CRESTVIEW — Mark English, Lifepoint Church's regular pastor, is taking March 2 off and letting Christian recording artist Jeff Deyo fill in.

"He will be performing and delivering a message at both services that morning," Jason Hall, the church's worship minister said.

Deyo, a Minnesota native, plans to deliver a service that will inspire and help others better connect with their faith. 

"Most of the time, the things I share come straight from the Bible and are meant to help people open their eyes to how amazing God is," he said. "I believe if they can really begin to see him for who he is, they will surrender that much more of their lives to him."  

Deyo performs Gospel music at churches and worship events across the country, but many people may recognize him as the contemporary Christian band Sonicflood's first lead singer.

Deyo's contributions helped Sonicflood win a Dove award for the best praise and worship album in 2000. "Sonicpraise," the band's second album, earned a Grammy nomination for best Gospel rock album.

Deyo left the band in 2000 and released several solo worship albums with hits like "More Love, More Power" and "Bless the Lord." "Moving Mountains," his fifth worship album, debuted in 2012.
