Interview with Carman!

How did your music career start?
Carman:
"I started doing drama when I was six and I learned to play guitar at 16. I then played drums and guitar professionally from when I was 17 until I was about 20."

What kind of styles did you play?
Carman:
"Anything I could get worked. Oldies, big band, club, Top 40, country."

You became a Christian at an Andre Crouch concert. What was it about that concert that touched you?
Carman:
"I could feel the spirit of God through what he was doing. I really felt an anointing. He took what was sacred in the church and put it into music I could relate to."

What do you enjoy most about your career?
Carman:
"It's all fun. Ultimately performing live is probably my favorite. That's where you know that what you do is really working."

Why do you offer most of your concerts for free?
Carman:
"So people can have access to the Gospel, to get to the people. It is the same reason Billy Graham offers his crusades free."

Why did you choose "Mission 3:16" as the title of your new album?
Carman:
"It is a combination of the Great Commission and John 3:16, which is the primary Scripture for salvation. This is our mission, to win the lost. I try to do it in a creative way."

What other artists have inspired you?
Carman:
"Anybody to me that does what they do from a sincere heart inspires me. [I like] anybody who is effective. That could be anyone from Bill Gaither to dcTalk. I can get into anything.

"What do you have planned for your career in the next several years?
Carman:
"I really feel the Lord calling me to get much more into TV and movies, that's what is on the horizon."

What do you do in your spare time?
Carman:
"I like to relax with friends and I love to see movies. If I find a movie I like I'll watch it five or ten times until I understand the dialogue and how they deliver it. Hopefully it will show up in my movies. I'm also a great history buff and I love to watch documentaries.

Carman Ministries has its own web site. Do you think there are ministry opportunities on the Internet?
Carman:
"I think that anywhere you can communicate, you can minister."
