Shine like stars 2004-2015 (The end of an era)

10+ years ago in Irvine, California, shine like stars, was born. Well actually we were called the Union and I would say we were forged more than born.

As a young leader (22) I wielded power like a kid with a bat. Probably couldn’t cause too much damage but…who gave that kid a bat? Over time I became a better leader and pastor but I still have much to learn today.

God has been with us throughout. He has encouraged us and given us purpose and meaning. Throughout these ten years we have experienced many ups and down.


-Breaking down in Oregon, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, California and breaking off a piece of the RV at a gas station in Arizona.

-Losing well loved members.

-Making some awful recordings in my house and office. (My bad)

-Getting our stuff jacked in Memphis.


-Making and enjoying our music videos

-Our last two albums

-opening for 10th avenue north

-opening for audio adrenaline.

-long car rides discussing serious things and quoting stupid things.

-praying for each other.

-being friends when life was good and especially when life was rough.

-the encouragement that has come from so many people we’ve never met or only met once.

There are a million other things to lament and celebrate but ultimately we must celebrate the great opportunity we were given. What a joy! Thank you Lord!

In May the Huntington family will be moving back home to San Diego to start City Life Church. It will not be easy but we believe that God has groomed us for this moment. He has used all of you and our many amazing band members.

Below are the awesome band members who have joined us on this journey:

Jon Batarse

Matt Beusch

Doug Biggs

Victor Cruz

Seth Duncan

Jason Gladding

Roger Huff

Ashley Huntington

Dale Huntington

Joey Menninga

Russ Myers

Thank you and God Bless you,

-Dale Huntington
