I was working in Toledo, Ohio at YESFM when I learned that Rich Mullins had passed.  I met him only one time at a performance in Columbus, Oh…I think it was at Grace Bretheran Church in the North suburban community of Worthington, OH.  He seemed to be a no-nonsense but still very pleasant guy.

Later when I was working in Nashville for a record label he and I said “hey” to one another!  And that was my brush with Rich Mullins, thing is he has given the church and yet to be church for generations some real treasures in songs like Awesome God, If I Stand, Elijah and more.

The video is of a concert performance of the song “Screen Door” which is a fun song we used in youth ministry too.
