and headbangers simply wouldn't listen to anything else. I had no idea that the Lord was going to call me into that ministry, because I was already active in another music ministry at the time. But, as the months went on, it became clear that the Lord wanted to use me to be a part of this new work. Nearly a year and a half went by before the first Bloodgood rehearsal happened. We had no idea what we were going to play, much less where. But all of us had the conviction that God had called us to do it.

The band was never about trying to get a record deal and hit the "big time." The main focus of Bloodgood was always to reach the lost with the Good News of Jesus Christ. The music was the tool because of it's universal appeal, it opened the doors for us. As time went on, we retained our evangelistic message but also added music presenting a Christian worldview. Songs like Alone in Suicide and America would touch on social issues that could only be resolved through Christ. Others admonished our Christian audience, songs like Do Or Die, All Stand Together and others.

We wanted the Lord to orchestrate our ministry and bring us to where He could reach the unsaved and encourage believers. And that's exactly what He did! The stacks of letters we receive, and continue to receive, of changed lives, bear witness to the anointing God put on our music. None of us in the band take credit for that. To God be the glory!"
