Among the greatest of Carman's contributions to Christianity at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century is his bringing back a full force, worship revival-not just through song and music but also through dance and drama. Carman's presentations, done with excellence to large audiences, revolutionized the arts and Christian music. Carman has brought much needed encouragement to the arts in church though the introduction of both male and female dancers, drama and simultaneous video and life presentations on stage to unusually large audiences. From Madison Square Garden to national television, Carman's delivery and style were truthful, bold and uncompromising presentations of the gospel.
Today Carman has developed an original concept for ministry to a new generation called "Carman: For Real-For Now" which he is currently touring.
No matter what Carman does, it will be different, never seen before and unusually original. This is exactly what we'd expect from a musical icon. It goes without saying that still, to this day Carman defies description and definition and remains a cultural phenomenon-a true American original.
