Remember-The Scott Riggan Collection
"God is not distant, and His will for us is not obscured. But He does want us to look, to see, and to follow." Apparently, Scott Riggan doesn't like to be bored. Between a demanding recording, songwriting and touring career, his busy family life and a dynamic local church ministry, you get the impression he barely has time to breathe. He's built a solid following in the U.S., starting with his surprise hit "I Love You Lord," which climbed to #1 nationwide and stayed on the Billboard, R&R and CRW national AC charts for over nine months - no small feat for an indie artist. In addition, Scott's ministry has taken him all over the world - including places like Tanzania and Ghana and, most frequently, China. He has toured as a guest of the Chinese government, produced a Mandarin worship CD, facilitated short term mission trips and served with the underground church. His work in China continues to expand. Scott's latest Top 20 hit song - an inventive cover of Rich Mullins' classic "I See You." - is a duet with friend Jaime Thietten. "I've always loved Rich's writing," explains Scott, "and while 'I See You' is one of his simplest songs, it's still beautiful and profound. It's all about seeking the will of God and finding that He is still revealing Himself to us - both through the world He's created and through His Word. God is not distant, and His will for us is not obscured. But He does want us to look, to see, and to follow." This theme of searching for God and then following His will pervades the songs on Scott's latest CD "Remember: The Scott Riggan Collection" and has also led to a new partnership with international child-sponsorship organization Mission of Mercy, which will allow him to offer his fans the opportunity to impact the world in a significant way. "Most of us feel overwhelmed watching tragedy unfold throughout the world. Sponsoring a child through Mission Of Mercy is a powerful way to touch one child's life and provide him with real help - meeting his physical needs and introducing him to Christ." Seeking for God's direction and then choosing to follow wherever He leads; it's at the heart of every believer's walk of faith. Looking, seeing and following. It looks like Scott won't be dealing with boredom anytime soon.
