That full-time my vocation was traveling around with three other amazing guys leading worship; we did all kinds of camps, conferences, we did some events that were, I don’t know, cool to be able to be a part of.
And then, at the same time, we did a lot of little events. I always joke that we would one night be opening for a big band and the next day be playing at a gazebo for my mom and her friends.

So it was. It was the full spectrum.
And, you know, the, the, I don’t know if it’s a moment, I think it may be a series of moments, but for me, and this is the thing that I carry forward, is like, I felt like I got this.
Uncommon, unique privilege of being able to see all these different churches, all these different expressions of the kingdom of God from rural Vermont to suburban Boston, I mean even beyond New England, but especially in the Northeast.
I don’t know if anybody else has had the privilege that I’ve had to be able to go visit so many churches and meet so many leaders and pastors who serve in obscurity.
Many of them will never; they’re not going to be on Christianity Today or maybe never on a podcast.”

“And when you solve that problem, you create this gift of synergy between a melody and a lyric and an idea and an emotion and a group of people all coming together.

And obviously, in corporate worship, we’re doing that in a way that allows the people of God to come around these ideas and music.
It’s appropriate that we’re recording this on Reformation Day, but Martin Luther said that next to the word of God, music has the highest praise.”

Chris LaFreniere

 From an early age, Chris LaFreniere became interested in the written word, as well as finding his voice. He was quite regularly told by teachers, both in a positive way as well as a negative way, that his style of writing was akin to the way he thought. In one encounter with a teacher, she advised him that he should go into journalism because she believed he would do well.

Chris has been writing for close to a decade now, starting off as simply a way to get his views and opinions out via a blog, which over time has morphed into a more polished style as well as a new arena. One of which some individuals have referred to as “citizen journalism.” Writing is a passion for Chris and a place where he truly believes he’s found his voice. He also presently works as a copywriter.
