Christian Music News, New Christian Music News Integrity Music announces the April 14 global release of Sand & Stars, a new full-length live album from Covenant Worship, the music ministry of the Dallas-area-based Covenant Church. Available as a physical album, standard digital album and digital deluxe recording featuring four videos, the Sand & Stars pre-order begins tomorrow (March 24) with iTunes® offering the project's songs "All Things," "Sand and Stars" and "All Honor" as instant downloads.
 
Unconventionally recorded under the stars at a church retreat, Sand & Stars reveals a more organic, reflective sound with new songs drawn from scripture. This includes the album's title track, inspired by Genesis 15:5, 17:3-8 and the scriptural covenant God made to Abraham in Genesis 22:17... blessing I will bless you, and multiplying I will multiply your descendants as the stars of the heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore (NKJV).
 
"All of these scriptures speak of legacy, the promise of future generations," declares worship pastor David Binion, who leads the Covenant Worship team along with his wife, Nicole Binion, and Josh Dufrene. "In Deuteronomy, legacy is referred to as the Seed of Abraham. The New Testament connects us to that promise, referring to all people grafted into the family of Israel... legacy has always been close to the Father's heart.
 
"Last October, Covenant Church celebrated 40-years of ministry and in that celebration, set into action a transition of family legacy," continues Binion. "Our Pastor, Mike Hayes, very beautifully handed the ministry to his son, Stephen Hayes. During the celebration, Pastor Stephen and his sister, Amie Dockery, shared a profound message about their personal legacy as leaders of Covenant Church, and the name of their message was 'sand and stars.'"
 
The title track to the new Covenant Worship album is the song that was written to support this declarative message of the faithful's legacy. It is a message that resounds with the Binions who are mentoring the next generation of worship leaders, songwriters and musicians within the 10,000 member congregation that ranges in ethnicity from Caucasian and African-American to Hispanic, Indian and Asian.
 

 
"The whole essence of the heart of what we're doing is this blended expression of young, middle age and older," he adds. "I need to be able to pass the baton to a well-trained young person and give them a higher starting place than I had... that is the whole thought process. Live with legacy in mind."
 
In addition to the title track, worship set-ready songs for Sand & Stars include "All Things," which goes to radio mid-April, "All Honor" and the closing "Doxology."
 
The full Sand & Stars track listing follows:
1. Gate Of Heaven
2. All Things
3. Back To The Father
4. Song Of My Heart
5. Love Has Overcome
6. Highest Praise
7. Persuaded
8. Sand and Stars
9. All Honor
10. Doxology
*Digital Deluxe version includes above tracks, plus videos for: Gate of Heaven, Back to the Father, Sand and Stars, All Honor
 
Covenant Worship will lead new music from Sand & Stars on TBN's "Praise" April 17, which will also be guest-hosted by David and Nicole Binion. The program will receive several re-airings throughout Holy Week. (See local TV listings for days/times.)
