Bethel Music recently announced the first and highly anticipated Bethel Music Kids worship album and DVD, Come Alive.
This is an awesome mix of Bethel worhip songs sung by kids! There are 10 songs and 10 videos that go with the songs, that is entirely led by kids! Not just any kids, but really talented kids! This isn’t one of those annoying kids CD’s that drive you up the wall – it is just awesome worship music that can be used as a tool to help our own kids engage in worship. I was the Sunday School teacher at my church a couple of weeks ago, and we spent some time just watching a couple of songs and worshipping together. Most of the songs on this CD/DVD we have sung as a congregation anyway, so the kids were excited to see these songs in video form – made especially for them and to help draw them into worship.
I love having it on at home as well – my two girls just dance and sing and it brings joy to my heart that we have this kind of media that we can share with our kids, that we ourselves did not have growing up.
Come Alive was released on December 11th, and you can find out more about and purchase over here at Bethel Music Kids
Hear the heart of this project with Bethel Music worship leaders/songwriters Brian and Jenn Johnson.
About Brian and Jenn Johnson:
Brian and Jenn are worship leaders and songwriters with Bethel Music. They are committed to raising up worshippers who will take hold of their true identity and pursue intimacy with God above all else. Brian and Jenn continue to minister in the US and internationally and reside in Redding, CA with their three wonderful children.
Here are a few things that Brian and Jenn shared about their vision in this project:
What’s your vision for this album and what do you hope it brings to the families who hear it?
Jenn: Something that’s really celebrated, especially with this album is fun, and I think that we can never lose sight of the fact that there’s a fun element to worship. Yes there’s a reverence and there’s an awe, but – we have this saying that God is as happy as He is holy, and I think that that’s what we want to champion our kids in – that God is so fun and He is so wonderful. Just seeing that in the kids, seeing the fun and the raw and the real, that they’re not going to be into any fluff – I think it’s just incredible to watch that unfold.
Have you guys seen any impact on the lives of your kids, or you as parents as a result of worship?
Brian: What’s amazing about the grace of God is that you pray for your kids, and you do your best as a parent and then, you get to see them respond.
Like the other night, my son woke me up and is just freaking out because he had this nightmare and he says, “Dad can you put some worship music on?” So he’s learned that when the worship music is on, it’s peaceful, and I’ve taught him and talked to him about how when we worship, when we praise God, He inhabits our praise – He comes. He knows that now and he’s asking for it. That’s when you start realizing they’re having their own experience with God and I think that’s what’s fulfilling as a parent.
What are some things you’ve experienced as you are teaching your kids to worship and hear His voice?
Jenn: There are few things on the planet that make me happier than watching our kids hear or feel something from God. Being able to lead them to hear God’s voice is everything.
