Using his Talents to Glorify God

February 17, 2017
By Luke Breton Van Groll, Class of 2006

I attended and graduated from Cascade Christian Schools. As a student, I had the privilege of serving on the worship team at chapels. Some of my best memories were in those times of worship. Those moments had a substantial impact on my life. I would continue to lead and write worship after I graduated.

Two years ago my wife and I moved to Los Angeles to help plant a church in the Hollywood area. This last November we felt led to a church in the San Francisco area where we are currently the worship Pastors.

This last week I released a song called “Amazing Grace (Our God Is). Ephesians 2:8 says: "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—"

I took a song of faith from the 1700s (Amazing Grace)  and merged it with a song of faith I wrote in 2017.

This song is significant to me because I started writing it in Seattle, recorded most of it in LA and finished it in San Francisco.  It talks about the greatness of God and His grace. It has even greater personal significance to me because it represents God’s grace and faithfulness throughout these last 3 years as I was writing it. Hopefully this is sung in heaven.
