As Long As I Live
Higher Praise.Deeper Worship - that is the drive behind the latest CD from Worship Artist Jason Schaarschmidt. Jason is dedicated to bringing fresh praise and worship directly from the presence of God to those who desire a closer relationship with Him. From With My Song - a passionate call to worship - to the soulful Read On, you will be stirred as you experience Higher Praise.Deeper Worship Jason is the Worship Leader at Rhema Fellowship Church, in Bay City, TX 'First, I wanted to be a scientist, then a doctor. Next came saxophonist, pianist, studio musician and rock star. When reality hit, I decided to become a recording engineer, mix engineer, video production tech and graphic designer...all the while pushing a mower and checking groceries at the local store. All of my pursuits failed to turn up gainful employment, so I moved from New York to Texas taking along my lovely (and brilliant) new bride, Katie. I delivered pizza at "The Hut" and Dominoes®, in my efforts to support my new family. Finally, I was offered a position at the church we were attending. I had always said that I would "NEVER want to" lead worship...that was for people who "couldn't make it in the biz." I had a lot to learn. Thank God my Pastor had faith in me! Ten years have gone by and, I still lead worship at Rhema Fellowship Church and I couldn't imagine doing anything else! Somehow all of the things I tried to pursue helped to prepare me for what God has really called me to ("For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you" Jeremiah 29:11) WORSHIP! Katie and I now have Three beautiful children, David (8) Acacia (5) and Caleb (19 mos)!' -Jason -Be sure to listen to the MUSIC SAMPLES, to help you find exactly what you are looking for! ALL of the songs on his new CD "As Long As I Live" were written by Jason and have been used in his home church. You can be sure that these are all new songs...not new arrangements of old songs! We hope you are blessed and drawn into a deeper place of worship as you listen.
