The Luke Project- The Gospel in Song
Organized by: Kacey Walkingstick
October 15, 2016
Hi, my name's Kacey Walkingstick and I'm a songwriter. I've been writing scripture songs for the last couple of years to help believers in memorizing scripture and to have the Word of God floating around in their hearts. Last year, God started laying on my heart to write the entire gospel of Luke into song, word for word. My purpose for this project is helping you have scripture in your head and heart and for reaching non-believers in a new way with the Word of God.
It's really motivating for me when one of these scripture songs enters my head randomly throughout the day or sometimes directly after praying. Sometimes God uses them to answer my prayers. Other times, God has used it to encourage me when I'm feeling down. This drives me forward in my writing every day because I want the world to experience this as well! If you are a believer, would you join me in praying for this project? I'm praying that God would use this in a big way to reach the broken, the lost, and the scared with the good news about Christ.
The reason why I'm raising money for recording this project is so that it will be professional. I want to represent the Word of God in the best way possible. I want people to listen to it and actually enjoy what they're hearing! The $8200 will fund the first of 5 albums. So yes, I will be fundraising 4 more times after this! I have the expenses broken down on a chart for you, so you can easily see where every dime is going.
"Why so much?" you say. This first album will have 24 songs, double the length of a normal album. This amount is actually dirt cheap for that many songs. There are many hard working musicians playing and singing on the project and they deserve to be paid for their time. Each character in the book of Luke will be sung by a different person, which is why there are so many vocalists on the project. Because I want this project to take flight so badly, I am not taking a cut for any of my time. If we turn a profit from this album, it will be put toward the next 4 albums.
My ultimate dream for this project is for Christians to know the gospel so well, they can share it with the world without missing a beat. I would also love to see non-believers experience the gospel in a new way or for the first time. Maybe they've read it before and part of it didn't make sense. Maybe they got bored or just chose to not believe. I'm praying that God will bring it to life for them- make it real- make it personal- and add to His kingdom! If this is your dream too, please prayerfully consider donating. Thank you! - - Kacey
