There is a certain spark of excitement and joy that ignites this time of year. A special celebratory spirit marking the birth of The Messiah begins to bubble in the hearts of believers. Families will unite in fellowship, children will glow with the anticipation of Christmas morning and songs of the season will ring throughout every chapel down every street. The excitement is the Thrill of Hope! Celebrate the birth of Christ this year through a musical experience with 714. 714 is a worship collective based at National Community Church in Washington DC who are bringing a new passionately creative sound to Christmas music through their Thrill Of Hope digital release available now on iTunes and AmazonMP3. 714 artistically orchestrates unique arrangements of some of your favorite Christmas carols and classics, as well as offering a new original Christmas song. Thrill Of Hope blends elements of pop, rock, and folk together with an eclectic blend of instruments for a holiday collection of timeless music.

714 has also created series of visually cozy Thrill Of Hope companion videos including “O Come All Ye Faithful,” “Joy To The World,”  “O Come O Come Emmanuel,” and “O Holy Night.” These beloved classic carols and holiday hymns transcend a pure and simple musical moment, while fully engaging the viewer in a captivating melodic celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

714 is not a band nor a church, but it is a way of life.  At the start of 2012, National Community Church experienced a night of revival that was rooted in a season of prayer, fasting, and worship. That night of worship transformed the passion in their hearts as a church, and planted a desire to see God move in revival in the city of Washington, D.C.  714 is a movement of prayer and worship at NCC, both in their corporate gatherings, and in their own personal lives.

714 music is a collective of worshipers, musicians, and songwriters serving at National Community Church and living out the call of worship and prayer to see God move. Kurtis Parks, Joel Buckner, and Chris Douglas lead the team and have a passion for songwriting, leading worship and stirring a passion in people’s heart for the presence of God.
