CMCentral:  How do you hope your music will minister to the church and beyond?

Battistelli:  This record already caught some pretty cool attention in the mainstream world. Not all the songs overtly say “God” in them, which some people may be critical of, but to me, worship is whatever you do to glorify the Lord and the gifts He’s given [you]. … If someone buys the whole album, they’ll get to hear the last song “Time in Between,” which has the most obvious message of the gospel, allowing me to be evangelistic as well as blessing the church.
