Veteran worship leader and songwriter Graham Kenderick has teamed up with Keith and Kristyn Getty to write MY WORTH IS NOT IN WHAT I OWN. Thwe single is available now to download, stream and watch via all the usual platforms.
Graham Kenderick says of the song: "Our western culture values us by how much we own and how much we earn but God uses a different value system which leads us to the cross of Christ".
This is the 6th song taken from Kenderick's forthcoming yet untitled album. The other 5 songs; 'Holy Overshadowing', 'Wake Up', 'Adore', 'Praise Him Moon and Stars' and first single 'Keep the Banner Flying High' are available at all the usual digital music stores including iTunes, Amazon Music and Spotify.
Kendrick began his songwriting career in the late 1960s. His most enduring accomplishment is his authorship of the words and music for the song, "Shine, Jesus, Shine", which is among the most widely heard songs in contemporary Christian worship worldwide. His other songs have been primarily used by worshippers in Britain. Kendrick is a co-founder of the March for Jesus. He received a Dove Award in 1995 for his international work. In 2000, Brunel University awarded Kendrick an honorary doctorate in Divinity ('DD') in "recognition of his contribution to the worship life of the Church". He was awarded another DD in May 2008, from Wycliffe College in Toronto, Canada.
Although now best known as a worship leader and writer of worship songs, Graham Kendrick began his career as a member of the Christian beat group Whispers of Truth (formerly the "Forerunners"). Later, he began working as a solo concert performer and recording artist in the singer/songwriter tradition. He was closely associated with the organisation Musical Gospel Outreach and recorded several albums for their record labels. On the first, Footsteps on the Sea, released in 1972, he worked with the virtuoso guitarist Gordon Giltrap.
Kendrick worked for a time as a member of "In the Name of Jesus," a mission team led by the Rev. Clive Calver. Calver went on to run British Youth for Christ and the Evangelical Alliance, and then left the United Kingdom for the Evangelical Church in the United States. Kendrick, however, has remained firmly fixed in the UK church as probably the most influential Christian songwriter of his generation.
