A New Calling

A New Calling

I have really big news: I’m now launching a school of worship and school of ministry in Costa Rica. My wife and I have partnered with another like-minded couple in this effort, and have just begun building the campus, drafting the curriculum and forming a network of international speakers and ministry leaders. The school will […]

Heidi Baker and Lou Engle

Heidi Baker and Lou Engle

This past weekend was a highlight in many ways. Our church hosted a conference featuring Heidi Baker and Lou Engle, two of my personal favorites in regards to Christian leadership and anointing. Most people are familiar with Heidi Baker, but not Lou.  I first encountered him in July of 2007 at The Call in Nashville, a […]

Alyssa’s Heart of Worship

Alyssa’s Heart of Worship

At about the age of 12, my youngest daughter began to take an interest in singing. I noticed that she intentionally pushed herself toward uncomfortable places vocally. She didn’t really have a knack for harmonies, for example, but she forced herself to work at them constantly. She would listen to every kind of worship music, as […]

Cape Town Worship

Cape Town Worship

Such an amazing time of worship, sightseeing and fellowship in South Africa with JoshGen Church. These beautiful people really excel in hospitality, community and authentic worship! I’m so humbled to have been invited to lead worship, teach, serve in the townships, and provide training for the worship leaders. JoshGen, you have been quickly grafted into my heart!

FACT Alliance

FACT Alliance

So grateful to all the generous donors who sponsored my run this morning. I’m genuinely surprised to report that I finished 5th in my division – a total shock since I didn’t train at all, and haven’t run in over 30 years (talk about God’s grace!!) More importantly, your generous gifts totaled $1060, which goes […]

Worshiping with Kylene

Worshiping with Kylene

My daughter Kylene has been leading worship with me for years. In fact, the first time she played keys for me she was 12.  Many years later, we find ourselves back in San Clemente, back at Heritage Christian Fellowship and leading worship together! It’s actually happened several times since we got here in July, but this recent […]

Loving Uganda

Loving Uganda

The most remarkable 10 days of my life! Thank you Frank & Cindy May and Remember the Poor for inviting me and making this trip possible. I’m astounded at the depth and effectiveness of the work being done by your organization to spread the gospel and minister to the needy. A truly unforgettable experience!

Re-Remembering The Poor

Re-Remembering The Poor

Haven’t taken the time to blog or update in a while, and was reminded of that after a recent repeat ministry opportunity. Remember The Poor asked me to come back and lead worship for their annual board meetings in Arizona.  This is such an incredible ministry organization, and the only one of its kind I’m […]

Worshipful Weekend

Worshipful Weekend

Had an amazing weekend leading worship with some outstanding and anointed worship leaders.  Phillip LaRue and I teamed up to lead at the Foundry’s Friday Night Meltdown, a ministry of Scott MacLeod’s Harvest Sound.  Scott has been ministering in and to Nashville’s inner city for about 15 years, and I’m humbled and excited to be hooked […]

Burn 24-7

Burn 24-7

Just got hooked up with The Burn 24-7 this past weekend.  I’m excited about the calling and vision of this ministry, and look forward to leading worship with them again in the future!  Special thanks to Charée Balm for leading with me.

Pour Me Out Like… Perfume

Pour Me Out Like… Perfume

(“Pour Me Out Like… Perfume” was written as a devotional for CMcentral.com) Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. John 12:24 (ESV) It was summer of 2006, and I was in Nashville to record a […]

The Worship Journals Interview

The Worship Journals Interview

Bridget Willard interviews Chris Nesbitt for The Worship Journals. WJ   What does worship mean to you? CN   Surrender & obedience. Surrender, in terms of who you are, and obedience as far as what you do. The more practical manifestations of “worshiping” or being a “worshiper” are simply the fruit of living obedient and surrendered lives. WJ   […]

A Faithful Generation

A Faithful Generation

So stoked to have had my first Sunday teaching opportunity!  This message is from a recent Sunday morning at Heritage Christian Fellowship in San Clemente, CA, where I brought what I consider to be a prophetic word about the specific calling on this present generation of believers.  Give it listen (below).    

The Scars of Obedience

The Scars of Obedience

Then Jesus said to his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. Matthew 16:24 The Lord said MOVE. He had been speaking words of preparation to my wife and me for years, and then He suddenly gave a surprising command. We were to […]
