Syntax Creative is elated to announce a new partnership with InResponse Music, the music label arm of Saddleback Worship, a ministry of Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church. According to Outreach Magazine, Lake Forest, Calif.-based Saddleback Church is the sixth largest church in America with over 25,000 attendees and 15 additional campuses. Upcoming InResponse Music titles include First, a Saddleback Worship EP which releases worldwide on March 18 and is available for pre-order.

“With six original new songs, First is just a glimpse into the heart of Saddleback Worship,” InResponse Music manager Tricia Eisen said. “With pre-production already moving ahead on the next project, you can expect a continuous flow of original worship songs to equip and resource both the local and global church.”

“While many churches struggle to maintain membership, Saddleback continues to thrive and do things in excellence,” Syntax CEO Tim Trudeau said. “The partnership between Syntax and InResponse will strengthen an already strong Saddleback to grow its musical offering to the worldwide church.”

InResponse Music is a young label with just five releases in its discography to date but has already been nominated for a Dove Award.

“InResponse Music will continue to bring new worship songs, recordings and resources to market from the global Saddleback Church community,” InResponse Music brand and marketing manager Cathi Workman said. “We are currently working on a follow-up to the Dove Award-nominated kids album, Brave, as well as Saddleback Worship’s first full-length worship album, slated for release in 2017.”

“InResponse Music has a bright future,” Trudeau said. “Syntax is honored to be a part of that future, where InResponse and Saddleback will help to grow worshipers in purpose-driven churches around the world.”

Saddleback Church is a Lake Forest, Calif.-based, megachurch founded by Pastor Rick Warren in 1980. The church also has regional campuses in Aliso Viejo, Anaheim, Corona, Irvine North, Irvine South, Laguna Woods, Lake Forest, Los Angeles, Newport Mesa, Ranchero Capistrano, San Clemente and South Bay, California, as well as international campuses in the Argentina, Hong Kong, Germany and the Philippines.
