Integrity Music announces the signing of songwriter and worship leader -- Dustin Smith and the forthcoming global release of his DVD/CD Rushing Waters on September 10. Based in Kansas City, Missouri, Smith serves as a worship leader at World Revival Church. A pastor's son, Smith has been involved in fulltime ministry for 16-plus years, including the past eight years on staff at WRC. He previously released six independent albums including, Everything Inside Me, Open The Floodgates and Healing Waters, as well as teaching materials that cover a variety of topics such as "Are You God Conscious?" and "Function Before Title."

Inspired by his church, his pastor and his own personal journey in Christ, Smith has written and co-written worship songs that range in theme from adoration and surrender to spiritual warfare. These songs include "Yahweh," "Jesus," "Reign Over Me" and "Rushing Waters," a song that has moved beyond the WRC congregation to find a home in churches around the world.

"Dustin is a gifted songwriter and worship leader who has faithfully served the local church for many years," says Craig Dunnagan, Integrity's Vice President of Music Publishing/Ministry Alliances. "We are excited to partner with him in his growing ministry and we look forward to sharing his songs with the global Church."

Co-written by Smith and Michael Farren (Pocket Full Of Rocks), the song "Rushing Waters," was inspired by the picture of worship presented in Revelation 19:6 that reads: "Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of Rushing Waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting 'Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns'."

Recalling the songwriting process with Farren, who co-produced the Rushing Waters project, Smith says: "Michael had asked me what was on my heart. So I shared this scripture from Revelation… we were both overwhelmed with the thought of worship that was like the roar of Rushing Waters. What a great lesson for worship leaders! Instead of just trying to instruct people on what to do in worship, we need to start directing them on whom to look at! When people see God for who He really is, they can't help but worship loudly and extravagantly."

A free chord chart for the song is available at "Rushing Waters" chord chart.

Dustin Smith is a husband and father of three young children. In addition to his own independent recordings and his forthcoming release with Integrity Music, Smith has been featured on collections including Integrity's iWorship Now/Next double album. He has also authored several teaching resources and served as a facilitator on songwriting related topics for Additional information is available at
