John Mark McMillan Set To Release Kickstarter Funded Album Borderland March 4, 2014

 

 

 

Acclaimed singer/songwriter John Mark McMillan is gearing up for the independent release of his fourth studio album titled Borderland on March 4, 2014. This will be the first album released through McMillan’s recently launched record label, Lionhawk Records. Borderland was funded by a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year raising over $69,000 and backed by more than 1,500 contributors.

Borderland speaks to the idea of the ‘place between places,’” says McMillan, “which is where I feel I’ve been living as a person, as an artist, and as a believer for a couple of years. While few things describe the Christian experience more than the ‘place between places,’ it is also a concept everyone can relate to. We all walk lines between work and family, love and responsibility, art and commerce, passion and business and so on. Many of these songs are my commentary from a life between the crevices and on the verge.”

Fresh off the heels of a Christmas tour, John Mark recently released an original Christmas single via Noisetrade titled “Baby Son,” which has been downloaded by over 10,000 listeners. All proceeds from this song will go to World Vision’s relief efforts in the Philippines. Click here to get “Baby Son.” In 2014, John Mark will begin his headlining tour to support Borderland. Information on the tour will be forthcoming.

In addition to the anticipation around McMillan’s upcoming LP, the Charlotte, North Carolina native’s previous work continues with its success. In 2012, “Seen A Darkness,” from his last album Economy, was featured in the promo for the Grey’s Anatomy episode, “Hope for the Hopeless” (Season 8: Episode 12). His single “How He Loves” was recently listed by Integrity Music as one of the 25 most influential worship songs in the past 25 years and still today ranks on CCLI’s Top 25 chart. John Mark is proud to be an ambassador for World Vision and an advocate for its work in Bahkari, India.

Passion Founder and Visionary Louie Giglio to Release New Passion Talk Boy Meets Girl and Passion Talk Series: The Essential Collection on February 4, 2014

Nashville, Tenn. (January 8, 2014) – On February 4, 2014, Passion City Church Resources will unveil the new Passion Talk Boy Meets Girl and Passion Talk Series: The Essential Collection, featuring four key titles bundled together for the first time. The offerings are the newest installments of the powerful and compelling, 1 million plus selling Passion Talk Series from Passion founder, Passion City Church Pastor and visionary, Louie Giglio. The Passion Talk Series: The Essential Collection will feature a brand new talk, “Moved By Mercy,” which has left audiences across the country inspired on Chris Tomlin’s “Burning Lights Tour,” the most successful of his career.

Boy Meets Girl takes an honest and straightforward approach to dating and the challenges that relationships can bring. Digging below the surface, Boy Meets Girl uncovers potential dangers and offers practical help for anyone seeking a long-term relationship that is all God intended it to be. Passion Talk Series: The Essential Collection includes the popular, powerful and compelling talks “Indescribable,” “How Great Is Our God,” “Symphony (I Lift My Hands)” and “Moved By Mercy.”

Indescribable (Passion Talk Series) 
The heavens are telling glory of God, and their expanse the work of His hands. Night after night they remind us of just how small we are, and how huge God is. Looking out into the far reaches of the universe, we find a seemingly vast expanse of mystery and wonder, intricately fashioned by a God of unfathomable size and power. Just a glimpse of one of the billions of visible galaxies He has formed resizes us, shrinking us, and the world we call home, to seeming insignificance in an instant. But as tiny as we may seem, the God who knows every star by name also knows yours, and mine. And in the most stunning rescue imaginable, God sent His son to this spinning planet we call home – the Creator reconnecting us to Himself with life that never ends. Indescribable takes us on an image-rich journey through the cosmos, allowing us to peer into God’s universe to discover the amazing magnitude of His greatness and grace.

How Great Is Our God (Passion Talk Series) 
Your life is a miracle, and the creator of the universe knows you by name. He’s big enough to breathe out stars, yet intricate enough to fashion together the trillions of cells that make up every facet of who you are. The God who spoke the universe into existence made you, too and knows everything about you. From the smallest molecule to the situation you find yourself in right now, He’s aware of your circumstances and intimately acquainted with everything you do. And He cares about you and promises to carry you through. That’s where we find hope in the midst of the darkest places in life. The journey often complicated and painful filled with confusion and chaos. Yet, the cross of Christ reveals God’s promise to preserve and restore you no matter what the circumstance. He will hold onto you and hold you together, giving strength to those who hope in His unfailing love.

Symphony (I Lift My Hands) (Passion Talk Series) 
It’s staggering when we begin to realize that all creation is singing the praises of the One who fashioned and formed the universe. Yet, singing stars and earth’s ovation cannot drown God’s desire to hear your voice. In the midst of a miraculous and immense symphony of praise, God is still mindful of you, going to extraordinary lengths to give you life and breath through His Son. But why would God pay such a high price to bring us to life again? Could it be that we are prized above all creation…that we are loved by the God who made the heavens and the earth. Such stunning grace awakens our hearts in extravagant worship as we take our place in His symphony and join the chorus, on both the best of days and through the darkest nights.

Moved By Mercy (Passion Talk Series)
A father. A son. And a dance floor. How far can we run from God? Can we ever do enough to make Him give up on us? Moved By Mercy transports us to the heart of the conflict between the crippling feeling of guilt and the lavishness mercy, and shows us how a Father’s love can overcome all wrongs.

Passion is currently gearing up for Passion 2014, the gathering and movement of 18-25 year olds seeking to stake their lives on what matters most. This year they are set to host gatherings in two cities, joining together in Atlanta on January 17-18 and Houston on February 14-15. It was recently announced that the Atlanta gathering has sold-out, but Houston still has space remaining. For more information, visit 268generation.com.
