Chris Tomlin
Date(s): Aug 08, 2014
When: 7:30 pm
Where: Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts

Tickets:  $35

Even at a young age, Chris Tomlin felt a stirring as God called him to serve through music.  I just kept sensing that God had given me a gift for this, he says.  I remember I got on my knees under a tree at a summer camp as an 8th grader and I said God whatever you want for the rest of my life, I want to serve you and follow you and I want to live for you.  I didn't know if I'd be a songwriter.  I didn't know if I'd be a musician, but when I started playing the music and seeing people respond the way they did, I just really felt that this was what God wanted me to do.  It was just so encouraging to see people respond to the music.  It was as if they forgot that there was even someone on stage. People were really connecting.  That was my heart.  I kept seeing that over and over and that continues even to this day.  We're really connecting people to God with music and that's what is so exciting to me.  That's so beautiful to me.  It's so encouraging every time.
