Im So Excited
Hi, My name is Chris Surdock. I have been leading worship in San Diego, California for approximately 15 years. I've led worship at many churches over the years including, but not limited to Horizon Christian Fellowship Main Campus w/Pastor Mike MacIntosh, Horizon Christian Fellowship North County w/Pastor Bob Botsford, Horizon Christian Fellowship Soutbay w/Pastor Norlyn Kent, Horizon Christian Fellowship Park Chapel w/Pastor Rob Glickman, The Rock Church w/Pastor Miles McPhearson, Southcoast Community Church w/Pastor Steve Bombaci, Pathways Community Church w/Pastor Phil Herrington, North County Community Church w/Pastor Paul Murray, Connections Church w/Pastor Mark Miller, and many many more. Not only do I lead worship, but I speak at Worship Conferences and hold workshops to help develop worship leaders young and old. I released my first Worship Album titled 'I'm so Excited' in August of 2002. The CD has been an incredible blessing to many people across the globe. More than just an extra source of income, this album has been an incredible ministry tool, taking me to Brazil, Mexico and across the United States to worship with believers. More people than I can speak of have shared stories of how God has ministered to them through this album in a very intimate way. Even though the album is 6 years old, it is still new to each person who hears it for the first time. The style that it is will never go out of style. It will remain a tool of ministry as long as it remains in circulation for the Glory of God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit by which these songs were given inspiration from. I'd love to come and share my music with you. If you have a church service, special event or a small group bible study that you would like to have some special music or guest worship at, please call me. I'd be honored to share my music with you. Love offerings or honorariums are accepted, and I also ask that I can set up a table to sell my CD's. I can do a full band set up or just me playing acoustically for a more intimate setting. Also, if you have a bookstore, I would appreciate the opportunity to leave a few CD's to sell to your customers. Hope to hear from you soon. May God Richly Bless You. I believe that as a Worship Leader, I must stir up desire in the heart of the believer to 'get real and worship God in a more intimate way!' After all He deserves it, right? I really strive to lead worship by example. After all, I couldn't possibly lead others into worship if I am not worshiping Him first? There is something about sincere worship that really grabs a hold of you. I believe that if I can disappear from the eyes of the people during the worship by turning their eyes towards the Lord, then I have been successful in fulfilling my duty as a Worship Leader. My desire is that the worshiper will learn to be expressive in their worship to God. I know that worshiping God is instrumental in preparing the heart of the worshiper to hear and receive God's word. I like to teach people to worship God in a way that is freeing to the spirit. And by the way... (David danced). I hope that my music helps you to experience worship in a New and Fresh way. I did not make this CD so that I could be a cool guy and have one like everybody else in this world. For me, it was a time of obedience to the Lord when I answered a call to take my heart for worship and my heart for drawing people into the Presence of God, and somehow try to capture that and put in a form that people could take with them where they go. And as they pop the CD in, there is no focus on me, but the focus is directed towards the Lord God Almighty who deserves our praise. I must say that I am well pleased with the CD. Since I am more of a live Worship type leader, I was wondering how I was going to capture my heart in the recording process. God proved faithful and showed that He is in control and that His Spirit is overwhelming in the words and music on this CD. I hope and pray that you enjoy it as much as I do! Recording this album was an incredible blessing. Not only to sing with my great friend and co-vocalist Tara Sartain, along with all of the band members; Jason Pich (Bass), Jason Presley (Drums), John Williams 'Jdubb' (Keys), John Spencer (Drums) and Joey Casora (Sax), but especially the door that God opened for me to record at 82A Studios in Chula Vista, CA. The owner of the studio, and the engineer of my album, Tony Abat, was an incredible blessing in my life. He really went for the Gold. I never imagined that I would end up with a CD that sounded as incredible as this one does. The quality of the recording is phenomenal. You gotta hear it! Thanks Tony!
