Often I get asked by a pastor or worship leader what I’m listening to and worshiping with. They realize that I travel the United States doing church secret shopper consultations and that I probably experience music and worship in more churches yearly, than just about anyone else to be honest.
So I hear a wide variety of styles and song selections. But I do have my personal preferences and songs that really move me and help me to connect to God. I bet you do, too. I’d like to introduce you to some that are my favorite (if you’re not already aware of them).
For the past 2 to 3 months, I’ve put YouTube on my TV and watched 2 artists, which I consider to be the best worship music in the United States. I think Elevation Worship is the best worship music in the US. I think Bethel Music is a close second. And they are very different, but I love them both.
Here are the songs that God has really used to minister to my heart and soul. I hope you’ll worship with them personally and consider them for corporate music.
Take Courage – Kristene DiMarco and Bethel Music
*** My current favorite song! This song is brand-new and isn’t even on iTunes yet.
Call Upon the Lord – Elevation Worship (My current 2nd favorite song)
Resurrecting – Elevation Worship
Here As in Heaven – Elevation Worship
O Come to the Altar – Elevation Worship (great response song after the message)
King of My Heart – Bethel Music (I know Saddleback Church has done this several times recently)
Ever Be – Bethel Music
No Longer Slaves – Bethel Music
It is Well – Kristene DiMarco and Bethel Music (for more traditional churches that want to breathe new life into an awesome hymn)
*** I’d love to hear from you. What’s playing in your earbuds these days? What songs move you?
