Music comes naturally to Buddy Mullins, worship pastor at The Chapel at Crosspoint in Santa Rosa Beach. 

He had an early love for music, nurtured by his mother, a classically trained pianist, and his father, a preacher/worship leader.

"He took our family on the road in evangelism when I was eight years old," Mullins told The Sun. "He placed a bass guitar in my hand and told me to learn how to play it."

Traveling across America, Mullins, his sister and parents held week long meetings at churches — and somewhere during those years Mullins fell in love with "communicating through music."

"Being homeschooled left me many hours to work on singing and playing instruments," he said. "Along with the bass guitar, I also learned to play the piano and acoustic guitar. One of the first songs I learned to sing was one my mother wrote called “This Poor Man Cried,” an upbeat Southern Gospel style song."

One of the first songs written by Mullins was "In Heaven," written when he was only17.

"Since we had been traveling full time since I was 8, I did not really have a town to call home or friends that I saw every day. It spoke about doing the work of ministry and not worrying about settling down until I got home to heaven."
