If you know anything about Christian rock music in the last 15+ years, then you might be familiar with Chad Johnson. His story is an incredible one. Through his love for music, Chad started a record label and quickly signed on a few bands. He eventually garnered the attention of Tooth and Nail Records, who offered him a position in the company. It was a great gig, where he worked with bands such as Underoath, Anberlin, and many others. But Chad felt pulled toward something more. His real passion wasn’t the music itself, but the people – the singers and musicians. They are a group of people who get lots of attention and love from adoring fans and the media, but are in desperate need for real connection and mentoring.
Chad is one of the founders of Come and Live, an organization whose vision is to create a worldwide mission community that will provoke and inspire Christian artists to use their God-given creativity to revolutionize the world for Jesus. Come and Live is a worldwide, face to face, and online community committed to impacting the world with the love of Jesus using art and music. Chad and the team at Come and Live are seeking to disciple, teach and befriend artists and musicians to help them navigate the sometimes difficult landscape of the music industry. Chad’s journey will bring clarity to your own story, and reveal to you how following your true passion puts you in front of the people you are called to help.
