I've been playing music
since I was a young boy growing up in Oregon. I grew up in church but really started my journey in Christ in 1970 when I discovered
the presence of the Holy Spirit and the power of intimate worship. I was hooked on worship and started learning and growing
as a musician and worshipper. In 1976, I married my beautiful wife, Ann, and we began our journey together. We were blessed
with 2 wonderful children and now two grandchildren.
The journey has taken Ann and I through several
churches in Oregon and California where I served and various roles from musician to worship leader and even pastoring. My
goal in every circumstance was to serve and to be a blessing to my Lord and His body in whatever role that was. This journey
in worship and ministry has given me some wonderful moments and some huge challenges. But out of it all I am thankful for
the tender love of God that I have known and the revelation of His person to me.
we are involved at Higher Vision Church in Santa Clarita, CA (http://highervisionchurch.com/). I'm also helping on the worship team at Real Life Church in Santa Clarita, CA (http://www.reallifechurch.org/) and Celebrate Recovery ministry that meets there on Fridays. I also help out on the worship team at His Way Community Church
in Santa Clarita, CA (http://www.ehisway.org/). It is a privilege to be a part of several churches and to see what God is doing in worship ministry these days. My role
has changed from being the front person to more of background role in support of those that are developing their gifts and
I have my own business providing construction management and consulting
services (http://www.raconsulting.cc/). I am blessed to be able service the construction related needs of several churches in the Southern California area as well
as other clients. God has blessed the business tremendously for which I am thankful!
CD's are still available!
I released the EP "Forever You Are Lord" in 2010 and it is available
for purchase and download at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/rodshreckengost. The CD can also be downloaded from iTunes.
I am a seasoned worship leader, pastor and songwriter. For
over 30 years, I have been helping people engage the King of kings in congregational praise and worship. I am currently
part of the worship team at Real Life Church in Valencia, CA.
I teamed up
with Musician/Producer/Engineer Joel Hatcher to produce the CD.
My prayer with
May your head be lifted to see the glory and majesty of the Eternal God, the Father, and
His Son Jesus Christ as you listen to and even sing along with these offerings of worship. May the Holy Spirit himself open
the eyes of your heart that you may have even greater revelation of our God and what He has done for us.

Additional notes from me about the songs:
As I Praise Your Name - the song is about what goes on inside when we give praise to the Lord. It's about
focus and being real and at the same time letting go and being free to express yourself.
Soul Longs - this song comes out of deep longing to offer God something in worship even though the greatest offering we
can make doesn't begin to compare with what He has done. In the end, all we can do is worship Him.
You Are Lord - This worship song is meant to be epic because it's about an awesome God and no matter what people
want to believe or what they say He will be Lord forever. He will always be bigger and stronger than anything else in this
