Mitchell McVicker in concert
November 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm ESTLove offering
Mitchell McVicker’s career began in 1995 and has since spanned 11 albums and two DVDs, an
appearance as himself and a song in the movie “Ragamuffin”, and over 2000 concerts in 49
states and 13 countries.
His career began with the late, great Rich Mullins. They traveled, performed, wrote, and lived
together. Shortly after a car wreck that took Rich’s life and badly injured Mitchell, the two were
awarded a GMA Dove award for the song “My Deliverer” while Mitchell was still deep in a
lengthy and difficult recovery period.
After his recovery, Mitchell began his own musical journey influenced by Rich in music and
thought, yet distinct in his own voice and style.
Mitchell’s theology is daringly simple—to trust that God’s love washes over and even through us
regardless of our circumstances and regardless of our rights or wrongs. “At this point in my life,”
Mitchell says, “I am setting out to be guided by the Love of God. Being led by love is a lot more
scary, ambiguous, and, yes, grey, than following rules simply for the sake of the rules.”
McVicker’s most recent album, The Acceptance of And, was released April of 2018. His new
album is both a continuation and new embarkation for Mitchell. McVicker, who has gone by
Mitch over the span of his career to date, released The Acceptance of And under his given
name, Mitchell McVicker. Mitchell returned back to a more raw and live sound while recording in
Portland, Oregon for the first time ever. He wrote songs about living in the “and” of life.
“So much of the time, we approach life as an either/or situation. Often, we think, either I am up
or down, lost or found, sinner or saint. We think, either we are living in the light or the dark,
either we are living in faith or doubt.
“But we have been graced with life and love. So I think God meets us in the ‘and’…where life
and love are lived out. I have come to the conclusion that in the same breath, I am up and
down, lost and found. At the same time, I am in the dark and the light. In the same steps, I live
out fear and trust, I am sinner and saint, I am faithful and doubtful. Dare I say, God gives us the
‘and’. We have no greater example of living in the ‘and’ than Jesus…who is God and man.
“I hope the songs remind us that God’s all-encompassing love connects with us in all situations
and through every circumstance. Jesus, is, and call us to be, fueled by grace and led by love.
So I think calculating, measuring, and keeping track of our actions, and everybody else’s
actions, no matter how good or bad, just clutters the space in which love moves.”
The second half of Mitchell’s 2019 tour is presently being planned as we speak. The 2019
spring tour is 40 concerts in 20 states. Stay tuned for the next chapter.
