 The latest musical offering from Every Nation Music, the Wings EP“, is FINALLY HERE!!! 
I’ve been so encouraged and inspired by the many new songs being birthed in the Every Nation family of churches. This particular EP was written out of a writer’s retreat in Nashville, TN with worship leaders and writers from EN North America from Cali to Kennesaw.  

 I am super proud to have been one of the many collaborators for this project. I had the joy of co-writing the opening track “Many Waters” with my dear friends Chris Davis (Mid-Cities) and Robert Ellis (Grace Covenant). That is only one of five fantastic tracks on this record! 

I believe you are gonna love it!

Get it TODAY wherever music is sold online and please leave a review!

What’s your favorite track?! Comment below!

One of the things I hope to do more of here at jonowens.tv is music reviews. I love music and I love sharing good music with others. I plan on sharing a pretty diverse spread of musical treats because this of course is the raw blend and diversity is the spice of life! I am super stoked to focus this music review on my brother and friend John Lumpkin II.

For John Lumpkin “devotion” is not just an album title, it is a way of life.

Cultivating and protecting a vibrant and consistent “private” life with God is essential in the life of every Christian.

For the believer this SHOULD sound like a no brainer. No deep mystical revelation required. However, the reality is many of us live as though we can produce the kind of fruitfulness God has called us to without connecting with the one who called us in the first place.

Before I get too deep into this conversation I want to make point.

I am not blogging on this topic because I am some guru who has always possessed the perfect blue print for private devotional life.

I don’t wake up at 5am to the voices of cherubs singing sweet melodies as they lead me into my secret prayer chamber fully equipped with knee pillows, bluetooth speakers, half melted emo-candles, and an amazing cup of coffee.

Most of my life I have not identified as a “morning person” or even a pre-lunch time person. However, I do identify as a husband, a father, and most importantly a follower of Jesus and the truth is I came to the realization that I would not be very effective at any of those things unless I intentionally “abide in the vine”.

WHY “THE RISE”?

20140130-150853.jpgWhat’s good?! We are so thrilled to see how many amazing people have backed our worship project!!! A couple weeks ago we got to introduce one of the new songs from “The Fall” EP at church and the response was incredible! We are convinced more than ever that God is going to use these songs in an amazing way!

As we move closer to our KICKSTARTER deadline I wanted to communicate more of the vision and expectation behind “The Rise” & “The Fall”. The video below offers a look into part 1 of the 2 EP project, “The Rise”.

Please check it out and join us in making this project a reality!

CH LA 2013

Three years ago, when I started writing the song “We Cry Holy”, I was deeply moved by the “call of Isaiah” found in Isaiah 6:1-8. This amazing encounter with God forever changed Isaiah in person and purpose. I wanted to write a song that would cause people to be in awe of a Holy King, be changed by a redeeming Savior, and be commissioned by the Risen Lord.

I had written the chorus, verse 1, and a bridge at first. It worked and definitely had some cool moments, but I did not feel like it was complete. After I would play it, Kelley and I would often look at each other and think, “it’s not quite finished”. Continue Reading…
