The ministries of Compassion International, David C Cook, and Integrity Music announced their collaborative release of the FAITHFUL Project, bringing together authors and songwriters including Amy Grant, Ann Voskamp, Ellie Holcomb, Lisa Harper, Ruth Chou Simons, Trillia Newbell, Amanda Bible Williams and Raechel Myers (both from She Reads Truth), Christy Nockels and Kelly Minter. The FAITHFUL Project encompasses a book, album, podcast, ticketed livestream event, and multicity tour, “telling the story of God’s faithfulness to women throughout scripture to the present day.”
The “FAITHFUL” book and the album “FAITHFUL: Go and Speak,” will release Saturday, May 1. To celebrate the launch of this project there will be a ticketed livestream event presented by Compassion LIVE.
The songs on the companion album, “FAITHFUL: Go and Speak” (Integrity Music), were co-written by the book’s authors and a celebrated group of artists/songwriters and feature collaborative performances by Grant, Christa Wells, Nockels, Holcomb, Owens, Janice Gaines, Jess Ray, Minter, Leslie Jordan, Rachael Lampa, Sandra McCracken, Sarah Kroger, Sarah Macintosh, Savannah Locke, Tamar Chipp and Taylor Leonhardt, with production by Nathan Nockels. This unprecedented collaboration between artists and authors has led to a stunning collection of poetry and resonance that will bless readers and listeners for years to come.
Holcomb shared about her involvement, “ ‘FAITHFUL’ is one of those projects that shaped me. I felt power in coming together with a group of women to tell the stories of a faithful God through the eyes of women throughout scripture. In this project I experienced sisterhood and the beauty that comes when women simply speak about what they have seen of God. I can't wait to see how God will use these words and melodies to stir up hope and an invitation to deeper camaraderie and community among women in the church.”
“FAITHFUL” will kick off with its ticketed livestream event in May, followed by a multicity tour within the year, featuring the artists and authors involved in the project. These events are being produced by Compassion LIVE, established in 2014 by Compassion International, which produces life-changing events that share the message of faith and impact the church for children around the world.
