FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ELEVATION WORSHIP CELEBRATES DEBUT OF ìFOR THE HONORî BY RAISING FUNDS FOR COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL
FOR THE HONOR Deluxe & Standard Editions Rocket To No. 1 & No. 3 Positions on iTunes


(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Nov. 23, 2011óCharlotte, NC worship band, Elevation Worship releases its national debut album, For the Honor, on Essential Worship this week.† The project, available in a digital deluxe version (featuring†three bonus songs,†five music videos, a For the Honor documentary, chord charts for all songs and more) and a standard edition, is available this week in retail stores nationwide and at iTunes. †Since its release For the Honor has reached both No. 1 (Deluxe) and No. 3 (Standard) on the iTunes Christian Chart, indicating its impressive impact on consumers.

Last weekend Elevation Church, one of the fastest growing churches in the U.S., and home to Elevation Worship, hosted a launch event for its multi-campus congregation of more than 10,000.† With generosity listed as a core value, itís no surprise the church designated all proceeds of the albumís street date digital sales to benefit Compassion Internationalís Child Survival Program, supporting the people of Kamwokya, one of the poorest slums in Kampala, Uganda.† In one day of sales, more than $25,000 was raised, fully funding the local program.

Compassionís Church Relations Director, Kevin Meyers, shares, ìItís been an incredible experience partnering with Elevation Church and seeing its unrelenting generosity and drive for excellence in all it does.† Even more impressive and inspiring is its desire to use its God-given
creativity to reach out to highly vulnerable mothers and babies in Uganda.î

Wade Joye, worship pastor at Elevation, shares, ìAs a church, we want to be known for audacious faithóbelieving God for the impossibleófor being a generation of honor; and for generosity, being openhanded with the blessings God has given us.††Itís an honor to know that our church body and this music is being used to touch others half a world away.î ††††


For The Honor is a landmark, live recording that captures the energy, excitement and commitment of a church rising up to change the world.† Worship leaders Wade Joye, Mack Brock, Chris Brown and London Gatch lead Elevation Worship and serve full-time at Elevation Church.

Written and produced by Elevation Worship (in partnership with Essential Worship/Provident Label Group) For The Honor features 14 original songs that reflect its collective life experience.† The songs were written in conjunction with Pastor Steven's sermon series over the past five years, and inspired by the churchís incredible journey.† The result is a rich collection shaped by community, in the context of one powerful move of God.


About Elevation Worship:


In the same spirit as Hillsong, Passion and Jesus Cultureómodern worship grown from a single seed then catapulted on to a national stageóElevation Worship is organic to its environment and yet unique to the digital age in which it was born.††It is a passionately dedicated team of gifted songwriters, musicians and students of worship boldly leading, as a single worship team, before six separate congregations across the Charlotte Metro area.

Under the direction of Pastor Steven Furtick (also a worship leader and songwriter) this Charlotte, NC church was established by Furtick, and eight other families, with one massive vision: to reach people far from God.††In just†six years, Elevation Church has become one of the fastest growing churches in the U.S. with†six established campuses in the greater Charlotte area.

The Elevation Church worship gathering is simultaneously broadcast across these†multi-city locations†via cutting edge technology allowing the churchís 10,000+ weekly worshippers to feel closely connected as one church praising with one voice.†††
