Raging seas/we fight for every weary breath we breathe... The opening lines of Joe Frey's "Hold Fast" feel all too familiar these days. With terror and tragedy touching every corner of the world, it can be hard to see beyond the darkness. But the Vermont-based singer/songwriter presses on. Hope, after all, is his mission.
"I believe 'Hold Fast' is an anthem the local Church so desperately needs in a time when this world is in constant turmoil," Joe says of the title-track of his national debut. "The simplest way to put it: we need Jesus and He is willing and ready to be there for us. He is our Anchor. He is our Rock."
Hold Fast, as a collection, is quick to reveal Joe's own heart for the Church. "I love playing concerts and doing festivals, but the core impact for the Kingdom happens at the local church," he explains. "It happens when people come together to worship, fellowship, and disciple new believers. Without the local church the Gospel of Jesus won't reach the people it needs to reach."
