What I’ve tried to do with AHEAD is capture what the life of faith looks like.
This song comes out of my own wrestling with God. Knowing that he has called me to be a blessing to the world, but wanting to do it according to my plans. And then seeing my plans all fall apart and having God say to me: “OK son, you tried what you had planned. Now let’s see what I have planned to make you a blessing to the world.”

The song was co-written and produced by Grammy award winning engineer Andy Hunt and Grammy-nominated songwriter Jeff Pardo and me. Also at I Tunes.
Your Own Backyard Remix
Unqualified Remix !
The newly remixed version, also includes some new production elements from Grammy-winning engineer and producer Andy Hunt.
Perry says, "As I hear from those who've been impacted by "Unqualified," I keep hearing that God's people feel unqualified to serve Him. I can identify with feeling unqualified. I believe many of Jesus' followers can identify. And the fact is, on my own, I am unqualified; we all are.
But if we hold back in fear because of this great lie of the enemy, then he succeeds in keeping us from bringing the Kingdom into this broken world. Through the poured out life of Jesus, He has qualified us to know Him and to bring His good news to the nations!"
Also available at I Tunes.

Ahead, LaHaie's long-anticipated follow-up to his 2008 debut CD, Endless Fields, continues to expand the singer/songwriter's foray into the realm of guitar-driven, radio-friendly roots rock in the vein of Jason Gray, Andrew Peterson, Bebo Norman and Matt Maher. The new project was helmed by Grammy-winning engineer and producer Andy Hunt (Jaci Velasquez, Olivia Newton-John, Andrew Peterson, Buddy Guy), who encouraged LaHaie to explore new sounds and textures that embellished his bold, Americana style.
