Ecclesia, a collective of young local artists and performers from South Florida whose passion is to reclaim the arts back to the kingdom of God, have released their debut single Hands & Feet.
"We believe that God is preparing this coming generation to steward the next revival and we are each taking a step of faith by actively pursuing this creative mission. The group reflects the diverse community found in south florida and aims to create media in the arts that reflects the complete cultural background of the church at large. We feel that music should represent the global church at large in the rhythms and style of the coming generation. God is guiding the church to remember the freedom or releasing praise through dance!
First and foremost our priority is to lift Christ within our culture. He is the only solution to all of the spiritual strongholds and problems facing our community. We feel that the best thing we can do as the next generation of believers is to come together and address the heart issues of each of these dilemmas. Our goal is to unify our local churches together to serve our community and impact our society instead of being impacted by our society. We believe that the worship arts are one of the main tools to unify the church while also influencing and infiltrating the mainstream culture. The arts carry the power to impact humanity emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually all while giving praise and glory to the One who has given these gifts to us.
Currently we see that at large, the arts have been categorized into sacred and secular thus forcing christian artists into a bubble that isolates their work from being seen alongside the work of their secular counterparts. We want to see our work encourage Christians but also reach those that may otherwise never listen to a typical worship song. Instead of isolating ourselves from the world, this next generation of believers must put on their armor and dive deep into the darkest parts of our culture and shine the light of redemption by spreading the love of the Father and fire from the Spirit.
