The Plan You Have For Me
Scott Bouldin Ministries
As a music reviewer, I have the privilege of listening to a lot of new music. Stuff most people won’t ever have a chance to hear, given the economic realities of music production and distribution. And there is a lot of good music out there. Godly, talented people who use their time and talents to bring the message of praise and salvation to congregations all over the country are playing every week, bringing moving praise and worship music to hundreds of thousands of people. Sometimes I get a glimpse into the ministries of these servants who may never get to play to a stadium full of screaming worshippers. When I do, I’m humbled, I’m touched and I’m reminded of my own ministry as a church musician.
Scott Bouldin, worship pastor of Kennedy Baptist Church in Lamar Baptist Association, sent an email asking if I’d be willing to give his team a critique of a new project they had recently put together. Written mostly by Bouldin and his team and recorded without a lot of the production tools in use on most of what we hear, I have to say that I was impressed. Lyrically and melodically, this is a record I loved listening to. Certainly not slick, but good solid, heartfelt worship music that I’m sure sounds even better performed live in their church.
As this is a new work, I believe the only way to get their CD is through their website at www.scottbouldinministries.org. I think you might even get it without cost. Don’t let that put you off. Give them a listen. I think you’ll like it.
