It has always been our goal to offer high energy, inspiring music both as a way for us as musicians to honor and worship God ourselves, as well as to help pave the way for others to enter into His presence and experience the Spirit move in their own lives.
As of Christmas 2019, New Hope Worship had written 6 original songs, and we announced that we were beginning a recording project. 2020 circumstances slowed the process but we hope the album will be ready in January! Check out this update from Amy Banbury.
The songs on this album cover a span of many years, as writing our own music has never been a priority. We've written songs as the inspiration hits, and it wasn't until after the title track "The Way in a Manger" during Christmas 2019 that we decided to record them.
New Hope Worship is made up entirely by volunteer musicians. God has blessed us with many talented people over the years who have all contributed greatly to the success of our music ministry. And while we currently have approximately 18 people on the team, many of them teenagers, those who contributed on this particular project were as follows:
Adam Hansen - drums, keyboard
Amy Banbury - vocals
Jacob Gessner - bass guitar
Jeremy Gessner - vocals, acoustic guitar
John McMullen - vocals, electric guitar
Lexie Williamson - vocals
Vince Williamson - bass guitar
