John Mark has become a good friend of St. Andrew's over the years and he always brings the love. He also brings the rock. This June, on his 5th visit to a St. Andrew's venue, he brings a new band and his new Borderland CD that is earning a lot of attention and praise from critics and audiences alike. We are excited and eager about this concert as it finds John Mark at a highpoint in his songwriting and recording career. At the heart of it all, however, is still the same John Mark who consistently defies easy categorization and maintains a worshipful dialogue with the Almighty.

"With a cracking voice and soaring, fuzzed-out amplification, McMillan stands out as a true worship pioneer," says RELEVANT magazine of the three-time GMA Dove Award nominee for “New Artist of the Year," "Worship Song of the Year" and "Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year." For those following the North Carolina-based songwriter's steady rise as an artist, McMillan is hailed for his concise, poetic and often "raw" lyrics, with roots in Dylan, Kerouac and Springsteen, but haunted by the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. His voice, as strong as a live oak, is always welcome in these parts.
