and fuel, constant chill and lack of things to do. I tried not to laugh as I thought about the difference in perspective.  I drove 2500 miles to be there and they couldn’t wait to be gone.

Paul tells us in Romans what happens today is nothing compared to the glory that will be revealed in us. I think it’s about perspective. We are on a journey and this is not our home. We are children of the King, made for eternity, not this flimsy stuff that tries to bind us to today. Where are you today? Try a new perspective.

A New Addition

Early radio experience

Early radio experience

After months of searching and interviewing several candidates, I’m excited to announce the newest full-time employee at the Journey, Danae Dolinsky-Songy, who will serve as our new program director.  Danae has several years of radio experience as a music director, as well as experience in marketing and public relations at a variety of institutions.  She has a degree in advertising and public relations, as well as a master’s degree in youth and young adult ministry.

Danae’s responsibilities will include a daily air shift, assisting with promotions and marketing, oversight and training of the student staff, music and programming and whatever else I can think of to keep her busy, which frankly won’t be too difficult.

I’m very excited she accepted our offer.  She is full of energy and is very excited to share God’s love through the Journey. The day after I offered her the position she sent me an email thanking me for offering her what she considered her dream job and she couldn’t wait to join the team.  Her first day will be Monday, August 4th. Please pray for God’s hand on all of us as we prepare for her arrival and look to the future as we expand the ministry.
