Karen Wheaton and The Ramp

2013-04-10 20.21.23It was a blessing getting to meet with and spend a considerable amount of time with Karen Wheaton – a woman I consider a mother in the faith to me. Before I knew anything about her incredible youth ministry, the Ramp (“youth ministry” is putting it lightly – I’d call it more a revival academy), I clearly remember back in 2002… 2003 – my church at the time, Christ Fellowship, did the choral song, “Lord You’re Holy.”

If you’ve heard the song, you know what I’m talking about. Powerful anthem declaring Who God is. It never failed to filled that place with explosive praise. I remember asking worship leader, Michael Neale, about who originally sang the song. He directed me to Karen Wheaton and her album Church. One listen and I was completely hooked.

Then, in 2006, she released an incredible album called Believe. The songs were modern, edgy and prophetic – from Charlie Hall’s “Holy Visitation” to Jason Upton’s “Lion of Judah.” To this day, I contend that Believe is one of the most powerful, anointed worship projects available on the market (and amazingly, it is was not recorded live).

Karen lives what she sings and preaches. I believe she will go down in the halls of history as one who dared to sow her life into the greatest youth revival of our day.
