Restoring Beijing!

Friend and college Bruce holds a comp copy of RESTORE. It will be interesting to see how God uses Worshiplanet's latest CD/DVD as a resource for Asia. Pray that it will bless the body of Christ in China and beyond!

More from Euro

Czech judge and violinist, Klara V, trained to London as part of the RESTORE team. She was instrumental in helping us secure both the Cathedral and a special musical surprise awaiting us! A spectacular Czech quitet!

Two drivers took care of ‘getting us to the church on time’. Our first driver was Tim Mobley from Brussels. Tim is Mark and Carrie's much loved brother-in-law and used to drive a bus driver for Living Sound! Back in the day. 

On BGVs was our long time friend, Giorgio, and what a voice and can really relax knowing that he is supporting him vocally.  Like Klara, we went to Giorgio's home town on the tour. Florence was the 3rd concert stop.

RESTORE goes East

The RESTORE project officially makes it around the world today. Mark & Carrie Tedder, project founders, are headed out for a 2 week Asian ministry trip.  They will be leading worship and teaching workshops in China and Thailand.  Like a shadow, the RESTORE project goes where ever the Tedders go. Please pray that as Worshiplanet's CD/DVD launches in Asia, that is will be a blessing to the Body there. It is a call for Europe to return to God but it is also a prayer for restoration and Asia is part of that prayer!

Southern Tour Complete

North Little Rock was the last city on the RESTORE 10 day southern tour.  Fellowship Bible Church is one of Worshiplanet's supporting churches and they hosted an evening of worship with the WP band. We taught the congregation a few songs off of the RESTORE project. What a pleasure to worship with those faithful folks!

In 5 days RESTORE heads to Asia!

Through the Lens

Camera man David M., an American living in Hong Kong, is graciously joined the team. He was our still-shot guy and will hopefully made us all look good.  Mega-Structures Series videographer, Curtis R. was on camera #2. He is an Australian but shoots mainly in China. Both David and Curtis were part of The Door filming.

North Americans

What a team! We are often overwhelmed by the talent and generosity of Christ's body around the world. And the city of Colorado Springs seems to be teeming with those kinds of people.  One of two camera men, Jim K. from Woodmen Valley Chapel joined the project.    Josh S. ran sound for both the band and the audience. This CD project leans more towards the acoustic side. We weren't rockin' out with a full band or big loud drum kit. That is where percussionist and friend Mike H. (via Canada) came into play. He was our groove setter and held us all together.

RESTORE arrives in Colorado!

The RESTORE CD/DVD project arrives in Colorado Springs today! What started out as a crazy dream back in November of 2009 is complete at last. Get your copy at today.


London's Heathrow airport was busy in May with RESTORE travelers. Though the Europeans didn't fly very far, they still had a lot of time invested in this project. Trevor (from Ireland via Eastbourne) joined us as recording engineer. While we will were worshipping away in the vast cathedral spaces, poor Trevor was  tucked away in closets and back rooms making it all happen. 

German bass player, Manu, was the next to arrive.  He came from just north of Frankfurt and has been a part of the Worshiplanet team for years. He laid the foundation for our musical chords and kept us all entertained with his keen sense of humour!
Spoken worship artists and the Tedders long time friends, Gerard and Chrissie Kelly, are a vital part of RESTORE. The Kellys are English but live and operate a ministry in France. Gerard wrote original material for the CD/DVD and he was also a part of the theological foundation for RESTORE.  Chrissie delivered some of the spoken worship on location in France.

2nd Driver

We found the much needed 2nd driver for the RESTORE tour.  Perry M. from Colorado took charge of the 9 seater van.  He is a great friend of the Tedders and very dependable. Big thanks to Sonscape (the ministry he works for) and Perry's family for allowing him the time off - and at such short notice.  We are SO thankful. Our team is complete!

The Tedders picked up the first shipment of boxes containing the RESTORE CD/DVD today! They are on their way to Texas/Arkansas/Thailand/and China for a pre-release events. Can't wait to see what God does with it.

This was the first recording venue in May.  Lincoln Cathedral in the UK.  There are lots of words to describes cathedrals, none of which I find very adequate. But I have to use at least one weak word so inspirational will have to do.

We had quite a few choices as to exactly where to conduct the live worship event but settled on the area called the quire - pronounced choir. Carved wooden stalls surround the walled off area near to the high alter.  Although a massive space, the quire has a cozy and somewhat intimate feeling about it. Actually Holy might be a better word to use. Many services over the cathedrals nearly 1000 years have been conducted within the quire so we felt pretty honoured to follow such a great faith history.

Restore [re•store - ri stôr]

Restore is Worshiplanet's newest CD/DVD project.  It is our goal that Christ followers everywhere will use Restore as an evangelistic tool, much like The Door was used.  We pray it reaches the ears of Europeans who have wandered from the church.  And of course it will be used as a resource for worship leaders and their teams.
