Hi!

We’re Glowing Moses, a crazy band of Clevelanders on a mission from God (to borrow a line from The Blues Brothers). Each of us has experienced a saving encounter with Jesus Christ. Now, we want to bring that same encounter to the masses through a potent blend of rock n' roll and Holy Spirit power. Paul the Apostle said in 2nd Corinthians that God releases his fragrance through us. We want to take that fragrance to the darkest places by creating fantastic music that everyone can enjoy and touring the nations. The music system today promotes death and destruction. We want to promote the abundant life and victory given to us through the Gospel by being a tangible, healthy display of Jesus. By creating music that can connect with anyone, we can be Jesus in clubs, rock venues, and on stages around the world. We have already seen people saved, healed, and delivered at our shows during our first year as a band, but now we need your help taking this to the world! Would you consider donating today? It would really be great if you could share our fundraiser too. Every like and share helps us spread the word.

About the Band

Cole Harmon, band front man, first felt the call of God to write Holy Spirit infused rock while attending ministry school in Redding, California. Cole and his wife Katie moved to Cleveland Ohio in 2014 to be a part of Bethel Cleveland's inner city ministry. In 2016 Cole met bass player Jake Tetzloff at church and the two started jamming under the name "Glowing Moses."  The name is a nod to the story in Exodus 33, and to Cleveland founder Moses Cleaveland. In April of that year Cole hit it off with Jonathan Conway while on a ministry trip in Ithaca, NY. Shortly afterward, Jonathan moved to Cleveland to drum for the band. In July, they raised money to record their first EP Cosmonaut with producer and pastor Scott Crower. Released in November 2016, Cosmonaut continues to draw acclaim and touch lives. It has received regular airplay in several states on both Christian and secular radio, and has even been picked up by Australian radio. In January 2017 Glowing Moses got first place in a contest for Cleveland's 88.3 The Sting. They recruited church friend Nate Saggio to play the prize winning show at the world famous Cleveland Agora. Nate joined the band full time and they played several more shows before signing with New Vine Media in April.

Our Mission

There are a few main ways we are called to make an impact. Bethel pastor, Bill Johnson, said "The Presence of God is the single most transformational force in existence." As we play, the tangible power of the Holy Spirit is released, creating an atmosphere of encounter with the Living God. Rather than verbally presenting a message on stage, we want to be the message by being transparent, available friends to those who are longing for a deeper connection with Jesus. Instead of living the rockstar life of self destruction, we want to display healthy lives in every way (family, finances, emotional and physical wellness, etc.). We want to direct our God given influence away from ourselves, and back to Jesus. We want the Kingdom to be demonstrated with power. Over the years, the members of the band have seen God heal thousands of people in every type of place imaginable. At every show, we will be ready to pray with people and see Jesus destroy the works of the Devil. Lastly, we believe in the astounding promises in Scripture that all the treasures of Wisdom are hidden in Christ, and he lives inside of us! We know that God wants to use us to display his manifold wisdom (Ephesians 3:10) by creating exceptional works of art.

How We Will Use Your Donation

We are in the midst of a new renaissance. In order to see this take place, we need generous saints to become the new patrons. This is why we are unbelievably excited to be partnered with New Vine Media! New Vine Media is a non-profit that seeks to empower artists like us to make a difference. Rather than be told by the music business what to consume, we have the power to commission great works of art for God's glory. If you have ever found yourself saying "I wish there was more excellent, God honoring music out there," then now is the time to give towards that!  We can't do this without you! We are believing God for $30,844. This will cover the cost of equipment, as well as costs associated with recording. Just like a mission trip, we also need the means to travel the world with our families and demonstrate the kingdom. This is a grassroots movement. Together, we can make a difference!

Update #1

Hey everyone!  Just want to give you a quick update,  

Thank you for your support!  We have had some real needs met for our missions effort in music.  

We were able to update key gear needs.  This Christmas because of you, we received enough to upgrade our pedal boards (guitar effects) drums gear, bass guitar amplification and equipment and more!  THANK YOU!

Also, we were able to pay for travel expenses for events that we played at in NYC, and several other live events.  THANK YOU!

Finally, we have been able to hire a producer and get the studio recording time for our new album underway, as well as a single that we cut last May.  

All of these expenses are generally out of pocket, but because of your support, our families and personal finances are protected from the expense of missions in music, which are substantial.

Like we have said before, we consider our music calling and vocation as our means of connecting with people in the real world being salt and light in dark places.

Blessings from Glowing Moses!
