LEARN MORE ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Cami Maree's beautifully haunting voice, profound lyrics, and creative melodies linger long after you've heard them. She sings and performs with a contagious passion and conviction that moves you to the depths of your being.
Her energetic style is a unique blend of 90’s alternative, modern rock, a little bit of pop, and soul/blues/gospel. Whether it be a solo performance of Cami Maree commanding her guitar while kicking a bass drum, or fronting a full band, she lures you in with her sultry voice, and powerful vulnerability. You are guaranteed to fall in love with this beautiful soul.
After being diagnosed with a rare, incurable liver disease in the spring of 2010, Cami Maree turned to songwriting as an outlet for coping with her daunting reality. With the youngest of her four children a newborn, this news of her diagnosis weighed heavily on her heart. Songwriting became the glue that held her together through this heartbreaking time. Cami Maree’s music career began with leading worship and branched out to playing public shows, recording an album, a countrywide tour. Now in Colorado Springs, Cami Maree is ready to release her first Christmas EP as well as a new EP coming in January 2023.
Award winning violinist, author, and entrepreneur, Christopher Vuk received his B.M. Summa Cum Laude on scholarship from Berklee College of Music. His former experience is inclusive of various fields, however, all connected to the world of music and education. Currently, Christopher is the CEO of the Rock and Roll Daycare with 5 locations in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Prior to Rock and Roll, Christopher founded contemporary music school, School of Groove, in the heart of Cambridge, whose philosophy was centered around giving its students and musicians opportunities to form bands and perform in front of live audiences on the stages of popular jazz and rock clubs in Boston. While running the music school, Christopher created the Boston Music Festival and Cambridge Arts Festivals which gathered over 100 bands together to give them a platform to share their music and talent with the people of Boston.
For ten years Christopher served as the Music Director of the Boston String Quartet. Several signature projects of the Quartet included the Xibus World Orchestra, which combined music and education, inspiring over ten thousand middle and high school musicians across the country to push the envelope of traditional orchestral repertoire, introducing them to the genres of world fusion, jazz, Latin, rock, and Celtic music.
ABOUT PULPIT ROCK
7 Things to Know About Us
Regardless of where you are on your spiritual journey, it’s our desire to help you along the way. We admit we don’t have all the answers, but we invite you to join us.
Here are some things you should know about Pulpit Rock…
1. We love God.
We hope that by being around us, you will see how deeply you are loved by Christ and you will fall in love with Him too.
2. We value courageous vulnerability.
We are messy. Life is messy, so there’s really no getting around it. You’re not going to find any perfect people here. But real? Oh yeah… we can do real. We don’t hide our failures. Instead, we share life together by creating transparent, life-giving relationships.
3. Our desire is for everyone to live free of shame.
We want to be a safe place where your messiness can be shared and known. At Pulpit Rock, you will be loved more – not less – for opening up.
4. We value diversity.
We respect the fact that there are people who genuinely love Jesus on both sides of issues. Labels unnecessarily divide people and distract us from the gospel and we do our best to stay away from them.
5. We live in the reality of our new identity in Christ.
We do not define ourselves as “saved sinners,” but as fully redeemed. We are learning to live out the reality of who God says we are – deeply loved, totally forgiven and free from shame.
6. God put us in the heart of the city to be the heart of the city.
We are not located where we are by accident. We love Colorado Springs and know that our place in the center of it means we have a major role to play in reaching the city with the love of Christ.
7. We feel called to love the world.
One of our desires as a church is to extend the heart and the hands of Christ to those in need, whether on our doorstep or on the other side of the world. We want everyone to know the infinite depths of God’s love.
We know that there are a lot of empty promises within Christianity – and these often lead to disappointment and disillusionment… with God. Or with Christians. Or with the church.
Our hope is that at Pulpit Rock we can offer you a safe place to be you. As you are. We want to be a place where there’s no need to pretend you have it all together. A place where you can be open about your doubts and struggles, heal from your wounds and discover the astounding reality of how Christ views you.
This is the heartbeat of Pulpit Rock.
