Springfield, Mo.- "Revive," the third of four singles from the upcoming album SOAR, the newest project from Influence Music, is now available.

"Revive" was written by worship leaders Kurtis Parks and Chris Douglas to express the vision of National Community Church-a church that meets in seven theaters in the Washington, D.C. area.

"People were fully engaged the very first time we played it," says Parks, worship director at NCC. "When all seven campuses give you the same feedback, you know it's connecting."

"We are blessed with incredible songwriters at National Community Church. They are a gift to us and a gift to the church at large," says NCC Lead Pastor Mark Batterson. "I've had 'Revive' on repeat for the last year. It's a song that will resonate with any church that is believing for revival in America."

"Simply put, the message of the song is the vision of our church. The song talks of repentance but not in a condemning way," Parks says. "It's [God's] kindness that leads us to repentance."

Produced by John Hartley (Matt Redman, Leigh Nash), SOAR will be available for purchase August 2015, featuring original worship music from leading church ministries around the U.S. The official worship release, SOAR, establishes a new benchmark, capturing the sounds and spirit of innovative churches across the nation.

"We believe in the power of revival to transform people," says Sol Arledge, Jr., president of Influence Music. "Kurtis and Chris have provided us with a song that encourages the hearers to seek genuine repentance and open their hearts to embrace God's mercy."

About National Community Church:
An interdenominational church that meets in seven theaters around the Washington, D.C. area, National Community Church was founded in 1996 on three core convictions: 1) The church ought to be the most creative place on the planet. 2) The church belongs in the middle of the marketplace. 3) God will bless our church in proportion to how we give to missions and care for the poor in our city. Operating in that vein, under the direction of Mark Batterson, NCC founded Ebenezer's Coffehouse in 2006, a postmodern well (gathering place) that has served more than a million customers. Most recently, NCC restored its newest location on Capitol Hill, an old Vaudeville theater renamed "The Miracle Theater," which now hosts four gatherings each weekend.
