Carpenter's Cross is an ecumenical Christian band located in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area. Their ministry is to share the Good News of life and salvation in Christ with all who hear their music. Members include Kyleigh Pierre (vocals), Dave Nelson (guitar and vocals), Clark McCombs (guitar and vocals), Dan Mish (drums/percussion and vocals) and Kerr Moyer (bass). Carpenter's Cross was formed in 2007 as a cover band but, in 2008, Dave and Clark began composing to feed their need to play challenging and interesting music that tested the creative boundaries of the Christian music genre. To date, the band has written more than 100 original songs which span the genres of rock, blues, pop, funk, and country. The band has released two CD's, "Grace Alive!" (2010) and "Carpenter's Cross" (2014). Their third CD is in production with an anticipated release in late 2016. Being a mission-driven group, Carpenter's Cross has performed in traditional concert venues, but they focus on supporting concerts which benefit local and global causes and charities.
