Nathan & his wife Mary Ironside recently came from Hillsong Church, in Sydney Australia where Nathan was serving as a worship leader, music director & lectured at Hillsong College. Nathan & Mary Ironside now direct and consult to several worship teams on a weekly basis (including a church of 10,000, ‘Community of Faith’ in Medellin, Colombia) and lead a ministry called ‘The Stirring’, which is the heart & ministry behind the music to see worship rise in spirit & truth … hearts alive + awake + responding now.
“We were born to worship! We want to inspire both creative musicians & people everywhere to shake off in-difference, to reject apathy, to express their worship in excellence and authenticity.” Says Nathan.
‘The Stirring’ have been touring in the USA & Colombia, South America inspiring worship in local churches and encouraging creative worshipers through ‘Worship Encounter’ events, training workshops with music teams, conferences and one on one coaching with worship leaders, songwriters, musicians and sound engineers.
The music speaks for itself! ‘Sound of a New Day’ is an epic and intimate worship journey. 16 songs that will inspire you, and serve as a wake up call to the sound of worship in your life, including the songs ‘Bravo’, ‘Your Love is Real’, ‘His Burden is Light’, and modern day hymn ‘Father of Light’.
