Video Launch & Concert Giveaway!

Good Father 1

This week, we are thrilled to participate in the video launch of Chris Tomlin’s beautiful worship song, Good, Good Father and share details on how you could win a fabulous prize package that includes tickets to see Chris Tomlin in concert and the opportunity to meet him in person!

Good Father 2

Most of you are already fans of Chris Tomlin – one of Christian music’s top artists, worship leaders, and songwriters – with sales of over 30 million records to date.

Chris describes how he came up with the song Good, Good Father:

We all have a picture of who we think God is. When we get down to the foundation of what we believe, the truth is that God is exactly who He says He is — a good, good Father.

You can learn more about the song by watching the video Good, Good Father – Story Behind The Song.

Now, without further ado, here is the new song and video from Chris! You can purchase Good, Good Father on iTunes.

Chris is also hosting an amazing giveaway where one lucky winner will receive:

  • A Flyaway for 2 to see Chris Tomlin at the closest Worship Night In America stop near you
  • 2 Meet & Greet Passes
  • Hotel Accommodations

  4. Chris Tomlin is one of my family’s favorite Christian artists. I LOVE this new song, which also reminds me of Jesus’s parable of the prodigal son. (We just read it in church today, so it’s fresh in my mind.) Thank you for sharing it in your blog. Blessings, my friend!

    What a wonderful voice this gentleman has and the tune he sings is very heart moving. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful tune with us. Have a great week and enjoy our Spring like weather. Gotta run and spoil my dog a bit she got run over by a car the other day and she just looks sad. We think maybe her hip is badly bruised… Vet tonight. It was a hit and run. I hate people like that. Our poor baby is so sad… hugs, Marie
