Emergence is a community of people who are committed to Loving Jesus, Loving People, and Plowing a Counter-Culture in North Jersey. As part of this community, a weekly gathering is held to proclaim Jesus as Lord, Savior, Redeemer, and King. At these gatherings, Jesus is worshiped in many ways: through prayer, teaching, giving, serving, and also music.
The band at Emergence is really four different bands who rotate on ay given week. The instrumentation is made up of different pieces nearly every eclectic Sunday. It isn't rare to hear guitar, drums, bass, keys, pedal steel, violin, mandolin, accordion, banjo, or timpani as part of a Sunday gathering.
While Emergence Band music is available anytime at EmergenceNJ.org, this release--the first as a "package" is offered as a way of hopefully encouraging those outside of Jersey, and possibly even becoming a resource for the larger Church, wherever that may be.
"Good Friday" was recorded live. Each song was one take. No overdubbing or correction was made in editing. As such, it is simply an offering to Jesus--one that we hope and pray you'll join in with.
