Bashta unapologetically pursues songwriting, worship leading, creativity and even adoption with a vibrant, renewed passion for the heart of the local church, never content to "stay in the lines." Perhaps best known for penning the platinum selling worship anthem "Like a Lion (Gods Not Dead)," he has written songs that have been recorded and sung all over the planet by the Newsboys, Third Day, David Crowder Band, Passion Band, Jesus Culture, Bethel Music and more. RELEVANT Magazine says, "Bashta's music is simultaneously organic and arena-ready, filled with both intimacy and soaring cries to God" while Worship Leader Magazine says, "There is something that comes alive in your soul when you hear something clearly outside the popular and proven approaches to worship music." Bashta's music and vocals have been described as Rufus Wainwright meets Keith Green, passionate yet graceful. Educated at the Worship Institute of London and influenced by the ministry of Soul Survivor, he currently serves as worship pastor at RiverStone Church, just outside of Atlanta, GA and launched GoMotion Worldwide
in 2009, a non-profit ministry that marries music, media and missions for global impact. Bashta and his wife have four children--one adopted child and three biological kids--all six and under.
