MOBILE, Ala. – October 14, 2010 – Gateway Church, from which “Revelation Song” was birthed and best-selling new artist Kari Jobe was first introduced, will release God Be Praised on November 9. The new album is the third Gateway project released by Integrity Music and Gateway Create.
Recorded live, the 15 new songs on God Be Praised once again reflect the passionate worship arising from Gateway Church in Southlake (Dallas), Texas. Led by Assoc. Pastor and Worship Leader Thomas Miller, along with the entire Gateway Worship team, God Be Praised features both energetic praise and intimate worship for a project that centers around the theme of “the victory we have in Christ,” according to Miller.
“I am praying that the music from this album will be songs for people and churches everywhere to declare the absolute, complete, overwhelming victory that we all have in Jesus,” says Miller. “Since He conquered all, we are more than conquerors and can live a life of complete victory through Him. When we live in victory and freedom, we live a life that naturally overflows in praise to God.”
Gateway Church, which began ten years ago with just 200 people, has grown into an influencing and equipping center that weekly ministers to thousands. At the heart of this dynamic church is its vibrant worship ministry that has become known for offering some of the most popular new worship songs of this generation. These include “No Sweeter Name,” “Come Thou Fount, Come Thou King,” and “Revelation Song,” the 2010 winner of a Dove Award for Worship Song of the Year.
Comprised of worship leaders, singers, and songwriters, Gateway’s worship team offers a rich tapestry of experience, talent, and perspective. Team members include Miller, Walker Beach, Rebecca Pfortmiller, Sion Alford, Zach Neese, David Moore, Jason Tam, and Dove Award-winning artist Kari Jobe. Filled with more than 40 contributors, the group is committed to expressing how God is moving through and speaking to the church.
