The 1st Retreat
Over 20 perfect strangers from across the US gathered in a beautiful church in Oak Park for a three day retreat not knowing what to expect. And frankly, neither did Justin and Dave. It was a grand experiment. Using some prayers, Bible verses, and liturgical elements, the attendees went to work collaborating on writing songs of worship to the Lord.
The three days passed quickly with the sweet presence of God resting over the retreat, and creativity was released. The final moments of that weekend was taking communion together and singing some of the songs we, complete strangers days before, had written together.

God Almighty, we thank You for feeding us
With the body and blood of Your Son Jesus Christ
Through Him we offer You our souls and bodies
To be a living sacrifice
Send us out in the power of Your Spirit
To live and work to Your praise and glory
