CentricWorship exists to provide worship leaders, worship writers & worshipers with songs centered on Him who is the center of it all.
CentricWorship was launched in March 2014 as a division of Centricity Publishing in Franklin, TN. The vision began with a question: what would happen if we invited a few worship leaders to a week-long retreat of songwriting in the Cascade Mountains? The result: 18 new songs written in 4 days with 8 of them being recorded and released on ‘ALL THE SAINTS: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat.’
Not long after, we did it again- this time, in the hill country of Eastern Tennessee. With the same pursuit of songs for the Church, another 20 songs were written in just a few days, leading to our 2nd EP release: ‘COME ALIVE: Live from the CentricWorship Retreat.’
In a music industry where the word worship has been morphed into a genre, we learned something different from these early retreats. When songs are written out of need rather than the purpose of meeting deadlines, quotas, or radio placement; God moves. When hearts, pens & affections are set on the goal of glorifying a mighty Savior; God moves. Since God’s mercies are new each morning, we will never run out of songs to write.
Our retreats continue to be a source of new songs sung in churches and heard on radio stations, which is an overflow of our first priority of exalting a worthy Savior. With new songs of worship, our hope is not only to resource the local church, but to create a soundtrack for believers beyond church walls.
