The best kept secret in music

"A true heart sold out for God plus a gifting to lead worship and play incredible music equals one great choice for your worship ministry needs. Andy Kirk will light up and lead your audience into God's presence with his authentic passion and worship!"
-Terry Allen - Tennessee A/G District Youth Director

"I want to recommend to you the Andy Kirk worship experience. His credentials speak for themselves but more importantly he's a worshipper not simply a performer. I would highly encourage you to consider Andy for your camp, event or retreat. I have personally witnessed his devotion to ministry in tough circumstances."
-Dave Pafford - Northern Missouri A/G District Youth Director

"Youth ministry is full of suprises; some good, some bad. We booked Andy Kirk without really knowing much about him or his music. The experience was one of the BEST suprises I have had in ministry! Andy is one of the best worship leaders I have ever seen. Book him before he gets too big and you can't afford him."
-Clay Atchely - Youth Pastor, Arcadia Christian Church, Sante Fe, Texas

"Not only was his music incredibly moving and faithful, but it was also in the way he communicated God's word with others outside of the actual worship service too! Many people witnessed his humbleness towards God and how he is working in his music to lead others to Christ. He was truly EXCITED each chance he had to give Glory to God!"
-Michelle Nelson - Director of Music, Alleluia! Lutheran Church, Naperville, IL

"If you are looking for someone to connect with your students and challenge them in their walk with God, look no further than Andy Kirk. Andy is a passionate worship leader and speaker to this generation. Our students responded well to his music and message!"
-Ricky Morris, Youth Pastor, First Assembly of God, Hendersonville, TN - www.myspace.com/andykirkworship

Bio

“Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2

While some may consider an 18 month music project to be a grueling task, it was the opportunity and joy of a lifetime for Andy Kirk. By collaborating with some of the most talented and creative musicians in the Christian music industry, including producer Fred Williams (keyboard/Rebecca St. James, Brian Litrell), producer Rob Hawkins (Jackson Waters/Word Records) and renowned guitarist Scott Murray (guitar/Rebecca St. James, Hillsong), Kirk had the chance to embark on his first complete musical venture outfitted with the minds and sounds of true originality.

Kirk recognized early in the process that God’s hand was guiding the project. “With this being my first project, I was incredibly blessed to be surrounded by some of the true geniuses behind Christian music’s biggest artists and that was one of the most important things in capturing the heart behind the music. Fred and I were determined to keep the genuine heart of worship music, but to leave the door open for more creativity.” And creativity is exactly what happened. With a fresh and anointed voice, Andy’s desire was to write and record songs that captured not only the fervent heart of a young worshipper, but the loving heart of God. “These were songs that I began writing on my knees as an innocent 17 year old in my dorm room, but finished writing as a married man with his own ministry. The amount of time that I spent writing these songs and recording them in the studio allowed me to hear and see myself mature in God’s gifts. As you’re listening through the tracks on the CD you should realize that it encapsulates a lot of life changing events and that this project is a timeline of my heart.”

As Kirk shares these songs of surrender and passion, he travels the country leading and encouraging Christians to redefine the way they consider worship, and challenge them to take up their cross. “Worship is more than music and it goes much deeper than words; it comes from the heart and above all I want to be transparent enough that people are able to see what a work God has done in me. In the end, I want my music to be a blinking road sign pointing in one direction, to our Savior and King: Jesus. I can’t change people, and my music alone can’t change people, but one night in His presence is where warriors and heroes are born. That is the mission statement of my ministry; I want people to experience Him.”

With the help and attention of Steve Rice, Executive Director of the National Worship Leaders Association and Executive Director of Brentwood-Benson Music Publishing, and the partnership of Brentwood Benson Music Publishing, Kirk’s music will soon be made available world wide. Rice, a leader in the creation and distribution of worship music for the last decade, has been instrumental in the introduction of such classic worship songs as “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever,” “Heart of Worship,” and “Better is One Day.” Kirk is surprised and honored by the support of Rice and BBMP. “When I found out that Steve was interested in my songs, I was blown away. I am humbled and truly honored that a man with so much invested in the worship community would hear my songs and think that the rest of the world needs to hear them as well. I am blessed to have that kind of support.”

Kirk is thrilled and eager to bring his message to the public and create an important tool in helping hearts express their love for God. His desire is to write songs that will bridge the generational gap and bring worshippers together for a life changing experience, which his latest project is sure to do.
