Exactly three weeks ago today, we received a call that would change our course of life as we knew it. If we were going to jump at the chance to buy the business that we had been talking about for the past couple of months, we needed to move quickly. There was another offer on the table and we had only two weeks to get in the running.
A mans heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.
We made a plan and began stepping…quickly.
One week later, we had all of the elements of a deal, so we made an offer, and they accepted.
On August 31, 2012, Kristy and I will become the owners of ROOTS Worship Arts Academy (formerly the School of Worship) in Franklin, TN!
ROOTS Academy offers a unique twist on traditional lessons. We offer music, voice and dance to students of all ages, but the curriculum centers around developing the technical aspects AND cultivating a heart of worship. This is accomplished through both private and group lessons, but students can also join a worship band. Imagine being able to say that you’re in a band at age 8…yup…that happens at the School of Worship.
We couldn’t be more excited at the opportunity, yet humbled by the responsibility that we’ll have to train and release the next generation of musicians and worshippers.
As for my time at the Inspiration Networks (Halogen & INSP), bittersweetly, it will be coming to an end this Fall. I love my job and I love working in the television industry, but more-so, I love the people I work with. I’ve had the privilege of laboring alongside some of the smartest and hardest working people I’ve ever known. It’s truly been a joy to be part of the team and I will miss them all, a lot.
So, look out Nashville…
The Chowning’s will be back the first of September!
