Meet Teen Sensation, Double Vision

Guest post by Jennifer Slattery

If you were to ask a dozen teens what they want to be when they grow up, likely you'd hear much of the same answers: rock star, MLB player, Tiger Woods. Most don't realize the immense responsibility such lofty dreams carry. It's like having your life blasted across cyber-space, every frown, every casual word, every loosely-knit association broadcasted, tweeted, and analyzed. Add being a pastor's kid to the mix and you're bound to get a head-ache, but Mason and Micah take it all in stride. (Although I'm going to ask you to pray for them anyway--that God will continue to hold them close and keep them true to Him as doors continue to open and their schedule increases.)

So what's it like being a pastor's son?

Mason says it's a mixed bag. "It has it's ups and downs I guess," he says. "You get some perks but there are some disadvantages such as not getting to watch the Super Bowl."

And yet, spending most of their young life in church appears to have it's advantages, a closer walk with God being the most apparent. Youth camps have perhaps impacted them most.

"The time in my life that I felt closest to God was at youth camp because we had a chance to get away from distractions like cell phones and computers and just get close to God," Mason says.

Micah agrees. "Being at youth camp puts you around a lot of other believers who are a better influence on you."

They in turn, seek to influence others by using the gift God has given them. "By playing Christian music it opens up a lot of opportunities to share the gospel through our music," Mason says.

If you'd like to hear them sing first hand, head down to the Kansas City Market. Once the weather warms up, that's where you'll find them.

This past Monday, they had the opportunity to play for Michael Tait from the Newsboys and DC Talk. Check out this video!

In the meantime, head on over to their website to listen to a few of their videos, check their upcoming schedule or book them for an event.

You can also catch them on Youtube. (I believe this is a Bon Jovi song. Ah, the memories!--thinking of acne cream, puffy hair and eighth grade algebra.)
