"Whether it's the busyness and stress of life or even ministry itself, there is a temptation to get away from the simplicity of just being with Jesus," Matthew explains about his new song. "This song flows out of a personal desire to get back to the simple place of being with the Father where we find everything we need. We overcomplicate things. He just wants our hearts. He just wants to be with us. And that invitation is for every single person."
About Ascent Project
Ascent Project is a church movement preparing a way for people to encounter the presence of God in Fort Collins, Colorado.
With a love for the local church and a desire to see the body of Christ unified, Ascent Project is more than just a band; it's a movement of Spirit-filled, Jesus-centered worship for people of all walks of life. Birthed out of Fort Collins, Colorado, Ascent Project has the vision to create worship music and gather the church locally and globally to make Jesus famous. From their simple weekly worship gatherings in an upper room in downtown Fort Collins to large city-wide gatherings of churches, they have created a culture of passionate worship and unified community.
We believe that the breath of God changes lives. As more of heaven comes to earth, the atmosphere begins to shift. Our worship is birthed out of a heart for people to experience the presence of God and be changed by it. We call ourselves a movement because we long for people not just to listen to our music but to be changed by it and to live out God's heart for people. When we worship, God plants His heart in our chest, and our response is to love those He loves. Look after those He loves. Serve those He loves. As a movement, we long to change this world one person at a time as we give the church its voice and live as the hands and feet of Jesus.
