Integrity Music’s best-selling Shout Praises Kids series, which has sold in excess of one million units, releases We Belong To Jesus (Featuring Jared Anderson and Friends) Jan. 14. The recording captures songs birthed out of the vibrant children’s ministry of New Life Church. Featuring Jared Anderson, youth and adult worship leaders, and an energetic group of more than 135 kids led by choir director Amanda Ferrin, the CD has 11 high-energy praise songs of faith and worship for kids of all ages. A companion We Belong To Jesus resource DVD contains lyrics videos with optional sing-along split and stereo tracks (background vocals and instrumental) for use with kids choirs in churches everywhere.
Produced by Michael Rossback (Gungor, Paul Baloche), We Belong To Jesus includes such worship favorites as “We Belong,” “Strong God,” “Counting On God,” “Light of Salvation,” and more, all led by the talented children’s ministry team from New Life Church.
“I absolutely loved joining New Life Worship Kids leading our congregation in the worship experience captured on We Belong to Jesus,” says Jared Anderson, New Life Church member, worship leader and writer of such worship anthems as “Great I Am,” “Rescue” and “Amazed.” “A whole bundle of beautiful moments and memories come with this and I pray they transfer and encourage this same intention in homes and gatherings around the world.”
Anderson, who wrote seven songs featured on We Belong to Jesus, continues, “My prayer is that our homes become houses of worship and that our families know how to lead one another by engaging in original, wholehearted awe of God. This project is a rehearsal tape for our heaven performance. I hope it serves well.”
New Life Church worship pastor Jon Egan (Desperation Band), who is known for such classic worship anthems as “I Am Free,” also penned four songs featured on We Belong to Jesus. Egan says, “As a young father, there are moments that sneak up on me and take me to another place. One of those moments is when I randomly find my kids singing God songs. They could be building forts or eating breakfast, and I hear the sound of worship coming from their lips. It is in those times that I remember not only my highest calling, but of God’s greatness.”
