In April, Grammy Award-winning Hillsong Worship and Hillsong Church global senior pastor Brian Houston will visit the United States for the "There Is More" tour, following the release of a new book by the same name by Houston. The tour is scheduled to visit 14 markets in megachurches, arenas, and other venues throughout April, kicking off in Austin, Texas, on April 5, and concluding in Washington, D.C., on April 24.
Hillsong Worship member Brooke Ligertwood, née Fraser, who last week won a Grammy Award for her song "What A Beautiful Name," says about the tour, "Hillsong Worship comes out of the heart of our church - Hillsong - and the heartbeat of that culture has been pioneered and shaped by our senior pastors, Brian and Bobbie Houston."
She continues, "As a team firmly planted in and serving our local church, Hillsong, we are fortunate enough to be able to sit under the teaching of our senior pastor often and are thrilled that so many more people will get to experience that this year through the There Is More Tour!"
"We are really expectant that during these nights as we magnify the Lord in worship we will experience His presence powerfully and transformatively together," Ligertwood says, "And that as we sit under the Word of God we would be challenged, encouraged and inspired to live the lives He has called and equipped us to live."
According to Houston, his book "There Is More" promises to show how life with God's power "can exceed every earthly expectation." He says, "When you surrender control and follow God's guidance, you become empowered and equipped to do the impossible, reach higher, and go further than you could have ever imagined-giving Him all the glory."
He adds, "By building our lives around godly principles, surrounding ourselves with wisdom, and living for a cause greater than ourselves, we can effectively live out God's purposes and have an enduring impact."
The book will be available everywhere on March 20, and is available for pre-order at online retailers listed here. Each ticket purchased for the "There Is More Tour" includes entry to the event as well as a copy of Houston's latest book.
