Unearthing the natural songs coming from a local body of Believers has become an exciting movement happening across the globe. Churches are tapping into their songwriters and artists and asking them to put poetry and prayers to music on behalf of their congregation. This exciting trend has birthed some of the largest worship platforms in the world.
In today’s episode our guest, Luke Hellebronth of Gas Street Music out of Birmingham, England, sheds light on a new way of looking at songs and their origins. His team’s “re-wilding” strategy could be a helpful model for songwriters and Christian musicians. Of course, the “strategy” aspect of this technique starts with making space for the Holy Spirit to guide the creative process.
