On Tuesday, November 13, worship and praises echoed in the White House as Christian worshipers and artists gathered together after being invited by the US President. Videos of the worship service at the White House went viral on the online.
This meeting “Faith Briefing” was intended to give an update on all the faith-based initiatives introduced by the Trump administration. Christian artist Tauren Wells posted a video clip online which shows him leading the group leading in singing “What a Beautiful Name.”
This video was captioned: “What a privilege to declare the name of Jesus in worship and in prayer today at the White House. I was challenged, informed, convicted, & inspired at the #faithbriefing w/ many peers in the CCM industry. The church has a great opportunity to rise with grace & truth in this hour.”
Christian band Citizen Way also attended this Faith Briefing, posted a video to Instagram showing the group singing “How Great Is Our God.” The video was captioned, “#faithbriefing Lifting up the name of our savior Jesus at the @whitehouse with so many key figures in our @ccmmag family – our servant leaders in faith based initiatives expressed the need for us to support their causes around the nation (they are biblically based causes) and the need for us to be vocal about the fact that our only hope for our salvation, our world, our country is in our savior Jesus (they encouraged us to basically keep doing what we’re doing as well haha). Sing with us! Thank you.
Dominic Shahbon – Director of Events, Bethel Music posted to Instagram and expressed joyfully: “Wow. What a day. Had the honor to go the White House for a #FaithBriefing with key administration officials and faith leaders. Specifically, to hear about faith initiatives that are happening. Great things are taking place whether the media tells us or not! Let’s just say that I’m leaving Washington, D.C. stirred, hopeful, convicted and informed with TRUTH.”
Shahbon continued: “God is surely moving in this nation and through His Church. Let’s be a people that are not letting a day go by without praying for our President and this incredible administration. Thank you @paulamichellewhite for all you do and for helping making this happen. It’s truly powerful to watch and I’m moved beyond words.”
