On Friday, Thrive Worship released the album, “Pour Your Spirit Out,” recorded live in their home church, Bayside Church. Listen to the project here. Following the release of their 2021 EP, “Let’s Have Church,” this new album is the culmination of years’ worth of conversations among the California-based worship team about life, theology, society and values.
A press release stated, “ ‘Pour Your Spirit Out’ encapsulates who Thrive Worship is at its core: people who are earnestly and honestly seeking the Lord while wrestling with questions and seeing through a window dimly. Yet, their hope remains strong and is expressed with songs that are deeply personal and speak of glimpses into eternity – where the unthinkable awe and wonder of the Lord on the throne, the incredible hope of the gospel, the unimaginable joy and love we have in Jesus – shines through. ‘Pour Your Spirit Out’ seeks to lead the church in worship that transpires with the spirit and the truth.”
With this 16-track album, Thrive Worship hopes not only to encourage but to create worshippers. Worship leader Corbin Phillips concludes, “We hope this project offers something ancient and sacred and yet something new and refreshing by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Thrive Worship is the global worship team at Bayside Church, a multisite movement based in Northern California. Being part of the current fastest growing church in America, Thrive Worship is a group of diverse singers and musicians across seven campuses, expanding its creative reach while keeping the same core passion and message. Working as a worship family, it express the following approach – “a church for people who don’t like church” – with songs that are focused on unwrapping the gospel to everyone.
The band’s team said, “The uncomplicated and power-filled nature of its mission has seen Thrive Worship break new ground in the American worship landscape. After signing with Integrity Music in 2018 and releasing their debut album, ‘A Thousand More,’ Thrive Worship kept pursuing their call to equip the church with truth and faith with a brand-new EP released in September 2021 titled ‘Let’s Have Church.’ The six-track EP came from a time of overflow of songs being poured out on the team, and a constant theme of the early church arose, becoming the backbone of their latest release.”
The live album is named after the homonymous song released on “Let’s Have Church” – one that framed Thrive Worship's theme of celebrating the body of Christ. For more information, visit ThriveWorship.band and their Instagram.
