About Porter's Call

Porter's Call is a ministry of counsel and support for recording artists and their families. Our mission is to provide a welcoming relationship for recording artists on their pilgrimage of life and faith. It is a safe and confidential shelter where questions can be asked and answers explored; a place where broken lives can be restored and healed; a place where God can be discovered and encountered; a place where creative gifts can be deepened and enhanced. | To learn more about Porter's Call, visit their website.


We originally posted this video back in March, but as we get closer to the release of The Shelter (10/5), we thought it may be a fun video to revisit. Enjoy.

Explaining The Shelter: "Call My Name"

As we prepare for the October 5 release of The Shelter, we are sharing specific thoughts on each song from the album. This week we share about track 2, "Call My Name."

Charlie: A prayer that we might know the value of each individual life - and our calling to value dignity and story as we bring God's hope into brokenness. 

Dan: Good community never lets us stay in its safe fold for long, rather it allows our hearts to venture out to harm's way in search of God. 

Stephen: God calling your name means being known by the creator of everything, who redeems us and everything around us in beauty. 

Matthew: To think that God knows us by name has deep and far-reaching implications. To actually hear him use it changes everything.
