We're Andrew & Amber Olafsson and Caleb Fobes. We're a couple of ministry leaders, song-writers, and a worship leader out of the Charlotte, NC area. We've been working on a project over the last year and we're so excited to tell you about it! Check out our video and see how you can help, we'd love to have you partner with us on this project!
Below the video you can see our goal and what we need to get there, learn how to give, read more details about our story and needs, and info on the album (including a breakdown of the budget). If you love what we're doing, would you help us spread the word about our project by sharing this page or our VIDEO?
Many of us believe in people experiencing FREEDOM in Christ and want to see the church UNITED, and this is a tangible way you can give to that cause. The AWESOME news is as a 501c3 non-profit donations to this project are tax-deductible.
We are your normal, everyday people who love God and just want people to know Him. If you watched our video, you know our story is an unconventional one and that we have a heart for FREEDOM and UNITY.
No, we’re not a church, or this famous band who tours around and has all these gigs set up. We’re a grassroots, writing-songs-in-the-field-like-David kind of movement.
You learned in the video about the desire we had to produce our own worship songs with the heart of our mission: to bring unity to the Church and freedom to people, but we lacked the skill. After praying over this vision for a few months, song lyrics started coming to Amber… so she wrote them down, because she didn’t know what else to do. Then, they prayed some more for the right person to lead the charge.
A few months later the we met the Fobes. Us two couples sat down and shared our stories and vision God had given us, and after prayer, we decided this was the right fit. Caleb became the United House worship director. He has been leading worship for 10 years and writing songs since he was 14 years old. He took the lyrics, added some of his own, created the melodies, and the songs started coming together.
After completing a few demos, we decided this was a “God thing” and we should share this music we were creating with others. We decided to pursue professionally producing the songs. Within a week of this decision we had meetings with two producers! What?! Only God. We chose to partner with The Vanguard Room in Lakeland, FL and we have been in production since March 2021.
This worship album will be our heart and soul played out in music. Our songs are about people experiencing freedom, about how as a body, we've got to come together to see this long-awaited revival. These songs are what our hearts long to see, and we believe it is the desire of many others to see the church united and completely free. This is how we're changing the world, writing anthems of revival.
This is a community-funded project, because we know there are many out there who believe in people need to experience FREEDOM in Christ and want to see the church UNITED. This is a tangible way you can give to that cause. We're looking for people to partner with us and be a part of producing this album. We are an independent worship group and are not backed by a record label. We can't do it without you and we wouldn't want to.
In order to complete this project and get these songs out the people who need the hope they carry, we need to raise $15,000. The funds we raise will pay for recording/studio costs—mixing and mastering the songs, producing a limited amount of cds, creating promotional materials for the album, making music videos, and spreading the word about our worship music.
Have a heart to see people set FREE in Christ and the church UNITED? Partner with this ministry and sow into to that cause! As a 501c3 non-profit donations to this project/ministry are tax-deductible.
