This site was started in July of 2000, to fill a void in the area of Christian tab sites on the internet. There were several decent sites out there, but there was more could be done to serve the Christian guitarist community. Thus, Christian Guitar Resources was born! This site is here to help you help each other.
Also, here is a neat thread on our message board with more about the history of the site, including old screenshots of the main site and message board.
Paul Kim - Webmaster
I aquired the site in April 2007. I am 32 years old, I was born in Baltimore, MD and currently live in Dallas, TX. I've been playing guitar for a little over five years, but I'm still a novice guitar player.

Leboman - Super Moderator
I came to CGR in 2003, after accidentally stumbling into the Newsboys forum. I have served as moderator in Journals, Marriage & Parenting, Secular Music and Christian Music for quite some time. I have a B.S. in Biblical Exposition from Mid-Atlantic Christian University and am currently contemplating getting a M.A. in Religious Studies. I live in North Carolina with my wife (also a CGR member) and our three children. I help lead worship in my home church and often fill the pulpit when the pastor is gone. My most recent ministry was as lead church planter for a church in Pearlington, Mississippi. My wife and I are considering another church plant sometime in the future.
Rainer - Super Moderator
In 2003, he got his first electric guitar, and called upon CGR in his quest to make some excellent music out of it. He was the moderator of the Guitars forum, and has since moderated a multitude of other forums. He currently attends the University of Washington in Seattle, WA. He spends his days making photographs and visual art, going to classes, and cooking up a mean ribeye. He spends his nights rocking out around the city of Seattle.
Gustin - Super Moderator
I joined CGR in 2003 after using the tab section of the site for the for a couple years. I started out helping CGR as an Artist Administrator for the tab section and eventually moved on to moderating in the forums. In 2007, I moved to Nashville, TN to go to school for training as a recording engineer. I currently work at a studio recording voice overs and running live sound for concerts and various events, and I'm also active in the worship music industry.
Who knows? So far, our growth has been astounding, and that is a big benefit to you. As more people visit the site, more people send in songs, which helps everyone out. I'm adding new songs to the site pretty much every day, and I'm always working on new ideas for the site. If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please let us know.
