All that I can say is wow. Your voice was very powerful, and I greatly enjoyed all of the worship that we had. The week wouldn’t have been as good with out your band there. Truthfully, I just looked up the original versions of all the songs we had, but didn’t like them as much as when you covered them at FUGE. You are a very talented musician and God bless you as you continue in your music career.
OMG~ Your voice is very powerful and this past week at Centrifuge has changeed my life incredibly!! I got saved and if you wouldnt have asked us to step out of our comfort zones, I would be the same person I was this time last week!!
~ Thankyou and God Bless
Such an amazing week! I have much to study as a result! I have to thank you guys for allowing God to use you like you do. I had to share that I’m really glad you study the word. The way you explained God’s love resonated with me like nothing else ever has. I also appreciate how much you obviously care about our youth and the condition of their hearts!
Thanks so much for leading worship during this powerful week at Ridgecrest. You really helped change many lives at camp. I know God will to continue to use you in many ways at church camps and evemts to bring a new generation of Christ into this world. Thanks again and awesome job!

Thank you so much for asking us to step out of our comfort zones on the last night of worship. It made an impact in my life to let go and use all I had within me to worship God. you are truly an awesome man of God and a great worship leader. Thanks so much.
First off ur the MAN! I love your voice and the way you lead worship and just want to thank you for an amazing week and Thank you for making us to step out of our comfort zone. It truly made Worship a different and awesome experience. Thanks again your awesome and continue to do what you do.
you have touched so many lifes with your music! i loved all of it! and i will never forget it! i loved the part when u were like whoever is ls yall stay at ur seat and whoever is quiet come foward. You voice is powerful. thanks for being at centrafuge!
Going into my final year of camp I was looking forward with great expectancy to worship. When I heard you were going to lead us each night I knew that this would be a camp in surrender to the glory of God. Unfortunately I became increasingly frustrated with a room of 1,500 people not in the same mindset. So I began to pray. I prayed that God would break the barriers. Whether they be the mentality that camp is all about “fun”, that people will judge you if you worship publicly, or that sitting in your seat isn’t worship at all. Finally, the night came when God moved over the campus in such a way that it was no longer happiness in the rhythm but rather joy in the Lord.
Thank you for your sacrifice. For your week with frustrating, immature, crazy teenagers. We needed the wake up call, but most of all we needed a defining moment. Those are the kind of moments that change lives.
Being a youth minister I prayed hard the weeks and months coming into FUGE for Gods power to be felt throughout the week. You being so open to let God use you in whatever way necessary allowed the spirit to come into FUGE this week. Thank you for the great music, you have an amazing gift. Thank you for challenging us Thursday night. You helped my group to break out of their comfort zones and let God work in them. I pray the Lord bless you richly. This is going to be a week not soon forgotten.

First, I want to thank you for your ministry. I can see that you really have a true heart for worship.
I really want to thank you for what you said at Thursday night’s Bible study time when you challenged everyone to be quiet and to take that time seriously and to move out of our comfort zone. I agree that we are a generation of clappers and not movers. We really do need to reevaluate the way that we worship. I can tell you that I am normally bouncy and loud during worship and that night I just sat there praying the entire time the band played. It was extremely hard, but it was amazing. So thank you for challenging us as a Church to stop doing a routine and actually move.
Thanks for an amazing time at worship and I hope to worship with you again.
I had a great time at FUGE. Worship is always one of the things I look forward to at camp. The comfort zone exercise was a really cool thing to do. I’m normally one of the quiet kids and I enjoyed going up to the front of the stage and worshipping in a different style. I also liked hearing your thoughts/commentary on a song before you played. Thanks for making worship a Christ centered event instead of just singing songs. I pray your music will continue to reach others and glorify God.
This week was absolutely AMAZING!!! I was part of X-Fuge on a Mission and it is just so kool what God did during this week. He brought our youth group so much closer together it was just wow. Not only that but the worship experience was just so life-changing. Thank-you to everyone at Ridgecrest who made it possible for us to have that experience.
Todd, Thanks for caring more about leading worship this past week than being a celebrity. As a Youth Pastor, I’m always thankful for people like you who keep the main thing, the main thing. Jesus was truly the focus each service. Worship was the highlight of our week! May God bless you and your ministry!
God worked in such an amazing way this week, and I feel so honored to have been used by Him and to have seen Him work through my friends. My church group, as part of X Fuge, went to a children’s home in Black Mountain to do painting, construction, and yard work. The work that they had set for us to do the entire week was completed in the first day. They had to scramble to find work for us to do. God is awesome! We met 3 guys that work for the home–Rodney, Victor, and Chris. Victor also lives at the home and I think Chris might too, I can’t remember for sure. They were all so sweet and thankful for the work God did through us. They ate lunch with us the second and third days and played games with us during the breaks from work. God really moved inside of Victor this week and changed his life. He even cried at the end of the week because he didn’t want us to leave. We were all sorry that we couldn’t do more for them. The best part of the week is knowing that at least one life was impacted for the Kingdom of God. Our youth group is continuing to pray for these 3 guys and everyone at the home. Please pray that they will give their lives fully to God and that God will continure the work He started in us through the other youth groups this summer. I can never get over how mighty our God is and how blessed we are that He choses to work through us.
Thanks you so much for being our worship leader at Fuge this past week. I know personally for me you said a lot of things that made me rethink how far I have strayed from my walk with Christ. I also really enjoyed your music, not only from this week but from your many CDs as well. Thanks again for everything!!
The week was absolutely amazing. Worship services were most definitely some of the most impactful times of the week. Not because of the exceptional talent of both you and your band and Landon (though the talent was obviously there) but because of both of your willingness to be humble servants to God. There was not a second during the worship when I had even the slightest hint from you or anyone else on stage that you were up there for any reason but the glory of God. So I thank you tremendously not for taking time out of your schedule to show up at this camp and sing, but for passionately leading those kids to the throne of the King in worship. I’ve been apart of too many camps and conferences that seemed to be about putting on an entertaining show for the crowd to enjoy, and my first instinct upon seeing the lights and all the tech stuff was to say that this week at fuge would be just another of these. It wasn’t. I feel that the experience would have been the same if it was just you and one guitar, or even if it were you and a kazoo because it was so focused on Christ, and I feel that we really were at the heart of worship. There were times when I was entertained, don’t get me wrong, it was good, but there were far more times when I found myself in tears because God was showing me the gaping disconnect between my life and the words we sang or that you spoke.
Thank you for your heart for Christ, and your willingness to make Him and His gospel the center of your ministry.
Thanks you so much for worshipping with us this whole week! You were incredible!! Your music moved me in so many ways! I’m so thankful that God let us all spend a week together! Thank You for challenging us to worship in a “different” way. It was definitely difficult for me. But in the end it was wonderful. I don’t know how many times that I have sang lyrics just because I liked the beat without comprehending them. Thanks you again!
I just wanted to tell you this is the second time our church has seen you and your band at Ridgecrest and you always amaze us with you humble spirit. I pray for you and your family. I pray God will bless you and keep you in his hands and may he always use you and your family and band to lead people in worshiping His name.
God Bless you Always,
This has been my second year at Ridgecrest where you were also there. The first time I was there, God called me to His ministry full time, though He did not tell me specifically where he wanted me. This year, as we were taking up the missions offering and while you were playing, I prayed. While praying, God spoke to me again and broke my heart for the people we were praying for. He called me to missions. One day, I’m going to a missionary. My mind is still comprehending that FACT. I just wanted to take the time to thank you for sharing your week with us all at Fuge. It truly was a blessing having you there, and it really was a Kairos Moment for me. My life is changed forever and I’m so excited to see where our great LORD takes me. Thanks again for being a part of my week. God bless you and your ministry.
I just wanted to thank you for allowing God to use you this week. I was completely out of my comfort zone for part of the time. But, God isn’t limited to my comfort! I truly believe that me, along with our youth group, had a wake up call as to what worship is really about: Expressing the love that we all have for God and his son Jesus.
When i arrived at camp, i had experienced the feeling god’s love, or had the feeling of what it is to be saved. But, after your Thursday night performance on the 8th, i can comfortably, and proudly say that i have been saved; and i have felts gods, great, and relentless love. i owe you and your band everything, you guys are truly amazing musicians and i can honestly say that because of you, i know i am going to heaven.
Thank you for everthing this it it was truely Kairos is my life (i cant spell so sorry if I didnt spell it right) XD
Your music is truely inspiring and next summer i will definatly invite my girlfriend to come along and hopefully God will work in her life as he has in mine.
I just have one question what Cd is “Dance With Me” on it’s my favorite out of all of them if u could e-mail me the Cd names tht would be great or contact me some other way thank you
-James Justice Baldwin Fl,
WOW! I would have loved to have been there! Unfortunately, I live in New Mexico, but that’s okay. Your music is awesome.
