Raised by 4 people in 1 month

Hi friends!

My name is Jena. I am a worship leader, songwriter, and artist based in California. Many of you have journeyed with me these past several years in music. I am beyond grateful for your support and encouragement, as well as your help making it possible.

I am very excited to announce that I will be recording a new EP this Winter 2019. I have the honor of once again working with Gabriel Wilson (producer) and the team I worked with for my last EP, “Boxes ." Gabriel has produced artists such as Martin Smith, Lindy Conant-Cofer, John Mark McMillan, and Bethel Music. I am truly excited to be able to share a new set of songs with you out of a new season with the Lord, encompassing themes of restoration and the power of God's love.

One of my greatest passions in life is coming alongside others to encourage and equip them in their walk with God. I love doing so through music. I love doing so through worship. My heart for this project is that these songs would provide language and melodies for people to connect with and encounter God through. I pray that people will be able to find a piece of their journey with Him in them and experience His hope, love, and healing. 

Stepping into this project is beyond what I can do myself. I am inviting others to be a part of the journey with me, because I value community and know I cannot make this project happen on my own. That being said, I would love to invite you to be a part of this project. One way you can do so that will make a significant impact is by considering giving to make it a reality.

It will take a base cost of $24,000 to fund this 5-track EP. Here’s what this covers:

+ Pre-production
+ Recording/studio time
+ Session musicians
+ Mixing (depending on the mix engineer)
+ Mastering

Deposits have been placed, meaning I have $12,750 left to raise! There is a likely potential for additional expenses, so anything raised above this amount will go towards things like additional production costs, distribution, marketing/promotion, and any unforeseen expenses. Everything that is donated will go straight towards the making of this EP. 

If you feel excited about supporting this project, please be sure to check out the "rewards" section below.

(*GoFundMe has a standard transaction fee of 2.9% plus $.30 that allows for credit card processing and safe transfer of funds.)

Thank you for your prayerful consideration. Your partnership is a gift and truly means so much. It is no small thing. It is an honor to be making this album in community. Please share this page with anyone you feel may want to be involved. Again, thank you for being a part of releasing these songs and helping to make it possible! I'm excited to do this together.

I can’t wait to keep you updated and see what God is going to do!

With love,

Hey, friends! Wanted to let you know that I recently changed the wording on my project page from "album" to "EP." I had chosen to use the word album to try and help simplify, as I sometimes experience questions around the word EP and what it means. However, I will be making another EP! My apologies if there has been any confusion. Perhaps a full length in the future! I'll be using the word EP now when relating to the project, however, I may use the word album from time to time, since an EP is a form of an album. :)

PROJECT UPDATE: A second installment has been placed, meaning we've reached 50% of the base goal for this album, AND recording dates have been set! The goal amount on my project page has been adjusted to reflect this. Thank you so much for your encouragement, prayer, and support! I am so excited to share these songs with you.

I’m excited to keep you updated and for what God has in store! Please feel free to share this project page with anyone you feel may want to be a part of this project.
