Here is a breakdown of prices: here is the leter that went out for the 2010 winter extreme Tony's passion is “helping people get it about God's great love and salvation!” Tony recently served as Tour Pastor and Gospel Communicator for Casting Crowns Lifesong Tour and Winter Jam, the largest Christian Concert Tour in America. The tours crossed the U.S. visiting more than 119 cities and experienced over 87,000 public professions of faith in Christ. Tony's love of Jesus and people is evidenced every time he speaks. An innovative Gospel communicator, Tony uses his wacky humor and passion for Christ to help people connect with God in a life-changing way. Recognized among the country's most influential Christian communicators, Tony speaks to more than 800,000 students each year though radio, TV, conferences, festivals, concerts and church events.
We've all heard it said that music is the universal language, and it's so true. No other vehicle more powerfully captures our collective hopes and fears or more poignantly celebrates our dreams and triumphs. With one listen to the music of Tenth Avenue North, it becomes obvious that songwriter Mike Donehey and his bandmates have a gift for expressing truth in a way that simultaneously educates, enlightens and entertains.

"Most of the themes in our songs are about truth and about the struggle to believe it," Donehey says of the music on the band's debut disc Over and Underneath. "I think we have to represent both sides of that coin. Jesus said, 'True worshipers will worship in spirit and in truth.' When we sit down to write a song, essentially we are dealing with two things: Truth and the struggle to accept that truth. Emotion without truth is just sentimental and truth without emotion becomes cruel. Hopefully in our music, we are talking about the truth of God, but marrying that with the struggle that is within every person to believe. I think it's a struggle that will last for our whole lives."

It's that rare ability to tap into those complex emotions that is at the core of Tenth Avenue North's music. Its songs are intellectual, melodic pop/rock that listeners will find reminiscent of Jars of Clay, yet there's a vulnerability that makes its music even more accessible in many ways. "To me, the most amazing thing is the songs," says Jason Ingram, who co-produced the band with Phillip LaRue. "The songs are just rooted in so much truth and passion. Mike's ability to communicate, both as a singer and songwriter, is on an exceptional level. I'm still overwhelmed at the way God uses these guys to teach us and compel us into a greater understanding of the gospel."

Mark Hall, the lead vocalist for Casting crowns, has been a youth pastor for the past several years and it was his heart for youth that caused him to write and perform music to reach them and help them grow as Christians. Music ministry, however, was something that he never imagined would go beyond his local church. Youth ministry in Daytona Beach, FL, followed by Atlanta, GA was where Mark and the rest of Casting Crowns shared their music. The band recorded two independent records that were distributed mainly in the Atlanta area, and both were wildly popular. They were tempted to send their CD's to record labels, but after praying about it, decided that they were supposed to just keep doing what they had been doing. It wasn't that God had other plans for them, it was that He just had a different plan for getting them where they needed to be. That path came in the form of a college student in Daytona named Chase Tremont.

Chase had one of their CD's and he shared it with his basketball coach, who happened to be friends with Mark Miller of Sawyer Brown. Mark liked what he heard, but he didn't know what he could do for the band at that point. He hung on to the two records, waiting for the right time to do something. The perfect moment came on a vacation trip with the families of two of his longtime friends, Provident Label Group President Terry Hemmings and Steven Curtis Chapman.

Hemmings and Chapman liked what they heard as much as Miller did and before long Beach Street Records was born. Mark Miller, who was running Beach Street, wanted Casting Crowns to be their first band. The rest, as they say, is history. Heavy music and pained lyrics go together like cake and ice cream, and Belton, Texas quintet, Flyleaf, aren't about to break with tradition. But while many loud rockers reopen old wounds by singing about their broken homes and broken hearts, Flyleaf confront past traumas to heal old scars and prove in the process that hope shines brighter than despair. Flyleaf's self-titled debut album echoes with songs about abuse, neglect, addiction and dysfunction, and messages about overcoming adversity. And the band's wide array of brooding beats, atmospheric textures and lunging riffs compliment Mosley's emotionally revealing lyrics, which range from breathy and beautiful to scathing and aggressive. Flyleaf originally called itself Passerby, but another artist trademarked the name before they had the chance. Ultimately the group decided to change its name to something far more befitting of their personal, confessional songs. With their tight knit chemistry, compassionate approach and songs that haunt the mind hours after they've stopped playing, Flyleaf are turning heads and leaving crowds wanting more. Indeed, their story has just begun. Newsong started out 20 years ago as a 9 member church band for Morningside Baptist Church in Valdosta, GA, never imagining that they would still be together in 2003. Founding member, Billy Goodwin, explains the group's faith attitude, "The commitment that we made was, 'God, we'll do this as long as Your hand is on it, as long as we see You working.' One of the joys in my walk has been learning that God is faithful even when things look impossible."

Throughout the years, and changes in the group, they have had 17 #1 singles, six Gospel Music Association Dove Award nominations, numerous songwriting awards, and five of the Top 100 Christian radio singles of the past decade. They are known for their songs, "Arise, My Love," "Miracles," "Jesus To The World (Roaring Lambs), and "The Christmas Shoes," which is also the title of their first Christmas Album. Classic rock riffs, swirling drums, monstrous hooks, and undeniably catchy choruses... hints of old school progressive rock mixed in with modern alternative flourishes... touches of classical influence as swelling strings intersect with sonic adrenaline rushes. It's indeed a fusion unlike any other, marking the latest chapter in the continuous evolution of Skillet, whose moniker couldn't be more fitting for their explosive new Lava/Atlantic Records release, Comatose.

More than just making a disc packed with killer compositions, Cooper hopes Comatose's deeper meaning will strike a chord on all levels with listeners from any walk of life. "We live in a time where technology and information is so fast, but somehow we've never felt more alone," he sums up, referencing a line by Matthew McConaughey in Contact. "We're all so desperately trying to communicate with each other online with MySpace and instant messenger that no one gets to know one another, and they feel so alone with nobody to talk to about their problems. So I guess in Bono-esque fashion we're talking about how we need to wake up and come out of the sleep we're in and start reaching out to one another, getting it right in our own lives and actually being there for someone else."

Dr. Johnny M. Hunt is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA. His dynamic and evangelistic messages have made him a very sought after speaker worldwide. Since coming to First Baptist Church in 1987, the church has experienced explosive growth. Under Dr. Hunt's leadership, the church has grown from 250 in Sunday School in 1986 to over 5500 currently. In 1996, Dr. Hunt was elected the President of the Pastors' Conference of the Southern Baptist Convention, and was elected the President of the Southern Baptist Convention in 2008. The messages offered in this catalogue should give you some idea why First Baptist Church has experienced such tremendous growth under his ministry. Dr. Hunt, a native of North Carolina, received his education from Gardner-Webb College and the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Dr. Hunt has also received honorary doctorates from Immanuel Baptist Theological Seminary, Covington Theological Seminary, and Tennessee Temple University. He has previously pastored churches in Gaffney, SC; Wake Forest, NC; and Wilmington, NC. He married Janet Allen Hunt of Wilmington, NC and has two daughters Deanna and Hollie.

Ergun Mehmet Caner (B.A., M.A., M.Div., Th.M., Th.D.) is president of the Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and Graduate School at the Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Raised as the son of a Muslim leader in Turkey, Caner became a Christian shortly before entering college. Serving under his Chancellor and President, Jerry Falwell Jr., Caner led the Seminary to triple in growth since his installation in 2005. A public speaker and apologist, Caner has debated Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus and other religious leaders in thirteen countries and thirty-five states. The author of seventeen books, Caner lives in Lynchburg with his wife Jill and two sons, Braxton and Drake David describes himself as an "itinerant postmodern pastor". For more than a decade, he has been sharing his unique brand of ministry to a postmodern generation, as he speaks more than 500 times each year to over 250,000 people. David speaks from his heart about issues relevant to the postmodern generation. Regardless of the setting, David's message is simple: helping people to discover the importance of a Christ-centered lifestyle and reintroduce the truth of God's Word by meeting people where they are in life and bringing them one step closer in the process of knowing and becoming like Jesus Christ. He has authored 13 books and you can find him at davetown.com. As one of the nation's foremost speakers, God has blessed David with the talent to reach the high tech, attention-lacking culture of Generation Next.
