When I was at The Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary at Andrews University, I had the privilege of being a part of a group of individuals that created and began a worship known as FUSION. It was at FUSION and through the worship direction of my good friend Dilys Brooks that I began to learn and appreciate Gospel Music. I then did my evangelistic field school at Kansas Ave an African-American Church in Riverside, CA., and my love of Gospel Music fully blossomed. So I thought on this Sabbath evening I would share one of the songs I fell in love with during that time, “Total Praise” by one of my favorite Gospel Singers, Donnie McClurkin.
My name is Chad Stuart, and I'm a preacher. Inevitably, I spend a lot of time speaking from “inside” the pulpit, however, this blog reflects thoughts I have beyond, or “outside” the pulpit. It represents my own thoughts on religion, spirituality, the Bible, family, leadership, church growth, and some random other stuff.
