Nashville, TN (January 7, 2020)
Internationally known for worship anthems like “Death Was Arrested,” “Abundantly More” and “Love Come Down,” the worship band from North Point Ministries is changing its name from North Point InsideOut to North Point Worship. Originally formed out of North Point Community Church’s high school ministry, InsideOut, the band now serves over 42,000 people that attend the multi-campus, metro Atlanta area church every week. As a part of North Point Ministries, North Point Worship is also connected to a global network of more than 90 partner churches and seeks to create songs that inspire people to follow Jesus.

With all new songs organically sown in the local church, and written, recorded and led by the North Point Worship team of songwriters and musicians, the band plans to release as many as 12 new songs internationally from North Point Music® and Centricity Music in 2020. The first two of these songs, “Just Getting Started” (featuring Lauren Anderson) and “Nothing Else Matters” (featuring Heath Balltzglier and Desi Raines), will both release Feb. 21.
“While the band started out of the church’s student ministry, North Point’s worship team and the reach of its music has grown significantly over the years, extending not only to students, but also to a diverse, multicultural group of worshippers well-beyond our network of local churches,” says Kevin Ragsdale, Director of North Point Music at North Point Ministries. “The new name, North Point Worship, like the music ministry and its resources, is meant to embrace the wider Christian community of believers.”
As part of its mandate to resource the Church with music and lyrics meant for both congregational and personal worship, North Point Worship records its songs in both English and Spanish. The team also began touring for the first time in 2019, leading its worship favorites, headlining its own events and joining artists like Jordan Feliz and Hannah Kerr on tour nationally.
