Bio

Set It In Order, the first release from Abundant Life Church’s ALifeCMusic label, immediately breaks away from the pack with a multidimensional effort that is rare for church based label recordings. Producer LeRoix Hampton, III (Allen & Allen, Kingdom), adeptly captures the many flavors present in the worship experience at ALC; calypso, contemporary, hymns, praise choruses and spiritual songs. Set It In Order’s twelve tracks features tight vocals harmonies, urban and Christian contemporary beats, up-tempo and contemplative praise and worship songs. The end result is an exciting new release that crosses gospel genres and has something to please every palate.

Pastor Virginia Ward is the principal worship leader of the Lifestyle Worshippers, the music ministry of the Abundant Life Church in Cambridge, Massachusetts. A few years ago, she conceived the idea of a recording as a means of helping the Lifestyle Worshippers move to a higher level of ministry. After securing the backing of Senior Pastor Lawrence Ward and the eldership of ALC for the project, Virgina then sought the help of music producer LeRoix Hampton. Hampton is one of several key music professionals, music students and artists, who have spent time at ALC that she has gleaned from. She also invited friends from throughout the New England area, who are passionate about God’s people hearing a joyful sound, to be a part of the project. It is this collaboration of producer, musicians and singers from New England and the Lifestyle Worshippers ministry who came together to make Set It In Order.

Talented songwriter, Chantel Hampton, who also sang lead on several songs, penned most of the lyrics. The lead single is the infectious calypso gospel, "Our Rock”, which will force you to move and worship island style. "Fire" is pure urban infused dance grooves that rival club hits musically but lyrically, describes the Holy Spirit's power in our lives. "I Am He" and “Fairest Lord Jesus" will make traditional gospel enthusiasts feel right at home.

The diversity of this recording continues with “You Are My God”, a contemporary worship song that plays like a rock ballad. The most poignant moment on the album comes with “When The Morning Comes” which was co-written by Pastor Virginia from the words of her late mother in law, Gwendolyn Ward. Ms. Ward, a woman of strong faith, kept a diary through years of battling cancer. Her writings formed the core of the song.

Virginia believes that God is calling every believer to a biblical order that begins in the outer court. “As we offer up our lives to God” she says, “He receives it and burns away the impurities so that only the gold remains”. Set It In Order represents that outer court experience for the believer. “It is my desire that everyone who listens to this CD will make room for God to move in and through them and truly become 'lifestyle worshippers".
