I attended Mars Hill for 10 years, beginning in 2002, when it was a single location. It is the only church where I have ever been a Christian.

Emery will launch a crowdfunding campaign for their new album, You Were Never Alone, next week. If you sign up for their mailing list, you'll get a free download of a new song.
