Music News: Today Jesus Culture Releases Church Volume Two (Live)
GRAMMY-NOMINATED JESUS CULTURE RELEASES SECOND COLLECTION OF NEW MUSIC: CHURCH VOLUME TWO (LIVE)
NASHVILLE, TENN. / SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (JUNE 12, 2020) GRAMMY-nominated Jesus Culture releases the second collection of songs in 2020 today – Church Volume Two (Live). This release follows Church Volume One (Live), which released on April 24th. The complete collection, Church, will release as a physical CD only on June 19th. Worship leaders featured during the recording include Kim Walker-Smith, Bryan & Katie Torwalt, Chris McClarney, Chris Quilala, Mack Brock, Derek Johnson and Jake Ithurburn.
These recordings return to who Jesus Culture was from the start; a family with a collection of songs that reflect who God is and what He is doing in their church and their lives. They captured lyrics and melodies that carry a new sound for a new season.
In an interview with Relevant Magazine, Jesus Culture’s veteran Kim Walker-Smith said, “With this record, we just wanted to go back to the start: We are a church creating an album of the songs that are for the Church and ministering to the Church. It really solidified that this is who we are. We are the Church. We are the body of Christ. This is what we love to do: serve the body of Christ. That’s also why we decided to call it Church. It just encompasses everything that we wanted to communicate.”
These songs were recorded live at Jesus Culture Sacramento over a period of four Sundays capturing this season of the congregation.
“It felt like a return to simplicity,” shares Jesus Culture worship leader Derek Johnson. “Capturing moments with our church family over the course of a few Sundays and singing songs we all needed to sing. It’s one of the reasons there are two volumes. Every song had something special, and we knew we had to release them all. How do you cut a moment with God? It just didn’t feel possible.”

The Jesus Culture movement began 20 years ago and continues today at their local church in Sacramento, California. Jesus Culture is focused on equipping young and old to transform society by living in community, growing in the Word of God, discipleship, and living lives surrendered to Jesus in passionate worship. They recorded their first album in 2005 at their youth and young adult conference in Redding, California. They have since released 11 live albums, not including Church, their most recent release.
