The Joy Ride

By this point you should start freaking out if you’ve not planned something for Mother’s Day. Which is this Sunday.

Matt Maher

Matt Maher's career has been one lived in transition. He moved from Newfoundland, Canada to the US in order to follow God's call to a life in ministry. He planted himself as a worship leader for a church in Mesa, Arizona. There may not be a place more polar opposite of Canada than Arizona. Then he moved his family to Nashville, now working full time as a touring artist and worship leader.

Maher has had the chance to write some incredible worship songs and work with other gifted worship leaders; Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Brenton Brown, Audrey Assad, Jars of Clay and Hawk Nelson. Those songs have earned him nearly a dozen Dove Award nominations - AND TWO GRAMMY nominations!

Matt Maher's challenge to those he worships with is, ".. everybody is called to be a missionary wherever we are. The mission field has changed. The mission field is everywhere."
