Audrey Assad

The Lee University U-Church season will continue with Christian artist Audrey Assad on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

Ms. Assad is an independent singer, musician, and songwriter whose musical influences range from Paul Simon to Jack White. She was signed to Christian record label Sparrow Records for four years until she began her independent career in 2011. 

“It's very exciting knowing the direction that Audrey has taken with this current tour,” said U-Church Director Josh York. “The way she incorporates visual art and traditional instrumentation facilitates corporate prayer and worship in a unique way that I believe will be appreciated by our students and guests.”

Review for Audrey Assad:

Ms. Assad has a passion for bringing to light the peculiarities and joys of the Sacrament, which can be seen through the music she makes.

Her latest album, “Fortunate Fall,” was released in August of 2013. Paid for through a fan-based fundraising campaign, the album is full of songs for liturgy, personal prayer, and corporate worship. 

According to Ms. Assad, her music “explores the beauty of human need, in that needing God allows us to know God is Christ the Redeemer and the Holy Spirit the Revealer.”

U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event for students, alumni and the community. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. and seating is first come, first serve.  Childcare is available for all who attend.  Please contact Christie Wyatt at cwyatt@leeuniversity.edu  for more information.

For a chance to win contests, as well as have input on future artists, please follow U-Church on Twitter @LeeUChurch.

Bob Tamasy: What's In A Name

The other day I was reading an article that said biblical names are declining in popularity. Aha. That’s why I haven’t heard of any babies lately being named Mephibosheth, Absalom, Hophni, Jereboam or Eliphelet! And given the ruthless reputation of Queen Jezebel (1 Kings 18-21), it’s no wonder that’s not a name of choice in maternity wards around the nation. Who would want their ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The 15-Year-Old Marine

There are 58,267 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall that today sits majestically in the Constitution Gardens of our nation's capital. It has never been lost on me that 33,103 of those who are named were only 18 years old when they died. But what caught my eye during my morning reading is that one of the names carved in the black granite “Dan Bullock“ was only 15 years old ... (click for more)
