Strangely, I don’t recall the first time I met Cliff Cline. I had heard Cliff sing/play at a couple of churches, and at a friend’s wedding, before I ever got to know him. At the recommendation of a mutual friend, Cliff and I had lunch at ‘On the Curve’ in Mississauga in the Fall of 2007. Aware of his expertise in leading music, I wanted to run an idea by him—in its raw form, I wanted to float out the vision which would eventually become The Well.
Cliff did more than give helpful feedback; he stepped up to the plate. Cliff offered to coordinate the music program of The Well for a period of one year.
It’s not unusual for me to seek out a ministry colleague for lunch, but it is rare when a single lunch leads to the birth of a substantial ministry AND a strong friendship. We’ve had many lunches since that day, and I am increasingly thankful for my friendship and association with Cliff Cline.
Cliff is a hugely gifted musician, a devoted Christian, and a loyal friend. Our partnership in leading/serving at The Well has been seamless. Sunday by Sunday, the musicians at The Well hit a ‘homerun’. Thanks Cliff.
You can track Cliff’s music ministry via cliffcline.com, and this video (below) will give you an introduction to his immense talent.
The Well is in its 6th month. We’re a modest-sized gathering of people looking to better understand what it means to follow Jesus. I’d love for you to be a part of that. Join us at The Well one Sunday as we seek to Drink Life.
