The only female duo in the worship sphere, Mission House present their second deluxe single including new song ‘Whole Heart’ alongside ‘Good God’, which was featured on their latest album.
Written by Mission House’s Taylor Leonhardt and Jess Ray with Leslie Jordan, ‘Whole Heart’ is a song about showing up fully to life with Jesus, allowing us to imagine what might happen if we didn’t hold any part of ourselves back. It speaks trust in God in the face of our cultural moment, where constant demands of perfection and pretending weigh heavy on our souls. The new song is paired with ‘Good God’, a track that Mission House released during lockdown and that they dreamt of singing with their community, declaring the unchanging goodness of God. This version was recorded in a room full of Mission House’s friends live in Raleigh as a testament to God’s faithfulness to bring us through any situation. For Mission House to weave new and old songs in such cohesive way whilst highlighting their congregational potential shows their songwriting’s steadfastness.
A 7-song live record served as Mission House’s official self-titled debut with Integrity Music in 2019, followed by their 2020 studio album, I Heard A Song I Can’t Ignore. The worship songs captured on this album were released the next year in engaging acoustic audio and video versions with guests including Josh Baldwin, Andrew Peterson, and Leslie Jordan. Now working on a live album scheduled for mid-2022, the duo continues to establish their immense songwriting talent and musicianship. The friendship and shared vision behind Mission House create a beautiful and tangible space for intimacy, where people can commune with one another and with their Creator through simple and joyful folk/rock worship music.
Ultimately, Mission House are driven by their focus on people, and making worship that truly serves others as individuals first, and the body as a whole secondarily. It’s not about hype, or flash, it’s just real, intimate, heart-felt worship that is full of depth and reverence that helps us all connect more with Him, and each other.
