In 2003 Chad had a vision. A vision of a band that has a purpose. The mission
of the band will be to serve God, talk about Jesus and create an atmosphere to
examine truthfully your relationship with our Saviour. The Gift was born.
The band has diverse influences, Trace Adkins to Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix
to Hank Williams Sr., P.O.D. to Evanessence, Robert Johnson to Grand Funk
Railroad, Tim McGraw to Lynyrd Skynyrd.
Chad started the band with family members, wife, sister and brother-in-law.
The Gift through personnel changes, has changed from a family band to a
band that is truly family. The band has been successful at accomplishing it’s
mission before it ever played a show and the future holds more victories in the
name of Jesus. God is ever faithful.
The Gift has diversity. The members have a range of musical experience with
various other bands and genres. Also, the members attend various churches.
The music reflects this diversity as the writing is done collectively. The lyrics
are straight to the point and are doctrinally correct .The Gift’s music is hard to
put into a nice neat box. Our diversity and reliance on God’s providence is our
appeal and strength.
The band has played prisons, youth groups and various church functions.
But, any event is possible as long as it falls into our criteria. The only criteria
for where we will play is we have to lift up the name of Jesus and the gospel.
