the greatest christian video & dance

I’ve shared this before but it’s too good not to share at least yearly. After seeing it again for the 500th time, I am convinced this is the GREATEST christian video & dance. Truth be told, they got some moves but at the same time, it’s eerie but wonderful. Strange but enticing. Awkward but fluid.

Watch…and wait…for the solo dance. It’s priceless.

  2. Becka (BAM) says:

    wow – I especially like the twirls they do with their arms in the air.

  3. Huh? says:

    What in the world is this?

    When was this? I hope this wasn’t anything in the past 10 years.

  4. Assentia says:

    Ew. Pass the barfbag.

    Seriously, those people should get themselves a career and save their church the embarrassment.

  5. DK says:

    What are you people laughing about! The audience loved it and that’s what matters.

  6. blake says:

    what a ripoff.

    completely stole those dance moves from vanilla ice.

    only vanilla can pull those moves off. to the extreme!

  7. Linda says:

    @DK: I think you meant if God loved it, then that’s all that matters 🙂 But if He got as creeped out as I did, then i don’t know

    They’re quite synchronized though, so they got that going for them…

  8. Chris says:

    This is a group called The Way International (cult? maybe from their lit), from a concert done in March 2007 http://www.theway.org/Current/M07/Mar07Hi.html

    There are several other songs posted on that link, but if it’s creep factor you’re looking for, then ‘He’s Our Promised Seed’ is the way to go! http://www.theway.org/Current/M07/Mar07Hi2.html

    This series of videos gives me great hope for longevity as an almost-50 worship band member!!

  9. chad m says:

    if i could only pull that off at a youth event i might win “youth pastor of the year,” if that existed of course! i was wondering why the dude didn’t have a mic to hold until i saw the solo dance…

    look our Napoleon Dynomite…

  10. LT says:

    geez eugene…i never in my wildest dreams expected that performance! hilarious!!! i think quest needs to revamp their moves…or maybe the speaking pastor should do a solo interpretive dance every sunday. please don’t forget to moonwalk tho!

  11. GN says:

    I can’t stop watching this. I’m hypnotized! We’ve gotta do this in church, PE. We could pull it off, I promise! I’d work super hard just for you. Hahahaha…

  12. Sarah H says:

    We’ll be back for Christmas and we’ll be at Quest on the 21st. Do you think you’ll have a performance like that ready?

  13. Melissa says:

    What are you saying? I’m a professional dancer. I could totally pull that off!

    (not that I EVER would!)

  14. eugenecho says:

    @sarah h: we’ll work on it. going to get capt ralph and your mom-in-law involved in that dance.

    @melissa: hey, i have confidence in you. it’s the chism i have doubts about.

  15. leochen says:

    gag! I couldn’t finish watching it!

  16. LG says:

    I just threw up in my mouth a little…but I still have one question…is that guy single???

  17. I don’t get it. Why all the hate? That was awesome! I’m practicing the moves as we speak. That’s gotta be the coolest dance since this one.

    You guys wouldn’t know cool if it bit you in the foot.

    Grace and Peace,
    Raffi

  18. Tony says:

    That was strangely both absolutely amazing and extremely embarrassing at the same time… don’t hate PE! That man was gettin down! For God! Or something.

  19. I am with those who say, “Wow, that’s awful” and also with those who say “If it’s sincere, that’s what matters.” Completely reminds me of the Celebrant Singers (which we ridiculed as the “Celibate Singes” at my Christian college). Have a great day, Eugene and Minhee!

  20. Jim Chen says:

    Hahahaha, just goes to show that GOD is funny.

  21. Rachael Darden says:

    PE!

    Classic! Beautiful! I love this.

    But wait, there’s more. If it’s amazing Christian worship / dancefest you’re looking for, then this is for you:

    It’s not as choreographed, but oh man, the song is priceless.

    And remember: Jesus will zap you anyway he can. Zap. (You’ll understand once you watch the video.

  22. eugenecho says:

    @rachel: yes, i’ve seen that one. that one is nice too but the one featured on this blog entry is from 2007.

  23. Joel says:

    Ha wow, this is…amazing. In a very odd way.
    My favorite part is the deacon drummer in the back. He looks so excited to be there!
    Also, there is some debate as to whether that SonSeed video (that rachael posted) is legit or not amongst the internet.

  24. Randall says:

    …from 2007?

    Excuse me, I believe my jaw just fell into the basement.

  25. katie says:

    funny that all of their songs are about Christ…even though they don’t believe that He is God.

    I want to know how old the blonde girl is…and how they possibly convinced her to be a part of this concert or wear those clothes.

  26. gregwheeler says:

    Holy crap. I just hope that, looking back, those people are suitably embarrassed.

  27. Andy says:

    Lawrence Welk meets The 700 Club?

  28. Holy cow! hahaha. That’s too funny!

  29. Melanie says:

    That did sort of remind me of when I used to watch Lawrence Welk with my Gram.
    They worked really hard – it was cute! (OK, but I don’t have speakers on my computer…)

  30. […] thou shalt not dance…like this I really don’t know what to say.  But you have to watch this video of what I can only call “Thou Shalt Not […] […]

  31. jHong says:

    uhhh i just want to say, for the record, that is NOT what the ‘britney’ mic is for. let’s not get any big ideas.

    and let’s not start any more rap battles either. i felt i had to repent for DEVASTATING my pastor so hardcore the last time. have you recovered yet? i’ve been interceding on your behalf.
    😀

  32. Rebecca says:

    See, we had this discussion as a worship advisory council, when we were talking about how our worship should reflect the Quest vision to be a multiethnic church. But we decided that until we have someone with actual dance moves (not hating on George and Mattsy, but let’s be reasonable) we would stick with the talents that God had given us. Melissa might be able to pull it off, but I dunno about the rest of us.

  33. Rachael says:

    Okay, you win: 2007! Wow.

  34. Bethany says:

    @LG: YES, he is single.

  35. john says:

    i’ve seen this before and every time i watch it i’m left completely speechless…

    @ Rachael: i sort of like the vintage/retro Jesus thing.

    ha~

  36. janowen says:

    just to make you feel a little bit better, The Way International is really a cult I think. While they believe in Jesus, they don’t believe he is the Son of God, or God in any way…….

    Just fyi.

  37. tygersounds says:

    That Joel Osteen can really cut the rug.

  38. laurel says:

    the ___ is the key? i can’t understand what they are saying…

  39. The Chiz says:

    I don’t know PE, I feel a Paradigm Shift coming on!!!! We still have a Flag Dance fund in the budget, right?

  40. […] and busy that I needed to watch this video below again to get me on track.  Many of you expressed your appreciation for the video last […]

  41. OMG – please tell me this was on SNL and not really performed in a church somewhere!

    Make sure to fast forward to 1:50 for the “spiritual climax.” Nothing says spiritual enlightenment like really bad popping & locking…and singing…and outfits…

Father, please bless and protect these Iraqi and Syrian "refugee" children that have already endured so much. Protect their hearts and mind from unfathomable trauma. Plant seeds of hope and vision in their lives. And as we pray for them, teach us how to advocate for them. Amen. "We don't call them refugees. We call them relatives. We don't call them camps but centers. Dignity is so important." -  local Iraqi priest whose church has welcomed many "relatives" to their church's property

It's always a privilege to be invited into peoples' home for tea - even if it's a temporary tent. This is an extended Yezidi family that fled the Mosul, Iraq area because of ISIS. It's indeed true that Christians were targeted by ISIS and thatbstory muat be shared but other minority groups like the Yezidis were also targeted. Some of their heartbreaking stories included the kidnapping of their sister. They shared that their father passed away shortly of a "broken heart." The conversation was emotional but afterwards, we asked each other for permission to take photos. Once the selfies came out, the real smiles came out.

So friends: Pray for Iraq. Pray for the persecuted Church. Pray for Christians, minority groups like the Yezidis who fear they will e completely wiped out in the Middle East,, and Muslims alike who are all suffering under ISIS. Friends: I'm traveling in the Middle East this week - Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan. (Make sure you follow my pics/stories on IG stories). Specifically, I'm here representing @onedayswages to meet, learn, and listen to pastors, local leaders, NGOs, and of course directly from refugees from within these countries - including many from Syria.

For security purposes, I haven't been able to share at all but I'm now able to start sharing some photos and stories. For now, I'll be sharing numerous photos through my IG stories and will be sharing some longer written pieces in couple months when ODW launches another wave of partnerships to come alongside refugees in these areas. Four of us are traveling together also for the purpose of creating a short documentary that we hope to release early next year.

While I'm on my church sabbatical, it's truly a privilege to be able to come to these countries and to meet local pastors and indigenous leaders that tirelessly pursue peace and justice, and to hear directly from refugees. I've read so many various articles and pieces over the years and I thought I was prepared but it has been jarring, heartbreaking,  and gut wrenching. In the midst of such chaos, there's hope but there's also a lot of questions, too.

I hope you follow along as I share photos, stories, and help release this mini-documentary. Please tag friends that might be interested.

Please pray for safety, for empathy, for humility and integrity, for divine meetings. Pray that we listen well; To be present and not just be a consumer of these vulnerable stories. That's my biggest prayer.

Special thanks to @worldvisionusa and @worldrelief for hosting us on this journey. 9/11
Never forget.
And never stop working for peace.

Today, I had some gut wrenching and heart breaking conversations about war, violence, and peacemaking. Mostly, I listened. Never in my wildest imagination did I envision having these conversations on 9/11 of all days. I wish I could share more now but I hope to later after I process them for a few days.

But indeed: Never forget.
And never stop working for peace.
May it be so. Amen. Mount Rainier is simply epic. There's nothing like flying in and out of Seattle.

#mountrainier
#seattle
#northwestisbest Took a train to Busan. Did not encounter any zombies but I was ready just in case.

Busan. First visit to this city (couple weeks ago) and was blown away by its beauty. Also, shocked that it has become the fifth largest containment port city in the world. That's a lot of import and export.
