One man, three women, one God in common.
That's the power behind the "Come Alive Tour," featuring the talents of Mark Schultz, along with Christian music's popular all-female trio Point of Grace.
After graduating from Kansas State University, Schultz packed up and moved to Nashville in 1994 to pursue his ambition of having a career in the music business. His work as a youth pastor helped give him inspiration and strength so that he was able to complete his debut self-titled album in 2000.
Currently living in North Carolina, Schultz recently completed his first studio album in almost three years, drawing on real-life experiences for "Come Alive," the most personal recording of his career.
Powerful and poignant, the song "What It Means to Be Loved" is filled with raw emotion, conveying a sense of sadness, joy, hope and love all at once. Also from the album, "He Is" was inspired by two separate stories dealing with cancer and the strength God gives to help get through it.
The "Come Alive Tour" visits the the Wesleyan Church of Hamburg (4999 McKinley Parkway) at 7 p.m. today. Tickets are $18 at the door. For information, call (800) 927-9083 or visit www.fln.org.
