FROM TED ABOUT RICH MULLINS: "I never did get to talk to Rich face to face. I never wanted to approach him like a fan asking for an autograph. I admired his musicianship, his critical thinking, and his walk with God. He reminded me of Keith Green and I idolized both men. Their abandonment, compassion, and rebellion all spoke to who I wanted to be and what my relationship to God would be like. I believe Rich saw into who God is, made it simple and profound, and gave it to us whether we liked it or not. I was and still am greatly influenced by the man who was Richard Wayne Mullins. I miss him dearly."

FROM DAVID ABOUT RICH MULLINS: "Rich Mullins was there when I was a brand new baby Christian. Jesus saved me and pointed me in the direction of Christian music. At that time, altar calls at concerts were not uncommon. The Holy Spirit was moving powerfully. I bumped into Rich along the journey. His music was at the top of my desert island CD's list and I still include him at the top of my songwriter list. Rich was extremely amiable and allowed easy access. My photo of him perched on the back of his favorite pickup "Ruby" is a prized photograph of mine. I shot it on black & white film and hand-colored it. It's a one-of-a-kind image. Rich's heart for Jesus always choked me up and encouraged me to continue this difficult but treasured journey following Jesus. His death was a terrible loss to me but the joy will be joining him on the other side."ˆ
