Baloche’s Touring/Workshop/Teaching Schedule Takes Him Around The World

One of today’s most influential worship leaders, songwriters and artists, Paul Baloche, is encouraging worshippers around the globe to take all the nostalgia and sounds of the upcoming Christmas season, and make it a season of worship. Seeding the movement, Baloche is offering a free digital songbook of both his Christmas Worship Vol. 1 and Christmas Worship Vol. 2. The latter album released last month amidst acclaim from Integrity Music.

Worship leaders, and anyone wishing to accept the gift, may go to WeAreWorship.com and login or register for free on the site to receive the Christmas Worship digital songbook. They can also watch on the site Baloche’s “how to play” tutorial of “For Unto Us A Child Is Born/Open The Eyes Of My Heart” (from Christmas Worship Vol. 2),which can also be seen at www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6QRucc4Glc.

In addition to the songbook and tutorial, Baloche will be the featured guest tomorrow during a live webinar sponsored by PraiseCharts and beginning at 11:00 am CST.

Baloche’s Christmas Worship Vol. 1 & 2 feature Christmas classics seamlessly married with vertical worship lyrics, and are an extension of his 30-year mission in ministry to equip worshipers and worship leaders with songs and resources that help them express glory to God. Produced by Baloche and Michael Rossback (The Brilliance/Desperation Band) Christmas Worship Vol. 2continues the collaborative, community aesthetic for which Baloche is known. The new album features All Sons & Daughters, Kathryn Scott, Lenny LeBlanc, Onajé Jefferson, WorshipMob’s Gina Milne, Madison Cunningham and Graham Kendrick.

Here is how the critics are responding to Christmas Worship Vol. 2:

Christmas Worship Vol. 2 is not just a Christmas record. Rather, it’s the sine qua non as far as Christmas worship is concerned.” – Hallels.com

“To sum up, these 12 songs, masterpieces, and works of art that Paul Baloche has recorded, with his friends who have sung with him or co-written with him, are truly breathed from the Almighty.” – 365 Days of Inspiring Media

Christmas Worship Vol. 2 is an ideal package that puts a fresh spin on well-known holiday tunes.” – CCM Magazine

“I was quite captivated by the arrangements, so much so, that as I listened, I seemed to forget it was a Christmas worship album and not just a worship album I was listening to… I encourage all of you to go buy the album!” – The Church Collective

Taking the new Christmas music and messages on the road, Baloche’s touring/workshop/teaching schedule takes him around the world. He will be leading “LeadWorship” workshops and concerts in Issaquah, WA (Nov. 13-14) and The Netherlands (Nov. 18), and a “MissionWorship” event in the United Kingdom (Nov. 20-22), before returning to North America for a series of Canadian Christmas events to begin Dec. 4.

Paul Baloche Releases Christmas Worship Vol. 2 Oct. 2

PAUL BALOCHE ASPIRES TO MAKE CHRISTMAS A SEASON OF WORSHIP, RELEASES CHRISTMAS WORSHIP VOL. 2 OCT. 2 (Via Hoganson Media)

Recording Features Collaborations With All Sons & Daughters, Kathryn Scott,
Lenny LeBlanc, Onajé Jefferson, Graham Kendrick, More

Baloche’s Touring/Workshop/Teaching Schedule Takes Him Around The World

One of today’s most influential worship leaders, songwriters and artists, Paul Baloche, releases Christmas Worship Vol. 2 globally Oct. 2 through Integrity Music. The album features Christmas classics seamlessly married with vertical worship lyrics, and is an extension of Baloche’s 30-year mission in ministry to equip worshipers and worship leaders with songs and resources that help them express glory to God.

For singer/songwriter Paul Baloche, writer of worship standards like “Open The Eyes Of My Heart,” “Hosanna,” “Our God Saves,” “Your Name” and “A New Hallelujah,” Christmas is a season of worship. With Christmas Worship, Baloche is aiming higher than nostalgia; higher than recreating the sounds of the season.

“There is so much content and beauty and theology in a song like ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ and ‘What Child Is This?,’ but most of these traditional carols are not vertical in nature; not speaking to the Lord,” says Baloche. “‘O Holy Night’ is a perfect example. At the climax, we’re singing, hands raised, to a thing, ‘Oh night divine.’ By adding a simple chorus at the end, a response to the beauty of the lyric, melody and the nostalgia of these beautiful carols, and then segueing into a first-person response in keeping with the Advent season, it’s amazing the shift in perspective.”

“Paul has a genuine passion to see local church worship leaders equipped to lead their churches week in and week out,” says Adrian Thompson, ‎VP Song & Artist Development at Integrity Music. “This project comes from Paul’s desire to see local churches engaged in worship during the advent season rather than just having a season of special church music.”

Produced by Baloche and Michael Rossback (The Brilliance/Desperation Band) Christmas Worship Vol. 2 follows the 2013 release of Christmas Worship (Vol. 1) and continues the collaborative, community aesthetic for which Baloche is known: Modern folk/worship duo All Sons & Daughters put a beautifully simple spin on “Joy To the World/Our God Saves” while Irish worship leader Kathryn Scott joins Baloche on “O Holy Night/Love Shines Bright.” Lenny LeBlanc, with whom Baloche wrote the Dove Award winning song, “Above All,” contributes to the reimagining of “The First Noel/Above All,” and Onajé Jefferson (Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir/New Breed) gives “It Came Upon A Midnight Clear/Glorious” a soulful gospel vibe. WorshipMob’s Gina Milne adds a sweet tenderness to “What Child Is This/Praise Emmanuel” and veteran British worship leader Graham Kendrick and Baloche reimagine their song “Creation’s King,” now titled “Newborn King.”

Another highlight on Christmas Worship Vol. 2 is “When Love Crossed Over,” a new song written by Baloche’s wife Rita and performed by Madison Cunningham, a young Calvary Chapel worship leader and daughter of Costa Mesa worship pastor Scott Cunningham. In addition, the traditional “Silent Night” gets the Baloche family treatment, with Rita and their son David (who also plays guitar on the project) joining Paul on vocals.

“In many ways, I’m even more excited about Christmas Worship Vol. 2 because of the collective, community nature of it,” Baloche says. “So many friendships and relationships have been forged through the years. This is like a ‘Paul Baloche and Friends’ project, which is such a beautiful thing. There are different streams and generations represented in this effort, and each one inspires me in different ways to write and sing and be better.”

In addition to the new album, Baloche’s touring/workshop/teaching schedule takes him around the world. Having recently returned from a concert/workshop in Manilla (Philippines) followed by the Experience Conference in Orlando, he will host “LeadWorship” workshops beginning today in Portland (Sept. 18-19) and in Fairfield, CT (Oct. 30-31). He will also be featured at a “Christmas In September: A Conversation With Paul Baloche” Multitracks webinar Tuesday, Sept. 22 beginning at 2pm CT. Following a workshop and concert in Issaquah, WA (Nov. 13-14), Baloche travels back overseas to The Netherlands and the United Kingdom before returning to North America for a series of Canadian Christmas events to begin Dec. 1.
