The Music of CrossPoint

Every Sunday Morning I get to hear amazing Worship Music done by an amazing worship band (The Buckwalter Band). About twelve years ago, I began collecting songs, dreaming of the day that they would be played in worship. Two and a half years ago, I began hearing them played in worship when The Church of the Cross launched its newest service geared to reach all of us born after 1965.
Most of us grew up with a sound track to our lives. I have been making "Mixed Tapes" for two and a half decades. I call them "Play Lists" now, but they are essentially the same thing. Anyway, I love to share music with people, especially music that gives God what he deserves- GLORY!
Many of these songs are dream songs (Holy-waterdeep, Send the Wind, Those Who Trust, 40, Faithful to Me, You Have Redeemed My Soul, Wonderful Creator, Psalm 57, I'll Wear a White Robe) that I have always wanted to hear done in a contemporary worship setting. Others have been introduced by our very talented worship leader, David Sadd and the equally talented band members who make up our worship team. Anyway, here are links to the albums that contain the songs that we do in worship.
