The Joy Ride 

 "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood!" - Mr. Rogers

Peter Furler

Peter Furler's voice is instantly recognizable - having been the lead singer of The Newsboys for almost 20 years. He was a founding member of the group from Queensland, Australia. Though focusing on his solo career now, he still writes and produces with his friends in The Newsboys - even producing some of their records.

Peter Furler is the quintessential drummer. He taps on EVERYTHING! The beat is always present. It's that driving rhythm that fuels all of his musical passion. Awarded multiple Grammy nominations and Dove awards, Furler was even been named the industry’s songwriter of the year. Between solo ventures and The Newsboys, Furler has sold over 7 million albums!

Furler is also a painter and amateur photographer - creating art that is even more personal than his songs. In fact, on his website you can even check out some of his paintings! So a multi-platinum songwriter who is also a visual artist and as if that weren't enough - he rides motorcycles. The coolness scale was just obliterated.

Joy in The Morning

Verse of The Day

For you have been called for this purpose, since Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example for you to follow in His steps, who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in His mouth; and while being reviled, He did not revile in return; while suffering, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously. (1 Peter 2: 21-23)
