"I have seen you in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because Your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I Live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands." Psalm 63:2-4
Our goal as a ministry is to lead authentic worship, model passionate spirituality and support transformational teaching through creative and artistic media. While artistic and musical excellence is the goal, we recognize that worship is not just a style of music, nor is it relegated to Sunday services. Worship is the offering of the totality of our life in adoration and service to God! We aspire to be a team that lives what we sing.
