Elevation Worship is a band that started at Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C. It began as the Sunday morning worship team for Elevation Church, and while the group has begun to tour and to play events, it continues to be a ministry of the church and to play there almost every Sunday. Led by pastor Steven Furtick along with worship leaders Wade Joye and Chris Brown, the band produced its first four albums independently prior to signing with Essential Records for its subsequent releases. It has seen some Billboard success and has toured with some well-known bands in the Christian music field, but the group has stayed true to its beginnings as a group of worship leaders first and a band second.
From the Church to the Stage
Elevation Worship is a ministry of Elevation Church and will continue to be so regardless of its popular success. This is a difficult tightrope to walk because oftentimes, becoming a successful band means leaving the "distractions" of everyday church ministry behind. Elevation Worship continues to see success in both worlds; while there are five consistent members of the band, there are many other church members and friends who continue to help write and play the music that Elevation Worship produces. In a mega church like Elevation Church, there are sure to be talented musicians who can help move the music of Elevation Worship forward, and these individuals continue to work together successfully.

What is an Elevation Worship concert like?
An Elevation Worship concert, like many other self-described worship bands, is designed to be more like a worship service rather than a regular concert. What that means is that the band focuses its music and breaks on bringing glory to God more than on the music itself, which means that the setlist can change from concert to concert. There is also generally a time of "preaching" either by a guest speaker or band member, so be prepared to hear a Christian message sometime in the concert.
