Covenant Worship is the worship team of Covenant Church founded in 1976 by Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes. After more than 30 years, Covenant Church has grown to become one of the most prominent churches in the Dallas area. Covenant now facilitates four campuses in the Metro area, bringing hearts to salvation and creating leaders in the body of Christ. David and Nicole Binion serve as the senior worship pastors of Covenant.
Recorded live at Covenant Church, a 10,000 member, multi-cultural and multi-campus congregation led by Pastors Mike and Kathy Hayes, Kingdom features Covenant's choir and worship team led by worship pastors David and Nicole Binion. Kingdom also features Covenant worship leaders Joshua Defrene and Colin Edge and guest vocals from five-time GRAMMY Award winner, Israel Houghton.
The Covenant Worship team explains the journey that led to their latest album, Kingdom:
Our Senior Pastor Mike Hayes was talking about getting to a new place with God-a place that's more than simply a restoration of how things used to be...some place entirely new, a place of creativity and breakthrough that will flow out from our church here in Dallas, TX and affect the nations. The words that he shared in our church got us all thinking, and over the days and weeks that followed, we found that we're talking about something that we call a 'kingdom renaissance.' In time, these prayers and conversations became an album - called Kingdom.
We talk about the way that the Renaissance represented a wave of new art, literature and ideas that shifted a culture from the old world into the new. It's that very word - 'renaissance' - that jumps inside us. Pretty soon we're finding that new songs are unleashed, and our church is being taken to an exciting new place in our worship... The result? A collection of songs that aim to take the people of God to a new mindset, a new plane as the body of Christ. The simple, beautiful, life-changing truth is that God has a great plan in mind for His people. He always has, and He always does. The church of Jesus Christ now lives in a world of dramatic and rapid change, and God is giving us creative ideas that the world will look to for direction and inspiration. This is the heartbeat of our church, and the heartbeat of the 'kingdom renaissance.'
