Brand New Album "Great Commission" Now Available!
Adam's Road Ministry Newsletter June 15, 2012
Friends in Christ,
We are pleased to announce that we have finished production of our 5th full-length studio album, “Great Commission”, and are excited to share more of God’s Word put to music with the world! We give God the glory for we know that we can do nothing apart from Him and His strength. The album will be available for free download beginning today. CLICK HERE to listen to and download the album for free. If you prefer to have a hard copy of “Great Commission”, we are now accepting pre-order requests. Simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and quantity making the subject line “GREAT COMMISSION” and we will send you a free copy as soon as it becomes available (in about two weeks).
As most of you will no doubt discern from the title, this album is themed around the Great Commission given to us by Christ: A call to go out and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19-20). Whether we are going out across national borders or going out into our local community, it is the same. We are sent out by a loving God to share His love story with the world. As those who have experienced this love first-hand, we feel compelled to share the Good News of salvation through the free gift of God’s grace (Acts 20:24). We have freely received and so we freely share. “Great Commission” calls the listener to not be anxious about ministry, but to put all things in the hands of God as we continue to speak the truth in love.
Continuing the same method that has been used in previous albums, we have continued implementing God’s Word into music—one verse at a time—to elucidate the teachings of Jesus Christ and His apostles. This album also contains a variety of musical styles to provide a fresh listening experience with each song. It includes a blend of upbeat praise (“Deaf Will Hear”, “The Church”), pop (“Great Commission”), funk (“Justified By Faith”), ballads (“New Creation”, “Believe and Confess”, “Wait For The Lord”, “Bread Of Life”), a number of moody songs (“Lose Your Life”, “Passion Song”), and some mid-tempo numbers to round it out (“Fruits Of True Faith”, “Serpent Lifted Up”).
This album features a number of new instruments and sounds, including harp, bagpipes, Uillean pipes, hurdy-gurdy, gadulka, dizi flute, xiao flute, Irish whistle, bansuri flute, bamboo sticks, djembe, and taiko drums.
It also features the talents of two of our dear friends and brothers in Christ, Jonathan and Dominick Shaw. You may remember their voices from the emotional “You Have a Home” on our second album, “Band Of Prophets”. This time around, their voices soar to new heights in a joyful song of praise (“The Church”) that will get your toes tapping. God is using these brothers in a powerful way to preach Christ Jesus, and we encourage you to add them on facebook and keep up-to-date with their ministries. Dominick leads the Dominion Choir at Faith and Power Worship Center in Apopka, FL and Jonathan has just released his first single on iTunes called “Thank You For The Cross” which we encourage you to check out. Another featured vocalist on this album is Katie Warren, wife of band member Joseph, whose voice can be heard on a number of tracks including “New Creation”. You may remember her voice from the song “By Your Grace” on our first self-titled album.
As mentioned, “Great Commission” will be available starting today for song-by-song or whole-album download on our website, and as with all of our music, it will be completely free of charge. The lyrics and chord-sheets will also be available for perusal and/or download for anyone who wants them.
Again, if you would like to pre-order a hard copy of “Great Commission” please send an email with your name, address, quantity, and the subject line “GREAT COMMISSION” to email@example.com.
As a reminder, we will be heading out on our 5th national tour at the end of this month, so keep an eye on our calendar at www.adamsroadministry.com/calendar so you can come hear some of these songs live! We thank God for all of your continued prayer, love, and support as we have gone through this process, and invite you to join us in fulfilling the Great Commission given to us by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We rejoice in the renewed opportunity to share more of the glorious Gospel with those who are still wandering in darkness, and pray for God to open their eyes, unstop their ears, and soften their hearts so that they too can know what we know: That Jesus is everything!
With love in Christ,
