What the funds are for:
God has called us to create the sound of a generation ON FIRE for JESUS!
We are embarking on our first full length album! We recently are finishing up releasing a five song EP which was our first music project and are now BEYOND excited to take our music to the next level of excellence. The funds from this campaign will go towards funding an 11 song album focused on REVIVAL and AWAKENING. We believe God has given us the sound of a generation on fire for Jesus. There is so much uncharted territory in worship music, both sonically and lyrically, and we aim to pioneer into all these places with this album. The church is a DIVERSE body and we desire to produce a sound that represents its entirety through a multi-cultural sound.
After writing and praying over many songs we have cut the project down to these few songs which we feel encapsulate what God is speaking over our generation. Ultimately, we will only be able to release the amount of songs which money is raised for so we are believing by faith that God will provide the funds for the one’s He wants to be heard. The entire album will cost $11,000. $3,000 has been raised thus far, therefore we are looking to raise $8,000.00 for the rest of the album to be made.
Attached is a demo of one of the songs we have worked on for the album so that you all can get a feel of the direction of the project!
Who We Are:
Ecclesia Ministries is an arts organization affiliated with Reveal Fellowship 501(c)(3).
Ecclesia’s sole mission is to release Spirit-filled creative projects and music to reach and minister to the coming generations. We believe that the arts- specifically music- is one of the most effective way to reach youth. Our heart is to be a voice of truth in an industry that largely waters down the radical message of Jesus.
My name is Andrew Padilla and I am the Creative Director and Founder of Ecclesia Ministries. I started this ministry after joining the young adults group at Reveal Fellowship two years ago. God put a desire in my heart to equip other Christian artists to be able to have a platform so that Jesus would be lifted up in a predominately Godless art world. Additionally, I felt that He wanted to use my giftings in music producing and worship to create media that related to my age demographic that other Christian artists have not been able to effectively reach.
Since the ministry has started, I have focused my attention to discipling artists under Ecclesia. One of the goals for this ministry is to be able to equip artists so that eventually each one can be sent out to complete the callings God has placed on their lives. This development may look like spiritual accountability, songwriting mentorship, shadowing in the studio, and even working on small personal art projects. Collaboration is one of the main driving forces of what we do.
In addition to the artist development side of the ministry, Ecclesia also functions as a music collective. The heart for the collective is to provide an outlet for artists with similar vision to come together in unity and release Christ centered media. Currently the collective is working on completing this album, with all of its corresponding visual components, and expanding the capacities in our live performance setup.
How you can help:
First and foremost, we would ask that you keep the ministry in prayer- that God would pour out his word and creativity on the group so that we may be able to serve Him with excellence.
