Bryan & Katie Torwalt
Bryan and Katie Torwalt are worship leaders and songwriters who have a passion to see lives changed through encounters with the presence of God. This is the foundational premise from which their music is derived. The songs they write are declarative anthems for the body of Christ that reflect their passion for freedom, healing, and the assurance that God’s goodness surrounds us in any circumstance. Realizing the likeness in vision and spirit, the Torwalts joined with the Jesus Culture Music label in the fall of 2010 as they began working on the debut album Here on Earth. As they brought pen to paper, they had no idea they were crafting one of the biggest worship anthems of this decade. The song “Holy Spirit” has since gone on to win a Grammy for best Christian song of the year and it continues to be a staple in worship sets around the world. Their second album, Kingdom Come, is full of dynamic songs of faith and praise. The latest offering from Bryan and Katie, Champion, conveys a message of the victory we have in Jesus, even in the midst of hardship, and points us towards holding on to the promises of God in our lives as believers. Woven from their personal journey they’ve walked through with their community, Champion is full of prophetic declarations of the ever-present God who has overcome for us. The passion and promise in these songs will bring encouragement and hope to anyone who hears them.

Compassion is another powerful characteristic of God. Every time Jesus was moved with compassion, something powerful happened. “And when Jesus went out He saw a great multitude; and He was moved with compassion for them . . .” (Matthew 14:14) When facing a tough situation, human nature is easily drawn to sympathy, but the reality is that sympathy is not always what is needed. Sympathy identifies with the problem or hurt, but it is not focused on the solution, helping you move forward. Compassion, along with God’s grace, is a powerful force that activates His answers for your life. Download the chord charts or piano sheets for simplified or corporate worship gatherings.
