Washington, D.C. (September 29, 2020)
Amidst growing political divisiveness in a year already filled with anxiety, Washington, D.C.’s National Community Church and its creative arts team, NCC Worship, encourage listeners to realign their thoughts and refocus their hearts by following “The Jesus Way.” Recorded earlier this year and now available globally, The Jesus Way album invites Christ-followers to “carry our cross” and “love at all costs” through every season of life.

Working with GRAMMY Award-winning Gospel and R&B artist/producer Greg Cox, NCC Worship recorded The Jesus Way live on Ash Wednesday with their church family and guests, underlining the album’s purposeful creation to complement NCC’s Lenten sermons and teaching resources. NCC Worship Pastor Chris Douglas explains, “The Jesus Way is a musical representation of the journey of understanding who we are in God, created in God’s image and part of God’s eternal kingdom… it’s a call to be Christ-followers, journeying together in love, humility, prayer, repentance and service to one another and our neighbors.”

Working with guest writers Mark Alan Schoolmeesters and Kierre Bjorn of Common Hymnal, NCC Worship team members crafted songs that range from praise to prayer, confession to exultation. All celebrate the life of Christ and His redemptive, ongoing work and the call to follow Him.

“As a worship team, we strive to write songs that address real, everyday life,” adds Douglas. “Songs of praise, songs of question, songs that speak to the prophetic… scripture-informed songs that serve our community and the larger Church through the ups and downs, tears and joy. For The Jesus Way, we wove together songs that we pray do exactly that, all focused on the life-changing presence of Christ as we conform to His image.”

The Jesus Way is more than an album,” says NCC senior pastor Mark Batterson. “It’s a prophetic message for this cultural moment. These songs are the soundtrack of National Community Church, but I believe that the grace notes will echo in your spirit. Our prayer is that these songs will help you take the next step in ‘The Jesus Way’.”
