    Worship Wednesday #9: Doug Martin

    Doug Martin plays on the worship team at Valley Park Church in North Hills, California. I originally met Doug and his equally talented wife, Teresa, when they played some of their original music at my church (Teresa is the sister of one of my mentors, Matt Smith, who led worship at my church when I came to faith).

    Doug’s style of music is a barebones, storytelling style that is all at once sincere, beautiful, instructive, and glorifying to God.

    Includes song “Surrender”

    Notable Quote: “I think for the most part Christian music – not only from my perspective but by the world – is viewed as kind of overproduced in general and very kind of superficial.” – Doug Martin

    Dahn B learned his musical chops playing in the secular world, living that stereotypical secular world life in the world of music where self is king. Five years ago, the Lord revealed Himself to Dahn in a powerful way, and he has been writing music for and serving the Lord (along with his 17-year old prodigy, Jae) as the duo “HIGHEZPRAYS.”

    Rob talks with Dahn about his music, his testimony, and his family… and, in the end, we ended up with one powerful testimony that knocked my socks off. Hope it does the same for you.

    JOHN TIBBS’ CONTEST WINNER: Rob Shumaker. Congrats, Rob!

    Notable Quote: “I looked in the mirror, Rob, and I just kind of like was saddened by what I had seen. I didn’t like what I saw, and I just cried out to God that, you know, this has got to stop.” – Dahn B

    Aviad Cohen is a talented, Jewish songwriter, currently living in Boise, Idaho, who writes songs for Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ).

    (1) Tell us how you came to Christ

    Israeli born Jew, moved to Brooklyn NY at age 2. Raised in Conservative Judaism, went to Conservative and Orthodox Jewish schools and Yeshivas. Grew up and got into New Age and other things. Later launched a career as 50 Shekel, a Jewish rapper, which turned into an overnight online sensation. Was being groomed by Orthodox Rabbis in NYC to become an Orthodox Jewish example to the Jewish community at large. I was realizing that the Judaism I was raised in all my life was predominantly focused on man-made tradition and pretty much void of God’s Word, especially the book of Prophets in the Tanakh (Old Covenant) which share a lot of prophecy about the Messiah. God used believers to contact me online at my website (including Jews For Jesus, whom I later met) and people shared the Good News with me and inspired me to read the Bible.

    A few supernatural situations occurred. Yeshua revealed Himself to me in a huge personal way. I read the Bible and prayed to God to reveal His truth to me, repented of my sins, surrendered my life to Him, got mikvah’d (baptized) and have been a follower of Yeshua Messiah for over 5 years now. It’s not easy walking the narrow path but I thank god for His grace that He extends towards me. When I fall, I repent and get back up again and hold on to His promises.

    I have made three evangelically driven albums within the past 4 years and
