Gather Us

Gather Us (1998)

This was my first home recording done on an analog four track and it features John Vaeth on bass, mandolin and backing vocals as well as the guitar track on “Gather Us”. This was recorded on the back porch of our apartment in Chicago and if you listen carefully you can hear the train in the background of a couple tracks. Despite the fact that it was recorded analog, this recording doesn’t sound too bad.

 

Who is Phillip Telfer? What is the core of my identity? I’m a child of God and a disciple of Jesus Christ. What you do in not as important as who you are. But in case you’re wondering about what I do, here you go…

Husband & Father: Mary and I have been married for 27 years and blessed with 4 children, one fantastic son-in-law, and a precious grand-daughter.

Minister: I serve as a pastor by day (and night) and I’m the founder and director of the nonprofit ministry Media Talk 101

Coffee Nut: When I’m not serving the flock, I’m serving good, home roasted coffee to family and friends.

Woodworker: Another hobby that has “turned” into a small family business is woodturning. Working with wood a little bit each week keeps me sane in this big world of personalities.

Film Festival Director: Since that didn’t seem like enough on my plate I also started the annual Christian Worldview Film Festival and Filmmakers Guild.

Author: When there’s time to spare, I love to take  a Pilot G2 gel pen and a pad of paper and write! I used to pour a lot of creative writing energy into music, and now that has shifted to the fun of writing a novel.
