BFA – Demonstrating Real Faith

As I took a front row seat at the Brookline First Baptist Church in Springfield, Missouri, the pastor and music director taped a sign that said, “Welcome Brian Free and Assurance,” to the carpeted stage.  I was delighted with finding a seat in the front, and after making some new friends and catching up with…

A Thanksgiving Playlist

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Here in Missouri we had a beautiful day to be thankful for this year!  As my family  sat down for our Thanksgiving meal, my Grandpa reminded us all that last year on Thanksgiving Day we had the first snow-flurries of the season!  After stuffing ourselves beyond what is probably not healthy, lol,…

Swinging From the Chandeliers!

BFA Video Blog – The Game Or The Gospel?

Here is the video blog to accompany BFA’s concert review entitled The Game Or The Gospel.  Throughout the video you can see a portion of the emotion the guys put into their performances that night, but it still doesn’t capture the energy that was on stage!  The energy you see here was fourfold live!  So…

L5 – Living Faith
