Flashback Friday

 Back to the 90's again this week, featuring PHILLIPS, CRAIG, & DEAN. They are a contemporary Christian music trio composed of pastors Randy Phillips, Shawn Craig, and Dan Dean. All three are senior pastors at their respective local churches. Since forming in 1991, the group has sold over two million units. They have also received ten GMA Dove Award nominations, winning four, including Praise and Worship Album of the Year in 2007 for Top of My Lungs, and Inspirational Album of the Year in 2010 for Fearless.

They have had many hits over the years. Some of their early songs include "Crucified With Christ", "Turn Up the Radio", "Favorite Song of All", "Table of Grace", my all time favorite Father's Day song: "I Wanna Be Just Like You" , and many more.

Perhaps my favorite Phillips, Craig, & Dean song is Mercy Came Running". released in 1995...

There have been many more hits throughout the 2000's and beyond. In recent years, they've shed their contemporary Christian roots and focused on more worship oriented music. On that line, they've released their latest albums. 

Since all three singers are full-time pastors and make it a priority to be at their respective churches in Sunday services, they have declared a virtual moratorium on Saturday night concerts. They have performed at the conventions of the National Religious Broadcasters and Christian Booksellers Association, appeared at Moody Church, played at Promise Keepers rallies, and recorded music for the National Day of Prayer.
