NEW Podcast Episode with Darlene Zschech

On today's episode, Darlene Zschech, globally-acclaimed composer, worship leader, pastor, author and speaker, spoke with fellow worship leader, and our Secuencias.com Brand Manager, Christy Colmenares. They speak on Empowering Women in Ministry and what anchoring your identity in Christ through cultivating a culture of encouragement looks like. 

She shared with us how leading worship as a woman looked different in certain parts of the world, but that whatever obstacles she faced, she always reminded herself that she was ultimately there to serve and praise. She declares: “There’s nothing about inequality that pleases the heart of God” and that the Church has a long way to go, but we’re on the move.

Michael W. Smith | Worship Forever (Live)

“The Worship record was a special one for me. From the recording live in Lakeland, Florida – to the release on 9/11– the day our nation was attacked. I’ve seen God use those songs and that music in ways I could have never dreamed."

Alexander Pappas | IDAHO EP

Pappas' approach is edgy, energetic, and nostalgic fused with inspirational, pop, and alt-rock beats."There are songs of worship and songs of heartbreak; these are the songs in the middle, of the now and not yet."

UPPERROOM | Love Note

Many of the songs from Love Note were written during the fall of 2020, a season of consecration, repentance and hunger for our UPPERROOM church community. We devoted ourselves to the Lord, in the midst of personal, corporate and national pain, and our songwriters began to write and sing the season of devotion. During the spring of 2021, our church body met daily for prayer and worship during a 40 day corporate fast and our team arranged and recorded these songs live at our prayer and worship services. 

Vertical Worship | How Good Is He

"'How Good Is He' is a simple song of thanks to God for who He is and what He’s done. When we sit at a table we often give thanks or thank those who have prepared the meal for making it. Often the words don’t need to be many, but HGIH describes to the giver what we’re thankful for being given.”

Red Rocks Worship | Echo Holy (In Studio)

“It just does something to the soul to imagine millions of angels falling on their face before the throne of Majesty. We hope to hear each of your stories as you continue to encounter Jesus!”

SEU Worship | Walk With You

"I wrote 'Walk With You' after a long night staying up with my newborn son. The following morning I was spending time with the Lord in prayer, and found myself singing the verses and chorus of the song. In every chapter of life, God has proven himself faithful. Whether I was full of fear, on the run or battling bitterness, God’s love never gave up on me. I can’t help but want to be closer to a God who loves like this." -Dan Rivera

NEW RELEASES | Week of 10/4/21

Hillsong Worship | Never Walk Alone 

“I have never walked alone/I’ve never been abandoned,” the lyrics sing confidently, “Every hour, every minute, You have been there.”  The track, in its essence, celebrates the unwavering guidance and steadfast faithfulness of a loving God. This recent release follows the group’s latest single “Hope of The Ages” featuring Hillsong’s Reuben Morgan and two-time GRAMMY nominated Cody Carnes. 

Evan Craft | Holy Ground

“We started out the year releasing pop music but I also want to lead people to a place of worship and to experience God in a very real way.” Evan invites you to worship in God's presence while reminding us that He has made a way for us, torn the veil, and wants us in relationship with Him. Each song offers a moment to reflect on His greatness and welcomes you to enter His Holy Ground.

Christine D'Clario | All That Remains

Her new full-length album All That Remains is available now in English and Spanish! "I just can’t contain my emotion and gratitude to God the great blessing to still have life and a voice to worship him another day!"

for KING & COUNTRY | For God Is With Us

“We originally penned ‘For God Is With Us’ as we were working on our Christmas record,” shares Joel Smallbone. “We started writing this song from the perspective of a baby boy, and then into adulthood and the great sacrifice of Jesus and then how it impacted humanity. And somewhere along the way, we looked back and Luke and I called one another and said, ‘Hey, maybe this is not just devoted to Christmas. Maybe this is a thought, an idea, that could carry with us through the whole year."

Maryanne J George | Not Just Stories

This EP contains 6 songs in total, 2 of which are extended/spontaneous versions capturing the essence of a Heaven-on-Earth “forever-worship.” This project is a combination of deep-felt worship and an uplifting praise song, all of which are suitable for congregational singing.

Jon Reddick | Keep Me Near + In The Room

"In The Room" reminds us of God's presence, and on "Keep Me Near," Reddick has said: "My prayer is that it helps refocus our eyes back on our King. When we’re looking “at” Jesus-it reminds us how to look more “like” Jesus."

Francesca Battistelli | God Is Good

“A few years ago, a good friend of ours went through a devastating loss. I really wanted to write a song that would honor what he went through and really speak to that idea of how tragedy affects our lives, because at one point or another, it does affect all of us. If the last year-and-a-half has taught us anything, it’s that we’re not immune to difficult times,” Battistelli shares.

NEW Podcast Episode: Finding Purpose in the Process with Joel Houston

Joel Houston, world-renowned songwriter and worship leader of Hillsong UNITED, reminds us that our purpose is “in the dig” and “in the search” of the creative process in Episode 2 of our new season of The Worship & Technology Podcast.

Joel speaks to his hope of reaching the person who’s lost faith with the songs God has blessed him with, how success can be an enemy to art, the missional aspects of all the projects under Hillsong, and more. We hope this conversation reminds you of the purpose we find in both the creative process and in the sanctification of the faith journey. Listen now

Bethel Music | Homecoming

"Inspired by the parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15, we believe Homecoming is an invitation to return to who we truly are as sons and daughters." - Bethel MusicHomecoming, the new album from Bethel Music, invites listeners to return to the One who waits with open arms, ready to embrace His children with complete love

Chris Tomlin | Emmanuel: Christmas Songs of Worship

“When it came time to do this album, I wanted to capture songs that remind us of the true meaning of Christmas. Emmanuel, God with us. If there was ever a time that we needed to be reminded that God is with us, it is now and that is the spirit behind this third Christmas record. My prayer is that God uses these songs to touch lives for generations and reminds us that He is close to us.”

Alexander Pappas | IDAHO - EP (2 singles)

 "A Beautiful Life" was written by Pappas, Aodhan King, Benjamin Hastings, and Michael Fatkin, who also produced the track. “Sometimes we need a reminder that life is indeed beautiful. If it wasn't, we'd get saved and *whip* straight to heaven. Instead, there's a life to be lived, relationships to be built and beauty to behold. I hope this song would serve as a reminder of all that is ahead for you.” “‘K.O.' is a call to action and a key to contentedness," Pappas explains. "Despite our present circumstances, we’re all equipped to move forward, but allowing yourself the understanding resolution doesn’t always happen overnight. The difference is setting your sights on the destination and knowing it begins with taking the first step. Today that might be telling yourself you’re gonna be OK.”

Jonathan Traylor | I'm Here For You

“I pray that these songs encourage us, allow God's spirit to work within us, and remind everyone of the truth of His love.” The timely 6-song EP speaks to the reality of God’s presence with us and the importance of our connections with one another.

Chris Renzema | Get Out of the Way of Your Own Heart

“In the song, ‘Get Out of the Way of Your Own Heart,’ the lyric of the bridge encourages: Take yourself down off the line, give yourself a little grace. A lot of this new album is me trying to express and process feeling a little subpar and trying to allow myself to feel OK and to be a little nicer to myself.”

NEW Podcast Episode: Do We Love Music More Than Jesus?

We are so excited to kick off Season 3 of The Worship & Technology Podcast with this conversation on why Music is Great, but Jesus is Greater with Bob Kauflin! Author of Worship Matters and True Worshipers, and pastor at Sovereign Grace Ministries since 1985, Bob reminds us to live in the good of what we’re singing about; to intuit what is happening in the souls of one’s congregation.

Rather than focusing on the technical nuances of worship, he encourages us to focus on what we can do to encourage the clear vision of the work and the words of Christ. We think you'll find this conversation that Kristian coins "a master class" very convicting. Listen everywhere!
