"This Heavenly View - Songs for Worship, Celebration and Reflection" is a collection of original songs produced by Victorious Life Christian Church. Brian Barker wrote the songs and has been leading worship at Victorious Life Christian Church in Troy, New York since 1986. Brian has written close to a hundred original songs for worship.
Brian resides with his wife, Dena, and their seven children in Troy, New York and has served as an elder of Victorious Life Christian Church since 1988. He oversees the worship arts and several outreach ministries of Victorious Life and serves on the board of directors for Arise & Build Community Ministries. Brian has a passion to see our inner cities renewed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the faithful service of prevailing local churches.
"This Heavenly View" is an extension of Brian's passion for calling attention to the plight of our inner cities and the need for local churches to help renew, re-build and restore our struggling communities and serve the poor.
