I’m getting ready to finish my first school year as the Worship Chaplain at Hope College – a beautiful small college located in Western Michigan that loves to worship Jesus Christ. Every year (for the past 20) Campus ministries has released a record of the services at Hope. 50+ chapels a semester and a Sunday evening service – The Gathering – almost every week.
This year our record is titled All Hail Christ – a brilliant song written by Josh Banner and Susanna Childress. The Record is a crazy mix of styles and genres within the vein of modern worship. From the music teams, to the tech crew, to the 1000+ students gathering with us most days it’s a big love affair. We hope you enjoy it!
A few places to start:
All Hail Christ – think Phil 2 meets Arcade Fire | chart
Hallelujah – midwestern punk rock worship
Rising Sun – great song from All Sons and Daughters and a new classic for us featuring a killer string arrangement by City Church’s Minna Choi.
Come Thou Fount – our modern take with the traditional tune.
O God of Our Salvation – Modern worship with a needed injection of Trinitarian theology! written by by Matt Boswell and Michael Bleeker.
