Very encouraging signs of life. This movement of mercy is essential for authentic worship (Isaiah 58) and is catching fire at the local church level. May God be pleased to increase their number. Chuck Burge - www.HarmonyBlog.org.

40 YEARS IN CCM

I've worked for Sparrow and others, managed some of the top names in christian music over almost 40 years. CT's "some earning stipends" made me laugh. These tours get mega corp. sponsorship $$ from the organizations involved. It's all marketing and all business with the artist handlers. CCM was pure in the 70's and has since become polluted with very mediocre talent who would never make it in the real world. CT, you could do a better job of investigating.
