The David's Tabernacle Project
Kevin Ott -- movie buff, Christian author (represented by Hartline Literary agency), screenwriter, and composer -- earned his B.A. in Music Composition at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2003, where he also studied literature and film scoring. Yale University published Kevin's article "The Most Beloved Chord in Music History, Pt. 1" in their curated music news site through the Yale Music Library, and Kevin is working on two books that explore the theological insights of C.S. Lewis from the perspective of music.
Kevin is also a worship leader who is beginning a project called "David's Tabernacle." In this worship experiment, Kevin will attempt to organize a worship "center" in his church where volunteer "lay people" (not professional worship teams) are participating in worship, intercessory prayer, and Bible reading 24 hours a day, seven days a week in "shifts," slightly similar to how King David set things up in his tabernacle. The vision is simple: create a place where worship, intercessory prayer, and immersion in the Word is happening round the clock, where Christians can come at any time, day or night, to "draw near to God" as James 4:8 exhorts. Although this project will only impact the local church and community where Kevin lives, he is chronicling the journey here at KevinOtt.net in his blog.
