Ovation Worship is the worship band for Cornerstone Church in Midwest City, OK. Led by Worship Pastors Colt and Kasey Straub, Ovation Worship is comprised of worshipers, singers, and musicians who are united for the purpose of experiencing the presence of God and leading others to connect with Him on a day-to-day basis. Ovation Worship's music is written by a local church for the local church.
Since 2002 Cornerstone Church has been under the leadership of Pastors Ron and Carol McKey. Ron communicates in a way that speaks to today's culture, focusing on how to apply Christ's teachings to our lives, so we can experience God's incredible purpose each and every day. Ron is also a published author with a passion to raise up Godly men.
Pastor Colt and Kasey have a passionate vision to produce the original worship songs in a way that is accessible to the broader "Capital C" church. In 2019, Ovation Worship was formed to accomplish this purpose. An Ovation is defined as "a sustained or enthusiastic show of appreciation." That is a major facet of what worship is all about. It's about taking the time to focus on the God of heaven and earth and to thank Him for all the great things He has done!
As stated above, Ovation Worship is comprised of worshipers, singers, and musicians who are united for the purpose of experiencing the presence of God and leading others to connect with Him on a day-to-day basis. They do this through presenting passionate sets of worship at various functions of Cornerstone Church, but also by releasing albums and other merchandise that help people experience God's presence outside the four walls of the church.
The original sound of Ovation Worship reflects the broad, demographic make-up of the team, fusing young synth music with modern rock. However, beyond the scope of our sound, the lyrics and message of Ovation Worship represent a hunger and a passion for the presence of God. This presence then fuels us for the purpose of reaching the world with the message of Jesus Christ.
