Vertical Church Band Features
Worship Leaders from Chicagoís Harvest Bible Chapel

Album Release Coincides with
Pastor James MacDonaldís Book ìVertical Churchî

40-City Promotional Tour Launches Aug. 8

(Nashville, Tenn.) June 15, 2012óVertical Church, the newly launched Harvest Bible Chapel platform to comprise book, music and film projects, announces its first audio worship release: Live Worship From Vertical Church by its worship team, Vertical Church Band. The 13-track CD, delivered in partnership with Essential Worship/Provident Label Group (one sonic society, Elevation Worship), will be available July 31. The project will release in conjunction with pastor James MacDonaldís (Chicago-based Harvest Bible Chapel and national Bible teaching ministry Walk in the Word) new book, ìVertical Churchî and supported by a 40-city national tour which will feature members of Vertical Church Band.

ìThe phrase ëVertical Churchí reflects a movement weíre seeing take shape, not just within our church but around the world. Vertical Church is the brand that will extend and multiply our message through film, music and publishing, beginning with my book and this CD by Vertical Church Band,î shares James MacDonald. ìWorship is both mind and emotions and engages the whole-person. Nothing brings glory down in church as quickly and as powerfully as when Godís people unashamedly adore Godís great son, Jesus Christ.î

Formed from within one of the largest and fastest growing churches in America, Harvest Bible Chapel, Vertical Church Band comprises worship leaders Andi Rozier, Meredith Andrews, Lindsay McCaul, Jacob Sooter, Seth McConkey, Kyle Fredricks and Heather Headley. Its first label offering, Live Worship From Vertical Church, provides a window into the powerful worship movement emanating from the
Harvest community.

Recorded at Harvest Bible Chapel's downtown Chicago campus venue and produced by Paul Mabury (All Sons & Daughters, one sonic society, Hillsong UNITED) and Jason Ingram (Tenth Avenue North, one sonic society, Chris Tomlin) and executive producer James MacDonald, Live Worship From Vertical Church brings the listener to a place of worship (ìOpen Up The Heavens,î ìLight Shine Inî), reflects on the testimony of Godís work in our lives (ìGreatness Of Our God,î ìAll Gloryî) and ultimately expresses adoration and praise (ìWord Of God,î ìGod, You Are My Godî). ìAll Glory,î sung by Tony and GRAMMY Award winner Heather Headley, will be the projectís first single set to release at gospel radio.

The story behind the Vertical Church movement will be told, in part, via best-selling author, pastor, and founder of Harvest Bible Chapel, James MacDonaldís latest book ìVertical Church: What Every Heart Longs For. What Every Church Can Be.î (David C. Cook, August 2012)

Both the album and book will be co-promoted on a ìVertical Churchî tour featuring Vertical Church Band and pastor MacDonald to 40 cities nationwide beginning Aug. 8. For an updated list of tour dates, visit: Additional marketing for the record includes appearances at fall worship conferences and an aggressive campaign to promote songs from Live Worship From Vertical Church to churches via outlets including CCLI.
