Behind the Music
The Powerful Force of Consistent Declaration is Unleashed in Church of the City’s “Speak the Name”
By Katie Clinebell
Church Of The City is a family of churches in the Nashville, Tennessee area that seeks to pursue the way of Jesus for the renewal of the city.
Founded by Pastor Darren Whitehead in 2013, Church Of The City quickly became a home for many of the artists, songwriter and creatives who call “Music City” home.
In 2016, a collection of these artist gathered together to begin writing songs in response to all they were experiencing in the church and around the city. Church Of The City’s debut EP, due in early 2020, is the first recorded collection of these songs. Recorded live with their church family and led by worship leaders Chris McClarney and Jon Reddick, along with a rotating cast of worship leaders and musicians, this project marks a new chapter in the Church Of The City story as its songs go out to the world for the first time.
