Free Worship is a Christian worship band serving the inner city of Chicago. The team ministers weekly at their home church, New Life Covenant. At the heart of Free Worship is a desire to see God revive His church and release a work of His Holy Spirit so that time spent in worship and singing would result in transformed lives. The name Free remains a constant reminder that we must always make room for the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Whether worshiping on a Sunday morning, recording in a studio, or simply rehearsing; Free Worship operates under one simple truth - we are all created for God’s glory. It is their sincere hope that any gift, talent or performance would disappear in the light of Jesus.
We believe God is able to do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). As we approach General Council, the AG Executive Leadership Team wants to join you in prayer for God to do immeasurably more in your community, in your church, and in your life. Your prayer request here will be shared with AG executive leaders as they join you in faith!
