Over the last week, I’ve been working on a video with my creative team. I guess it was more than just a video. It was an honor and privilege to develop the video around an original song written by our worship pastor Greg Erway and his son Ethan.

With lyrics like: “Hearts were held captive; Help far away; Sinners, one and the same. Searching for freedom; Desperate for life; Broken and bound we came;” we wanted visually capture the essence of America and Christianity. So over four days we shot 8 plus hours and almost 100GB of video to produce this video…
