David Funk | Touch of Heaven / Alabaster Heart

David Funk, Bethel Music’s newest worship leader, led the song Touch of Heaven / Alabaster Heart (Live) at church one Sunday night. It ended up being an anointed, holy moment. God showed up, and something significant happened in the room.

As Funk’s first official single with Bethel Music, “Touch of Heaven / Alabaster Heart (Live)” introduces him in his element. He is passionate about vertical praise and keeping the main thing the main thing. This song invites the listener to surrender again, leaving everything at the feet of Jesus.

Austin Stone Worship | Something Greater

Something Greater from Austin Stone Worship is from their EP collection of new and old songs aimed at preparing all of our hearts to celebrate the beauty of our risen King Jesus this Easter!

"Little did we know how much we would need a song to remind us of something better than the best the world can offer. We learned how to live under the looming shadow of the COVID-19 pandemic. The deep wounds of racial injustice were exposed again and again. The political landscape became increasingly divided and hostile. There was, and still is, a constant reminder that we desperately need something greater. In the gospel we have the glorious truth that our something greater is not some thing but someone. And He’s stronger than the grave." 

Red Rocks Worship | Now Here, Never Leave

Two new singles from Red Rocks Worship are now available! Now Here is a faith declaration that manages the tension of experience and expectancy in its very title. When Jesus met darkness in the world, it’s only response was to run. Because Jesus was the fundamental manifestation of God’s presence and personhood, everything contrary to that expression had no choice but to yield. 'Now Here' is meant to embolden every believer that the incarnate Christ is amongst us.

Written initially for youth students, Never Leave was intended to be a reminder that the presence of God is a constant companion. Just as the psalmist discovered that neither the highest heights nor deepest depths would hide them from God’s abiding company, "Never Leave" situates the heart in this same assurance. 

The Worship Initiative | Vol. 24

"The Worship Initiative, Vol. 24 is our second-ever live album, recorded at our studio in Dallas with a few of our closest friends! We're looking forward to releasing these new songs to the world and are praying that they are strengthening and encouraging to your heart and faith!"

Vol. 24 from The Worship Intiative features "Count Every Blessing," "Abide With Me," "Battle Belongs" and more!

Cross Worship | Same God

"This song will guide listeners through a transitional moment in life. There is a choice to be made as they listen - will you trust God wholeheartedly? This melody is an anthem to joyfully proclaim God’s power although there is brokenness, chaos, and devastation around us." Original Master MultiTracks for Same God are now available! 

Cross Worship is a collaboration of worship leaders with a heart to reconcile the body of Christ across denominational and racial divides. As a collective team of individual artists, Cross Worship blends the strengths of different styles to create an eclectic sound capable of reaching a unified church.

Red Letter Society | Wonder EP

Red Letter Society is a group of worship leaders from churches across the Central Virginia area. We love serving the local church and are passionate about seeing theologically sound music being sung in churches across the world.

“In preparation for Red Letter Society’s upcoming album Manifest, one of the team’s goals was to write a song that imagines meeting God face to face. “Wonder” is a humble attempt to lyrically and musically express the awesome power of God’s presence.” Wonder EP features the title track plus “100x,” “Surrendered Hearts,” and “Thirst.”

Behind The Song | Passion's “You Are The Lord”

“And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness…” Exodus 34:6

It’s been said that worship starts with a revelation. God reveals who He is to us and we respond in worship. The Scripture is the definitive source to understanding who God is and what He is like. It’s when we have a clear vision, we can navigate the uncertainties of life.

Even early on in the story when God’s people were at a crossroads, God revealed Himself to Moses on the mountain top. In Exodus 34, God says that He is the Lord. He alone is God. There is no one like Him. There is nothing that rivals Him. He alone is the Lord, and in His greatness, He is also a good God. He goes on to tell Moses that He is gracious, kind and compassionate. He is patient and forgiving and out of His goodness He will bring about justice in the world. God was going to take care of Moses and His people.

In my own journey over the last year, there have been setbacks and disappointments. The world feels very uncertain and I found in my worship that I was hungry for a song that was not centered on me and my problems. It almost felt counterintuitive. I know God cares about me and my problems, and I don’t want to minimize and not deal with them, but I feel like I tapped into a greater power by saying to God, “In the midst of it all, You are the Lord. The disappointment or hurt is not the Lord. The unknown is not the Lord. Jesus, You are the Lord.”

I have actually found that when I look up and set my heart and my mind on God, I am transformed into His image. As I behold Him, I become like Him! He is not only changing me, He is also changing my perspective and giving me a renewed sense of hope.

The ultimate act of His power and goodness is revealed to us through the cross and the resurrection. Because Jesus alone has brought us from death to life, He alone is worthy of all our worship in every season. As Jesus followers, I pray our lives in the good and hard times would reflect the greatness of His glory and the goodness of His redemption to the culture around us. I hope we can be strong and shine bright.

Chris Tomlin | God Who Listens (ft. Thomas Rhett)

Chris Tomlin blurs the lines of country and CCM with the new radio version of his single God Who Listens (ft. Thomas Rhett)! The song originally appeared on his latest album, Chris Tomlin & Friends. 

"This song is centered around what sets God apart from all the other idols and gods in the world: He listens. Not sometimes, but always. You know, sometimes He is listening and moving in our lives and we have no idea and sometimes He is listening and moving and it is so apparent. Getting to write this one with my close friend Thomas Rhett was something I will never forget. I hope this song touches you the way it has me and reminds you that we pray to a God who listens to us, sees us, and loves us."
