  • The internet is a powerful tool. It can be used for peace or as we’ve all seen lately, it can be used for hate. We all have a voice but to be honest, sometimes I feel like some people shouldn’t have a voice. Those who repeatedly post hateful pictures & statements and who continually divide instead of unify. I challenge everyone to post something positive. Something that may make someone smile instead of something that fuels the flames of a fire that is raging right now. Think twice before you post and ask yourself, will this help or will this hurt? #peace #mercy #love #grace #patience #understanding #positivevibes

  • George Floyd was a man of faith and worked throughout his life trying to restore peace. It’s important to honor his life peacefully. To protest peacefully. This is what he would want. This is what he lived for and stood for. #georgefloyd will never be forgotten. Read this story below and keep George’s spirit alive:  The rest of the country knows George Floyd from several minutes of cell phone footage captured during his final hours. But in Houston’s Third Ward, they know Floyd for how he lived for decades—a mentor to a generation of young men and a “person of peace” ushering ministries into the area.  Before moving to Minneapolis for a job opportunity through a Christian work program, the 46-year-old spent almost his entire life in the historically black Third Ward, where he was called “Big Floyd” and regarded as an “OG,” a de-facto community leader and elder statesmen, his ministry partners say.  Floyd spoke of breaking the cycle of violence he saw among young people and used his influence to bring outside ministries to the area to do discipleship and outreach, particularly in the Cuney Homes housing project, locally known as “the Bricks.” “George Floyd was a person of peace sent from the Lord that helped the gospel go forward in a place that I never lived in,” said Patrick PT Ngwolo, pastor of Resurrection Houston, which held services at Cuney. “The platform for us to reach that neighborhood and the hundreds of people we reached through that time and up to now was built on the backs of people like Floyd,” he told Christianity Today.  Ngwolo and fellow leaders met Floyd in 2010. He was a towering 6-foot-6 guest who showed up at a benefit concert they put on for the Third Ward. From the start, Big Floyd made his priorities clear. “He said, ‘I love what you’re doing. The neighborhood need it, the community need it, and if y’all about God’s business, then that’s my business,’” said Corey Paul Davis, a Christian hip-hop artist who attended Resurrection Houston. “He said, ‘Whatever y’all need, wherever y’all need to go, tell ’em Floyd said y’all good. I got y’all.’”

  • There’s no better answer, no greater example, no stronger solution to our worldwide turmoil than #Jesus - all of the things that we need now - grace, mercy, patience, love, forgiveness, salvation are there for us. This world needs Jesus now more than ever. We continue trying to figure things out on our own but that’s not going too well is it? To quote a @Stryper song that so perfectly applies to our times - “Christ is The Lover of your soul, and He wants to give you all you need - so freely Surrender, open up onto His majesty”. By His Strypes we are healed🙏

  • This may very well be the most bad a$$ guitar that I’ll ever rock the stage with. @sullyguitars does NOT mess around! I can’t wait to plug this in and turn it up  to 11;-)

  • People either hate my voice or like/love my voice. I’ve been compared to Dennis DeYoung so many times that I feel like we’re distant relatives;-) When I started singing I set out to have my own style, NOT to sound like 100 other singers. And I knew because I was not the best singer on the planet, it was important to work on my guitar skills as well. I’ve worked hard and continue to do so to be the best that I can be. If you like what I do I’m so honored. If you hate what I do, I really don’t care. It hasn’t stopped me from continuing to write, record, produce, perform and to keep marching on. So to all the haters out there - thank you🙏 Much more to come💪

  • The first Boston album changed my life. Mostly due to the voice of Brad Delp. He was one of a kind and is irreplaceable IMO. I was shocked when they asked me to join the band after his passing. I’m not 1/10th the singer Brad was but I gave my all and was somehow able to relate to all the Boston fans in a powerful way as we celebrated Brads life. I’ll never forget meeting everyone after every show and hearing the most kind comments about my involvement. It was truly amazing and so memorable. Were you able to see me perform with Boston in 2008 and if so, did you enjoy it? I sure did😉 Even though it was short lived, I was a member of one of the most iconic bands in rock & roll👊 RIP Brad Delp, I never met you but I sure do wish I had.........

  • No ego, no pride, just simple confidence in the fact that we have outdone every album since our first in the second chapter of @Stryper - our new album has outdone them all and will go down as our best. We’ll continue to strive for perfection, to improve the game and I still believe that our best is yet to come. Do you? First song coming soon👊
