Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Acclaimed pop/rock/worship band The Neverclaim releases its first full-length live worship album, Encounter: A Live Worship Experience, Sept. 30 from Radiate Music. Recorded live at the Franklin, TN-based Vineyard Church just outside of Nashville, the album was produced by the band's Jeremiah Carlson (lead vocals), Mitchell Maldonado (guitar/keys), Chuck Hill (bass) and Beji George (drums), and expresses the band's story of being broken people who are now a testimony to the extravagant love, grace and goodness of God.
 
Encounter finds The Neverclaim reconnecting with their roots as a worship band and during a season where they are heavily investing into the local church. Carlson is the Young Adult Pastor at Vineyard Boise where Maldonado is Director of Media Production, George is at a Houston Vineyard church, and Hill is part of a Vineyard church plant in Bloomington, IL.
 
"Every story of hope in a desperate situation starts with an encounter with Jesus," shares Carlson, underscoring the passion for this project. "He alone holds the power to break off chains of fear, shame, anxiety and depression. He alone can redefine who we truly were made to be. He can take all the brokenness from our past and turn it into something beautiful."
 
Framing the overarching theme of the album, the anthemic title track gives worshippers language to call on God to intervene. "Through a simple encounter with Jesus, everything changes," says Carlson. "No matter what kind of life people have lived when they encounter Jesus, they are wrecked for anything else but Him."
 
The song "Testimony" on the album is the natural progression of an encounter with God, and is a collective shout of praise for Christ's redeeming work, while "Through Christ," first featured on The Neverclaim's 2015 album, The Joy, comes from a very personal experience in Carlson's story. Born out of an extramarital affair and sexually abused as a child, Carlson says he experienced anxiety, self-hatred and was suicidal.
 
"Christ alone has been my strength, guide and the only one who could speak the reality of my true identity in Him," says Carlson through the healing process of all these broken situations. "I am His child and through Him every battle I have ever faced and will ever face is already won in Him."
 
The album also features The Neverclaim's version of the classic hymn "How Great You Art," as well as the live versions of "Rules And Reigns" and "Our God Wins" from The Joy.
 

 
The full Encounter tracklist follows:
01)  Our God Wins
02)  Testimony
03)  Through Christ
04)  Encounter
05)  Where You Are
06)  Breathe
07)  Man Of Sorrows (Jesus Our Victory)
08)  Rules And Reigns
09)  Touch The Sky
10)  How Great Thou Art
