Debuts May 19 with Essential Worship

Essential Worship announces the debut release from Iron Bell Music. Titled "God That Saves," the project from this Kentucky-based worship group will be available May 19.

Comprised of songwriters and performers Stephen McWhirter, Joel Gerdis and Josh Glauber, Iron Bell Music is the fruition of worship nights held year-round for the community of Louisville at an area barn. Performing well-known worship songs along with their own originals throughout each evening gathering, the worship nights exist so that people can come as they are and encounter the presence of God. 

"God That Saves" was recorded live at the barn during one of those nights of worship.

Encompassing 11 original songs, the album's first single, "God That Saves," is currently at radio and already No. 11 on the Insp indicator chart. Written by McWhirter, the song was inspired from his own personal testimony. After a long time of abusing drugs and eventually spiraling into a serious addiction, it was one life-changing evening where McWhirter encountered Jesus and said he was given a peace like no other.

McWhirter shared, "I fell to my knees in tears, gave my life to Christ, and quit everything. In that moment, I came to intimately know the God that saves, the one who restores, renews and redeems what seems impossible. This song is my story, but it's more than that. It's a song that adores the lord and declares his name and nature, over every circumstance, as the God that saves."

In addition to their worship nights, Iron Bell Music desires to help worship leaders.

"There's not a lot of resources on a personal level for worship leaders," McWhirter said. "There's enough for helping them do the functional part of their job, but not for helping them be good at just loving the lord. That's actually the thing that is the most valuable tool they have: the overflow of intimacy with the lord."
