But it’s a balancing act that the Baloche’s gladly attempt while continuing to transition into this new adventure. “We don’t know exactly what we’re going to do here,” said Paul after the move. “But our prayer is, ‘Lord, we would like to be available to the church here in New York, and to be an aunt and uncle or mother and father to these kids in ministry who are just getting started.’”

Over the last 18 months, Baloche has been featured at festivals, conferences and workshops in the United States, UK, France, India, Netherlands and Philippines. He has also plugged into a church where his son—himself a singer-songwriter and teacher—attends, and has begun building a new community, reaching out to churches like Christ Tabernacle in the Bronx, Redeemer Church and Trinity Grace.

Most recently, members of this community, including worship leaders and musicians from around New York and the northeast, joined him in creating a new album. This community includes label mates The Brilliance (John Arndt, David Gungor) along with Onaje Jefferson (Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir) and worship leaders/musicians from New York and the northeast. Vocalists Jennifer Holm and Madison Cunningham also make appearances, and Baloche’s wife, Rita, and son, David, round out the contributions.

The resulting project, Your Mercy (buy), which has already received a 5-star review from Worship Leader Magazine, is available globally in stores and on digital platforms through Integrity Music.

Recorded live in a Brooklyn studio, Your Mercy seems an appropriate title for this new season as this “worship pastor of worship pastors” depends anew on God.
