In a career that spans nearly 30 years, Michael Card has authored or co-authored 9 books, recorded over 20 albums, hosted two radio programs, written for a wide range of magazines and started his own magazine.
In everything he does, Card seeks to encourage listeners to join him in his journey to know and be known by God by talking with one another. To that end Card has branched out beyond the music into the various mediums he uses today, all for the purpose of teaching the Word of God, his ultimate desire.
Albert Einstein said that the proof of knowing something well is to be able to explain it simply, and while Card doesn't call himself an expert in any of the topics he tackles, the depth of his knowledge can be appreciated by his ability to then teach about what he has learned. His vision is to edify the Body of Christ around the world by sharing experiences and resources in the context of community in order to help facilitate the growth of smaller and more intimate communities within churches and neighborhoods.
"While I believe our personal lives can be impacted by reading a good book or listening to someone share their testimony on the radio whether on a talk show or in a song, they are all one-sided in nature", says Card. "In my opinion, nothing comes close to the type of life changes that happen when believers get together and share both the Word and their testimony."
