Mitch McVicker @ Salem-Cass United Methodist Church
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am

Mitch McVicker will bring his Dove award-winning music to Findlay for a 10 a.m. show Sunday, Sept. 23, at Salem-Cass United Methodist Church.

The show is free, but tickets are required. They can be picked up at the church, 4699 Hancock County 236; or Findlay Christian Book and Gift Store, 438 Tiffin Ave.

With 10 albums, a DVD and over 1,800 concerts in 49 states and 13 countries to his name, McVicker began his career in 1995 as support for Rich Mullins, a Christian musician who wrote the song, “Awesome God.”

The two traveled, performed, wrote and lived together before a car accident killed Mullins and badly injured McVicker. While McVicker was still deep in a lengthy and difficult recovery period, the two were awarded a Dove award for the song, “My Deliverer.”

While McVicker’s style is distinct from Mullins, he acknowledges Mullins’ influence on his life, with a pursuit of simplicity and a desire to say real things with his music.

He is touring on the heels of his latest album, “The Acceptance of And,” which he describes as a gradual shift and refinement of his sound.

McVicker said he appreciates the intimate vibe that goes with the larger-than-life sound a church can provide for music, adding that audience energy is what makes a concert special.

Those who attend the show can witness McVicker’s unique stage show, which bandcamp.com has described as “MacGyver meets Mark Twain.”
