Press release:

Marcy Morman & EKKLESIA are back with a strong showing with 2 promo singles from the upcoming project, "My Secret Place" to be released in the fall of 2005.

"You Are" ... brings you into intimate worship with our Lord, Jesus Christ. It' lets the listener know that God has called you for a purpose and that He is everything that you wil ever need. God is our Provider, Protector, and our Peace. Lord God ... 'YOU ARE'

Bonus track - 'AMERICA'
With the memories of 9-11/2001 forever etched in our minds, 'EKKLESIA' comes with a Godly inspired "NEW" national anthem for AMERICA to shake the consciousness of this nation. With it's neo/jazzy feel that will have your head boppin, AMERICA reminds us that God doesn't need to bless America ... He already has ... BUT AMERICA NEEDS TO BLESS GOD!
- Barry A. Morman


I am always impressed when a group recognizes their strengths and chooses to focus on those. That is just the case here. Ekklesia makes a strong showing with this project, All For Love. Their strength seems to be with ballad, ministry driven songs. And so, rather than trying to tickle my senses with upbeat rants full of riffs and hollers, they have chosen to preesent some quality music.

I can tell from listening to this project that Ekklesia is certainly a pleasure to listen to in a live setting. Their music well thought out and not overpowering. Just some straightforward ministry. Most of the music is written and lead by Marcy Fickens Morman. Her deep contralto lends a sure direction to each offering. Fitting snugly into each empty pocket. Marcy's presentation allows you to truly understand and feel each track.

The CD starts off with the mellow but funky, Rescue Me, this song mixes elements from the "CHIPS" theme song and funky 80's bassline. Place on top of that a message of hope and trust and you have a recipe for real gospel flava. They follow that up with the vertically pointed "Its All About You". Other songs of note include:Dwelling Place, Raise The Standard, and my personal favorite, Song Of Triumph.

This CD gets stronger as it goes along. So, if I had to pick out growth areas, I would say that I would placed the songs in a different order. I believe that placing the stronger material up front would given the cd and entirely different vibe. But then again this is an independent project, and one that far exceeds many!! This one is definitely worthy of your collection. Keep an ear out for the name EKKLESIA!!

Bio

EKKLESIA is Greek for "the church" or "the called out ones". In the fall of 2000, God allowed us to come together, sharing our personal testimonies and experiences--knowing that collectively we had something to share with the world. We are a crew of kindred spirits--each of us is the tabernacle (dwelling place of Jesus Christ) who have been called out to show forth the praises of Him (Jesus) who has sent us! We are influenced first and foremost by the Word of God, our Pastors who guide us in God's word, and the exemplary life of Jesus Christ. What sets us apart is the fact that we are a real example of the "passing of the mantle" (the transferable anointing) an earlier vision that we are now living! It's a testimony that you must hear!
