Mars Hill’s music grew out of the identical counter-cultural ethos that outlined the remainder of its ministry. Many of the church’s founding members thought Christian up to date music was too saccharine and polished for his or her tastes, and what advanced at Mars Hill mirrored the gritty and darkish sounds of the town round them. However like many different sides of the Mars Hill story, there was a lot behind the music. Usually chosen for his or her charisma and expertise, Mars Hill bands discovered that few cared in regards to the situation of their souls or the posture of their spirits.
Chad Gardner turned a worship chief later within the church’s historical past, having grown up listening to the church’s music. His eventual determination to depart would imply sacrificing group and mental property rights over his band’s contributions to the ministry. Some band members, broken by varied religious abuses, would depart the religion altogether.
On this bonus episode of The Rise and Fall of Mars Hill, host Mike Cosper sits down with Chad Gardner, worship chief at Mars Hill, to listen to the onerous and delightful tales of the music that outlined the group. Peek backstage for a glimpse of what worship management meant on this different church tradition, and listen to tales behind a few of King’s Kaleidescope’s albums. Lastly, discover out why Chad instructed us, “I by no means needed to do a duet with Mark.”
