Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. Campaigns are projects we are currently working on.

The Blog

Here we are - BadChristian, unfiltered and real. Like it or not, here are our thoughts, struggles, opinions, frustrations, confessions, and theology. Whether it's about politics, the church, sports, sin, or how much we hate Gamecock football, please join the discussion. We welcome all comments, whether you are rude, nice, right, wrong, interesting, or annoying.

Latest From The Blog

Our Music

BC Music is an artist-friendly, new-model record company partnering with hard-working artists to provide creative, forward-thinking consultation and services to promote, release, and connect their music to fans. We aim to embody the honesty and community-minded, blue-collar work ethic of the original indie label, while competitively releasing music that we love in a post-modern music economy.


Honest conversation from Matt, Toby, Joey and guests. We say a lot of stupid stuff for sure, but good or bad, this is how we really talk. We cover everything from Emery road experiences to our family lives and struggles. We also dive head first into deep and personal interviews with our guests.


Tyler Francke from calls in to help the guys sort through some thoughts and arguments about the topic of evolution. This episode features a lot of discussion about science and its purpose, as well as some talk of the other big issue that matters, Brett Favre's wiener.
