It’s the Season 3 premier! Zack Stachowski and Matt Reichert are joined by composer Tom Booth to talk about his song, “I Will Choose Christ.” There is a lot packed into this episode! Conversion, encounter, vocation, evangelization, and the craziest recording story we’ve heard so far (teaser: Paul McCartney). You’ll also hear the first ever OYH Playlist debut as Tom shares one of the first songs he ever wrote, back when he was 17, never before recorded or published.

So, please open your hymnal to "I Will Choose Christ."
