From the recording Step Out
Behind the music:
Dr. Susan Ventura, Pastor of the Francis Street First United Methodist Church (St. Joseph, Missouri) had a series of messages about faith and courage. I (EK) play the piano and lead the singing for the first service (contemporary). I try to bring new songs to service that fit with her message. I could not find the right song. While sitting at the piano at 3:00 May 2, 2015, these words and music came to me. The first week I used courage in all the verses and for the next week I used faith instead. The finished song includes courage and faith. This song became the title of my new album finished in March 2016 and is scheduled for release on April 4, 2016.
I thank the congregation of the church for "stepping out" and allowing me to brings to their service. Their encouragement has helped promote me to "step out" and make some life changes.
Everyone needs to face their fear and step out in faith and courage when called to carry His Kingdom to others.
