New Life Worship - Strong God

Colorado Springs, CO - New Life Church in Colorado Springs, CO, is known for originating some of the best-loved anthems being sung in the U.S. church, including songs like “Overcome,” “Great I Am,” “I Am Free,” “Your Name,” “My Savior Lives” and many more. Continuing its 20-plus-year legacy, the church’s New Life Worship offers 10 new songs to encourage the body of Christ to stand up and proclaim that God alone is strong on its live CD/DVD Strong God released TODAY from Integrity Music!

Tonight, the members of New Life Worship will be participating in a LIVE STREAM Q&A about the album, and YOU can be involved! Watch the stream HERE and submit your questions via social media using the hashtag #NewLifeStrongGod! 
 
For the new project, worship pastors Brad Parsley and Jon Egan (Desperation Band) introduce the next generation of New Life worship leaders and songwriters, while collaborating with well-seasoned leaders and writers like Cory Asbury, Michael FarrenJason Ingram, Meredith Andrews and Mia Fieldes.
 
“The health of New Life Worship is rising again,” says Egan.  “For five or six years, we were really just focusing on healing and restoration. But over the past two years, we’ve felt God calling us to raise up a new generation of musicians, worship leaders and songwriters.This new season can be seen and heard on Strong God.” 
 
The new music has also helped with the healing for those that suffered loss from the most destructive fire in Colorado’s history. About 100 families from New Life Church, which served as a temporary evacuation shelter, were affected by the fire, with some members completely losing their homes.  As the church is looking for additional ways to support the community as a whole, Egan shares, “We gathered around those affected, prayed and sang ‘Strong God’ together as a reminder that we’re all about declaring the greatness of God in the midst of trouble and despair.  We know what that’s like, so we can sing it fully knowing the truth behind the words.”
 
 “‘Strong God’ is really a banner for and over our church,” continues Egan, who wrote the song along with Ingram and Andrews.  “Father to the fatherless, Defender of the weak… With us in the wilderness, Faithful to provide.  It reflects our heart and vision for our church and our community.”
 
Produced by Michael Rossback (Gungor, Paul Baloche) and mixed by Paul Burton (Snow Patrol, Athlete, Delirious?) and Ben Gowell (Jars of Clay), the 12 new tracks on the Strong God CD and “deluxe” CD/DVD is available as an Amazon LP that includes bonus resources and more!
