Worship leader, Jon Thurlow, is scheduled to release his new album, Stand In Awe, on October 22, 2103. Even though Thurlow has recorded six independent projects throughout his career, this is the debut project for Forerunner Music.
Stand In Awe features eleven songs that were written or co-written by Thurlow and were recorded live at Forerunner Christian Fellowship on the campus of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, MO (IHOPKC), where Thurlow serves as a staff worship leader. The project will be available at all Christian retail stores and online at digital music outlets through New Day Distribution.
“The goal of this album is really just to create an on-ramp for people to connect with Jesus,” says Thurlow. “I appreciate catchy songs and good music, but at the end of the day, I want this collection of songs to help people’s hearts draw closer to the Lord.”
Stand In Awe gives the listener the experience of a live worship service and a collection of songs that will draw hearts closer to the Lord, while giving Him the praise He rightly deserves. The album launches with an up-tempo declaration to the glory of God, “Who Is Like You,” and further into the project “Take Your Place,” is an anthem that echoes Psalm 63 as a cry for the satisfaction that only God can bring. The title track is a powerful ballad that is a love song for God extolling His awesome glory. Stand In Awe features the first new original music album from Thurlow in over a year to the delight of his fanbase that has built up over the years.
