Tested By Fire
The band got their name from their home church, New Prairie Community of Faith in Carbondale, Illinois, where they were the official church worship band for several years. Their first CD was released October, 2007 and was intended solely to benefit the founding pastor of our church as he and his wife are attempting to adopt a baby. The band did not make any money with the CD. The band feels that music is a joy to record and hopes it is a blessing to all who hear it. Each member of the band has played a unique role, which only God could accomplish. Joe is in the band due to answering an ad for musicians several years ago. Amber is in the band because Joe fell in love with her and wouldn't leave her alone. Dave is in the band because we bothered him long enough to 'step out of his box' and try something new. Ann quit one band before deciding to be in another and Matt...is awesome.
