Biography

The Christian based artist known as Sacrifice has been in the works for many years. The front runners Tom Arseneault & Michael Sheehan, originally from the New England area, relocated to Baton Rouge in the early 90's. After their proper introduction to the Lord JESUS and the truth of His Gospel, their lives changed dramatically. Tom began to sing; Mike began to write; and through a series of God steps & 15 yrs, they found themselves in Nashville amongst some of the best in the music business to birth their debut album titled "Guide Me." In the midst of all this taking place, Sacrifice was established, AKA SacrificeMinistries. Joining their hearts and talents with Mike & Tom are four men who share the same vision of impacting lives for Christ through the music ministry. They are Matt "Riff" Fertitta, Jeff Pendergrass, Ralph Walker and Jordan Kaiser. All members have been involved in local church praise & worship for years. To give our lives is the least we can offer Christ as He first layed His life down for us. It is our reasonable service and our privilege to offer ourselves a living "Sacrifice."
We have always strived to offer different sounds and styles from one song to the next. This prevents the listener from getting tired of the same sound throughout the album and also offers something for everyone.
We never imagined that we would have been afforded this opportunity to record our original music professionally and be able to offer it to others. We are more ministers at heart than musicians. To be able to entertain someone musically has its short-term benefits but simply cannot compare to the ministering of life to someone who, at that very moment in their personal life, needs it most. This is our passion and the future of Sacrifice. As with every servant of God, our hearts are fulfilled when we minister life to the hearer, whether that is accomplished through the preaching of the Word from the pulpit or to a complete stranger at a local coffee shop.

Heaven's Best

HEAVEN’S BEST
Words and music by Michael C. Sheehan

JOHN STOOD IN THE WILDERNESS FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE
SAYING BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES AFTER ME
FOR I'M JUST A MAN NOTHING MORE NOTHING LESS
I'M TO PREPARE THE WAY FOR HIM HEAVEN’S BEST

THE DAY WOULD COME WHERE HE WOULD ARRIVE
AND THE VOICE OF HEAVEN THROUGH THE PARTED SKY
SAYING THIS IS MY SON IN WHOM I’M WELL PLEASED
HE WILL SACRIFICE HIMSELF AND RETURN UNTO ME

HE WOULD BE THE BRIGHT & MORNING STAR
DRAWING MY PEOPLE FROM BOTH NEAR AND FAR
BRING THEM TO THIS PLACE OF MERCY AND GRACE
WHERE I COULD BE THEIR GOD
AND SATURATE THEM IN LOVE
AND IN ALL THINGS IT’S JESUS WHO BRINGS
ALL OF HEAVEN’S BEST

MARY AWOKE ONE NIGHT TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE SAY
YOU WILL BARE A SON A KING A SLAVE
HIS VOICE FULL OF POWER AND HIS LIFE FREE OF SIN
HE’LL REMIND YOU OF MY LOVE FOR YOU ONCE AGAIN

THE DAY WOULD COME THAT IMMACULATE BIRTH
AND THE THREE WISE MEN WOULD BEGIN THEIR SEARCH
FOR THIS SAVIOUR THIS CHILD WHO’S UNLIKE THE REST
HE’S STRAIGHT FROM THE FATHER... HE IS HEAVEN’S BEST

HE WOULD BE THE BRIGHT & MORNING STAR
DRAWING MY PEOPLE FROM BOTH NEAR AND FAR
BRING THEM TO THIS PLACE OF MERCY AND GRACE
WHERE I COULD BE THEIR GOD
AND SATURATE THEM IN LOVE
AND IN ALL THINGS IT’S JESUS WHO BRINGS
ALL OF HEAVEN’S BEST
