May God Bless,
One Step Closer
Thank you guys for a great experience at Weekend of the Cross. Y’all were great, both in leading worship and getting involved with the youth. You guys will be a blessing to anyone who books y’all.
I recently organized a Back to School Event for a church in Quitman, MS and hired One Step Closer to play for our high school students and children. A professional and very talented band, I wasn't surprised to find that OSC delivered a phenomenal show. From hard-rocking numbers to a lighter acoustic set sandwiched between other songs, their performance rivaled that of most other bands I've seen in recent memory. What was most surprising, though, was the way in which the band connected with our students. I've hired many bands, and most play their shows and leave. OSC, however, was willing to talk with our students for lengthy periods, take photos with everyone, and sign autographs. A top notch band, with top notch people, doing top notch work. Five Stars.
I am the organizer of Rally to the Son in Lucedale MS. These guys came in and headlined are rally. We had 4 other groups playing, most youth bands, these guys offered advice and encouragement to the younger groups. The ministry is awesome. Even through the rain delays, heat and humidity the guys are a class act.
What to Expect
One Step Closer is a group of guys that love the Lord and will deliver the word of God through music! We each have a passion for music and reaching people. Our mission field is to further the kingdom of God and share his truth. We range from a contempary style worship, to older hymns, to rock. We give you the option to chose whether you want a worship service or a concert, or both. We can combine the two! We will work with anyone to produce the best worship experience possible. God is our motivation and Leader. We would love to worship with you!
We are a Christian band from the small town of Jackson, Alabama. We got together in June of 2012 and we have been growing ever since. What started as something that we wanted to try quickly evolved into something that we were passionate about. We all live close together and share a passion for Jesus Christ and the gift he has blessed us with. Our goal is to continue to lead worship and make music that will reach all audiences and deliver a strong message of the Gospel and God's love. Music has become our strong hold. Music is a great and powerful tool that effects everyone that it comes in contact with. We strive to create music that will encourage, empower, and proclaim Gods word. To us music is more than words on a page. Our music is our testimony. It is the absolute truth of Gods light that is shining through us. As long as we are able, we will proclaim His name and share His message to further the Kingdom of God. We thirst to see lives changed, souls saved, and glory to be brought on His name. We encourage you to share One Step Closer with your friends and family. The more people we reach the more opportunities we have to spread the word! @OSCloser169
Our name One Step Closer:
The name One Step Closer stems from none other than the word of God. When the time came for us to decide on a name, we turned to the Bible. While we were reading we came across the verse Proverbs 16:9. Which states: A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. (NKJV).
