The Hillsong Church has been recording live worship albums for 15 years. Now their latest project, Mighty To Save, will release this week, coinciding with the 20th Hillsong Conference (July 3-7).
Hillsong Church Worship Pastor Darlene Zschech played a vital role in the creative direction of the album, which was recorded in March this year at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, where more than 10,000 worshippers gathered to worship God wholeheartedly and without reserve.
The whole church gathers in downtown Sydney to worship God and Im always overwhelmed and inspired to see all these people who represent lives that God has touched and impacted, give thanks to Him, Zschech said. The presence of God was powerfully evident throughout the night as His name was lifted high.
As always, this project is a snapshot of what has been taking place in our church over the last 12 months, and these new songs are infused with life, energy and a heartfelt adoration for our Savior.
Since 1992 the live recordings have become a key annual event for the church, and these recordings have subsequently brought hope to many around the globe.
Last year, the live worship DVD God He Reigns received a number one chart award from ARIA (Australian Record Industry Association), and during the past 15 years Hillsong Music Australia has been accredited with more than 30 gold and platinum sales awards worldwide.
Hillsong Music is currently distributed in more than 80 countries and territories, and the Mighty To Save album and DVD will be released around the world over the next few months.
How amazing is our God - He is truly Mighty To Save! When we understand this statement in its fullness, our lives and the lives around us are changed forever, said Brian Houston, senior pastor of Hillsong Church.
Our prayer is that you would be inspired to worship in spirit and truth as the message of Gods unfailing love and power is declared through these songs," he said.
The Hillsong Conference this year will include renowned keynote speakers and artists including Rick Warren, Delirious?, Israel Houghton, Louie Giglio, and more.
