Hey, the website’s up and running again. I’m so sorry for all the time that you couldn’t get on toddagnew.com, and instead had to read your Bible, hang out with your family, talk to real people, and eat good food. Seriously, I am sorry that the site has been down (in case you missed the news, it was hacked and had to be rebuilt from scratch.) So you missed a fairly strenuous time in our lives. We packed up and moved from Austin to Dallas. I preached two camps and led worship for one. I led for the last time at our church, Austin Stone Community Church. My wife got a great promotion, which instigated this process, but God made His opinion loud and clear for us and we are very grateful. I’m starting seminary in the fall at DTS (Dallas Theological Seminary). I’ll still be on the road a couple of weekends a month (same as last year) so hopefully I’ll get to see you somewhere this year. So we’re busy unpacking and getting settled here in the Metroplex. Definitely miss Austin but really excited about what God is going to do with us here.
So there’s the quick update from my end. Why don’t you leave a comment below and give us your summer update. New blogs coming soon. Thanks.

Just read this post. I was born and raised in Big D and although have been in Albuquerque(where I saw u when u were here) for the last 10 years, Dallas will always be home. Just wanted to say how much I love the songs that the Lord has given to you to sing for us!! He has given you a beautiful voice and such real life lyrics!! You are a blessing to many!!!
Dear Bro Todd. I want to encourage you a bit. I was writing a book from 2004 to 2010 called, “Jesus did not start a Religion”. It was a difficult task because I didnt understand what the Lord was doing in me. But the Lord did such a work those years!!
During that season I was turned on to your music. Many times, with tears running down my face, I listened to “Fragile Breath” or “My Jesus” or “Grace like Rain”. I felt like God was giving others a similar testimony, and I felt not so alone. Derek Webb’s music back then was also quite comforting.
I wanted to tell you more of the testimony. Its long. But at least I can encourage you a bit. We are set before God like an offering that is burnt up upon the altar. The whole time I have been sitting here that statement keep repeating itself in my mind. Its the Lord. A Word for you: “We are set before the throne of God like an offering that is burnt up upon the altar.”
The hardest people we will ever minister to are the gifted and talented, zealous brothers and sisters in Christ. I keep remembering that its an upside down kingdom, the least are exalted in His Kingdom to become the greatest. You know all this….
I started having dreams in 2005. Before that too, but in 2005 it became a regular part of my life. My wife and I live in Hawaii now. The Lord led us here thru many miracles signs and wonders. In 2005 I left behind my businesses and started to travel and write and minister (as the Lord gave me grace). Its been a wild ride but BLESSED!!
I want to tell you more… I have to run out but my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Perhaps I can write you more sometime? I have more I would like to share. “If Jesus did not start a Religion, what did He start?”
I would like to share more….
God bless bro.
